Not a Child Anymore” on whether children really have it easier in learning languages, to the point that it’s too good an excuse, or whether there’s something else to learn from it.

What Multilingualism?,” considering how a polyglot is made, whether by accident of birth or by choosing – and by what sort of choosing.

Chinese Lessons on Language Learning” describing some of the observations about the local learning culture I’ve made during my time here in China.
