I am interested in ways and methods to quickly acquire enough of a new language to effectively communicate the most things with the most speed.

People can lose interest in you when you take too long to expain what you are trying to say.

I was in Brazil recently when the idea struck me that verbs are what make things happen.

It's simple. Verbs do make things happen.

To this end, I am going to work on learning Russian through first acquiring proficiency with the core verbs.

I will track this project on my blog in depth at Freestyle Language.
