About James

Welcome to the site!

This site is all about my greatest passions: travel and language learning, and how to make them both easy and accessible. I wanted to change the perception that learning a language is difficult.

So, I set up this site to share techniques and the best online language resources, making language learning easy and accessible for you.

Throughout the past 10 years, Iโ€™ve traveled to over 40 countries, becoming totally fluent in Spanish and French, and conversational in Portuguese, German and Italian. Since 2017, I’ve used this site to help thousands of people save money, learn languages online, visit more places, and have plenty of fun along the way.

My goal? For you to find the perfect language course or resource for your needs. Whether you are looking for an online program, a language tutor, or travel accessories, you’ll find it on this site.
