Hi Steve. Greetings from Ontario! I am wondering if you are familiar with the new Fluenz language learning programs? If so, what is your impression of them?
I know nothing about them.
I’m sure that you would find them no different than the other language programs such as Michel Thomas because they are very grammar heavy – that is they spend a lot of time showing you *why* things are the way they are so that you can enter *into* the language instead of having to figure it all out on your own.
We need not figure it out ALL on our own. There are so many grammar resources to help us, in books and on the internet. But content and input is still king to my mind.
dear Steve, I have been watching a lot of your youtube videos on language learning. I am currently learning russian. I just wonder about your listning and reading method, do you read and listen to content were you don’t understand anything? I have tried a bit of your method, I have tried to watch atleast an hour of Russian tv everyday.
I don’t listen to content I don’t understand. I listen to content where I can read the text. look up words, and gradually get to understand it. As soon as possible I listen to authentic content. Go to LingQ to find content at your level in Russian.

In a comment to a previous post, Stefan asked me how many words I thought I could learn in a day. We had quite a discussion on this, and I have given it some more thought. If I take my own Czech studies, I have been at it about 6 months. It is all…
