About Aran Jones
I experiment with accelerated language acquisition, and I'm co-founder and CEO of a language training company.
I mostly work from home, which is on the northern slopes of the foothills of Eryri in the north of Wales, where I'm usually interrupted by any one of two kids, two dogs and a long-suffering wife.
I like ambitious projects, new languages, Welsh learners and pottering around on the guitar.
I was brought up in a lot of different countries - I was born in England (my mother always claims that was an accident, and that she was on her way home to Wales from Gibraltar and ran out of time) - then lived in Wales, England, Germany, Portugal, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. I came home to Wales to do a degree in English, and then worked in Zimbabwe and Dubai before getting tired enough of sand to come home for good in my early 30s.
Having failed to learn any other languages well enough to have a real conversation, I then successfully learnt Welsh, met and married Catrin Lliar, and eventually made our way to this garden (plus small attached house). We're now bringing up our two children through the medium of Welsh, and spending most of our time helping other people become successful Welsh learners.
I'm particularly interested in what is achievable in very short amounts of time if you're prepared to push yourself hard enough. We've taken people from almost zero to genuine interactions in just 5 days, and our next aim is to test what is possible in 10 or even 15 days of the same amount of effort...
