LEARN NEW LANGUAGES

“Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things” 

Flora Lewis

 

You may be one of those people whose recurring New Year’s resolution is to learn the same language – which never happens – or you may be a polyglot who already speaks several languages and every year decides to learn a new one.

It doesn’t matter.

 

Learning a language could be a frustrating experience or one of the most satisfying and glorious ones.

 

What makes it one or the other?

The tools that you apply.

There are three main things to do in order to become fluent in a new language.

 

1.

Firstly, pronunciation. It’s a challenging task to teach our mouth to make sounds that in our mother tongue don’t exist, or at least to make them similar enough to be able to be understood. Challenging doesn’t mean impossible, if you know the best techniques.

 

2.

The second factor you need to take into consideration is vocabulary, which is to say memorising as many words as possible.

In order to understand 75% of a common written text you need to know around 1,000 words. In order to get to 80% you need 2,000. This is an indicator of the fact that the first big chunk which will make a difference in your fluency is 1,000 words.

If you are stuck with the old read-repeat method, memorising so many words will be a very tough (if not impossible) task, let alone to remember them in the long term. The majority of people will spend most of their study time to revise old words they have forgotten, with the result that they improve at a very slow pace, feeling frustrated every time they realise that the word they are looking at as if it was new is not new at all.

Applying memory techniques and techniques to remember anything forever will give a totally new approach that will get rid of this sense of frustration to give space to a consistent, constantly growing vocabulary that will impress even native speakers.

 

3.

Besides words, though, there is one more big challenge to overcome: grammar!

Every language has their own grammar structures, and even though our first tendency will be to replicate what we use in our mother tongue, this won’t work if we want to speak in a new language.

Most people get stuck in grammar rules. Every sentence will require you to apply more than one rule, and it’s not simple to choose on the spot which rules to use in the right moment and how to combine them in order to create a correct sentence.

 

By applying the Genius Language Learning method, you will have the best tools to do it, combined with an incredible clarity on the steps to take to finally get from zero to fluent.
