Makes sense to me. The blog refers to Zenhabits -Simple Guide to speaking foreign languages. This site is full of tips and makes your mouth watery for language learning. Here is only a small selection of the tips mentioned:
Rather than downloading podcasts and buying too many courses, meet up with actual people and use the language! A few resources I like to use include:
- Meetup.com for language meet-ups in major cities. You can also read advertisements in newspapers and your local library to see if people meet up interested in speaking the language you want to.
- Join Couchsurfing and host foreign travelers in your home. The same site also has international meetings and a feature to search your city for people who speak a particular language.
- You can also find native speakers online and practice over Skype, through many language learning social networks available for free online.
