Mind Your Language! 

                    A Practical Guide to Learning a Foreign Language

                               by Remo L. Nannetti


Mind Your Language! A Practical Guide to Learning a Foreign Language is a self-help guide for anyone learning any foreign modern language at any level whatsoever. It describes how to improve your level of performance in your modern foreign language studies by giving help, advice, suggestions and useful tips on every possible aspect of modern foreign language learning.


Absolutely everyone! Mind Your Language! can be used by language learners of all ages who find themselves in a classroom situation. You may be studying at school, college or university, or attending a night-class. You might be aiming to pass an examination or just learning a language for the fun of it. You may be a committed and able student who wants to progress even further, or an average student who wishes to build on strengths and eliminate weaknesses. Whatever your situation, Mind Your Language! will help you take charge of your own learning and offer you practical advice and suggestions on the best ways to learn, practise and revise the modern foreign language (or languages) that you are studying.

The style of writing is simple, friendly and accessible. Everything is expressed clearly, with no jargon or technical expressions. The book is structured in such a way that it can be ‘dipped into’ as well as being read from cover to cover. The opening chapter takes the student through an optional review of strengths and weaknesses in his or her language learning and is cross-referenced to the rest of the book, thus enabling instant access to those parts of the text directly relevant to individual needs.

If you’re the parent of a language learner, then Mind Your Language! makes the ideal gift. Modern languages teachers will also find it a valuable resource either for individual reference and/or whole-class use. Why not give it a try?


Mind Your Language! gives practical, no-nonsense advice suitable for every language student, regardless of ability. It describes every possible area of language learning in just the right amount of detail. The book is divided into four parts, each of which has four chapters:

PART ONE: Helping Yourself: Explore Your Strengths and Weaknesses, Manage Your Mind, Improve Your Learning Experience, Organise Your Work

PART TWO: Practice Makes Perfect: Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing

PART THREE: Going it Alone: Using Your Textbook, Using a Dictionary, Doing Homework, Sitting Examinations

PART FOUR: Living the Language: Using Computers, Sound and Vision, People Power, Getting Abroad
