12Sentences.com is inspired by Tim Ferriss' grammar 'deconstruction' method from โ€˜The 4 Hour Chef' - his book on accelerated learning.


Tim's method includes having a native speaker translate sentences like 'I give John the apple' - to help decode the building blocks of a language.

Some kind language speakers have added their translations and recordings to this project. To suggest which languages to add next - vote in the poll.
