Learning a language should really be fun, but so frequently it can be a grind, and after months of lessons you may be still having little capability converse in the language. It may leave you frustrated, angry, and with your confidence dented. All those hours within the classroom and for what? To learn how to say hello.
Well, it does not need to be this way!
Consider why it can be difficult to learn a language:
- You forget whatever you thought you had learned before
- The lessons are so far apart
- You are forced to understand at the same pace as everybody else in the class
- You don’t get to listen to native speakers
- You do not find the material based on your needs
Now let’s look at how you can make language learning quick and simple:
- Make a list of verbs and nouns from the appendix of a tutorial book
- Add those to flash cards with the translation on the back of the card
- On a daily basis, go though the cards for 25 minutes each time
- Whenever you think you’ve remembered a word, put that card to one side
- Rest 5 minutes between sessions
- Start using a culinary count-down timer to time the sessions and make a sense of urgency
With this technique, you are going to quickly learn many useful words to work with in conversation. Then a lot of the frustration of learning the language will likely be removed.
While you remember more of the words, your pile of flash cards will get smaller and smaller til you have remembered each of the words. But of course, you’ll have forgotten many of the earlier words, so shuffle the pack and start once more. Rinse and repeat until all of the words are easy to remember.
You can now figure out how to makes use of the words in sentences by studying a tutorial. Also, study online videos of native speakers so you learn correct pronunciation and common characteristics of the language.
By doing a little everyday in this manner should be fun and effective.
