with a New Alphabet
by Luca Toma
Full Course: 13 Modules, 11 Action Steps and Bonus Material
Learning any new language can be challenging enough. But learning a language with an alphabet that is different than yours can be an additional barrier to starting a foreign language.
Don't let strange looking letters keep you from learning your dream language.
Luca Toma takes the fear out of starting a new writing system and language by breaking down the barrier for newer learners. This long-time Japanese language coach and calligraphy master will show you what it takes to comfortably read and write any new foreign script.
Don't let a language with another alphabet or script scare you off. We show you an easy approach to learn any script, no matter the language.
This course teaches you the foundational elements that will help you master any writing system of any language, no matter if it uses an alphabet, a syllabary, an abugida, and abjad, characters, or anything else.
Not sure which resources to learn from? We'll help you pinpoint the best materials for your target language, and show you how to set goals and start achieving them right away.
Luca shows you how to both type on a computer and write by hand, giving you the tools necessary to write your new language in any context or situation.
Forget using romanization—the script for learners that uses Latin letters instead of the proper symbols. This course will walk you through the steps of reading and writing in the actual native script, just like native speakers do!
This course requires you to actively take part in practicing the script of your foreign language. How? By asking you to regularly practice by text-chatting with native speakers all around the world! We'll show you how.
All parts of language are inter
connected. More than just a writing course, this course teaches you how to reinforce reading, speaking, and listening, all through the medium of good writing skills.
To be able to read and write properly, you must connect the symbols on the page to the sounds of the language. We'll show you how to bridge the gap between audio and text, and use good reading skills to reinforce accurate pronunciation.
No. While this course does explore learning a language primarily through writing, it shows you how good writing skills can benefit all of the other major language skills, including reading, listening, and even speaking.
Letter are sounds and those are written as symbols, which are then interpreted and mentally converted back into sound by the reader. All four skills work together in unison, reinforcing one another. This course shows you how to use writing to make that happen, from the beginning stages of learning a new language.
