Discuss the Article : 8 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Learning A Language
Often, we try something, fail, and learn from our mistakes. Here's a compilation of mistakes, or rather just things some of us don't do during our language learning journey, created just for you. This list will help you no matter what stage of learning you're at, but perhaps even more so if you're ready to dive into learning another language.
Thanks a lot for writing this article! It has very good points. I would like to give my opinion. (sorry for the mistakes).
I would like to point out the importantance of enjoying when you are learning a language. If you do not enjoy, finally, you will give up. I love a sentence which says " If we do what we like to do, it is the process itself that is the reward"
It could seems a very simple tip, but we usually forget it. For example, when we advice to speak with other people, I think that it is an incomplete tip. In my opinion, it is very important that you really like the person who you are talking.
For example, in my case, I usually talk English with two people throughout week. Do I want talk with them only because I am learning a language? Of course that no! On the contrary, mainly I want to talk with them because I really love speaking with them, and so they tell me their things! It happens the same if you are seeing a serious or a film, Do you like it? Are you enjoying? If not, you should change it. As i said before, it could sound very simple but many people force themselves to do things they do not like.
To sum up, when you are going to study a language, if you think "oh.. what bored",you should think what you are doing, and it changes the method! Do those things that you like it! Learning a language is a long race, and if you do not enjoy it , you won`t finish the race.
I'd like to add one.
Don't depend on others to learn a language. Many people don't learn anything without their teacher, language partners or friends. You can learn a language alone too. Just write, read or listen.
Thanks a lot for sharing this article!
