About LATG

Languages Around the Globe is a community and site for language learners, linguists, and other professionals and enthusiasts . LATG began as a Facebook fan page in 2012. Since then the page has expanded to over 40,000 fans and has branched out to other forms of social media including Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

One of my primary goals is try to help those looking for language learning tools and assistance find resources and programs that are both effective and affordable. As a dedicated language learner myself I am extremely interested in testing language learning software and programs both big and small, and serving the interests of linguists. language learners and educators.

But programs aside, let us not forget that the cornerstone of language acquisition is real life application. I’d like to foster communication and cultural exchange between community members looking to connect with one another and learn together. So get engaged on social media! Converse in the comments, and get in touch!

And don’t forget to subscribe to my email updates! It’s super easy, only takes a second, and doesn’t include excess spam. In return you’ll also receive a free copy of Erik Zidowecki’s ebook “Finding Your Way to Languages”.
