Judgment Day: The Final Results for Case Study #1


The first Smart Language Learner case study has come to an end.

On one hand, it’s sad. I’ve had a lot of fun doing the case study.

On the other, it’s exciting because it means I can reveal my final results!

Hi, I’m Noel van Vliet

Noel van Vliet

I'm not one of those super polyglots. I only speak three languages — but I speak them well.

My goal is to supply you with the right information to help you learn a new language better and faster.

I do this by: sharing what's worked for me, doing Case Studies and asking those in the know.
