IMPORTANT! As we have simultaneously upgraded several advanced high-technology computer mainframe structural systems and database managers on our dedicated German servers, we consider it safest to re-build all the websites entirely new from scratch, and not continue from the backups made on previous data systems. This will obviously takes us longer time to build, but it gets better, safer and faster for the user. The construction period for this website will be 17 weeks. And we are now in week four.
Welcome to see the website take shape !

We have now provided free access to study books and audio courses to learn [30] languages and the goal is probably around 60+ languages within three months. On this website, as a contrast to when it was a part of the POLITICAL AVENUE dot COM, we can also offer free Linguaphone and Pimsleur Audio courses for learning 30 languages. We will also try to bet on being the best resource website for linguistics, in the world.

"As it turns out, there is no language-learning gene, but there are tools and tricks for faster learning...
As a “polyglot”—someone who speaks multiple languages—my world has opened up. I have gained access to people and places that I never otherwise could have reached. I’ve made friends on a train in China through Mandarin, discussed politics with a desert dweller in Egyptian Arabic, discovered the wonders of deaf culture through American Sign Language, invited the (female) president of Ireland to dance in Irish (Gaeilge) and talked about it on live Irish radio, interviewed Peruvian fabric makers about how they work in Quechua, interpreted between Hungarian and Portuguese at a social event... and well, had an extremely interesting decade traveling the world. Such wonderful experiences are well within the reach of many of you!
I can now speak more than a dozen languages to varying degrees between conversational and mastery."
