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.
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. Read the complete review at Kobos.
After two years in a foreign country, it’s still challenging for me, as an Eastern citizen, to learn a Nordic language, even if as a student, learning the Slavic languages was a piece of cake due to the similarities with my mother tongue. The fact that I took classes and I used all kind of apps to improve my skills helped at the beginning, but became annoying in time.
Having access to Monica Di Santi’s book pleasantly surprised me. Thanks to her professional background, the author came up with a comprehensive and straight to the point guide based on tips and tricks which have a positive provoking logistic, revealing different aspects (both positive and negative), which helped me understand better my linguistic abilities and also the reasons for why I got stuck.
