Learning a Language

If you want to (or have to) learn a language but don’t want to spend days on end, bored to tears, studying grammar and conjugating verbs, then this book is for you.

I want you to enjoy learning your target language and my techniques ensure that you learn in the most natural, practical way, based on common sense and coupled with large doses of British humour.

I’ll help you to break tasks down to manageable bite sized pieces that you are then motivated to complete, and I’ll teach you how to avoid boredom and the desire to give up.

If you didn’t, you’re in luck. This little book might be just what you need. By using these simple but effective methods, you will improve your capacity to learn, understand more and remember for longer. You’ll start getting better grades, start feeling better about your classes and become a better student.

The Sorites Principle

Everyone knows the stuff about ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’, but few of us actually make the most of it. This is because it’s misleading. The successful journey of a thousand miles begins with a lot of planning and preparation for those difficult times to come. It also involves learning how to cultivate a resilient perseverance that will keep you going when you start to confuse slow progress with no progress. This book looks at how to apply the Sorites Principle (that the constant application of insignificant actions when coherently focussed will inevitably lead to dramatically significant results) and how to overcome the feelings of futility, procrastination and the inevitable lack of willpower.
