These are great insights for functional applications within language learning which can be applied in your teaching and learning environments.

Natalia Aleynikova's curator insight, November 6, 2014 11:37 PM

Learning #languages is an essential part of a modern lifestyle. Even if you are not a #linguist, knowing a foreign language can become a real asset for your #business and career. Professional language learners give you some advice how to make the learning process easier and much more effective.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, November 22, 2014 12:42 AM

One of the most common barriers to conversing in a new language is the fear of making mistakes. So, don't worry about making mistakes. Native speakers are like doting parents: any attempt from you to communicate in their language is objective proof that you are a gifted genius. They’ll appreciate your effort and even help you.
