Have you ever started learning a language, only to drop it a week or two later? My language missions don’t always go to plan. I’ve quit Czech, Japanese and Turkish to name just three public failures. But I’m a polyglot because I’ve learned how to bounce back when things are tough. That’s why I love this guest post from Elijah Lawson.
Have you quit language learning then regretted your decision? Find out how you can stop quitting for good and achieve your language goals.

The first step in any language challenge is the most important one. It's really hard to do this alone - it's why I highly recommend Brian Kwong's "Add 1 Challenge" support community.
A few people who have already signed up include Judith Meyer, Richard Simcott, and several other prominent polyglots in the community.
You have to apply to get in, and if you make it, you will get the best encouragement imaginable in your 90 day language challenge. Check it out!
Applications period closing in a few hours.

In English we have LOL, OMG, GR8 and more, but what about in other languages?

Txt Spk is common all over the world, and should be learned in your target language if you're using it in casual online or SMS chats!

In today's blog post you'll learn what Koi29 is in French, Qs3 is in Spanish, and of course, many different ways to LOL! Enjoy it, share it, and tell me your favourite txt spk in any language in the comments!
Have you ever wondered how they "lol" in China, France, Israel or Brazil? In this article, we'll show you how to text in Spanish, German, French, Chinese and many other languages.

You may have seen that I got engaged to my partner Lauren, so I've decided to reflect on the differences between travelling solo versus as a couple.
Check out today's detailed and personal article.
If you’re a member of the Language Hacking League, or if you follow me on Instagram, or Facebook, then you already know the big news: Lauren and I are engaged! This is yet another secret mission I’ve been working on behind the scenes for the past several months ;). In the two years we’ve been …
