Learn a Language the Fast, Easy Way

This page is in the early stages of construction.

This page is primarily for readers of my book, Fast, Easy Way to Learn a Language but can be enjoyed by anyone who needs to learn a language or loves learning foreign languages. I will be posting new information on a regular basis so visit from time to time to find new information and new links to useful websites.

In my book, I tell how I was fascinated with the idea of learning foreign languages from the age of three or four. I persuaded two girls who lived next door to teach me French before I could read or write. The girls were learning French at school and enjoyed playing school with me. I used to ask my father to read the written notes they gave me but his pronunciation was nothing like what they had told me.

You can read my story at this link. This information was used as the basis for the introduction for my book.
