Learning Foreign Languages

Were you born bilingual? Trained as a linguist? Or just taking your first steps in learning a
second language? This is a short talk with quick tips about learning languages. Topics include a
common mistake that language learners make (sounding like a foreigner), an overview of systems to
evaluate how well you know a language, and language learning resources. As many members of the
veteran community have learned languages through training or travel, discussion is welcome.
