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.

What is The Best Age for Kids to Learn a Second Language?

Everyone should learn a second language fluidly. It’s something you’ve probably heard as a kid during some point in education.

Evidence suggests that it gets significantly more difficult to learn and retain a new language as you age. You know this all to well if you have tried picking up a different language when you’re older.

Parents have been grappling with if and when it makes sense to start teaching their children a new language.

You Have Longer Than You Think

A Harvard study suggested that children gain the natural ability to learn during the first 3 years of their life. Meaning that the earlier you start introducing new languages, the more likely a child will naturally pick up and retain the subject.

According to further research, 50% of our ability to learn is developed in the first 4 years of like, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to learn quickly later in life. A new study suggests that we can continue to learn at a quick rate of 17 or 18. That being said, while children can learn quickly past the age of 10, it is unlikely that they would become fluent in a language if they begin learning later in life.

The Consensus

Parenting is hard enough, so if you’re fretting about whether or not you need to enroll your child in the next “Toddler French Master Class”, just take a breath.

Contrary to popular belief, you have more time to teach your child a second language than you think. Although, it definitely can’t hurt to start sooner rather than later. Those young tender years can set a child up to be fluently bilingual. But, if your child is older than 3 or 4, you still have plenty of time.

You can wait for your child to show an interest in a specific language, you can throw on a few educational TV shows, or even partake in a few flashcard sessions, but you don’t have to worry if you kid isn’t bilingual before they are potty trained.

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.
