January not only brought in a new year, it brought in three new books!
First, I updated Language is Music with about 30 new tips on language learning using music, TV, radio, movies and other media and I added information from scientific studies about the relationship of music and language, bilingualism and language learning.
In this video, you can hear a short Russian radio broadcast in Russian on 18 January 2014 about how the book teaches people how to listen when learning languages:
To make January not seem as cold as it is in the Northern Hemisphere, the Portuguese edition of Language is Music, Idioma é música, was published and brought some Brazilian sunshine to my life!
If you read Portuguese, you can read these articles in the Brazilian-American press about Idioma é música:
Adding to the new books, I also did some more media interviews about why and how to learn foreign languages, with a special focus on Spanish-speaking immigrants in the US. I had an interview on Tu Desayuno Alegre (aired 11 February 2014) and I was interviewed by the Panamerica World online magazine in Spanish (Susanna Zaraysky: 8 idiomas, 8 formas de interpretar el mundo) and in English (Susanna Zaraysky: 8 languages, 8 ways to interpret the world).
