"I want to learn language X ..." Sep 7, 2005

Reading the postings on the site brings to mind a quote from Greg Thomson.

"... all those people who say, "I want to learn language X; where can I find a textbook?" What would be a better first question for them to ask? Try "I want to learn language X; where can I find some speakers of language X?" How rarely people ask that. How odd."

"A Few Simple Ideas for New Language Learners...and old ones needing some new life"

Some other recommended articles by Greg Thomson of interest to language learners.
