Language Learning Book Review

Check out our language learning book reviews for analysis and assessment of various language learning books.

Our first offering is an indepth review of The Third Ear - You Can Learn Any Language by Chris Lonsdale.

This book is required reading for any learner of any language, and particularly useful for those that feel it is a tough slog, or that they 'cannot do it'. I particularly like the book because we agree on so many points, including the value of learning loads of vocabulary.

The Third Ear - You Can Learn Any Language - a language learning book review of a book aimed at anyone learning a foreign language.

Click to read the review. Here are some soundbites from it:
  • You CAN learn any language - you have already learnt one.
  • Don't grammaticate to the point of forgetting to communicate. Language is about communicating with people, relaying meaning.
  • Language learning is a TOOL, not a scientific study where absolute precision is necessary
  • Learn to recognize the patterns to languages, they are all about repeating patterns
  • ...and loads more...
