Hi Batosz! thank you for accepting me here. i just get to know about your e-book, thats a great idea, i hope i will find success in it. Actually i am trying to boost my skills in english and improve my level in Hungarian language, if i need any help i will let you know. Thanks 🙂
Cool to have you here! Hope you will find a lot of useful info here! 🙂
Thanks for adding me. I hope it will be a new start of language learning (Turkish).
I hope that as well! Fingers crossed! 🙂
Id say for a greek learning Russian should be easier than for the average person because of the shared history and i have a greek friend who managed it. Spanish seems to be another language that is relatively easy to learn especially for greeks as i know 2 that can speak it. French is fairly easy as its a romance language like spanish just be careful not to get them mixed up. As for german its different but shouldn’t pose you any problems after all that.
Good remarks! Thank you for your comment!
Hello Bartosz, I’m impressive of Your way of teaching 😀 It’s very encouraging to get start lerning laungages!:D (I’m sorry, my english is very poor (for now )) 😀
Thank you for your kind words! And don’t worry about your English! We all have to start somewhere! 🙂
Everything I can say is “Wow!”
Hi! Thank you for accepting me. Hope it’ll be helpful , useful and real help in learning English. How many languages do you know?
I am sure it will! Altogether I speak 9 languages.
I have tried to learn French and Italian but speak only English fluently. I plan to visit Finland soon and would like to speak a little Finnish. I am 75 so my short-term memory is , of course, short. I am amazed at the number of languages you speak. Wow!
Thank you and great to have you onboard! 🙂
Short-term memory is definitely a bottleneck of learning so I get it.
Let me know if you need some specific advice! 🙂
Lack of time – not sure which learning activity to do first when I do have time – eventually this leads to lack of motivation
It’s probably not lack of time but lack of any specific plan. Usually when you don’t know what to do, you end up doing nothing.
I would like to learn português as soon as possible especially conversation !!
Perfectly possible! 🙂
Drop me a message so I can give you more detailed guidance! 🙂
It is all about my teaching language. Students have be so careless about learning spelling properly. Perhaps, they need some techniques to overcome spelling mistakes easily.
Yes, using appropriate techniques – mnemonics for example, can definitely help with proper spelling:)
Lack of structure in knowing where do I go from here in my learning and being able to regularly assimilate the language to really know it.
It all starts with a question – why did you start learning a language. What was / is your main goal?
Drop me a message so I can give you some more specific advice!
Learning language (German)
Welcome! Let me know if you need some help! 🙂
Hello! I’m glad to join you. Mastering English language is a priority in my life, for I’m to be teaching it in the near future; this is my last year in the Teachers Training School.
Well, I hope the given strategies of learning will be useful for me. 🙂
And I hope so as well! Welcome aboard and nice to meet you! 🙂
I’m positive you will achieve your goal without any particular struggles!
It is amazing that you can operate so many languages.
I need to learn English as soon as possible, and it takes so long for me:(
That’s why strategies are so important! 🙂 Start reading all the articles and implementing the strategies I have described – it should definitely help! 🙂
Good luck and thank you very much for your comment! 🙂
Hi Bartosz, I’m very interested in your method!! I work in a small school in Chile, and I don´t have a lot of time for remember my english lesson… I always use TPR with my students and try that they make easy asociations with spanish words or funny poems, acrostics, wherever that sound fun 🙂
Sorry for my mistakes, I never write in english…
Cheers and thanks for create this page 🙂
Not many people have! 🙂
After you finish the course, let me know what you think!
If you need some further help. I’ll send you some additional articles 🙂
I have been working on Turkish forever. Not giving up, but could use some good methods! Cheers!
I’m confident that will find some interesting methods here! 🙂 Welcome aboard! 🙂
Hi Bartosz Czekala! I am a doctorate student and also a lecturer at a public university. I have to pass CAE exam in three months, in order to make a career and have a permanent job. Because I work as contractual lecturer at the university. It’s very big problem for me.Unfourtunately, my labor is exploited by others. I want to get away from this station. For this reasons, I have to pass the exam. I don’t know how can I study this exam. Wherefrom should I start to study the exam?
Thank you very much in advance. Best regards…
Hi! I’m sorry to hear about your plight!
I passed my CAE about 10 years ago and I believe it’s not that hard if you approach it the right way.
First of all, you need to understand that passing the exam very often has little to do with achieving the given level.
I know it sounds a little bit ridiculous but I’ve been there many times.
You need to concentrate on practising the actual exams over and over again. If you don’t take time to see how each part of the exam looks like, you’ll likely fail.
As for the practical tips, I have just one – extend your vocabulary! Most of the parts of the exam consist of exercises which heavily test your vocabulary.
You should definitely check out this site – http://www.flo-joe.co.uk/ .
Thanks for the book
I love learning languages and Linguistics. I’m fluent in English and Spanish – this one is my mother tongue. Nowadays I’m learning Russian and Esperanto.
Mi havas multe da amuzo lerni Esperanton, sed mi havas kelkajn problemojn lerni la rusan.
Я могу немного говорить по-русски, но я не могу вспомнить некоторые слова. 🙁
Ya sé que el ruso es un idioma muy complejo, sin embargo creo que en su complejidad radica su belleza. De cualquier forma, estoy esforzándome por aprender mejor cada día.
Agradezco de antemano la ayuda que me puedas brindar para mejorar mis procesos de aprendizaje.
All the best!
Greetings from Lima, Peru. ^_^
Congratulations on your learning! 🙂
It seems you’re doing a great job!
дай мне знать, если тебе нужна помощь!

