    I Became A Fluent Speaker Of Seven (7) Languages!

    Contrary to popular belief, learning a foreign language is not all that difficult! It all has to do with ATTITUDE rather than APTITUDE! I wanted to learn to speak multiple languages fluently, because I truly believe that TRUE personal freedom and power lie in one's ability to...

    My main languages growing up were English

    and French, because I had a American mother and spent all except 3 years in French speaking territory(Quebec and France). My father was a Moroccan Jew who also taught my siblings and myself how to speak Arabic though not to read or write it. This left him with no language to...
