Chilled out Success with Language Surfer Ron Gullekson

“Languages are ultimately designed to bring people together.”

Welcome to an inspiring interview with one of my favourite language bloggers: Ron Gullekson from Language Surfer. His relaxed language learning attitude will make you so comfortable. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why Ron's blog is called Language Surfer
  • How formal language learners all know what "drawing a line down the middle" means :)
  • How Ron structures his on curriculum for language learning
  • Which level of language learning you might be at if you studied Arabic for 8 hours a day..for 64 weeks!
  • Free listening, and how soon you can start doing this in your own study routine
  • How to create your organic SRS system
"I want to get used to the idea of being lost as soon as possible."Article of the weekTips of the Week

I had secretly expected Ron to choose tip 3 as a music fan, but his own choice was tip 1: Get out and talk to people.

1) Meet up in conversation groups offline

2) Find local podcasts by switching itunes to the country's store

3) Learn with music on Spotify
