My name is Idahosa Ness & I am a student, teacher, musician and maker.
As an adult, I’ve learned to speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Mandarin Chinese “By Ear.” Sometimes I speak these languages so well, people confuse me for a native.
The secret to my success is my focus on “Learning by Ear.” Children learn their first languages by ear, and they always succeed. But adults ignore their ear and focus instead on reading. That’s why adults rarely succeed.
As a lifelong musician, I know the best techniques for ear-training languages. Years ago, I had the idea to adapt these techniques to language learning. The result was a one of kind system I called “The Mimic Method.”
Since then, countless students from around the world have used The Mimic Method to learn languages faster, understand more, and speak with a better accent.
