The first step is admitting it: my name is George, and I’m a distraction-holic.
Back in January, I declared that I was going to spend 10 weeks learning Brazilian Portuguese. I wasn’t a total beginner; I’d already picked up a bit of Portuguese from my girlfriend (and an ex-girlfriend who is also Brazilian), but I’d never had a formal lesson or made any real active attempt to learn the language. (I did already speak French and Spanish though, which is a big headstart.)
Here’s a smart marketing trick I’ve noticed.
[Update: if you want to try the same course that I did, and learn Arabic (or Spanish or Portuguese) in seven hours of lessons, see here for how GeorgeMillo.com readers can get a special discount]
