(doctor Lozanov)

Some years ago I read some of Lozanov’s writings on Suggestopedy (use of the right-hemisphere [brain’s] potentialities and the unconscious in facilitating the learning of foreign languages). Now I’ve seen a tape Chris Lonsdale recorded in China, for students attending. It’s surely another important contribution to the field of Psychology of Learning.

His own experience seems enough-validating; his mode of thinking about some pertinent questions (how to learn any language i

When I looked into buying a book about the process of learning a second language, this book seemed to tick all the boxes - particularly, as I was learning Mandarin and the author was a native English speaker, who had mastered Mandarin.
Overall, this book is good and even though there are a few 'flaws' with it, I gave it a four star rating because it motivated me to start using my Mandarin. The author does go off on tangents, talking about his daughter etc. These stories are a little disruptive t

He makes some valid points, but most of it is just common sense. On the whole, I was disappointed by the book's shallowness. Further, it would have been nice to see some research backing up his assertions, as opposed to a series of anecdotes (mostly from his own experience). I've resisted reading this book for a long time because I had my doubts about it, but since it was just sitting there on Jenn's shelf and it's not very long, I figured why not?

I'm not impressed and somewhat disappointed with this book. I had read several good reviews about it in, and it does not live up to all the hype created there. Most claims are based on anecdotes (which are sometimes quite boring) and hardly any on scientific research.
Since I have read several books on the subject, I did not get very much out of it. However, I would still recommend it to anyone looking to pick up another language and wants some simple pointers.

Shelves: partially-read
I partially read this book. It's only useful if you haven't lived abroad and haven't dabbled in language-learning many times before. Otherwise, I think the author generally has good tips on the language learning process & changing your mentality on learning a language as an adult. He seems to go off track quite a bit though which I felt distracted from the content.

Very helpful

Currently, I live in Tijuana and am working on Spanish. The author presented a lot of good points that are applicable to any endeavor to learn a second or third language. I recommend this book to the serious student of languages.
