The Goldlist Method – Response to Appraisal and Critique by Group of Hardcore Polyglots and Linguists

Here is an article on the goldlist method which I wrote very recently on the How to Learn any Language forum in a thread which was very useful on the whole for the system – some of the top linguists and polyglots you can find on the net are there in that discussion, and they are putting this methiod to the test. Now some of them have already had the most tremendous success learning languages with their own preferred methods and are naturally suspicious of new-fangled approaches like this here Goldlist Method – some of them had criticisms to make, which are addressed below, but among them are plenty of hardcore linguists and polyglots who seem to really like the method. They are the hardest group to please, and you’ll see that despite the dissenting voices there are many who stand up for the method and more people do seem to approve of it than disapprove. And I don’t think I’ll ever have a tougher audience for this. Read the rest of this entry

Uncle Davey discourses to Lord Moggy on the practical use of the Gold List System

Uncle Davey discourses to Lord Moggy on the practical use of the Gold List System

This is the fifth and final of the videos on the Gold List system that I’m posting here today, hoping to answer the questions of nearly a hundred people who got in contact with me after my appearance on the morning show “Dzien Dobry TVN”. This time the video shows how to distil and gives some thematic help to an Australian who is learning Polish (this gentleman by the way had not been able to learn with other methods and only started making progress with the Gold List method). Polish viewers may well be interested in seeing how someone from the English-speaking world would use the method to learn their language, and of course it works precisely the same way in the other direction too.

If having seen all these films, anyone has questions, then please either click through to the youtube video and ask them there (which will guarantee the quickest answer) or ask me here, and I will be pleased to explain anything not made clear so far. As there are about a hundred people asking right now, it will be no offence to anyone, I hope, if I ask for people to make the questions and answers public rather than one on one tuition. If someone feels they cannot ask in front of others and must have one-on-one tuition then I will probably ask for some kind of charitable donation to be made for it to the Overcoming Shyness Fund.

Dla tych, ktorym to wszystko nie za bardzo pomaga, bo jeszcze nie znaja angielskiego a wlasnie dlatego w ogole szukali u mnie pomocy, to niestety na dzien dzisiejszy nie mam jeszcze takiego wideo w jezyku polskim. Bede go tworzyl jak najszybciej, wiec prosze pozostac “na linii”. Po dzisieszym odzewu wiem, ze musze szybko go zrobic.

Gold List Method for learning to L/T memory part one

Gold List Method for learning to L/T memory part one

I got up at a grievously early (for Sunday) hour in order to appear on Polish TV today, as a result of which there seem to be about a hundred people interested in finding out about this method. This is the first of several films, unfortunately all of them for now in English, but I will do a gold list film in Polish in the near future.

For those who are interested in the Gold List Method, please read the text on and follow the films I am going to upload to this blog today in the order they come.

I hope this helps you. You can also click through to the originals on and see the comments made by other viewers, and some ancillary explanations made by me there in the comments. Please rate and comment and subscribe, and maybe enjoy some others of my 850+ youtube films in addition to the Gold List ones collected here!
