Bestselling author Scott Young presents his book "Ultralearning".
Scott is well known for his project called "The Year Without English", which involved a year of full immersion and learning 4 languages. Intense, right? He thought so too, and became fascinated with this concept
"There was a look on the plane, and that was our last time speaking English for a year."
Scott's recently been obsessed with intensive personal learning projects (which he calls "aggressive" but that does NOT mean you need to be some kind of macho muscle man). What matters is this: the 9 principles of successful self-directed learning.
- Metalearning (this is what you sort of heard about in episode 144 and Scott brings in new perspectives)
Thank you to Scott himself for this episode introduction.

Language note: when I said in my sponsor read that no-one who teaches themselves a language would "go around recommending italki", of course I meant they wouldn't "get around recommending italki". In other words, it's essential! I would absolutely GO around recommending italki. English is hard. 🤦🏼♀️
