I had to learn Greek as second language at a very young age, so the best for me was surrounding myself with everything from that culture, the foods, the music, etc... I also watched tv shows and movies that we're Greek to help show how people articulated and pronounced their words. Putting labels on everything in that language helped a lot too, like on everyday objects...hope this helps!:)
Try to listen to other people say the language. If no one you know can't speak the language you are trying to learn, watch some videos about it and while you study, take some notes, not too much, and use Bing translator to give you the words and try to say it. To get it right, you can use alokams16's idea too, following my idea! Your choice! :)
The best way to learn is to have a friend that is a native user of that language.
I learned American Sign Language (ASL) from my two Deaf friends. It took awhile, but slowly and surely they worked with me and I am now to the point that if they needed it I could have stepped in and interpreted for them if their official interpreter wasn't there.
Classes help aswell and practice is ESSENTIAL. It won't do any good to learn the language if you forget it afterwards.
Sing a song to help to you remember sing a song of the lannguage ( with a english subtittle or something) watch a show witch only speaks that language ( with the subtittle) ask a family or friend to learn it with you ( so it will be fun because of compersistion like playing games and such) ask a friend to help and ya GOOD LUCK ( pardon my spelling)
Learning a new langauge is very hard but very possible. Their is no easy way to learn a new langauge. It takes alot of paicents and time. But a good way is to study and study your brains out. or a more eaiser way is studying at least twice a day but it depends how fast you want to learn a new language. Hoped this helped
- have as many as vocabularies of that language...... - Practice it in your daily activities - if you could understand what the other said and the others understood what you said, it means that you mastered that language.
Vocabulary is a very bad advice.Let’s takes English.One word has many meanings and sometimes you can use the word and sometimes you can't.Vocabulary won't give you this information 1.Listen to the music (open lyrics and read along) 2.Talk to yourself.ALOUD (its crazy helpful).All people can have a few thoughts at the same time.So even if you're trying to focus on 1 particular thought u still have others in the background and they're distracting u.When u speak u can't really think about anything else but what you're saying.So when u talk to yourself you're focusing on talking in the language you're learning and it’s easier to understand what u know and what you're missing 4.Watch TV shows and movies (with subs) 5.Forget the books until after u know your language good enough to understand what is old and what is new,what can be used nowadays and what can't. 6.Always try to memorize whole phrases.Like it’s raining cats and dogs. Nothing extraordinary.And put the picture in your head. 7.When you're good enough to somewhat understand the language,try to listen to the songs and actually write the lyrics yourself as you hear them.play pause rewind.then compare the results
