Feed Your Mind By Learning A Language

Jan 3, 2008
There will be certain points in your life that you wish you should have took language lessons one summer when you were still in grade school. However, we can't go back to that right now, so you might as well work with what you have, right? Wrong. Even though it seems a little too late, if you are motivated enough, then go for it. Better late than never, as they say.

You are lucky to be living in this generation where almost nothing is impossible. There will always be a way, and learning a certain language is no exemption! So if you are so eager to start speaking with a different tongue, then read on and find out which of the many ways would suit you best.

Online

Using the world wide web to learn a new language is a good way to spend your time online. Try to browse and check on as many websites as you can. You can study during your break time in the office. A lot of sites offer tutorials and lessons for free. Make sure that the site has everything you need. You also have a headset so that you can hear dialogues of that language which will help you pronounce the foreign words better. If you plan to study Hebrew, it also helps to browse sites on Hebrew language. On the other hand, studying online tends to strain your eyes so ensure proper posture and distance between you and the monitor. Always rest your eyes every once in a while.

Audiobooks

If you have chores to do, tasks to finish, and deadlines to beat, but you need to learn this language for some reason, then an audiobook could most probably be the answer to your problem. All you need is a portable media player. With audiobooks, first you have to check how commonly spoken your choice of language is since some audiobooks are very hard to find. Scour every library, bookstore, audiobook rental, and websites. You can also save a lot of money if you try looking for free downloadable kinds.

School

Going to school for the second time, why not? Choosing to study a language in school is one of the best ways there is to be able to really comprehend and speak fluently. If you have enough time and, of course, money, then you might as well learn it in school. This way, you can easily engage in friendly conversations while using the language. And a bonus is that you have classmates who might share the same troubles that you have. You will do all kinds of activity that would perhaps show varied situations that you could find yourself in. You enhance your speaking skills by applying it. An example is during school plays. And besides, if you study in a language school, it would be like having a formal education.

Books

Many people find it easier studying with books than with a teacher. Books are also a whole lot cheaper, anyway. This is only a good option if you are a book-lover and if you have time reading one. Else, you will eventually leave the book lying around. It is also better if you use a book and an audiobook together so that you will know how certain words are pronounced and spelled.

Personal tutor

Having a personal tutor makes studying a language seem easy because you can always ask him or her without hesitation. However, finding a personal tutor will give you a hard time and you might end up changing your mind and losing the motivation to study. But if you have a friend who is multilingual, count on him to help you then. The important thing is that your schedules do not clash. Besides, if he or she is really your friend, then he would surely charge the sessions at a much cheaper price.
