Having launched in language learning by it * and also, having had some exchanges with other successful students, I have observed that a number of characteristics shared by these different people still each other!
I have grouped in 10 principles and attitudes necessary for success in general language and you, if not essential, very useful to progress rapidly and effectively in the language of your dreams!
The first thing to consider when undertaking wing such an exciting adventure that learning a new language is to have the right mood! Because, in fact, their thoughts influence their actions, so … If you are lazy, unmotivated, lack of energy, it will be very difficult to achieve significant progress in their learning!
And I hear you tell me “that’s fine, but how I developed this spirit of conqueror? I’m not in the base, can not become someone else” … And it’s good because it’s not what I want. What I want you to be a better version of yourself, become aware of their potential and especially you have great confidence in you !!
To do this, I recommend some methods that have already proven effective:
Put these tips and will choose the best way to succeed in learning languages!
That, to me, another essential component that will help you succeed in tongues!
For me, it is the ideal time of day to do so much! And it is also a very good for language learning thing, because by tomorrow you’re not stressed, exhausted and distracted by the various events of the day that could occur and disrupt their learning.
This also lets you far fewer opportunities to procrastinate and so do the many things as possible before they started the day! Not great?
What is the main difference between a successful student and one who will not succeed in the sustainable progress? You’ve guessed it: the desire to learn!
In fact, this also applies to any domain, those who succeed in the languages will always be the most curious, passionate and especially those nerds especially … continue their efforts !!
What I mean is that there should be days of grueling training five hours away, no! What I want is to boast of control (master) TRULY a language, you need to practice every day new things (checking, of course, you knew that). Why not worth spending 5 hours. An hour is enough!
And do not tell me you do not have time! We still have time, it’s just a matter of discipline and define its priorities.
Which brings us to our next point …
As I said in the previous point, in many cases, people who do not have time because there’s just define priorities and allowed to eat a lot of useless distractions that could very well happen!
I tell you what you think abstract?
Very good …
I’ll give you a list of things you have to do to have more time!
The time you can invest in your success in the languages:
This may seem paradoxical as advice but it is a reality because, being too focused and obsessed with a field that disturbs and stresses making slower than someone who has other activities and interests in other fields learning.
Ideally, learning a language should be part of your lifestyle and not become the central element of it. Moreover, the practice of certain activities may increase efficiency in language learning:
The word “chunks” comes from English and means “large pieces”! Learning by “pieces” means learning to pieces. What are the “chunks” of a language? It’s simple, chunks of a language are all phrases and fixed expressions that naturally come in very specific situations.
Examples: “have a nice day”, “Good luck,” “I beg you”, etc.
According to linguistic research, learning by “chunks” would be more effective than learning a long list of words separated by the time you learn phrases are also taught the correct conjugation and especially their context. That will help to improve their natural and fluency in a given language.
Do you think it is a convenient way?
Well I give a concrete example so you can understand it better.
Take, for example, the first case we saw above, “Have a nice day” is a phrase you hear a ton of times when interacting with people. It happens to you unnoticed.
However, what if someone said “Have a nice day” or “get a good I gave”?
This seems unusual, right?
Although a purely grammatical level of the sentence is all that is right, in a real context, it becomes inappropriate and uncomfortable. And this because it is different from the fixed sentence that uses all the natives of a country.
Understand, in this case, the importance of idioms and expressions in language learning and the benefit of learning “chunks” in this context.
In addition to the above proposals, think what is the best way to increase your basic vocabulary, his mastery of grammar and a large number of fixed and contextual sentences? You’ll never guess!
The reading !!
Indeed, reading is one of the fastest way I know to grow exponentially in the languages and how quickly.
And I am living proof: after starting to read books in English with a reasonable level of English (well if I mastered the basics) I succeeded, thanks to a daily read 5 pages per day to acquire a level which, at the end of the year I managed to read fluently, without having to pause to understand what he was reading.
I honestly never would have reached this level of control if it had not used too painful method of learning. Sometimes, to progress and pass a level you have to know question and go beyond their apprehension.
After that, I’m not saying that this method is magical and will be effective everywhere.
Here comes my 8th proposal is …
Because no method and advice is self-sufficient, the best recommendation I can give is to diversify its sources of learning and experiences. Do not stay in a single method for progress, beyond.
At some point, both in language and in any other learning, you have to go through “levels”.
And this can be frustrating for many students because, having experienced rapid and steady growth, progress stops suddenly. And the main reason is because they have only relied on one or two techniques that thought infallible. However, the method that made him progress as a beginner can be completely overwhelmed when they crossed the intermediate course.
It’s like, read books can be really effective in improving your vocabulary and level of expression but it is quite useless in regard to pronunciation and the fact achieve expressed in effective situations.
You have learned that learning a language is something evolving and not fixed. To do this, you have to be flexible and adapt your methods and your level, your requirements and feel free to test several learning techniques, including those that are a bit unconventional. This is what will differentiate students who remain stuck in neutral for long.
This is a point often overlooked by a lot of learning and I really believe that it is harmful because for me, culture is an important point in learning foreign languages.
Indeed, linguistic aspect for me and cultural aspects are inseparable parts of each other. Because, for me, learning a language is more than a collection of words.
By learning culture it gives you the opportunity to learn more about the people in question himself: his way of thinking, their customs, their history … This will allow you to better communicate with the natives and to avoid mutual misunderstandings often between strangers.
Learning culture thus participate in its immersion in the heart of the language.
Moreover, today it is not the means to the lack of information (Internet, books, magazines, newspapers etc.)
As Chinese medicine believes that the integral aspect of the human body rather than focusing on a particular topic, I like to see language learning as “a whole” consisting of the sum of different skills that are like pieces of a puzzle to be assembled if you boast that you can control.
The core competencies that make up any language is for me:
Then, nothing prevents you to concentrate on more than another, for example, if you have particular difficulties.
For example, in English where we have greater difficulty in orally, which tend to be weaker. Therefore, the focus will be more on this skill by increasing my time learning for oral and reducing the time reading and learning skills that I’m very good at writing.
This list of features is of course not exhaustive. There is more I could really have their place here, but wanted to give the key in this section so that you have a general idea on how to make good progress in language.
