Abstract: Successful language learning, first and second, involves a lot of hard work. It is a myth that one learns her first language in the same manner that water removes itself from the backs of ducks. One simply doesn't beceome a good speaker, auder, reader, or –especially– writer of a language unless one puts a great deal of effort into it. This paper describes the linguistic odyssey of what I consider to be an optimally successful second language learner.
