We all know language bridges gap- between community, culture and countries. Knowing a different language other than your native tongue is simply a fun experience. And knowing beyond 2 would be amazing!
If you’re still not a bilingual but hoping to learn a new language, here are 7 tested tricks to learn any language. Check out-
- Get to Know Why– This might sound obvious, but if you don’t have a good reason to learn a language, you are less likely to stay motivated over the long-run. Wanting to impress English-speakers with your French is not a very good reason; wanting to get to know a French person in his or her own language is another matter entirely. No matter your reason, once you’ve decided on a language, it’s crucial to commit.
- Find a Partner–
this part has two steps involved, find a partner to your self who is equally interested in learning the same language as you do. This will help you to practice and moreover it’s always fun to learn something with your pal. Second, find some one who already knows the language. This will increase fluency in you. In case you couldn’t find the one who does know, still to your learning friend.
- Talk to Yourself– no there’s nothing to feel weird about it. When you have no one else to speak to, there’s nothing wrong with talking to yourself. This can keep new words and phrases fresh in your mind and build up your confidence for the next time you speak with someone.
- Keep it Relevant– If you make conversation a goal from the beginning, you are less likely to get lost in textbooks. Talking to people will keep the learning process relevant to you.
- Have Fun With What You Doing– no this doesn’t mean you can or should be making any fun about the language that you’re learning. What having fun here is meant with how creative you can get with the language you’re learning. Try out some poetry or song, do it yourself and see how perfectly you can actually utilize what you’ve learnt so far.
- Listen– You must learn to listen before you can speak. Every language sounds strange the first time you hear it, but the more you expose yourself to it the more familiar it becomes, and the easier it is to speak it properly. This will also help you to learn how to pronounce a particular word and correct yourself if you were doing it wrong.
- Watch People Talk– Different languages make different demands on your tongue, lips and throat. Pronunciation is just as much physical as it is mental. If you can’t watch and imitate a native-speaker in person, watching foreign-language films and TV is a good substitute.
So if you’re really interested and dedicated to learn a new language, you must have noted the tricks by now So why wait, get being a polyglot now!
