How can you best learn a language in addition to household obligations, raising children and a full-time job? (I’ve been trying this for years with moderate success.)

I don’t know what the best method is to learn a language.One method I use, and I’m really no “krak” in learning foreign languages, is regularity: daily exercises, long or short as it is daily. Furthermore, I have no obligations to learn a language within a certain time. Everything is relaxed. It’s just interesting to discover that sounds that were a year ago still a strange knitting (I’m learning Indonesian) are slowly starting to form a structure. I often use Google translate to look up words. For example, I stand in the kitchen to cook and wonder “How do you say in Indonesian what is in the kitchen”? I look for these words and form part of my daily exercises. I write the words I learn in my textbooks in the Chegg flashcards app. That way, when I’m on the bus or the train, I can practice those nothings. In addition, I bought some podcast lessons that I listen to when I do my work walking or shopping. I also bought a good grammar of the Indonesian language (search for the grammar books used at high schools or universities). If there are any specialist questions, I can always look it up. After a year, with a basic vocabulary of about a thousand words you can already correspond with someone. For this I use the website Language learning with native speakers.Through WhatsApp I have regular contacts with native speakers in Indonesia. Furthermore, I remain realistic. A language truly learning lasts for many years. If it does not succeed so quickly, then I do not let the courage sink. I watch children’s programs in the new language on YouTube. Videos are also often found with simplified language use. In YouTube You can also adjust the settings so that you can look up videos within a language area. With advanced search you can create a filter on videos with subtitles.

The best way to learn a language is ‘ immersion ‘.Pleases me well. But then you also have to read books for the gramatical and vocabulary.

The best method is repetition, repetition and repetition.With three times five minutes on a day, six days a week, you can get very far. (No seven days, so you need to go to the lessons on the free day).

You can also approach the language in many ways, gramatica, vocabulary, listening, speaking.

As an example Farsi (which I only know is Persisch; Farsi/Persi (the language).

  1. It uses Arabic script.

Takes me about a year to get the hang of it well.

  • It’s quite a world language
  • Many resources, apps, websites.
  • I think it is important to practice on paper.Scripture. A booklet is also very useful, especially because you can browse quickly. First go to the library. Even a kind of twilight set up what you want.

    Just by learning Scripture you get a big vocabulary.At the same time you can learn a lot about gramatical.

    I don’t see why I wouldn’t be able to do this.I play keyboard/piano myself with great pleasure while I’m really not a musical talent. Now also practice me to learn music from the head. A language is just such a thing.

    You have to study it so that it is not about the result, but about the pleasure of learning.The five minutes always as a relaxation. The sense of learning is paramount. If you walk against something you see as a mountain, you focus on another aspect of the language.

    The very best you learn in a country where the language is spoken.No option, in this case.

    What can you do?That depends on dedication and the possibility of not being disturbed at all. If necessary, arrange a babysitter and then lock up in your bedroom or in a hotel room.

    Creating a schedule with how much time spent per day is helping as well.But that requires commitment and discipline to use the time as planned as well.

    You say two things: first, you’ve been trying it for years.Secondly, you are busy and it is difficult to study.

    The first is that you probably already have a solid basic knowledge.If there is no time to study, I advise you when that is possible to listen to the language as much as possible when you can. There are some great ways to get you loaded with the language in question at any appropriate time: that’s possible via free downloadable apps.

    You can choose from an endless range of radio stations in any language.If you do not find what you are looking for, you can still look for interesting podcasts in a language of your choice.

    Thanks to the basic knowledge already acquired, you will only expand your knowledge of the language.That does not mean you have to understand everything and in the beginning it will be used because you are dealing with conversations that are not adapted to people who learn the language as second (or third,…) language. However, you will be amazed at how quickly you get used to the natural use of the language. Which would be impossible without basic knowledge.

    I like to watch the BBC.When I used to look at certain programs, it was necessary to turn on the English subtitles (intended for the deaf and the hearing impaired). A fast pace is often spoken and guests often have a difficult accent and do not always articulate well. But over time I used these subtitles more and less and now almost no more.

    Watch a lot of television in that language, listen to the people who have the language as their mother tongue and start imitating them first.Later, you develop a vocabulary yourself. Take notes on what you learn. Also use Google translate or other language sites.

    The word “obligations” is all the language you can change.

    For children caring and working for your livelihoods, you do with your heart and your soul.

    That is the language of your self-dialogue that you can change first.

    And there will be time and rest in the future to learn that other language.
