Hola Amigos!

Below is a link to a guest post on Fluent in 3 Months, the writer of the post is a guy named Idahosa Ness (and no, his first name is NOT pronounced like the state of Idaho).  He is quite a character, but there is a lot of substance behind his antics.  Basically, he encourages language learners to focus on speaking and listening instead of reading and writing, exactly what we have focused on in our group meetings at Salt Lake City Spanish Meetup.

If you sign up for Idahosa's newsletter, he will enroll you for free in his basic course.  I am not prepared to pay for his expanded course just yet, but I am intrigued to learn more and plan to do the basic course (which I have already signed up for).

The other thing that intrigues me about his method is the inclusion of music ... I just have this strong feeling that I need to incorporate music somehow in my language learning, I think it stimulates the same part of the mind and could very well improve the language learning process.  Besides, good music always sounds and feels good, so why not add it to the process of learning a new language!

Is anyone else game?  If so, please let me know how it goes, and also if you happen to purchase the expanded course from Idahosa, I would love to know how well you liked it.
