The article, which is available on the Emotional Link LLC website, specifically targeting business professionals and students aspiring entrepreneurs who struggle with mastering a foreign language, sheds light on the underlying mechanisms of language learning and offers novel strategies for overcoming its hurdles.

Dr. Christiansen asserts that language fundamentally thrives on collaboration, emphasizing that  engaging in interactive communication, akin to the improvisational nature of language games like charades, is highly effective in language learning. Furthermore, Dr. Christiansen emphasizes the significance of learning word combinations as cohesive units, rather than fixating on individual words. Indeed, his research proves the efficacy of multi-word chunks in facilitating fluency and comprehension.

In this manner, he offers a pragmatic approach tailored to the time constraints of adult learners, advocating for a paradigm shift that empowers learners to communicate effectively without fear of error.
