Polyglot....You did a great job.
I followed your blog posts.
Even native speakers were commending you on your pronunciation.
So I would say you accomplished your goal.

You live the untethered life. Sounds like quite the adventure.

Well personally I thought all you did was regurgitate TEFL doctrine.. everything else was either obvious or just not true.. like this idea that Extrinsic motivation is somehow inherently more powerful than intrinsic.

Everyone is always looking for a quick fix and to hear they can learn without studying. . . I congratulate you on a personal level but I think the whole webblog and outrageous claims were arrogant and silly.

Still people need to hear TEFL/Direct/Communicative Method doctrine, and all the other methods, they need to know there are 100s of ways to learn things, not just traditional methods like drilling etc. etc. So any positivity and advice you shared with people is nice.

You can hear what my accent sounded like on a video I put up on my blog.

I watched your video and you sound like a native, to me! To be able to speak Czech like that would be a fantastic achievement after a few years, let alone a few weeks. You must be extremely gifted. Congratulations!
