What is this blog about?

I've been studying languages for about sixteen years, and in that time I've managed to learn eight of them to the point when I can say that I "speak" those languages. When you speak eight languages, you're always getting asked how you did it, and I'm currently in the process of writing a book - entitled, as you may have guessed, Street-Smart Language Learning. As I've been writing the book, I've been coming across a lot of things that I think could be of use to language learners, and this blog is my forum to share them all with you, and ultimately will become the companion site for the book itself.


  1. Vincent,
    I enjoy your blog immensely. I've been following it off and on for about a year now. Your street-smart language learning tips have definately been useful to me. Any idea as to when the book will be released?

  2. I like your writing and sense of humor ( having come here via reading a lot of Benny's posts which I mostly enjoyed then the "input vs output" ridiculousness and a link you left to the sumo Steve battle which was hilarious).

    Any updates on your book? I'm intrigued.

  3. Still baking in the oven! Hard dates are difficult, however...
