We spent the afternoon with two good friends before whom I laid out Unlearning in a nutshell. I’m getting better at doing that.

Allow languages to piggyback: Use should the language(s) that you know to support a new one. 

Combine listening with reading for maximum input. This combines different skills, stops you from thinking and analyzing, and ensures that you get a lot of light exposure.  

Use authentic material. Your interest and motivation will remain high, and the connected text will encourage fluency later on.

Maybe I didn’t express myself as succinctly as that then, but I’ve managed to now
