Language Learning Tips

  • Plan a vacation to the target language of your choice (the obvious best approach).
  • Read magazines, journals, or books dealing with the language of your choice.
  • Review often what you learned (always keep the material fresh in your mind).
  • Watch a foreign movie with English subtitles.
  • Take the literal translations of the language with a grain of salt (unless you are studying the language as an elective at school, don't worry so much about getting the grammar right).
  • Practice speaking the language in front of a mirror (learn the proper movements of the mouth while speaking certain sounds).
  • If you have a little $ to spare then I highly recommend the Pimsleur approach
  • The internet can be a very valuable tool for providing the learning material such as Youtube or Sonia's Portuguese is a site which provides some online programs targeted in the Portuguese language. Just scroll down the page and you will find tons of online programs geared to the Portuguese language of Brazil.
  • Get yourself a language exchange partner on the net and converse via chat.
  • For people who enjoy games, like crossword Puzzles, learning can be fun. (Try my Portuguese crossword Puzzles)
  • And finally...find yourself a Russian hottie (A little humor never hurt).
