I can already speak English and German (it is my major). Ukrainian and Russian are my native tongues. I am now learning Chinese and can use it in everyday life. I am also learning Spanish. So I have decided to get more information on how to learn languages .i.e. how skilled language learners and polyglots do this. I will post some good thoughts in the comments.

  3. Hacking Chinese Blog: http://www.hackingchinese.com/

    Hacking Chinese focuses on how to learn Chinese, something which is neglected by most teachers and courses that simply focus on what to learn. By putting the process in focus, I strive to unveil the mysteries of language learning and thereby help you improve the way you learn. I don’t think there is a golden path to instant success, so instead I do my very best to provide both inspiration and information about how to learn, enabling you to find your own way. I have learnt Chinese to an advanced level myself as an adult and I have the relevant education and experience to help you. Let Hacking Chinese be your guide to successful language learning!
