Everyone is capable of learning a language... the secret is knowing how to learn.
Netflix travel host, serial language learner, and lifelong journaler, Jo Franco has combined a powerful framework and inspiring journal to make the path to fluency achievable, meaningful and, joyful.
The first half of this simple guide provides a practical blueprint to help you plan and organize your learning while developing skills and good habits for success. It includes all the tools you need: goal setting, habit tracking, a clever workspace area to jot down and summarize notes, sections for vocabulary lists, verb tables, and more.
The second half guides you through over 60 journal prompts in a range of thought-provoking topics that will build both your self-awareness and language awareness. You will be able to identify language gaps, practice what you've learned and start writing your story in anew language.
Through journaling, you will connect both emotionally and logically to your target language which will create context based on your unique outlook on the world. This 'emotional learning' style will use memory and feeling to help you engage authentically with your study material and grow your fluency one entry at a time. The Fluentish method creates a mind-body connection to take your learning off the page and into the real world.
Whether you're learning your first or your fifth language, in the classroom or on your own, The Fluentish Language Learning Planner and Journal is the ideal companion to keep you organized, interested, and progressing in a new language. As Jo says, journaling in a new language is like hiding the vitamins in the brownie: you learn a language while embarking on the ever-fascinating quest for self discovery.
