Learn a new language for free!

If you’re a regular reader or subscribe to this study tips blog, you know about antimimeticisomorphism which is how you can get the best grades with the least amount of effort.

That being said, antimimeticisomorphism is about doing out-of-the-ordinary things to get extra-ordinary results – like Duolingo.com – a web service that allows you to learn a new language for free in exchange for your lessons and exercises in translating the Internet’s content. It’s a win-win proposition.

Have a look at this short video and you’ll be amazed how you can learn a new language quickly – for free!

Get Better Grades To Learn Another Language Faster

Ruben, from the Netherlands, has some very interesting questions that might be of interest to you if you’re keen to Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort.

Dr Dussault,

I have some questions about your study method. I am a 16-year old Dutch student in High School and I currently have bad grades for Physics, Chemistry and Math (the highest level of it). My mentor said that changing the profile (which means changing those bad-grades subjects into easy subjects which I find interesting, like history, geography and an easier form of Math) would be a good option to consider. However, there is just one study I need to follow, or else, I won’t have enough subjects to pass that year. This subject would be French. The only problem is, I didn’t follow French lessons this year, because it wasn’t in my profile. My questions are: Does your product makes it easier for me to study history, geography and an easier form of Math, which I all have to study in, let’s say, 6 months, while they are courses designed to learn in one year, so it will be twice more difficult. And does your product also makes it easier to study a language like French in 6 months, while I didn’t even follow it for a year? In the 3rd class (the Dutch High School consists of 6 classes) I got an 8 for French (which would be a B in the USA?), but I didn’t learn the new grammar and words they thought in the 4th class.

So is this product a solution for achieving good grades for these subjects, while I haven’t study them for a year?

Ruben.

Ruben, First all let me say you’re on the right track investigating solutions to your study problems. My study system is designed to help you study any subject more effectively. Simply put, there are things you do when you study the subjects you like, enjoy and are ‘good at’. My system helps you discover what those are so that you become better at ALL your subjects. It’s a process that can happen very quickly, within days and weeks if you are disciplined and stick to the system.

Your question about languages is interesting – language education is different from ‘regular subjects’ because it requires an element of ‘performance’ when speaking as well as a sense of creativity when constructing sentences, paragraphs and longer communications.

My study system will help you study languages better, acquire MORE vocabulary and remember more grammatical rules. To capture a language more quickly, I would suggest two ideas: First, get Rapid Reader and speed read as much in the language you are trying to learn to get the words and sentence structure into your sub-conscious.

An example in French is below… At 600 words per minute, it may be too fast, but you can slow down the program to a speed that suits you. The reason this is a great learning tool is it FORCES you to absorb the words as fast as possible, faster than you can verbally say them so it becomes ‘second nature’ and automatic for you.

It’s not expensive and can dramatically improve BOTH your vocabulary and grammar.

Learn a foreign language faster with speed reading!

Several students who used my study system accelerated their studies by taking more intense courses or taking more courses to finish their degrees sooner as I have done. That being said, I do not endorse or suggest you do that without parental advice.

Taking intensive courses is a decision that needs to be made based on your academic, intellectual and disciplinary skills. Not everyone can ‘accelerate’ their study by taking on MORE courses. Only experienced students with outstanding study techniques can do that.

I would suggest that you first buy my study book, use the strategies to see how it helps you. If you are disciplined enough and apply them properly, then and only then, should you consult your parents and mentor to determine if you can fast-track your language studies.

The bottom line is that my study system works BECAUSE it is designed to work for you, based on how YOU study and learn best. Give it try, it’s backed up with an 8-week money-back guarantee that means there is no risk at all. If the strategies don’t work for you, just ask for a refund.

Don’t forget you also get the Speed Learning Video as a bonus when you buy the e-book!

Spellcheck your way to better grades

If you are a student studying in a foreign language, one of the best FREE tools to improve your grades is a spellchecker. Run it on everything you do – INCLUDING and ESPECIALLY e-mails so that EVERY TIME a mistake comes up, you will learn the correct spelling.

Some Spellcheckers also do grammar!

Yes, that’s right – Microsoft Word for example checks your grammar…! Check it out in the HELP MENU.

This is a ‘FREE’ Way of getting priceless feedback and one of the ways I teach people to Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort.

I should know, I studied in the only bilingual (French and English Ph.D. Business Administration Program) where questions, answers, discussions and submissions were made in BOTH languages SIMULATENOUSLY.

Sometimes a question was asked in French and answered in English!

Pretty fun stuff if you have the linguistic skills!

Today’s study tip is about IMPROVING those linguistic skills so you get BETTER GRADES. Spelling and grammar counts toward better grades!

By the way, my study book is available as a French Study Book, and Romanian Study Book. It will soon be available in Chinese and Polish!
