I realize that I’m not being entirely honest with you. Indeed, I’ve a bit of a confession to make. It is this: learning languages is not my main priority in life. I’m only mildly interested in learning them.
I have a greater passion, I must admit.
To tell the truth, the thing that really excites me is the ‘how’ of learning languages. That’s what I love to spend my time on: the guts of how humans learn. Yes, it’s a related interest, but it isn’t the real McCoy.
I just wanted you to know that before we go any further.
