Language learning resources


I won’t list here every resource available. I will only recommend things that I use or for some reason don’t but where I see the value. You won’t see any flashcard apps/websites here, because that’s not how I learn languages.

Resources I use and love:

My favorite language learning service is italki,where you find teachers and tutors from all over the world. Use this link to sign up and once you book a lesson, you get $10 for free to use on any lesson (and so do I!).

Podcasts and blogs about languages and learning (that I listen or read regularly):

Creative language learning podcast and Fluent website – A website and podcast are hosted by Kerstin who speaks 8 languages and is also a language teacher. No quick fluency promises (the way I like it).

I will teach you a language podcast and blog are full of good advice and I agree on many things with Olly, so I enjoy listening and reading a lot.

Other blogs and podcasts

Fluent in 3 months blog seemed a bit arrogant to me at first, but I occasionally read posts and there are a lot of good tips and I like the idea of making language learning more approachable. It concentrates on speaking and not studying much grammar, which I don’t completely agree with. However, if this is the style that works for you, you will most likely find it amazing.
