What Opera Singers Study to Pronounce Languages Natively

I wrote an article for Benny at Fluentin3Months.com about the opera singer perspective and what it has to offer to the language learning community.

Dropping Barriers: What opera singers study, and how it can help you learn languages easier

A singer’s training focuses on dropping barriers between himself and his audience – language barriers, personal barriers, etc. – and parts of this training can be helpful for all language learners.

There’s another guest post in the works, and I’ll post a link here as soon as it’s up!

Other updates:
• Small addition to the Other Languages section – added a wonderful Portuguese frequency list for the first 350 words, with numerous example sentences.
• Added links to Forvo and Rhinospike as pronunciation resources.
• Added links to Linguee for English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.  It’s a really neat dictionary service that provides tons of example sentences and tells you about a given word’s frequency.  I wish it was available for Russian! (Anyone have any good Russian dictionaries, especially monolingual ones? When a word’s not well described in Wiktionary, I’m kind of out of options)
• Fixed the email subscription widget – anyone who subscribed prior to today isn’t on the email list; sorry! Please subscribe again – it’s working now.
