I have been learning english for 5 years, japanese for 1 year and i just start to learn chinese. in my opinion when we learn new languages, best way is look like a babe, firts hear alot after that we learn to speak, read and write.
how about you, Can you share your experiences?
I have been studying Japanese for 3 years, but when I really improved was when I started to speak with a Japanese guy on Facebook. Speaking and texting in Japanese, at first it was very difficult, but then I started to form sentences more fluently and I learn a lot of words and expressions. Also, I had to search new words in order to communicate and express myself better. That guy helped me a lot!
But of course, listening and studying grammar is very helpful too.
Hi Duy. I'm Zafer. I'm living Turkey but i am not a Turkish. Maybe you can know i am a Kurdish so my mother and father too. I agree that you said about what is the best way to learn a new language. Because although i am a Kurdish, i cannot write and read Kurdish. I can just speak. Alright then how can i speak to Kurdish? just like you said when i was a baby my family would have spoken Kurdis so i would have just heard. By this means i can speak Kurdish.
i living in japan now, and everyday, i talk with japanese people and ask them for some problem i got when i learning japanese, and you know, some japanese can't read kanji, they just can speak at all. Lol
With me i so scare to learn languagese with grammar and textbook, i just want to speak, understand what they are talking and respond with them and read news in language i'm learning, that's my purpose for learn languagese :))
