Once you have subscribed to my free 10 week YouTube course you'll know what you need to learn but it's up to you to decide how you want to learn it. Personally, I would advocate that you use YouTube and other free online resources for the vast majority of your language learning. However, it is definitely worth paying for a few outstanding resources to help you to kick start your language learning journey. All the resources here have been tried or tested by either me or one of my guest bloggers so you can rest assured that they have proved to be extremely useful in the pursuit of either habit formation or language learning. I hope you enjoy them as much as we have!
Firstly, you're never going to learn a language properly unless you make language learning a daily habit. If you don't know how you can possibly dedicate 25 minutes a day to language learning you need to check out these resources to help with motivation and habit formation.
If you're learning Spanish, French, German or Italian and are looking for a great beginners guide look now further than Benny Lewis' 'Language Hacking' series. These books are totally immense.
If you want to sit back and practice your listening skills and reading skills by watching a dual translated film then I highly recommend getting hold of the modern Disney classic Moana. YouTube and my Pinterest page are full of dual translated songs from this awesome film so if you get to know it in one language it's incredibly helpful when learning a second or third language.
If you like learning through books another thing you genuinely need to consider is signing up for a 30 day free trial to Amazon's Kindle Unlimited. There are over a million books to choose from including loads of amazing books about language learning, books of all varieties written in all the major European languages and dual translations to help you read the language you are learning and compare it directly to English. Please be aware that if you don't cancel your membership it automatically rolls over at £7.99 a month but, to be honest, that is still fantastic value given the resources on offer! I've just signed up and can't believe the range of stuff there is on offer here. It's unreal!
The bottom line is that you don't have to spend thousands on expensive lessons to learn a language. If you make language learning a daily habit and use YouTube and a couple of the resources I've mentioned here you'll make great progress having spent very little! However, if you were only going to buy one thing though I would make it Amazon Kindle Unlimited because you're not really buying 'one' thing - you're buying access to a massive libraries worth of language related resources. Combine that with YouTube and you have more than enough resources to learn any language you want! Good luck you legends!
