About CI Polyglot

Welcome to CI Polyglot!

You may waste thousands on ineffective language tuition, or you may not even have access to a teacher. If you do teach yourself, there is a high chance that there are better ways to do things (as I'm finding out all the time). I'm an English teacher and speak/read 7 languages, but I never spend any money on tuition. I don't need to as I use highly effective methodology to drive progress in all the four main language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. This is what this site is ALL about;- learning how to learn ANY language, from Classical Chinese to the less exotic languages of French and Spanish. Are you worried you don't have a speaking partner? Guess what, you don't actually need one. Who's going to mark your writing? Again, I'll show you how to improve this on your own. What resources should I get? It's all here. If it's not, it will be.

With languages, like anything else, there are right ways to do things and wrong ways. Now it's time to get the most out of your time, to milk every last minute and second to achieve the results you should be getting.

About Me

My name is Neil and I have been teaching English professionally for almost 20 years, the last ten of which at my language school. 

Apart from a diploma in teaching English as a foreign language (Cert Tesol), I have a BA in modern and Classical Chinese. I also speak Spanish, Italian, and French, and read Latin. 

Besides continuing my daily studies of these languages, I have also set myself a language goal of one new language a year. I’m looking forward to starting Japanese or German on the 1st January 2021.
