👋😊 Hi! Learning new languages is cool. I want to share how and why I chose 2 new languages to learn, and tips on how you can decide a new language to learn.
These tips are to make things easy, but the easiest thing is = learn any language that you find fun, engaging, and are passionate about!
People can learn the hardest things if their heart is into it ❤️
I’m currently learning 한국어 which seems pretty random for a girl that has lived all over the United States. I chose Korean because I am very exposed to the language, and immersion is key to learning!
I watch almost exclusively Korean TV and my local church has a Korean study group that I hope to be able to help. We’re not meeting right now because of (you know), but we will in the future. Not a day goes by when I don’t listen to Korean. So:
1. Choose a language you will hear often.
2. Choose a language that you can practice with your community/friends/family.
3. Choose a language that is challenging and engaging.
I chose Italian because I can’t pronounce French 😑 Hahaha! It’s true! French would have been so much better, because my hubby speaks it, but… I just couldn’t. I already have a Spanish accent, and my French is just atrocious.
However, Italian is a Romance language, which makes it close to Spanish. Both languages originate from Latin.
The Romance languages are:
If you know Latin, or any one of the languages above, you can more easily slip into learning a new Romance language!
Though I don’t watch Italian TV, I have found some nice Vlogs in the language. And because it’s so close to Spanish, I am learning it quicker than I thought possible!
1. If you know English or Spanish, the Romance languages are an easy step to take.
2. Vlogs are a great way to listen to normal everyday speech.
3. Choosing a language you find FUN TO LEARN will keep you motivated daily.
Those are my tips on choosing a new language to learn 🙂 I hope you are up to the challenge! Communication and language is beautiful ❤️ How many languages do you know?
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
You can do anything you set your
mind to with hard work and perseverance!
