This past week has been terrific! I had the opportunity to speak to three students about their success on the IELTS exam. In this conversation, Nakisa (who speak Farsi, English, German and some Arabic) shared her secrets to language acquisition.

(For more advanced training, try a book like American Accent Training.)
Without further ado, here’s my full exchange with Nakisa!
