Links from the Show:Tips of the Week

As always, our guest was hugely impressed with our selection of tips. Brian chose tip 3 as his favourite, because it’s the one way you’re guaranteed to build sentences.

  1. Slow down YouTube videos: Click the cog in bottom right hand corner of video, click speed, and slow down or speed up.
  2. Use Snapchat: Record multilingual clips throughout the day and they’re only there for 24 hours, no comments, no pressure on mistakes!
  3. Find a study buddy to text: Use HelloTalk, Tandem, MeetUp, Facebook groups etc to find a study buddy and start a WhatsApp or iMessage thread where you vouch to only use the language you’re both studying.

Do whatever it takes in this hour so you’ll want to learn another hour tomorrow. (Anthony Lauder)
