I am hitting the road.

My half-baked idea of popularizing LingQ has finally shaped up. To get started, I will make my first LingQ presentation at the place where I live. I just sent an email to the chief of the apartment office. In my email, I stated clearly that I was planning on giving a presentation followed by a workshop about language learning, which would be based on some views as follows.

as follows 如下

1. Why did we fail to learn a new language?
2. How do we learn a language in proper ways?
3. How often and how long do we need to listen and read while learning it?
4. Is grammar an essential part in terms of language learning?
5. Are there any free resources for people to learn languages?
6. Introduction to LingQ
7. LingQ workshop

I am asking the office to provide me with a public space for the meetup with the people with the interest in learning languages. Since I don't charge the attendees of the workshop, the office is advised not to charge me any fees on using the community facilities such as Internet connection, lights, tables, chairs, and so on and so forth. I must say all I am doing is for the greater good of the community.

If I should make the presentation at hand a successful one, then next what's on my list will be schools. I actually aim to train school students to learn LingQ. If the schools have insufficient budget to get me paid, I can train teachers, so they can pass what they will have learned from me on to their students. My charge is very reasonable and the time for the training will be short. It only takes about three hours to get trainees fully familiar with using the powerful language learning tool ever, LingQ.
