Tips for Language Learning



–      Make time on a regular basis for your language learning : at least 10 minutes a day.

–        Be realistic and don’t expect miracles. Language learning takes time – don’t expect to be fluent overnight and     don’t worry if you can’t remember everything.

–        Repeat activities to reinforce them.

–        Don’t worry about making mistakes. It’s a normal part of the learning process. You’ll learn much more quickly by trying to speak than by saying nothing.

–        Keep a check on your progress. Go back to something you did early to prove how much you’ve actually learnt.

–        Learn about the people and culture of the country where the language is spoken.

–        Enjoy your learning. Don’t let it become a chore.

–        Never compare yourself to others as everyone learns differently.

–        Try out your new language at every opportunity.

–        Learn a new word every day.

–        Don’t avoid grammar – it is the basis of the language, and knowledge of the rules will allow you to say what you want instead of repeating phrases like a parrot.

–        Use any learning method which works for you and don’t be afraid of trying out different approaches: write them on notes and stick them around the house, record them on cassettes, write lists, get friends to test you.

–        Make your learning an active part of your life: practise aloud.

–        Train yourself to listen.

–        Train your mind. When you come across a new word, try to guess what it means.

–        Never underestimate the value and pleasure of knowing another language. It can develop your communication skills in general and your creativity, making you more confident.
