Tuesday's new topic is Language. Writing, Grammar, Publishing, Printing, and anything else related to English and it's usage.
I'm unilingual. English is the only language at which I'm proficient - and I've been known to lose even English at times. I certainly can't even pretend to be fluent in any other language. Unlike myself most English speakers in the world have learned English as a second language. The numbers show 330 million people in the world who speak English as their first language. 580 million have English as a secondary language.
So how does one learn English as a second language?
One answer comes from a blogger who calls himself The Korean. He charmingly uses the third person to refer to himself. On his blog Ask a Korean! he wrote a post called The Korean's English Acquisition, and the Best Method to Master a Foreign Language, Guaranteed.
The short version? It takes work. The long version? Don't ask me... go read The Korean. It's well worth it.
