About this blog

This is the Dreaming Languages blog. A place for me to express all my unpopular opinions about how we really learn foreign languages. The reason I started this blog is that I’m very dissatisfied with current foreign language education approaches, and I think that it can be done much better. In particular, what I want to achieve with my posts is the following:

  1. Force myself to organize my thoughts into clear understandable concepts, and think of ways how they could be applied in practice.
  2. Connect with other people who are passionate about learning languages, discuss our experience and hopefully learn something.
  3. Draw criticism on my ideas to be forced to double-check them and think about their weaknesses.
  4. Meet possible collaborators for future projects.

The ultimate goal of all these is to develop new, more effective methods of learning languages and help change our ideas of how to become fluent in a language.

In spite of what the intended reasons are, I have to admit that I have a tendency to preach and try to convince people, and I have to keep reminding myself that this is not the purpose of this blog. I realize that trying to change people’s minds with words is a lost battle, and I’m here to try and come up with actual methods that can help people learn languages better. People will have plenty of time to change their mind once we get those working.

If you want to learn more about who I am and why I started thinking the way I do, go check my profile.

  2. Thanks again for your interest Julie! Actually on Patreon you can sign up for the amount you want to contribute and then cancel it next month after one payment has been made. It’s really helpful since other people who come to our profile will be more inclined to contribute themselves if they see the pledged amount is bigger. If you really want to use PayPal you can send it to my account: sepharad@gmail.com
