Some people might argue, the best way to learn a new language is to go to a country where
that language is spoken. I have not tried that method yet. I mostly learn on a website that I am
a paid member. One thing I do recommend is plenty of repetition in your studies. I speak Swahili,
write it, and listen to the language. The best method is the one you feel comfortable with. I am just
saying these are the ways I like to practice my Swahili. I carry with me a small notebook and pen with me
at all times. When I am at work, I write down the conversations that I have in English with myself, customers, employees, then translate those conversations when I get home in Swahili.
I also have a separate notebook to keep my conversations outside of work. This way I can have all my thoughts from myself, strangers, bus drivers, merchants, city employees, etc written down. When I am at home, I also like to repeat objects in my home in my second language. English is my first language. Images of what you are trying to learn is very helpful in a lot of cases. The more I make my learning my Swahili more fun, the better I will stick to my studies. I think I am learning more quicker as well. I do add new words, phrases, etc from my website to my vocabulary daily,or every other day. I do practice old studies once in awhile to keep it fresh in my mind so I don't lose it. What languages are you learning, if any?
