5 Fun Ways to Learn a Foreign Language

Learning a new language isn’t always easy; it comes with its own set of challenges and frustrations. However, if you ever want to be fluent you must stick at it, even when it feels too difficult. The trick is to find more exciting ways of learning. Here are some of our ideas:

  1. Go Abroad

Visiting a country that speaks the language you’re hoping to learn is a great place to start. Rather than reading a list of vocabulary from a sheet of paper, you will be forced to get involved in conversations, listening and speaking in a contextual situation, so you’ll be more likely to remember the words and phrases at a later date.

  1. Watch Foreign Films

Watching a foreign movie once in a while (with or without subtitles, depending on your skill level) is a great way to learn a new language. The best part is that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home. By listening to words and phrases spoken within a conversation, rather than on their own, they will actually have meaning and stick in your mind.

  1. Listen to the Radio

Head to iTunes and download some music in your target language, or simply put the radio on next time you’re in the car. If there are words you don’t understand, write them down and look them up later. You’ll be singing along before you know it.

  1. Label Items in Your Home

To help with your general vocabulary, try labelling objects around your home using stick-it notes. If you see these labels at least once every day and practice saying them out loud, you’ll be more likely to remember them during a later conversation.

  1. Make New Friends

Friendship is a great way to learn a new language because you still get to hang out and have fun, whilst continuing to learn. You will likely feel more comfortable practising with a friend rather than a stranger because you won’t be afraid to make a mistake.
