  • Fun with Languages: Tips and Tricks to Master Foreign Languages Easily on Jan. 26, 2018

    As someone who has tried to learn a language for some time and then, given up, this book proved to be very useful for me. Monica Di Santi made it all so easy. One of the best parts of this book is that the author encourages one to learn from what he/she loves. Listening to songs, audiobooks, watching movies and playing games are things that most of us love to do. She shows us exactly how we can get double benefit through these; having fun and learning a language at the same time. Secondly, this book is more like a face-to-face conversation with an expert who guides you on how to master foreign languages with tasks that are enjoyable and tips that in fact, spike up your motivational level. She has emphasized on how one should reward oneself for the little efforts, laugh, share jokes and have quality time with friends and family. She does not burden the reader with tasks or assignments but instead provides support in a way that automatically inspires one to work hard. Lastly, I loved how the author has explained that we can use things that we use on a daily basis or for entertainment, to improve our language skills. Mobile phones, blogs, videos, movies, songs, newspaper, articles, forums, internet, games and so much more is available to us and we can make use of them to our benefit, all without difficulty. This book taught me that I can truly have a lot of fun while learning languages and made me realize that my struggle will be worthwhile. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who intends to or is leaning a foreign language, as I believe that this book will help anyone as much as it has helped me. A great book for learners, it is!
