Steve the Linguist’s blog is one of several that I subscribe to. Steve is Canadian and speaks nine languages. His command of Mandarin and Japanese is particularly impressive. A little while ago he decided to start interviewing language learners who had succeeded and failed to learn their target languages to get an idea from them what worked and what didn’t. The first interview he did was a lot of fun so I told Steve that, if he still needed people, I would be willing to be interviewed.
We did the interview yesterday and it was truly enjoyable. One of the reasons I started this blog was to have more contact with language enthusiasts (like yourselves) and Steve is one of the most enthusiastic of the bunch. You can listen to the interview here.
