Not everyone finds it easy to learn languages. Others, on the other hand, literally seem to absorb words in foreign languages as if it were the easiest thing in the world. And yet we all once learned a language from scratch and have a perfect command of it: our mother tongue. Scientists assume that we already learn to understand words, sentences and grammatical structures in our mother’s womb. If you, as an adult, seem to have forgotten this gift, the professionals at the Multilingual Office Translation Agency in Essen can give you a few tips here.

Make use of your style of learning

There are four different types of learning methods that can contribute in different ways to learning a new language. In this context we all belong to (at least) one of the following learning patterns: auditory, visual, kinetic or communicative.

Being an auditory leaner, you will find it easier to memorize spoken words. Read texts to yourself. Buy for yourself audio books in the foreign language. Meet with people in need of communication who speak the desired language. As an auditory learner, all of this will be particularly beneficial to you.

Persons who belong to the visual learner type will need to see what they are learning written so that they can memorize and remember it. Index cards, books, but also sketches and pictures combined with foreign language sentences are particularly helpful.

Learning by doing” is the kinetic learning type. Walk through the room while learning vocabulary. Go among people with whom you can practice the language directly. Touch the object whose name you have just learned.

Role-playing games, discussions and other conversations help a communicative learner to understand his world better. Learning alone is not desirable here, because only through a conversation will it be possible for you to remember everything.

Recognise your goal

Why do you want to learn this language or improve your existing language skills? Only when you are aware of your goal will you be able to embark on the right course of learning. A completely different vocabulary is required for a holiday in Spain compared to that for a job in Argentina. Align your learning program with your goal. Commitment is required right from the start.

What is not used, rusts. Apply your language skills, however limited they may be, from the outset so that you never get out of practice. You will, of course, make a few mistakes first, however these are ideal ways to improve yourself. Therefore, you should speak, read and listen to a foreign language as often as possible!
