    How often do you really use it? For example, how often do you speak English?

    If this is what you're doing I think I've been using this way unknowingly and I am improving, I believe... This process is more of a theoritical study. How about the actual study... Do it as you learn it.

    In school we were taught to learn with books but it is not everything we'll be using at As you get to the company everything you've learned is nothing but basics. The more you do the actual job, the more you can connect it with what you've learned in school and get the wider view of the real work ahead, so I guess it's just the same with English...
    We learn in books and in school but it's not enough to know it, we also need use it!
    In using English, there you will learn you're mistakes soon and you will discover what other things you need to brush up with in your skill....So use it!


    {just a learner as you are}

    Re: How to learn a new languages?

    Hello,
    What you have said is right, but I think tho way to learn English is to learn or acquire vocabulary and the best way to do so is to read articles or books. Then, try to pick up all the words, not at once, and try to look up them at the dictionary. You should memorize them and pick up their context in which they are usually used.

    Furthermore, try to place these words into their lexical categories (nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs...).
    After doing this, building sentences becomes the next step. So, try to build simple sentences that contain subject, verb, object. Later try to develop the complex senetences.

    The next job is trying to integrate these linguistics components with the cultural context that makes our speech meaningful. You have to know that language cannot stand alone without its cultural context or background to build meaningful utterances.

    Translation is not helpful for beginners, it leads you to confuse your language and the learnt language. So, it's better to learn English as an English child and forget about your language while learning the new language.

    Talking with friends in English is very helpful to master your peonunciation and conversation skills.
