In the news: A review of my ebook, an interview, the hardest languages and!

4 Sep 2012

Usually, I post articles with language learning advice or information about American or Polish culture. Today is going to be a little different.

Over the last two weeks, LinguaTrek (my blog) and Bibliobird (my web application for language learning) have been mentioned a number of times on the internet.

Here is a quick overview!

A review of my FREE ebook!

J. Snider of the excellent blog recently wrote a review of Natural Language Learning without a Teacher in which he writes:

This e-book is of the same calibre as can be found in other e-products (like The Language Hacking Guide and Everyday Language Learner), but at a much more favourable price. Excellent content for free!

If you have a moment, I highly recommend taking a look at J.'s blog! There is a plethora of interesting articles about language learning but not only!

An interview with

The crowdfunding campaign we did on (like in Poland) in order to presell our first paid product for Bibliobird was "one of the most spectacular successes in Polish crowdfunding!"

Yesterday, I did an interview on the blog (in Polish) where I discuss the details of the compaign and what I believe allowed us to be so successful. The Google Translate version is pretty hilarious but it conveys the general idea. :-)

Read more for the two remaining peices of news! the hardest languages..., a portal about learning, education and business, wrote an article (in Polish) about the hardest languages in the world, taking advantage of my video about how Polish is NOT the hardest language. :-)

They wrote (translated from Polish):

Many Poles commonly consider Polish to be among the hardest languages.... The video above proves that Polish isn't all that hard., a portal to help learners find the best language learning blogs, was recently launched! LinguaTrek was one of the first blogs to become involved in the project.

According to the creator, Niel de la Rouviere, there are lots of cool new features comming soon! If you're interested in more information, subscribe to the newletter.

Thanks for reading! We'll get back to talking about language learning or culture next week. :-)

Thanks for mentioning Polyglot Link. It's only started, but it's aiming for high places. Only 40 blogs for now, but there's lot more to be added, including more features.

Yup, you have to wait a few months for you project(s) to be noticed, reviewed, spoken about, etc. It’s a common pattern. I’ve observed it several times with my projects. You have to have a lot of patience! But then, if a project is well designed/developed it spreads among community like a virus. :)

BTW David, have you received my e-mail with a remainder about you-know-what? :D

Ah… was the interview with Polak Potrafi guys in the form of IM? If so, I can only congratulate you on your clear thinking and formulating thoughts!

Hi Wojtek!

Yes, I got your e-mail. :-)

It was in the form of e-mail, so it's not so impressive. ;-) I'm sure you've heard the two Skype interviews I did on Real Polish - I certainly think a lot less clearly on the spot!

Best regards,

I'm intrigued by polyglotlink as well, it's taken off surprisingly well (no doubt due to quite a bit of behind the scenes work by its creator), I'm curious to see where it goes.

Congratulations on the review, I will get around to reading your book and reviewing it on my site eventually, it's just an issue of time.
