The ultimate rapid language-learning guide! For those who鈥檝e despaired of ever learning a foreign language, here, finally, is a book that will make the words stick.<b> </b>At thirty years old, Gabriel Wyner speaks <i>six </i>languages fluently.聽 He didn鈥檛 learn them in school -- who does? -- rather, he learned them in the past few years, working on his own and practicing on the subway, using simple techniques and free online resources. In <i>Fluent Forever</i> Wyner reveals what he鈥檚 discovered.聽 <br /><b>聽</b><br />The greatest challenge to learning a foreign language is the challenge of memory; there are just too many words and too many rules. For every new word we learn, we seem to forget two old ones, and as a result, fluency can seem out of reach.聽<i>Fluent Forever</i>聽tackles this challenge head-on. With empathy for the language-challenged and abundant humor, Wyner deconstructs the learning process, revealing how to build a foreign language in your mind from the ground up.聽<br />聽<br />Starting with pronunciation, you鈥檒l learn how to rewire your ears and turn foreign sounds into聽<i>familiar</i>聽sounds. You'll retrain your tongue to produce those sounds accurately, using聽tricks from opera singers and actors.聽Next, you'll聽begin to tackle words, and connect sounds and spellings to imagery, rather than translations, which will enable you to聽<i>think</i>聽in a foreign language<i>.聽 </i>And with the help of sophisticated spaced-repetition techniques, you'll be able to memorize hundreds of words a month in聽<i>minutes</i>聽every day. Soon, you'll gain the ability to learn grammar and more difficult abstract words--<i>without </i>the tedious drills and exercises of language classes and grammar books. <br />聽<br />This is brain hacking at its most exciting, taking what we know about neuroscience and linguistics and using it to create the most efficient and enjoyable way to learn聽a foreign language in the spare minutes of your day.

This is the first-ever English-language edition of the book Leo Tolstoy considered to be his most important contribution to humanity, the work of his life's last years. Widely read in prerevolutionary Russia, banned and forgotten under Communism; and recently rediscovered to great excitement, <i>A Calendar of Wisdom</i> is a day-by-day guide that illuminates the path of a life worth living with a brightness undimmed by time. Unjustly censored for nearly a century, it deserves to be placed with the few books in our history that will never cease teaching us the essence of what is important in this world.

<p>The framework for teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction that are grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching. The framework may be used for many purposes, but its full value is realized as the foundation for professional conversations among practitioners as they seek to enhance their skill in the complex task of teaching. The framework may be used as the foundation of a school鈥檚 or district鈥檚 recruitment and hiring, mentoring, coaching, professional development, and teacher evaluation processes, thus linking all those activities together and helping teachers become more thoughtful practitioners.</p><p>The actions teachers can take to improve student learning are clearly identified and fall under four domains of teaching responsibility: Planning and Preparation, the School Environment, Instruction, and Professional Responsibilities. Within the domains are 22 components and 76 descriptive elements that further refine our understanding of what teaching is all about. The framework defines four levels of performance--Unsatisfactory, Basic, Proficient, and Distinguished--for each element, providing a valuable tool that all teachers can use.</p><p>This second edition has been revised and updated and also includes frameworks for school specialists, such as school nurses, counselors, library and media specialists, and instructional coaches. Comprehensive, clear, and applicable to teaching across the K鈥?2 spectrum, the framework for teaching described in this book is based on the PRAXIS III: Classroom Performance Assessment criteria developed by Educational Testing Service and is compatible with INTASC standards. </p>
