Work Learning Techniques into your Schedule

I'd like to talk to you about something which is very important. It's a very important technique here, and it's called Variety Now. I spoke to this. I spoke to you about this briefly before. The thing with writing, which is so important, is that you make something monotonous. You make something the same. You're not going, Teoh carry on wanting to do it. It's gonna become boring, tedious, dreary. It's not fun anymore. So the idea here is to diversify our learning process. Andi, a very clever Brit British poet, actually, although I think he was declared insane at some point. His words ring very true for language learning today, and he said, Variety's the very spice of life that gives it all its flavor. And when we talk about this, we need to be thinking about how we couldn't make sure our learning journey is varied. The main focus is making sure that we're always doing different things at different times. So in orderto step me through this, we need toe focus on maximizing our ideas, get ...

creative, think about the ideas that we have in our head on the way we can actually put these into practice Andi Golden rule here again, we've seen this before. We need to be sure that we're using our time as if efficiently as possible. And as I said previously, the more diverse are routine is the more enjoyable it automatically becomes because we always enjoy doing something different. How Maney was remember saying, Oh, it's the same old thing, The same old thing Isn't God date same old thing. Take up diversity. Take up variety because we know that the light clear it is that it will become enjoyable are at least mawr enjoyable? Andi We've already looked at different ways of passive learning, and we can also and need to do this for active learning as well. So my question is why we're coming up with these ideas is essentially this to you all. And I'd like you to at home send me in your ideas and here in the audience in the studio audience to tell me what you think we do A bit of a brainstorm on what do we need to focus on in order to learn our language? Because learning your language isn't always just about using one book or one app are learning vocabulary list off by heart. You need to spice it up. We need to use different methods. We know that. So what do we need here, then? What are the elements that we need of the language in order to make sure that what we're learning is that is what we really need. So I'm gonna put here language on I'd like you to throw out or to send in any ideas about what you think we need when it comes. What's really important towards to grasp, to understand, especially in the beginning. What we need, what elements, which elements we need to understand. T be ableto get to know the language. So what would you say is your first thing that comes to your head? Greetings. Yeah, it's very good because you can't go into a shop and then just while you can, but you'll probably be thrown out. He just go in and, you know, just a throw it under the counter Greetings are very important. Very important. Karama Another good g Gramma because despite what Yoda says, Gramma Sandra Online says basically Cavalleri first. Yep. So, by basic vocabulary, we can understand this as essential words and items that we need in our everyday life, that can be greetings. You can also be fruits, vegetables, numbers, things that we're really gonna encounter in our life that we need. Anything else. Patterns? Yeah, I think that's a great one, because we've already picked up on this. We've already seen. That is actually really, really easy at times to decipher what something means simply because we follow a logical pattern. And in this case, we're gonna see even more patterns because we've seen the differences are the similarities between German, English and Dutch. But in certain languages, we really have a case of patterns which we can establish, which we can. We know that if we go until the in that language and then to another one that's related to it, we already know without even learning the language that it has to be This so that's really great. So we have four. Is there any in any last one? Thank you. That's exactly the one I was looking for. Because this is probably one of the biggest ones. Because how can you learn a language if we don't even know how to speak it? Andi really got you said all these because thes I will link together or will have been linked together. And these will form the four main elements that we will be looking at when it comes in the advance. Part two Teoh Quiet vocabulary on Teoh Improve our techniques in acquiring in the standing grammar and syntax and syntax based in Texas. Understand? Aziz Theo The word order on dso

Class Description

This course is part of the Learn a Language Bundle.

We all know learning a new language to be a daunting prospect. It’s hard to identify where to get started, what elements of speech to focus on, and how to get organized. The fear of making mistakes can be particularly crippling, preventing us from leaving our comfort zones and talking to native speakers.

Join Matthew Youlden from Babbel to develop a cohesive plan for learning your new language. In this class, you’ll learn how to build a language learning foundation. 

Matthew believes that if you practice 10 minutes a day for a month you will be conversational in any language you want. He will teach you how to create a blueprint for learning, map your goals, and use your time effectively. Also, with this class you get access to an amazing "Language Workbook for Beginners" designed by Matthew to help you start to learn the language of your choice which is in addition to the in-class exercises that help you put what you learn into practice.
