I really just wanted to say thank you for giving everyone the tools to learn languages, and other things in a way that is perhaps more brain friendly than a lot of traditional education. Personally, it has helped me help students who are heritage learners of Spanish be able to have conversations with their elder family members that they were unable to because of both a generational gap, and a language barrier. I love your methodology, your openness and willingness to share, and both of these things live very deeply in my own soul so, I just wanted you to know that, at least to me, you make a world of difference.

I’ve got a feeling this is going to be very, very cool! I’ve used Language Transfer for Spanish and it’s a wonderful method for learning!

Hola!

If you would like; I could film a little snapshot. I’m currently in Argentina (soon Bolivia) and after trying many other methods I have Language Transfer to thank for in helping my Spanish - SO much, and I haven’t even completed the whole course yet!

You teach in such a different style to most and it’s been incredibly useful and inspiring that I’d love to contribute something, albeit small, as I only have my phone to film on.

Cheers,

Milly

i had learned spanish for a year using mild tools but somehow i found this one. I stopped looking at language as an alien but a different way to communicate with people as a shared history. After listening to your 90 episodes twice , with ease i was struck with how similiar the comprehension and words are similar to english. I would want to say thank you for changing my life and journey with language learning and i will never look at it the same again. This isn't a task thats informatory and you have to get out the way to say you achieved , language learning is a way of life and a never ending journey to communicate with people all over the world as we are one at the end of the day. A new language is now apart of my personality that i have learned.

I discovered LT accidentally in a Greek language learning group and was hooked right away. Initially, I was timid about letting my Greek instructor know I was supplementing her lessons with LT but when she wanted to know how I knew the verb αρχίχω when we hadn't learned it I explained and she was delighted I was immersing myself more in Greek learning and fully approved of your method...as do I. I'm an EFL teacher and have been adding to my own teaching repertoire through your LT method. In particular, I love how you get us to find and remember vocabulary through knowledge of its etymology. I have directed others towards LT for other language needs. Well done and thanks for being here! Pippa (Canada)

Huge lover of LT! I feel like I find myself recommending it to people a few times a month when I hear they are interesting in one of the currently available languages. The parts I have identified that are most impactful to me are the importance of learning how to build and construct using simple and straightforward grammar terminology (and not in the traditional sense), and of course I love the etymological notes (though some of them might be a tiny bit of a reach haha, but nonetheless they help to solidify the semantic connection). They say learning a language can change your perspective (which I totally agree with) but LT has completely changed the way I think about language learning in general, so ευχαριστώ πολύ, Μιχάλη.

I really loved the way you teach us and how you always want us to think instead of just memorizing. You’re so comforting

Okay so I know this is a really really late comment but I just wanted to ask if the Arabic course is finished or not because it says introduction, i'm kinda slow 😅😅 Does anybody know?? (I'm learning Arabic to communicate with my friend)
