    I prefer to learn isolate words in order to grasp their (like people who
    learn a closely related language). I don’t recommend it though. Then, I
    start reading a lot, so that I start to learn the real meaning of each

  2. Sergio Victor says:

    About motivation I’d say that I’ve tried all of these tips, but none worked
    for me. I don’t think it is THAT interesting to be able to talk to so many
    people because I can find an impressive variety of people here in my own
    country (in my own language).
    Talking as somebody who has made a lot of mistakes about language learning,
    I have to say that the great majority of passionate learners can’t teach
    about motivation.
    However, Now I’m studying Russian full time everyday using a simple
    principle. For each 10 minutes of study, I get a 5 minutes rest. By doing
    so, I can study every day for about 4-8 hours without felling pain.
    The problem is that people get discouraged by Effort. I don’t know whether
    this method was created by someone else. At least this is what my
    calculator has taught me.

    Hi Luca, great channel and site amico.. very helpful and inspiring. I was
    wondering if you could give me a bit of advice. I want to re-study/learn
    Italian. I used to speak it quite well but since I moved to Brazil and
    started speaking Portuguese for the last 6 months most of it seems hard to
    recall (i think it’s to do with the similarities between the 2 languages).
    I know it’s in there somewhere but I can’t find it. Have you ever been in a
    situation like this? How would you advise me to revisit a language?

    ciao Luca, buon Natale
    vorrei sapere la tua opinione riguardo il fatto di usare una lingua madre o
    meno per apprendere un idioma;
    mi spiego,
    circa un 2 anni fa ho iniziato a studiare il tagalog,
    pero’ come base avevo non l’italiano ,che fra l’altro parlo pochissimo,
    ma bensi’ l’inglese,avendo molte chatmate pinay ed essendo il materiale che
    ho trovato in internet tagalog/english ;
    ora sono sono dentro lo spagnolo per cui ho un amore sconfinato avendo
    trascorso meta’ anno in sud/centro america ,ma
    ho passato gli ultimi mesi in iran e quindi ho approffittato per iniziare
    ad apprendere il farsi;
    ma anche di questo idoma ho trovato solo testi english / farsi e le mie
    ragazze in iran parlano solo inglese;
    quindi la mia domanda e’ ,per te quando si apprende una lingua a parita’ di
    tempo ed impegno,e’ meglio avere un filo diretto con la propria lingua
    madre,oppure e’ lo stesso usare una lingua veicolare di cui magari non si
    ha una comoscenza totale?

    Sometimes 😉

  6. Emil says:

    Wow. THIS interview really helped! You are one of the best language
    learners out there! Keep it up, Luca 🙂

  7. rayjrm says:

    That’s great! I’m also using Luca’s method and it has had the same effect.
    I can see everything spelled out in my mind, and then I just read it out
    loud! 🙂

  8. Luca Lampariello says:

    June 2013 🙂

  9. Carlo Danika says:

    You are full-time immeresed in langauges , thanks for the suggestion !

  10. Makiaveliiste O says:

    Ok, merci pour ta réponse.

  11. César Peñaranda Arias says:

    Puedo estar horas de horas escuchándote, es súper interesante, y ta
    profundo lo que dices. He estado aprendiendo inglés hace 2 semanas, y
    estaba un poco desmotivado, por el hecho de nunca poder alcanzar el acento
    que quiero, pues mucha gente dice que es imposible. Pero usted me ha
    demostrado que si es posible, y que el hecho de ser adulto no es una
    desventaja, mas bien todo lo contrario podemos aprovechar la lectura y
    escritura. No me caben mas palabras en el comment, pero gracias de corazón.

  12. generalmcmuffin10 says:

    Great job Luca. Thanks for sharing your polyglot experience and motivation.

  13. Luca Lampariello says:

    Dank je wel Rosanne^^ L

  14. Luca Lampariello says:

    Je n’ai jamais utilisé de programmes de mémorisation. J’en ai pas besoin,
    parce que out est integré dans ma methode, qui est un vrai programme de
    mémorisation permanent 🙂 L

  15. Jason Eyermann says:

    I learnt french the hard way but i’ve learnt spanish using your back and
    forward method and I only see the subtitles in my mind with spanish so I
    think it’s down to your method. I’m using the same method for chinese
    (pinyin), I see the pinyin in my mind but they’re just never in the correct
    order yet so i need to keep going with that.

  16. Guillermo Perrino says:

    Looking forward to watching the last part….

  17. Tuvalu Vanuatu says:

    wise advices luca, you are always motivating me, thanks a lot. btw next
    year i will start learning italian

  18. mitja19 says:

    So in your case as an italian, you pick up assimil or teach yourself
    spanish for example, and you have all the translations in english. Do you
    remember the words in english or do you translate them in to your mother

  19. Levi Tooker says:

    Thank you! I thought I was the only one who saw subtitles in my mind. Glad
    to know I’m not alone. 🙂

  20. Luca Lampariello says:

    When I write down the lesson for the first time (L2>L1), I normally
    translate it into italian. L

  21. sing2speak says:

    Interesting how you break up the stages of vocab learning and then use
    different techniques for them.

  22. overthehill91 says:

    Wow Luca don’t you get tired of explaining the same concepts to everyone?

  23. Carlo Danika says:

    Hi luca ! I can believe you when you say you don’t learn much more than an
    hour a day when taking up a new langauge , but what about the time you need
    to keep all your langauges in a good shape ? could you you give us the
    average time you allot to langauges everyday ( could be even listening to
    the radio or watching tv ) . second question : Do you have some online
    bilingual resources for german and russian to advis e?

  24. TownerWalcott84 says:

    Cool stuff again! Luca, when is your book coming out?

  25. YangJettYung says:
