Today I want to share with you some tips and tricks for learning new languages that have helped me since I was little. So, if you want to know how I have learned foreign languages, scroll down and pay attention:
1.) Learn interactively
I hate reading foreign words with their meaning next to them on and on until I remember them. It’s very boring. So, instead, I read the foreign word, the meaning and then associate it with the things which surround me or at least I imagine those things.
2.) Watch movies, videos or shows, read books or articles, listen to music, set your devices in another language and when you navigate through websites try the ones in the language you want to learn
This is how I’ve earned the majority of my English knowledge and vocabulary.
3.) Make connections
Currently, I’m learning dutch and french. I’m almost always making connections between French and English or French and Romanian or French and Spanish and Dutch and German or Dutch and English and it really helps me learn these languages.
4.) Speak the language
or at least try to speak it. Even though it seems hard at first, by speaking the language you will master it better.
5.) Learn through pairs of antonyms and synonyms
because, if you don’t know the meaning of a word but you know the meaning of its antonym/synonym, you can deduce the meaning of it.
