The Beth and Jim Conversations – 7
I’ll use Spanish as the target language in this case, but these tips apply to any second language you may want to learn:
– Learn Spanish at school / college / university
– Live in a country where Spanish is spoken
– Live with a Spanish speaking family
– Attend school with Spanish-speaking students
– Do an intercambio (exchanging English and Spanish conversation with a Spanish speaker who wants to learn English)
– Be fascinated by Spanish
– Watch TV in Spanish (especially programs with language content you are already familiar with – such as football matches, weather forecasts – so you can pick up the words and phrases faster)
– Keep a vocabulary book;
– Memorise the words and phrases you hear and think are particularly important to learn
– On returning to your country continue studying Spanish
– Maintain contact with Spanish people you met previously
– Maintain contact with people in your own community who speak only Spanish
– Start a business which involves Spanish!
– Marry a Spanish speaker!!
