"You don't even need to immerse yourself to the target language"

"I went to China and learned Chinese from a guy on the train."
"Get help from a native speaker. Listen to everyone around you how they speak".

So immersion.

does anyone get it when you've been learning a language for a while, but you thought you weren't really improving, until one day you watch/read something in that language and it hits you like damnn I understood all of that??
I'm currently learning french, german, korean and yoruba and I made a youtube channel to record my progress.

I'm trying to learn Spanish during the quarantine

by hai tam 3 months ago

I decided to join the "I'll go try it out myself, see you in 6 months guys" train. I promise I will update you with the results.

And just in case you want a little bit of background: Spanish is my mother language. I learned English with the Comprehensible Input Approach 'technique', so I know it works. Personally, it took me about 6 years to get, without taking any English classes or private teachers, to a level that is almost native because I wasn't even trying to learn it consciously. I can understand any speaker and have no trouble expressing myself, I just lack some practice reading because I'm lazy.

My objective is:
Currently A2 French -> B1 French (specially focused on speaking)
Currently Italian beginner -> B1

It might not seem like much, but learning two languages at the same time, while still keeping up with practicing English in an environment where I only use Spanish in my every-day life outside the internet. I think I got a challenge myself.

He forgot one main thing. You should begin to THINK in the language you want to learn. In the process of thinking, which is essentially talking to yourself in your head, use the language you want to learn to express your thoughts. That is very important! When you want to do small talk with somebody in the language you want to learn, think beforehand what you will say, how and why. I found that very useful. I could quickly learn the phrases I needed to but being able to improvise (which small talk actually is) is much more challenging. If you think in your native language and try to simultaneously translate to the foreign language a story, you quickly run into big trouble. That is why you have to learn to think in the foreign language. Then you can become fluent. At least these are my 2 cents...
