This book provides 50 language “mini adventures” -- learning tasks that each help you find your way along your language learning path. Let language experts Shane Dixon and Justin Shewell be your guides as you take these mini adventures, based on years of academic research and experience, and incorporate them into your daily life. You'll find meaningful interactions in your target language, and you'll have fun, too.
Did you know that you can go on language adventures in your own backyard? It’s true! You’ll be introduced to the language learner ecosystem, a powerful paradigm that will help you find and evaluate resources all around you. This book will invite you to join a growing world of modern language learners who understand that a powerful shift has occurred in language learning. Whether you travel to far off lands, or never leave the comfort of your home, you can harness the power of immersion.
Dr. Dixon, with more than twenty years’ experience as a professional language trainer, will share his knowledge not only as a fellow language learner but as someone who has witnessed thousands of others go through the process of acquiring a language.
Through stories and examples (and a useful workbook section in the back), this guidebook will allow you to take control of your own language learning by connecting you to strategies and resources that only a modern, immersive approach can provide.
