I'm curious about how you guys learn a new language! What does work for you? And what doesn't? (Please, feel free to correct my grammar mistakes as well)
My method: trying all the methods that I hear about, and at last, I create my own method :D
Use mnemotechniques, have fun, read and listen about things that interest you, at the beggining don't learn so much grammar, it's really demotivating when you start a new language. Many rules will just sink into your head after some time.
Very good way is also simultaneously reading and hearing the same material, works great :)
Check out this facebook group titled: "learn chinese with music"
It's more innovative than any other method uttered in human history.
To take it easy & to have fun,
Practice all the time with different topics. Speaking is the most important for me.
