In my experience of having been taught and having done a little bit of teaching, it’s been clear that there are a lot of variables to teaching a subject successfully, particularly one as complex as a language. This is partially why I created The Cartesian Spanish Pronunciation Lesson.
In all of the language classes I’ve taken (Spanish, German, French) I have never had any of my teachers, all of which were good or very good, cover the most basic question, Why a language sounds different than English?
Given the crucial importance that pronunciation has in being able to not only speak a new language correctly but also in being able to hear that language accurately and learn new words, it seems to me that being able to clearly understand the simple mechanics that form the foundation of language would be a huge advantage for any language student.
Imagine growing up accustomed to doing things with your right hand and then being taught a new thing that requires use of your left hand,…but no one tells you that basic fact! That’s what the vast majority of language classes do to their students—innocently. However, this makes an already challenging effort even more difficult.
I hope The Cartesian Spanish Pronunciation Lesson eBook can help you in your quest to master Spanish…or any other language.
