How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
Korean language tools.
I have been trying to self learn for about a year seriously but like 3 altogether. I have bought a few books. Today the latest two that I bought have come in. I cant find any classes near me to take yet. So I figured I would review the books I have on here. The first korean language book I have ever bought. I did not actually find this one helpful to me and my style of learning. This book seems better suited for a class then for self teaching. I bought this December of 2016. I bought this book when I bought the first book. This book is helpful as a dictionary of sorts. I actually haven't got to use it much. I bought this December of 2016. I bought these flash cards with the other two books. I think they will be more useful to me when I get reading hangul down and also speaking. These two were bought at a book store on my birthday so April 2017. I find these two to be the most useful books yet. I have learned a few phrases and also have gotten pretty good at counting in korean because of them. They are small books easy to carry around. I take mine to work to study on breaks. I would actually recommend buying these as supplementary texts in your learning. They are pretty cheap at around $7 a book. This was a gift from Isolda on here when I won her knk contest a few months back. I have found it to be very helpful in my learning and would recommend it. I just got these two in the mail today and will let you guys know how they are. If you have any of these let me know how you like them. If you have something different what is it and how's it working for you?
