About Alina Kuimova
Hi, I'm Alina Kuimova
Over the last three years, I learned three languages, read a ton of books and research papers on second language acquisition and became a top student of Linguistics and Language Studies program in a Canadian university. All this – in order to answer a single question that haunts me for years.
This question is “what is the most efficient way to fluency?”
A foreign language is a skill, and, just like any skill, it requires practice to acquire and master. What changes the game is what and how you practice. And this is what this website is about. LINGUAPATH is a repository of techniques, methods, and tools that accelerate language learning and make it enjoyable.
In my work, I try to bring in concepts from such areas as skill acquisition, cognitive science, memory, psychology of performance, productivity and habit formation. Most of these ideas come from my readings, linguistic research, and self-experimentation. I explain recent scientific studies in a way that you can immediately put it into practice in order to improve your language learning strategy. And as I share these ideas, I like to present stories of polyglots, interpreters, and linguists, whose life revolves around learning different languages.
Ideas gain their value only once they are implemented. So instead of merely writing about language learning methods, I like to experiment with them. I enjoy field-testing new strategies and analyzing how these innovations can improve my life as a language learner, polyglot and linguistic student. My core interest lies in the intersection of language acquisition and self-improvement, and how one can help another.
My primary medium for sharing this information is my free biweekly newsletter. Once you join Linguapath community, you’ll get access to a fascinating cocktail of proven language learning tips, science-based cognitive tricks, and inspiration.
I still have a lot to learn and I can’t claim to have all the answers. But I would like to share what I know and help you to acquire a game changer skill – fluency in a foreign language
