Tips to learning a new language

For anyone who has been thinking about learning a new language but may be a little unsure of how to start or whether they could actually take it on or not, there are some tips to learning a new language. First and foremost, remember to have patience with yourself.

  • Have a reason for learning the language. Maybe a new friend of yours knows the language? Maybe someone that you like knows the language and you want to impress them? Maybe you want to travel to another country? Just have a reason and you will be more committed to learning the language.
  • Have someone learn with you. This can make it a lot more fun. You will have someone to help you practice conversations and memorize word lists.
  • Use the language while talking to yourself. This will give you the extra practice you need. It will also force you to memorize nouns and verbs.
  • Use the language in conversation with someone else who knows the language, again more practice. They can correct you when you are wrong or are searching for the right word or phrase.
  • Forget about having a comfort zone. Even if you have just known one language all of your life, enjoy the aspect of learning the new language, let yourself feel uncomfortable and take a risk.

Make sure that you have patience with yourself as you are learning the language and make sure that you believe in your ability to do it!
