5 Principles: 07:59= #1 Focus on the relevant content of the language (master the learning tools) 08:49= #2 Use language from day one to communicate. 09:37= #3 When you understand the message, you unconsciously acquire the language. 10:31= #4 physiological training (understand what I hear) 11:45= #5 If you're sad, angry, upset, worried, you're not going to learn, period. 7 actions: 12:22= #1 I listen a lot. 12:43= #2 Understand the meaning first before the word. 13:31= #3 Shuffle (verbs, adjectives, nouns randomly) like children. 13:58= #4 Focus on the basics (1000 words are used in 80% of daily interaction) 15:22= #5 Get a language parent (practice and correction tutor). 16:29= #6 Imitate the gestures when pronouncing. 17:13= #7 Direct connection with an image.

@blackcat9100 Yeah, but I started to really get into it the year before. In middle school I was terrible at it and the first 3 years of high school I had no English classes. Btw, it doesn't matter how much it takes, learning a new language is a journey, the first time I went to London for example I was so happy I was able to move around and communicate with locals. I think learning languages is the closest thing we have to superpowers.

@Sad officier K by 18 my friend so it took more than 6 months, at least 2 years my guess would be plus being young, plus motivation, plus weed/beer maybe? I find that those two help a lot with learning ; )

@blackcat9100 Not true, I learned English by picking up the basics from school and starting watching videos in english with english subtitles. By 18 I spoke it so well that my English teacher didn't even care testing it because we could have full conversations. But I had passion because I wanted to understand hip hop music lyrics, it felt so frustrating to listen to music without understanding the words.

Very, very, very strong advice.

We just moved to Portugal and love to learn the language. For me these tips are crucial as I started by taking lessons last week. I noticed I've learned most at my gym where I come daily. The trainer is explaining everything in Portugese and then later translates it for me in English. I notice that I already understood a 60-70 percent before he translates. We are originally from the Netherlands so Dutch is our native language.

I’m English and moved to France when I was a kid. I remember being fluent in French in 6 months because as a kid, a lot of these principles were naturally in my environment: I went to all my school classes listening to french, I had a language parent - a teacher assigned to helping me learn after class, they showed me pictures with the words in french on them. Hopefully I can use these again to learn Japanese! I started a few months ago and still have a very basic level, that said I think learning to write in Kanji may take longer than learning to speak

I learned my second language, Spanish,in high school, and I applied a few things that this man is teaching, however he has more ideas which I think are very helpful. Now I am encouraged to work on another language, or improve 2 others that I have been introduced to. I also want to suggest 2things that were helpful to me in learning Spanish; one was listening to music that I like in the new language because it has repetition and patterns. Also printed words, especially like store ads, catalogs, picture books, etc. You can learn a lot of useful written words from store ads because they have pictures and words together.

...I'm from Algeria 🇩🇿 and I'm very proud. I really loved this outstanding conversation. Staying in the same context and approach. Personally, I did a research (I would like to share it with anyone who wants to learn English or any other thing in a positive manner)about the effects of cognitive-motivational strategies in bolstering up learners' oral performance .i.e. English speaking. The results revealed that utilizing positive self-talk like "I'm good enough, I can do anything I set my mind to, I can achieve it or do it..." before and while learning helps a lot in saving time, energy and effort and reduce anxiety, low self-confidence low self-efficacy and low self-esteem...so forth. The Second C. M. strategy which is personal goal-setting go hand in hand with positive S. T. at enhancing learners' ability to communicate effectively in English. In addition to that, in my Doctorate dissertation I wrote at the beginning pages: " what people say about you is quite important but the most important thing is what you say to yourself about yourself that has a tremendous impact on your success, mood, behaviors, health, wealth, and happiness..." to sum up, what makes a difference in everything we want to learn is believing in oneself and substituting the enemy within which is negative inner-talk with the friend within .I.e. positive inner-talk.

He forgot one main thing. You should begin to THINK in the language you want to learn. In the process of thinking, which is essentially talking to yourself in your head, use the language you want to learn to express your thoughts. That is very important! When you want to do small talk with somebody in the language you want to learn, think beforehand what you will say, how and why. I found that very useful. I could quickly learn the phrases I needed to but being able to improvise (which small talk actually is) is much more challenging. If you think in your native language and try to simultaneously translate to the foreign language a story, you quickly run into big trouble. That is why you have to learn to think in the foreign language. Then you can become fluent. At least these are my 2 cents...

It also depends how similar your target language is to a language you already know. e.g. If you already know Spanish, it's very reasonable to be fluent in Portuguese within 6mo. On the other hand, if you speak English then learning the Japanese writing system and grammar is going to take longer because there is simply more to learn. Plus there is a big difference if you spend 10hr per day learning or only 30min. Six months seems like the fastest in an ideal scenario, but people with other responsibilities won't have so much time or energy to learn that fast

From my experience, I can tell that he's absolutely right. I'm from Spain and I'm 16 years old, almost 17. I've been studying English since I was 3 years old at school, but it wasn't until almost two years ago when I became better at it unconsciously. I started watching videos and series in English, I read everyday in English many posts on Twitter and I was having fun with it. Nowadays, while my classmates are extremely struggling with it because they only study with books in class, I don't need to open a book because I've interiorized the grammar without noticing it, and also a lot of vocabulary. And that's the important and better part of language learning, just having fun while doing it. Now I'm applying the same tips in my journey studying french, which I´ve been studying for 5 years but I'm still in a very basic level, and Korean. Sorry for this long message but I wish you all a happy language learning!!

