For many first-time language learners, the idea of learning a whole new language can be overwhelming. In today’s article, we’ll be looking at how you can start learning the useful basics of a language in just four easy steps.
If you goal is just to become fluent, then you’ll need to be learning for years before you hit any achievable milestones. Plus, with such a non-specific goal it can be difficult to see that you’re making any progress at all, which in turn can be very frustrating.
Instead of just setting out to learn a language in full, set yourself small obtainable goals that you might be able to achieve in the next few days. This could be as simple as learning a new phrase, ordering your coffee in a certain language, or just mastering the pronunciation of a difficult word.
Eventually, you’ll want the entire vocabulary of your chosen language at your command, but for the moment you’ll get a greater sense of accomplishment from being able to use your new language in simple day-to-day situations.
Simple questions and answers, types of food, directions, and other things you’ll have to use on multiple occasions daily are going to be more important than knowing how to answer complex physics questions.
You’ll probably start off learning single words, but it’s a great idea to combine them into phrases as fast as possible. Human communication is rarely monosyllabic, so you’ll get more use of out properly assembled phrases and using them more often means you are more likely to commit them to memory.
No one does anything as complex as learning a language perfectly the first time around. You’re going to make mistakes and that is ok, it’s part of the learning process. Instead of being embarrassed, think of them as an excellent chance to improve your language skills. If someone points out you’ve made mistakes, ask them to break down where you went wrong and how to correct yourself for next time.
