The newsletter subscribers know the news already. Now it’s time to tell everyone else. I just got myself a new big mission!
What’s it about?
It’s about learning a foreign language when you’re on a budget – and exploring what happens to the choices you make.
It’s about using your time, effort and resources wisely – to maximize the impact of your language learning.
It’s about motivation, imagination and creativity – features that often get dumbed down by standard language learning. They will have to carry me on – instead of my wallet!
Rules (in a nutshell)
I’m learning 3 languages to B1 level: German, Spanish and Welsh.
I haven’t got time limits for any of these. German could only take as much as a year (I’d learned German before). Welsh – maybe five times longer, who knows?
My budget for each of those languages is 100 pounds. No more, no less. If I need to spend more, I have to figure out how to do this (barter? negotiate the price? DIY?).
Tell me more!
I’ve prepared an initial report / presentation on the Guerrilla Language Learning Challenge. It’s available for free – and you’re welcome to share this with everyone you know. The PDF of the report will give you:
– A detailed breakdown of the rules of the challenge
– An explanation of the rules and philosophy behind the GLLC
– A “Starting Conditions” list, outlining my existing resources, influence and knowledge
If you want to download the report, it’s right here. Feel free to share it!
