To be in line with today’s conditions, we are all curious to learn the language, but unfortunately the first time that excitement is lost and we have forgotten everything and we feel we cannot cope with it.
How do we prevent this?
I would suggest some advice, which I think would be of use to you:
- Set realistic goals for yourself and keep track of them, even with small steps. Less but more often, it is more useful to study several times a week than to work for 5 hours at a time. Give yourself homework!
- Try not to read it while listening to a text, it helps you to understand what you hear and concentrate on your accent, so you get a better understanding of the foreign language.
- After reading the text, concentrate on the words you know. Try to understand the meaning of other words. Then compare your estimates with the dictionary. Learn words in sentences and paragraphs; you don’t have to learn every foreign word you encounter. The easiest way to learn grammar is to work on our own schemas.
- While you learn a foreign language, watch television in that language (be careful not to have any subtitles), listen to radios in that language, surf the internet in that language. Evaluate all listening and reading opportunities on the language you have learned. Give yourself homework! Making friends who know the language you want to learn and speaking with them can be considered as the most effective way to improve your language.
- To improve your speech, try to communicate with people who speak the language of which language you are learning. You can share your comments about the issues on the agenda and talk about an issue. Send mail, chat, use all the facilities.
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes when you start talking. Leave concerns as “Do I look funny or not?” and try to actively engage in dialogue. Everyone who speaks a foreign language speaks in advance.
- If you study only by reading, this will only stimulate your visual intelligence, but if you include your auditory intelligence by repeating your work audibly, you will get more permanent results.
- When you have a lot of foreign words to learn, you can feel confused, don’t scare you! Try to insert the words you learned into your current life, for example, count the number of buildings to learn the numbers. Try to remember the names of all living non-living beings that you see around you in your home, in every place you are outside.
