Even though I studied Spanish for years in school, I still struggle to use what I learned in any meaningful way. Sound familiar? Then you’re in the right place. Idahosa Ness is a teacher, a musician, and foreign language expert who created The Mimic Method, a system to learn languages faster and more effectively. Although the program sounds quite revolutionary when you compare it to most foreign language resources out there, it’s based on the way we naturally learn language through our everyday environment.
Our family travels quite a bit, so learning a second language is a big priority for us. I’m excited to deep dive into this process and ask all of my nerdy homeschool mom questions!