La regularidad es sin duda más importante! Pero espero que voy a ser capaz de enseñarte algunas eficaces técnicas de aprendizaje!

Hello, I am an Italian descendant born in Brazil but raised in the USA. English became my first language because I grew up in America. Currently I am a TESOL Teacher in Rome and thought your FB ad was very interesting because it is always good to learn some more. In a few weeks I am going to Florence to attend a TEFL course specialized for American to teach English to Italian. I am always open to new avenues and improving our vocabulary is awesome. As we say in Italian…
Pleasure to meet you Andre 🙂 You have an interesting job 🙂 I hope you’ll find whatever you’re looking for on this site.
Let me know if you need some additional help! )
Well, I’m very interested in testing this learning method of yours. I’m studying for the CPE Exam and later on I’d like to begin studying Turkish just for fun, but I find myself stuck mentally.
It’s kind of like as my mind gets hit by a transparent plastic wall anytime I try to memorise a new word, express myself verbally (my mind gets just empty all of a sudden), or whenever I try to write any piece of something (making many mistakes of course and using a poor style or grammar as well)….
Hi Rosario! You should be proud of yourself. Not many people get to such a high level in language learning! 🙂
I hope I’ll be able to be of assistance. Please start by reading all the article on this website and hit me with some questions , if you have some doubts about anything 🙂
Thank you for sharing your insights with the world. I recently discovered your site, and I hope to explore your resources in depth soon.
I studied Spanish at my university, and I got good grades, but I am still not fluent. My biggest problem is listening.
I can understand most of what I read, and I can say what I want to express, but when native speakers speak at a normal rate of speech, I only hear gibberish. It’s especially frustrating when I know that I could understand a transcript of what they are saying. It’s discouraging.
I don’t know why professors don’t make this fundamental skill central to their teaching.
Don’t get discouraged. Listening is the most difficult part of language learning. It takes some time and dedication to improve it!
Please read this article https://www.universeofmemory.com/how-to-improve-listening-skills-in-a-foreign-language/ . Some of these strategies might be able to help you 🙂
This is my problem too. I have the vocabulary to get by even though I only started learning Spanish a few months ago and I can read the written word ok but understanding the spoken word is beyond my comprehension despite having a very understanding and patient teacher. There are four of us in class, all started at the same time but I am the only one that understands almost nothing of what is said.
I am going to try to listen to Spanish for a couple of hours a day to get a feel for it
There can be many reasons for that!
Here is article that might help – https://www.universeofmemory.com/how-to-improve-listening-skills-in-a-foreign-language/ .
Feel free to send me a message so I can help you in a more specific way!
I’m delighted to find this website – it looks like a great resource that will help me with me with the languages I have been learning (French, Korean, Mandarin) and Gaelic further down the line too. I came across some good links on here already. Looking forward to your future posts and emails. Thanks and good luck!
Great choice of languages! I hope I’ll be able to help 🙂 !
Let me know if you happen to have some questions! 🙂
I’m very happy to find your site, I was checking the articles from The Ultimate Guide but I couldn’t find some of them, I wonder if you have the Ultimate guide in a PDF file to download and share it with my students. I’m teaching English, and I’m learning Italian and French, I hope someday I can call myself a polyglot and get the knowledge and materials to help others with their language learning.
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for your kind words! Use the search bar to find all the parts of The Ultimate Guide. Or simply click the language category 🙂
If you want to download any of my articles in the pdf format, use http://www.printfriendly.com/ . It’s a really great tool!
As for being a polyglot – I’m sure you will get there. It simply takes some time and discipline 🙂

Thanks for your e-book Bartosz. Contributions to language-learning like yours are greatly lacking and are much appreciated. Keep the good work! Osasuna!
Thank you! 🙂 I’m trying to do my best !
The thing that I find hard is forgetting the basics, the more I progress through different Spanish courses and the more proficient I feel I’m getting the more I start to get tripped up over very simple things that I really should know.
It’s hard to diagnose exactly what your problem is without more details. Send me an e-mail and I’ll try to help you! 🙂
I’m very glad to be in this community.
And we’re happy to have you! 🙂
Very nice and interesting job. I hope this will help me with languages. I like so much learning languages even not have free time to read. I am from Greece and try to learn four languages at same time.
Those are: russian, spanish,french and german!
You have very ambitious goal! 🙂
But I really do hope that you didn’t start learning all of them from the scratch and at the same time.
It might be really difficult then 🙂
It is amazing that you can operate so many languages.
I need to learn English as soon as posible, and it takes so long for me:(
It’s just the matter of using the right methods and devoting a lot of time. Don’t worry, you’ll get there! 🙂
Wow i’m challeged,i can offer English to anyone whose is interested ,telephonically or other around.Bartosz you’re doing great you’re an inspiration keep it up.
