[Ep. #2] Is Assimil Good For Learning Languages?

In today’s episode, I go into some serious detail and give a very honest review of the Assimil Method and series for language learning.


  • Assimil’s main method seems to be based on anecdotal evidence and even its publishers struggled to explain it.
  • You cannot become a B2 speaker of any language solely through a translation book method.
  • Assimil may be better suited to closely related language pairs.
  • The organization of the MP3’s (super pack) is perfect.

Hey, it's Black Friday Time!

This is without doubt the most important time of the year to grab the best language products for dirt cheap.

You can literally save a fortune on language learning resources which makes this an unmissable time to stock up for next year.

Black Friday period only lasts a few days each year.

I've collaborated with other language course creators to round up some incredible Black Friday language offers from around the web for you this week (and some are exclusive to my readers).
