When it comes to learning a second language, Daniele Saccardi, languages expert at Preply, gives the following tips:
Immerse yourself in the language
Become immersed in the language by listening to foreign films and music. As your language improves, start reading books in the language and use a dictionary to translate any words you don’t understand.
Make sure to study pronunciation
Many language learners can fixate on grammar and vocabulary. However, pronunciation is much more difficult to fix in the later stages of language learning. Make sure to practice pronunciation by impersonating other language speakers.
Practice speaking early
Many people fear speaking in another language due to embarrassment or saying something wrong. However, it’s easier to learn the language while you’re practicing it. Try and have daily conversations in the language, or use speaking apps to help yourself learn.
One classic New Year’s resolution is learning a new language. However, many of us don’t follow through with the goal. The key to language learning is to stay motivated and keep going, acknowledging that it will be challenging at times, but worth the effort in the long run.
Make it fun
Language learning can and should be fun. Immersing yourself in a new culture and new possibilities will only open doors to new opportunities. You’ll make new friends and gain new experiences all through learning.
