Hey, how’s it going?
My name’s Olly Richards. I’m the founder of I Will Teach You A Language and I speak 8 languages.
If you’ve ever asked yourself:
- What’s the best way to become fluent in a foreign language?
- How come some people learn languages so easily but I can’t?
- How can I learn when I’m so busy?
- How can I work language learning around my family life?
- How can I learn to understand native speakers?
- Which books or courses are good?
Or if you just have a passion for learning a foreign language but don’t know how…
…you’ve found the right place! Sign up to my mailing list and I’ll send you all my best stuff by email, starting with my free memory improvement course, so you can more easily memorise vocabulary in the language you’re learning:

How I Will Help You
Did those questions above resonate with you?
That’s because I know what you’re struggling with, and what’s holding you back. After working with thousands of language learners, I’ve come to see first-hand what stops people becoming fluent in a foreign language, and what can be done to fix it.
Everything on this website is aimed at one thing: showing you how to study effectively and make the best use of your time.
One of the keys to learning a language quickly is developing the right mindset.
And as you start to dive into the articles on this website you will find that I talk about mindset a lot. The reason is that the difference between making no progress, and making progress so fast you won’t believe, often comes down to making a few small changes in your approach to language learning.
The difficulty is, unless you’ve learnt many languages before, how do you know what changes to make, and what to focus on?
That’s where I come in.
In order to learn a language quickly and efficiently, knowing what to focus on, how to study, and how to make the best use of your limited time is really what it’s all about.
I’ll show you the techniques I’ve used to learn eight languages, and how you can do it too. Enter your details below, and we can get started:
I started learning languages when I was 19 years old and working in a cafe in London.
I really wanted to learn French and Italian so I could start to chat with all the cool people I was working with. But I really had no idea how to do it 🙂
My desire to learn kept me going, and over the next few years, I started experimenting with more and more languages. I never spent all that much time studying languages (I’m a musician, so I preferred to be playing music 🙂 ), but I did figure out ways to start speaking a foreign language quickly, in a way that doesn’t require much studying in the traditional sense.
I spent time in France, Brazil and Argentina, and later on, in Japan, learning the languages as I went.
One of the curious side effects of travelling a lot was realising that you don’t need to travel to learn a foreign language. In fact, when I learn new languages these days, I do most of the hard work at home. I learnt Spanish, Portuguese and Cantonese, for example, without setting a foot in the respective countries.
With experience, it gets so much easier. And that’s why I’m so excited to have you here and to have the opportunity to put my experience to work and help you learn another language – without the stress!
If that sounds like a plan, then why not get started with my free memory course. I’ll teach you the techniques I use to quickly grow my vocabulary in any language…
