7 Language Blogs You Should Be Following to Learn Languages Faster

If you’re just starting to learn a language, one of the first things we recommend you do is to refer to experts in the language learning space. Finding the right language blog can help you shorten your learning curve and avoid mistakes that you will inevitably make. It’s not that mistakes are unavoidable, but the less you can make, the faster you can learn.

As Tony Robbins often quotes, the fastest way to learn anything is to model the best.

Today, we’re going to share 7 language blogs that will help you learn any language faster.

1. Language Surfer

Fluentin3months.com is one of the most popular language blogs out there, started by Benny Lewis. As a polyglot who’s fluent in seven languages (and growing), Benny has mastered the art and science of learning a language.

He certainly did not start this way, as he shares honestly that when he finished college at the age of 21, he only knew one language: English.

We recommend checking out his most popular blog posts. The downside to the blog is that most of the content now comes from guest posts from others in the space, and not as much from Benny himself.

              Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

              Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

              Does technology have all the answers?

              This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

              Creating technological solutions transparently

              This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

              Technology as the connecting tool

              Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

              “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
