|Name:||Street-Smart Language Learning™|
I speak 8 languages to varying degrees of proficiency. In rough order from strongest to weakest, the languages are English, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and German. I'd like to learn Korean, Russian, and Arabic as well. I write a blog about language learning called Street-Smart Language Learning™ and am currently working on a book of the same name.

Language learning on your own is hard, right?
You're never going to make it without a class, a teacher, and a test.
How could you possibly teach yourself a language and do it well?
Here's the truth:
You CAN learn a language alone successfully.
How do I know?
Because I did.
You don't have to experiment and make those same mistakes I did.
You have Successful Self-Study to guide you.
