Jenn, April 11, 2007 (view all comments by Jenn)
Having traveled overseas multiple times, I am aware of how Americans are often uni-lingual. Seeing people in Europe being able to switch what language they were speaking at a moment's notice was impressive to me. I saw people go from speaking French to German to English within a minute. It's not that Europeans are smarter, the geography of Europe often makes it needed for them to learn multiple languages. I was skeptical when I picked up Farber's book, but he explains tricks to help you learn. He shares facinating facts about his own multi-lingustic skills. For instance, he learned Chinese to prove he wasn't dumb after doing miserably in high school Latin! By using his memory devices, I remember not only words he used as examples, but their meaning. I'm not sure when I'll need to say "plate" in Indonesian, but it's proof that there is something behind his methods!
