Welcome to our review page. Here, I'll be reviewing the different publications and platforms that are available for learning languages. There will be good and bad reviews, but I try and mostly focus on the good as I believe we can get something positive out of any resource with the right approach. 



Pimsleur is a very popular hands-free audio course that promises the world, but does it deliver? I think it does. Read on to find out why.  



LingQ was created by superstar polyglot, Steve Kaufman, but does it live up to all it promises it can be? Find out here with this review. 

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.
