That thing costs so much!
I don't have time for that!

Introduction: 4 Key Features
It’s great knowing how to learn and everything but if your key foundations are rocky, it’s not going to help too much. The introduction looks at four key areas of language learning and explores different ways you can make them work for you: accountability, documentation, connection, and progress.
Chapter 1: Creative Reading Ideas
The first chapter explores various ways to enhance your reading skills, as well as how to make reading as part of your language study more useful and fun. Perfect for bookworms!

Whether you love listening activities or struggle to stay focused, this chapter has some Creative Ideas for everyone. You’ll get ideas for what to listen to as well as what to do with it when you find something interesting.
Chapter 3: Creative Speaking Ideas
This is the one we all want to improve, right? Chapter 3 gives you many Creative Ideas to boost your speaking. And yes, there’s Creative Ideas to help with confidence and for speaking when you’re alone. Not the first sign of madness, I promise.
Chapter 4: Creative Writing Ideas
Often ignored, but never needs to be a bore! The Creative Ideas in this chapter will give you lots to start writing more. Here’s the first trick - you’ll always have something to write about. Woohoo!
Chapter 5: Creative Vocabulary Ideas
Yes, flashcards are great, but they’re not for everyone. This chapter focuses on plenty of Creative Ideas to learn, practise and expand your vocabulary. Hear that? That’s your vocab count tick tick ticking up and up.

Why hello there! I'm Lindsay and I do Languages, which is why I founded Lindsay Does Languages in 2012, a community dedicated to inspiring independent language learners + online teachers to succeed when doing it solo.
When I'm not learning languages myself (+ I've studied a few - 14 at last count!), I'm coaching independent language learners + online teachers just like you online.
And when I'm not doing that I'm playing with my tortoise Gonzo who speaks a grand total of zero languages.
Because I care about you + your language learning, when you get 100 Creative Ideas for Solo Language Learners, you also get
Some of the most anticipated questions you might have are answered below. Still got questions? Click the green box in the bottom right corner to ask me now!
>> I'm learning French/Japanese/Guarani, will this work for me?
Oui, はい, hêe! Absolutely! I've got experience learning many different languages myself, and have created this book to be suitable for learners of any language. Some activities may be more suited for some languages over others, but that's the minority.
>> Can I buy just the book and not the digital content?
Nope. That would be like breaking up Ant and Dec (or pencil and paper for a more widely understood comparison). The digital content supports the book and makes everything much easier for you. I wouldn't want you to get only half of the story by just getting the book!
>> I'm not sure...do you offer refunds if I change my mind?
I'm sure you're not a criminal but there's a small number of online equivalents of "diners and dashers" - people who will get a thing, download the thing, and ask for a refund. Downloaders and dashers, if you will. Due to the digital nature of this product, I don't offer refunds.
>> I'm a total newbie/average/super savvy solo learner. Is this for me?
It is indeed! The thing about getting creative with your language learning is it can happen at any level if you know how. You'll be able to adapt the majority of the ideas in the book for any level and any ability. Enjoy!
>> I teach languages. Will this help me?
Potentially. But I actually have another option that would be a better fit: 100 Creative Ideas for Online Language Teachers. There's a teeny tiny bit of crossover but they're very different options. Find out more here.
>> Do I need to buy anything else once I have access?
There are some suggestions in the book for other tools and resources, some of which cost money. However, nothing is 100% necessary! It's up to you if you buy other things. Many Creative Ideas in the book require nothing!
>> Do I get 1:1 time or community support?
Not with this option! 100 Creative Ideas is designed to not need 1:1 time or community support. If it's community support you're after, check out Language Life.
>> Will this teach me a language?
Nope. This is suitable for learners of any language but will not teach you the language. It's all about giving you Creative Ideas to teach yourself the language you're learning.
