There are so many ways to learn a new language…
- Buy a one way ticket to a foreign country, and “live the language.”
- Find a live course, and sit in a classroom to learn (the more times a week, the better).
- Get yourself a tutor, and learn that bad boy in one-on-one sessions.
- Go online or buy a DVD/CD, and teach yourself at home.
All of these techniques work, right? Surely, they make a difference and you get acquainted with a new language, but the best way to become best friends with a new language is by using these techniques to quickly get yourself to a level where you can hold generic, basic conversations. Once you get to this level, USE YOUR NEW LANGUAGE! It’s extremely important to use the language as much as possible. This is the best way to learn new words and meanings.
It will never hurt to learn a new language. So, step out of your comfort zone and get motivated!
