TIPS TO LEARN LANGUAGES

Fluency?[edit | edit source]

We all want to get to that pedestal that is fluency, but seldom do we stop and think, "fluency doesn't really exist, and if it does, it's all according to a person's linguistic needs."

time[edit | edit source]

Right now, we know that we need to learn this language, preferably in such a way where it will not cost us our sanity or life. That is when you have to begin implementing your target language into your everyday life, don't wait for time to become available, make time. Remember that you want to learn this language, not the other way around.

post-it[edit | edit source]

The first tip is to use post-it notes in a way where they can be of the utmost use, such as putting them on items in your household that you don’t know the name to in your target language. This is also a time where you want to create a basic outline of what exactly you want to study, in other words, a study plan. Do not put "study grammar" or something similar onto your plan, as you cannot be vague if you want this to work.

test[edit | edit source]

Another tip which is for any speaking level is to test yourself, especially when you feel as though you’ve reached a language plateau (the point where you are at a good place in your abilities, but you don’t know how to advance). Complete a practice test, or make one yourself.

why?[edit | edit source]

But always ask yourself why you want to learn this language. If you don't feel motivated, remind yourself why you want to learn this language, be it for a job, or a study abroad opportunity, or even for watching anime, so that you never lose sight of your main goal.

context[edit | edit source]

Something valuable that is emphasized enough is learning in context, as in when you're learning vocabulary, don't just memorize the word, read it in a sentence to get a feel for what context it is used in.

add colors[edit | edit source]

Some other tips that can come in handy include adding color to your words, for example, blue for definitions, green for grammar, etc., as well as listening to music in the target language, which YouTube, Spotify, Pandora, SoundCloud, and 8tracks can assist with.

Flashcards[edit | edit source]

Flashcards can also be of great use, because spaced-repetition systems are an easier way of memorizing other than rote and cramming. Anki, Memrise, and Quizlet are free online resources for this. Yet, one of the most, if not the best, important tip is to search for a native speaker.

set goals[edit | edit source]

And keep in mind throughout this that odds are you will not be fluent in six months, or even nine months, so set goals that you know you can easily achieve in a timely fashion.

read[edit | edit source]

Enjoy learning this language; watch movies in your target language, TV shows, music, books, basically whatever you can find that has your target language in it, but remember, read! You will never get anywhere in your language without reading, as this is part of fluency.
