Motivation for

Language Learning

Motivation is one of the keys to successful language learning.   Maintaining a high level of motivation during a period of language learning is one of the best ways to make the whole process more successful.  As each individual is motivated in different ways, we have to find the right balance of incentives to succeed (or “carrots”)  and disincentives to fail (or “sticks”), encouragement, and the right environment in which to learn.

Advantages of Learning a New Language

We happen to live in a super-fast world where everything is connected. Ever since the internet came around, we have the opportunity to communicate with anyone in the world. In this connected world, learning another language is always beneficial in some way or the other. Studies have shown that bilingual people have a different way of operating things when compared to single language speakers. Learning a new language can be exciting, and you can get to learn a lot about the culture of people who speak that language and relate to them easily. The following are some of the advantages of learning a new language:

 

 

Makes you smart:

Who doesn’t want to be a little bit smarter? Well, learning a new language can make you smart. When you are learning a foreign language, your brain has to cope with the complexity as it has to understand the new patterns of grammar and sentence construction. We become better at key learning skills such as cognitive thinking and problem-solving.

Helps you connect to foreigners who speak in that language:

Say, for example, you have learnt French, and you happen to go to France. You don’t have to feel like a stranger anymore. When you understand and speak the language, the locals speak things will be much easier for you. Though you might not have the perfect accent, you can still read all the signboards and order your own food at a restaurant without any help.

Expand your career opportunities:

As we happen to live in a global society, people often tend to recognise the importance of learning a new language. Every country you go to, there is a huge demand for language translators. If your CV includes the fluency of speaking in a second language, you have an added advantage.

 

 

You create an opportunity to learn about a new culture:

Learning a new language is one of the best ways to explore the culture of people who speak in that language.  You will be able to connect with a foreigner when you speak their language. It is also much easier to understand their culture. You will be able to build an excellent interpersonal relationship as you both speak their language and understand their culture.

Builds your ability to multi-tasking:

If you are not used to multi-tasking, you can get quite stressed. When you learn a new language, your brain learns to shift from speaking one language to the other. You will also have the ability to think in one language and shift to thinking in a different language; this enables them to become multi-tasking people.

Improved decision making:

Studies have shown that decision making becomes easier for people who can speak a second language. Apart from learning the grammar and other things in a language, you will be able to judge the hidden meaning of a sentence, and thus your decision-making skills will improve.

 

Tips for Learning a Foreign Language

Have you ever been jealous of a friend or a colleague who can speak a foreign language without any trouble? Well, I’m pretty sure all of us would have been in that situation, and if you are motivated to learn a new language, we have listed down some of the tips to learn a foreign language. Learning a new language is not easy, you need to be dedicated and passionate about your goal. But at the same time, it is not impossible to learn another language. With a little patience and dedication, you can learn anything you want.

Find out what motivates you to learn the new language:

All of us have dreams, and most of us try to achieve it, but some of us due to the lack of motivation do not work hard enough to make our dreams come true. One of the key things to achieve your dream is to be passionate about it. There is a great difference between working towards something and being enthusiastic about something.  When you are passionate about your goal, you will be disciplined, and nothing can stop you. Learning a new language might be hard, but if you have something which drives you to learn it, you will have no trouble at all.

Think in the language you want to learn:

Most of us tend to think in our mother tongue. If you are trying to learn a new language, try to think in the language you want to learn. When you do that, you will be able to form sentences, and when you actually try to speak in that language, you will be able to talk without stammering.

 

 

 

Living in a place where the foreign is spoken is an added advantage:

If you happen to stay at a location where the local language is the language you want to learn, you have a great advantage. Since everyone will be speaking in that language, you will have no other option other than to speak in that foreign lingo. Wherever you go or do, you will be forced to read and speak in that language, and thus you will be able to learn better.

Embrace your mistakes:

We all are not superhuman, and we are meant to make mistakes. When you make a mistake, do not feel discouraged. Try to embrace your mistakes and learn from it. Making errors while learning is part of the whole process and so, when you make a mistake the next time, use it as a tool to improve rather than sulking about it.

 

 

Find various opportunities to speak in the language you are learning:

To be fluent in a particular language you need to learn to speak well in that specific language. Try to find opportunities to speak in the language you are learning so that you will be able to grasp the accent and the practice of speaking in that language.
