Dear @estNATO @MoD_Estonia & @MFAestonia: The official #LanguageLearning site (keeleklikk) doesn't work on mobile; the fact we need a 6-page download to troubleshoot Flash is telling. @duolingo has no classes yet, so we're making do with a mix of EKI, Youtubers, and helpful
2/x colleagues to get by. @LV_NATO & @LithuaniaMFA we have the same issues with #Latvia & #Lithuania as with #Estonia, wanting to learn but finding few mobile resources and no Duolingo options.
You are important allies. Please help us with mobile #teaching so we can study and
3/x visit and socialize and study your history and enjoy trying your cultures like good guests - namely, language skills - so we're not helpless or tiresome to the people we'll meet around town or in uni.
Would you please fix this situation?

This is How to Learn Foreign Languages FASTER and RETAIN them LONG TERM.

A QUICK THREAD.

#LanguageLearning
I took 2 years of Spanish in high school and forgot 95% of it.
So I know how you feel.

This all changed with memory techniques...

With this SIMPLE linking trick, I've learned words / phrases from 9 different languages on my world travels.

I still remember them 4+ years later.
Step 1: Foreign Image
Create a mental IMAGE that sounds like the word or phrase you want to learn.

Spanish (English) examples:

Piscina (swimming pool)
= "piss in a"

Aquí (here)
= a key

Cuál (which)
= koala bear

Cuándo (when)
= taekwondo

Aprender (to learn)
=app render
