The Savvy Language Learner (infographic)

There are lots of savvy language learners with different interests, different personalities, and different opportunities, but there are two things they pretty much all have in common:

  1. Savvy language learners consume large amounts of well-chosen content.
  2. Savvy language learners engage in both scheduled and opportunistic habits.

Check out this infographic–or indwellfographic–for a handy overview of wise principles pertaining to content and action.

Oh, and avoid the number one mistake in language learning!

  1. Salve, Iuste!

    I’d love to make this into a poster. Any suggestions how I might do that? Would you allow that? I think you need one more statement at the bottom to include Latin. 🙂 I know…then you’d have to include all other languages. Where do you draw the line?

    Hope you are doing well!

  2. Salve, Luna!

    A poster of this would be so cool! As for how to do it, I would just check at FedEx vel sim–I’m sure they’ve dealt with tall files like infographics before. (This one is 800x2000px.)

    I realized that some of the content in the version I originally posted was from an older version, so I took the opportunity to add Latin while I was fixing that =)

    I’m busy getting ready for five (!) upcoming presentations, but enjoying the work.

    Happy mid-October!
