Editorial Reviews

Review

"Building Relationships That Bridge Cultures!"
"Beyond Words describes how the ShareLingo process provides practical practice opportunities for language learners, while building relationships that bridge cultures and create new connections in the community. You will discover the ShareLingo principles and see how they have been applied in business, government, and nonprofit settings. You will see that as individuals learn other languages and cultures, organizational goals are met: customers are happier, sale increase, workers become more efficient, and accidents are reduced.
If you are someone who is responsible for connecting your organization to people who do not speak English, this book and its ShareLingo solution will provide a surprisingly simple roadmap to follow."
Steve Krizman, Assistant Professor of Journalism and Public Relations Metropolitan State University of Denver and Former Senior Director, Kaiser Permanente


"Beyond Words is a major first step towards a truly global community."
"Being a part of a multicultural, bilingual family myself, the roads we traveled to get where we are were not difficult, they just required commitment. I am reminded daily of differences in culture from my wife, and the misunderstandings that can occur. Yet, when you see what can happen (as in the case of our children) who are bilingual and multi-culturally aware, you see what they future can be like.
Beyond Words and ShareLingo are sorely needed and a welcomed toolset for our world!"
Ray Brehm, Three-Time Bestselling Author (most recently The Author Startup), Entrepreneur, and advocate of the bilingual household


"We are all the same!"
"I am passionate about the subject of this book. While I was in Kenya, I learned a little Swahili to attempt to communicate. I cannot begin to tell you the how big the smiles were, and how kind, fascinating and interesting the encounters were just because of my effort. In the end, communicating connects us and brings those good feelings of basic humanness but also - for the business and corporate world - it results in better organizations, business and improved corporate culture.
Get this book and absorb what it says!"
Kathy Heshelow, Bestselling Author, World Traveler, and Entrepreneur


"A critically important book with insights on every page for every thoughtful citizen."
"They come every year, live in the housing for the workers, line up once a week at WalMart to send their pay to their families, and only ever speak Spanish. I doubt the orchard-owning family knows any Spanish. I doubt these workers know more than a dozen words of English. Yet we are the same. Though it took just moments to read, this book will permanently change my thinking."
Jacquelyn Elenor Johnson, MBA, Publisher of Crimson Hill Books and Business Book Ghostwriter


"Beyond Words will inspire you to seek true understanding and appreciation of other cultures."
"This book is magnificently crafted to open your eyes to the many, many ways in which knowing a second language is essential and empowering. Not only will it show you how a second language will directly improve your own life, but it will inspire you to seek true understanding and appreciation of other cultures and customs that you may be unfamiliar with, or even afraid of."
Derek Bearman, Former Missionary in Argentina


"There is but one human race."
"For me 'race' is a misnomer. There is but one human race genetically speaking.  We are not as different as a cow is to a chicken is to a whale.  Those are races.  What 'race' comes down to is a little difference in physical characteristics and culture. This book and the work of ShareLingo continues to bridge the cultural gap."
Danny Shain, Formerly of the USAID Project and Private Consultant in Peru


"I really applaud your ShareLingo project!"
In this century, as outside sources of funding such as government grants and major private donors become harder to attract - or simply are no longer available - it is necessary to self-fund critical programming internally to maintain service levels - that is, keep all our promises to all the people we want to help.
I really applaud your ShareLingo project - think it is a brilliant way for those with 'little' to give (certainly with limited money to donate) to contribute in important ways."
Wayne Johnson, Retired Business Owner and former YMCA Canada Executive

About the Author

James Archer began thinking about The ShareLingo Project in 2012 after a great deal of work to learn Spanish. In 2013, he founded ShareLingo and began work on developing the proprietary model and methods that the company uses. In addition to the United States, James has lived in Australia and Europe, and has traveled extensively throughout Asia and Latin America. While learning Spanish, James felt a strong desire to connect with native Spanish speakers for conversation practice, and to also learn about the many cultures that make up our community. Prior to developing ShareLingo, he had been a Computer Engineer, the General Manager of Australia’s largest conference and Exhibition Company, an art gallery owner, and an inventor, holding multiple patents in his name. James has served on multiple corporate and non-profit boards. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering from Iowa State University, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Rochester.