My friend showed me this video before i started to learn mandarin , approximately one year ago , I'm still very very very far away from speaking fluently . My only advice to language learners out there is ; Don't stress your process , let it take the time it's needs , Find a way that works for you , preferably a method where you can combine it with a hobby . Be happy as long as you learn something small day by day , even if it's just one or two characters or words , language is a long process . As long as you know more today than you did yesterday is a good sign that your going in the right direction . Good luck out there I hope we all can achieve our languages goals .

I've found that listening to a known text, over and over again, in the target language, really helps. (In my case, I've been listening to a chapter of the Bible in Hebrew.) At first, I knew a few words, and not much else. But, as I already knew the text content in my own language, I found that, each time I listened to the audio, I was able to follow where we were in the narrative, even if I only understood a few words. Now after a couple of months of listening through it once a day, I realize that I understand almost every single word of what I hear! Just think of what listening to, and learning one chapter of an audio book, almost to the point of memorization will do. It's a great stepping stone to build on. Instead of cramming vocab, I've learnt how Hebrew is stringed together into sentences, and I know many phrases snd sentences by heart. All of this at not much more effort on my part, than listening once a day. * I've also started following along in the text, listening at 0.75 speed. As with the listening part, I don't yet know the whole alphabet, byt have been able to follow along with my eyes on the text, and have been able to recognize words, and know where we are in the text.

I'm Polish speaking English since 1975 and Russian since 1977. Those were at school. In 1999 I've learnt Ukrainian in 3 months then in 2003 Spanish in 4 months, almost fluent. Just in the streets plus books. When it comes to communication the number goes up to 25 Indo-European languages. I never tried any others as I never needed them that much, although I'm interested in them just for fun.

As a multilingual, I can assure you . Listening is the single best way for getting good at any language. Even if you don't do nothing, you just watch contents in that language with subtitles every day for 1-2-3 hours for 1 month. Take it from me, you could unconsciously learn a lot of that language.

@Loveitdownunder 47 listening only will not get you there. You also need to work on the other steps that are mentioned, like learning the “tools” and bricks, and start building your own sentences. If you have an interest in speaking the language, you will be able to learn it. If you are not naturally gifted, it will take longer and you may never speak extremely well, but you can be proficient enough to be understood - the goal is communication, not perfection. However if you don’t have a strong interest in learning, and that’s your right of course, don’t expect to learn it just by being around native speakers.

It's a learnable skill. Can't say that about quick paced things that eliminate empirical thought process. Also things that take a ton of memory are not usually a skill but a talent. It depends.

In this video the speaker mentioned '' use your new language as a Tool to Communicate FROM 1ST DAY. It's useful. And I learnt we should listen a lot to improve our listening and also speaking. And if we use our part of body, the listener can understand us, even he/she is deaf. And also focusing on getting the meaning is important. And you should start mixing on food. Because if you do so, you can lern any language faster as he mentioned. And also there's the LANGUAGE PARENT ''RULES''. 1. Works to understand what you are saying. 2. Don't correct your pupil's mistakes, when they are speaking. 3.Confirms understanding by using correct language. 4. Use words only, the learners know. ... They are for teachers. And during the speaking, if you copy the face, listeners and learners can understand you. It looks like use bodly language as I said. ... . And the last one is Direct Connect to Mental Images. This is also important. So they are really necessary and important principles and actions that you need to work with them.

For example : I'm consuming the Japanese side of internet so much for entertainment, for learning other things, I have been watching a lot of anime (both with and without subtitles) I think it will take me another year to get fluent but I'm fine with that......

When somebody mentions that they speak this or that foreign language, I always ask myself: How well? If one looks at the DLI (Defense Language Institute) or ACTFL (American College on the Teaching of Foreign Language) proficiency levels, there can be a vast array of competencies. These stretch through different levels of Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Superior, all the way up to Distinguished. To carry on a reasonable, but limited conversation, one needs to have their level at the upper Intermediate if not Advanced. So, in talking about skill, or knowing a language, it all depends what one means by "knowing". Nevertheless, a nice presentation.

Well... it is always tricky to give the idea that everyone would learn at the same pace and reach the same goal in 6 months. I have been teaching for more than 20 years and I have seen so many different situations... that I am always careful when people ask me how long it will take them to be fluent in French. But there is one important fact that people should never forget and it is that we can ALL learn a foreign language, and it will take the time that it will take. Especially when we are talking about French language :)

@Colin S I have studied French at school but now I have forgotten a lot of it (due to not using it). But, surprisingly, I have learned Spanish without even trying! I have learned it from movies. So now, if I have to watch a documentary or something else to inform myself on a subject, I'd rather choose the one in Spanish because I can understand it better. I mean, in Spanish I can understand all the words (maybe one or two not), but when I listen in French I can't get all the words and it's annoying. After a while I get bored. Maybe French of ourdays is not the one I have studied at school. When I watch old movies in French I can understand them. The modern radio shows? Nope. They sound closer to Portuguese, like they are chewing gum while talking.

If you want to learn a foreign language, it is important consistency and motivation . You have to spend a lot of time in listening and reading that you like.
