RECOMMENDED WEBSITES

On productivity and time-management in general: David Allen's system of Getting Things Done has been very helpful to me personally. I recommend it to all my students, even if this takes some time so set it up and to follow through. 

Brian Tracy is my favorite author in personal development. Almost all of his insights and teachings are directly applicable to making your language learning process more productive. No New Age philosophy, just logical arguments and an eclectic presentation of scientific research. 

For improving your voice I highly recommend Arthur Joseph's system of Vocal Awareness. Arthur has been working for decades with famous actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Angelina Jolie. 

Posture and the use of our body is a critical factor in speaking. Most of us have unhealthy habits of sitting and moving which makes our voice sound unnecessarily strained. Check out the Alexander Technique, which is used by many actors, singers, musicians and professional athletes.
