Can English speakers learn languages?

Of course English speakers can learn languages, but mostly  they don’t. Why? Here is a guest article I wrote on the subject recently for an interesting new blog on language learning called Lingholic. 

This blog belongs to Sam, a fellow Canadian polyglot who lives in Ottawa. He manages to combine his passion for learning languages, his blog and a full time job. With this growing army of language bloggers, the world is slowly becoming more open to the joys of learning languages, or at least I hope so!

    Great article ! I agree learning a language is like any other skill. It requires determination and hard work. A lot of English native speakers will be truly impressed if a person can speak an ‘exotic’ Asian language. But it’s as tough for an English speaker to learn any language as it is a other language speaker to learn English. However, we rarely give them as much credit.
