Language learning…Transactional vs. Connector. I prefer the latter, but you need to be ready to roll up your sleeves and work. Work then repeat, have some frustration, then repeat.
Did I mention repeat?
These ideas are focused on Spanish, but with a little tweak, you could use them with any language.
Here are some ideas to get you started some of these ideas work better on your smartphone and some on a tablet, and finally some on your laptop. The key to all these ideas is repetition and mixing the order of use. Mixing the order of use means, when you get bored or better yet when you want to challenge yourself out of your comfort zone mix things up.
Always right away practice; reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
Good luck… A president once said that you cannot do everything today, but you can do one thing.
Do one thing…..
I try to practice every day, but I always have to remind myself that even though I have practiced hard for three years, when I stand next to an eight-year-old Mexican boy he has five years and the time in the womb ahead of me learning and speaking Spanish.
I will never be a native speaker, but I can enjoy the total experience…
