When learning a new language it is very important to surround yourself in supportive and informative communities. I am a firm believer that you learn not just from your teachers, but the peers who surround yourself with. For example, want to play the guitar start hanging around with other guitar players or in my case I dream to one day be a polyglot so I start learning from those that do it best. These sites are my personal fave blogger sites for 2017. It was a hard choice whittling down to just 10 as there are about 20 sites that I regularly follow. So in no particular order here they are…
I am vertically challenged and having to jump to get to the French books at my local bookshop I accidentally knocked this on to my head! I am not sure if it was the injury to my head all the book itself, but I can now get by in about 5 languages. I am still a regular in the forums and love how the book links to the site for a more interactive feature.
