Fast learning any new language - Tips and tricks to follow

From the beginning of the New Year, you feel that it is the right time to dust off all language dictionaries and promise to learn a new language. You conjure up dreams of communicating fluently in some foreign language but as the days pass by, you forget chasing your dreams. But given the high value of foreign languages in the present job market, learning them has become a necessity to pep your resume. So, let’s have a look at some fun ways of learning a new language.

  1. Know the reason behind pursuing it

    Although this may seem obvious but in case you don’t have any good reason to learn a new language, you’re less likely to remain motivated in the long run. Showing interest in impressing English-speakers with your new found love in French or any other language is not a good reason enough to learn it but wanting to know a French person by knowing his language can be a different matter altogether. No matter what your reason is, once you have decided about learning it, you have to commit.

  2. Get yourself a partner

    There are many people who have learned several languages with a partner by their side and you can also try doing that. When you’re learning something new, you should have someone by you who can push you and give you the motivation to not surrender. Even though you don’t get your sibling to join you in this language venture, you can find yourself any kind of partner as you can even speak with that person and share your idea behind learning this language.

  3. Keep talking to yourself

    In case you don’t have anyone to speak to, it is best to talk to yourself. Though this might sound a bit weird but speaking to yourself in a language is definitely a great way to practice it since you might not be able to use it all the time. You can retain a few new words and phrases fresh in your mind and also build up confidence for the next time you speak to a stranger.

  4. Throw yourself deeply into it

    There are people who will tell you straight at your eye that the only way in which you can learn a new language is by moving into that country. But this isn’t true actually. You have to watch out for opportunities for lengthy and laborious conversations so that you can really watch your rate of progress. Make sure you define your new environment early so that you can soon learn the language of your choice. When you’re eager to learn Spanish, it is not that you have to always go to Spain in order to know about the language but you can definitely create the environment in the place you live.

  5. Speak with natives for an hour

    When you’re just starting with learning a language, you should arm yourself with questions. You may stumble through your first exchanges and then perceive yourself as nothing but a tedious conversation partner. If you see that your counterpart is slightly practiced in the art of conversation, your questions and doubts will be duly returned. You will start mimicking your counterparts, judge his way of speaking, register what he is trying to tell you and gradually construct a personality in the new language. This is indeed a bizarre process of building up personality before learning a new language.

  6. Have fun with the language

    Using your new language in any way is an act of creativity. Keep thinking of some ways of practicing your new language, make a radio play with a friend or draw a comic strip, simply talk with anyone possible or you can even write a poem.

So, if you have a dream of becoming a sworn translator in future or you simply love a particular language, you should follow the above mentioned steps to learn it with ease. Don’t try any kind of complexities and be casual about what you learn.
