Effective Language Acquisition Is All About Strategy.


What is the quickest and most effective language acquisition strategy you may ask?


In life you always want to get the most out of something with the least amount of effort. This principle has been around as long as humans have been alive. We are naturally lazy and looking for the path of least resistance to achieve our wanted results.

As soon as you have chosen to start learning a foreign language it is normal that you want to see immediate results after the first few days. Motivation will drop drastically if no results are seen. You will then find yourself stepping off the path of success and ending up nowhere.

In order for this not to happen, we want to show you how to use the law of least effort in order to be as effective as possible when implementing our language learning strategies.


Using Vilfredo Pareto's 80/20 principle, we will help you to maximize your effectiveness in language acquisition.

Vilfredo Pareto was an Italian economist who lived from 1848 to 1923. The Pareto principle suggests that 80% of whatever you do comes from only 20% of the time spent. In other words, 80% of outputs result from only 20% of inputs. Successful companies such as IBM, Apple, and Microsoft have all made use of the pareto principle to be more cost efficient and at the same time be able to execute highly effective production strategies.

See the graph below demonstrating his principle.

So can Vilfredo's pareto principle be applied to effectively improve your language learning?

Sure it can. In addition to that, all of his principles can be implemented into your life and lead you to further success and happiness.


By using Vilfredo's pareto principle you will be able to:

  • Be extremely productive and effective in whatever you do.
  • Be able to select what is most important.
  • Always be able to find the shortcut to achieve your goal.
  • Concentrate on what you are good at and make it the best instead of only being satisfactory at everything.
