Ever since the days of Julius Caesar, people have wondered how long it takes to learn a language. (Don’t Google this, I made it up.)
The most sensible answer is:
It depends on so many things!
Like how close your target language is to your native language, or how many hours a day you will devote to the learning process.
So it depends is probably the most accurate answer, but that’s NOT the answer I’ll be giving you today.
Let’s face it.
Most people start their day like shit.
I used to be one of them.
I’d stumble out of bed like a zombie…grab my phone…eat something…and then shower.
By then, I would *still* feel, and look, like some pale walking dead creature.

Some people think all languages should be learned through real world materials.
Unfortunately, it’s not so simple to do.
Things can get messy…
Luckily, there’s a website that can help you.
Yabla is a language immersion tool that helps you learn a new language through videos.
It’s a fun way for intermediate and advanced learners to improve their skills in their target language. It’s especially good for boosting your listening skills.
You don’t just watch the videos, but you also learn from them by playing games that feature the videos’ content.
