If learning a language seems very difficult, here are 10 tips that should make your job easier.
We are many who do not have the gift of languages and learning another language can prove to be a real ordeal. Here are 10 tips from an online language learning site, Babbel, that will be of invaluable help.
Knowing what motivates you
Learning a language takes time and you must therefore find a motivation that will allow you to dedicate time and not give up. If you want to learn a language, the worst enemy is amateurism.
Consulting the media, listening to music …
Immersing oneself in culture is also important when learning a language. As the Babbel website states: “remember that the best thing that can happen when you try to speak a foreign language is that they will answer you in that language”. Because a conversation is already the most beautiful of rewards.
A companion to talk to
Learn with someone allows you to converse, but also introduces a certain spirit of competition that does not harm learning.
Learning is useful
Learning a language is a real added value when it can be used. It is of no use if it is only an ornament to your intellect. Although in order to practice some languages it will sometimes be necessary to manifest a lot of creativity.
Do not be afraid to use this new language in a fun way by singing, writing or talking about comic subjects.
Finding a childish soul By
not taking ourselves seriously and not being afraid of making mistakes, we advance much faster in learning a language. Accepting that you don’t know everything and that you can go wrong is one of the keys to success.
Coming out of comfort
Accepting to put yourself in situations that can be uncomfortable is taking risks. These will be rewarded a hundred more times. It is the effect of one of the fastest ways to make progress and acquire what we call intuition of the language, both knowing spontaneously what sounds good.
Listening as a keystone By
familiarizing yourself with the tones of a language, you will master it more easily.
Speaking a language correctly also depends on the mind and body (both the position of the tongue, lips and throat). By imitating the sounds and gestures performed by the native speaker you will master the pronunciation faster.
The Self Conversation
Don’t you have anyone to talk to? Nothing prevents you from monologuing in your corner. It is already very useful in itself.
