Although English is my native Rosetta stone language, I taught in grade school Chinese Mandarin and Teochew, start learning French in high school, traveling in South America recently, I fell in love with Spanish. Through these years of experience, I summed up the following to accelerate the speed of foreign language studies skills.
1 Immerse yourself in which
Unless you start to think about the Rosetta stone use of this foreign language, knowledge of at least quickly master a new language is almost impossible. But how can a do not speak a foreign language to think about it?
The answer is very simple, is to make their infiltration into which. Travel abroad, your ear is always haunted by a new language, its pronunciation, rhythm, intonation – in the street, on the bus, on TV, etc.. Your brain has already begun processing and interpretation of the new language.
The trip better way than simply travel to participate in some kind of volunteer activities to force yourself to “run” in a new language, or working overseas. The best way is to completely melt into the local life (for example, housed in a local family), and you want to be completely isolated and said the local language.
Melt into the local and into their music Rosetta stone, culture, media, politics, sports, family, and so on. To create such an environment, then you is half the battle.
Forget about the translation: to think like a child!
How kids learn to speak? Unconsciously, without any shyness, by imitating repeat a variety hear the language is like that.
So if your pronunciation is not accurate, or you can not remember the correct language state, what should I do Rosetta stone? Opening to say, even if it looks like you are babbling. You must suppress the urge to attempt to soil language translation costs, which is only shortcuts to fluent in a foreign language.
Into a restaurant with a prior back good single phrase to the waiter point, it is better to hear the locals how a single point Rosetta stone, as much as possible to imitate them. Included in the greeting, chatting. Attention to their facial expressions when talking; learn from their mouth.
To imitate their look and sound like a child. Although you may not be very accurate understanding of what they said, but the end result is to make you think of these sounds / phrase / word where appropriate. They will want it in your mind, miraculous. This is a new language to think a threshold.
How to say?
In Rosetta stone addition to the day-to-day greeting, a sentence, you must remember and always be ready to say, it is “How do you say that / what is that called?”
A curiosity Road, Walker, ready to ask questions, to stay very close to the locals. Does not take much time, you will find that they are acceptable to you, got used to communicate with you. Such day-to-day exchanges and locals is the best teacher: the establishment of a goal every day – ask some of the things you’re interested in but do not know how to say a few words conversation. Even if such conversations may not be very smooth, you are also in progress.
(4) to write out
After having conversations, jot down the things you remembered hearing but didn’t quite understand.
After each conversation, a simple note of you can remember those who have not heard too clear. (If you write a travel blog, which has a dual role).
Then go back and check the dictionary Rosetta stone Spanish. Find those words, to reassemble those words in your mind. Then, the next conversation, you learn a word with.
