You have your passports and will buy your tickets in the coming months.
You’re beginning to make plans to sell your stuff.
You are starting to wonder about starting over.
You are moving overseas.
There is a ton that goes into a move like this.
I know, I’ve done it.
I moved with my wife and two kids to Istanbul, Turkey back in 2008.
While there is much that has been written about the logistics of a move overseas, with this workbook, I want to focus on just one aspect of that move: language.
When I left the U.S. to spend 7 months in Thailand I did little, if anything, to prepare to learn the language. Had I seen Aaron’s book before leaving, I would have been no doubt more prepared for living abroad upon touching down in Bangkok. If I were doing it again, I’d implement his tactics, and build a much better base for communicating with the locals in whatever destination I choose.

The goal of the workbook is to prepare you to succeed. My hope for this workbook is that when you land in country, you will be empowered to take off as a language learner.
This workbook is about action. In it I’ll give you ten actions you can take to get started now at becomeing a maximized language learner.
This workbook is actionable. Each action includes steps to make it happen and a rationale for why you should make it happen.
I’ll also include two to three articles that you can read to help empower and educate you more.
A few of the actions include worksheets to help you discover for yourself what will make you a better language learner.
Easy to Use
I have worked to make this workbook as easy to use as I can. Each Action is just one page – less than 300 words each.
Each action includes a difficulty rating, an importance rating and will tell you when you should do it.
As a pdf file, you can read the workbook from your screen or at less than 30 pages, you can print it off.
Simple to read, easy to use.
These workbooks will also be inexpensive. You can have yours for less than the cost of a cup of coffee.

I’m a big fan of advance preparation when it’s possible. Aaron’s book breaks everything down into very simple steps that will get you started quickly. I wish I’d thought of these ideas before traveling to South America last year and trying to learn Spanish.

Language learning and moving abroad is a wide-open field with endless choices. So many choices that it’s overwhelming to know where to start or which way to go. This Stages workbook lays a trail into the experience that will allow you to begin the journey well and become confident in the direction you’re going. It’s a simple framework with powerful applications.

“If you’re learning a language in preparation for an overseas move, this is your lucky day. Aaron has created no-nonsense, practical guide to help you get you from zero to fluent. There’s nothing extraneous in here — he gives everything you need for self-directed learning, without the fluff. I wish this guide had been available before I moved to France, because Aaron does all the hard work for you (well, almost).”
