They introduce the concept of a language parent who can understand what you want to say and responds to your mistakes through conversation, helping you learn and adjust gradually.
It also says TALENT really doesn't matter when learning a new language! Don't worry about your language talent and don't be afraid to make mistakes!
I have experience in teaching foreign friends for over a year now and despite it being a short amount of time, they have vastly improved. That's why I believe I can help you too.
Let's dive in and learn!
- Focus on language content that is relevant to you
- Use your new language as a tool to communicate (even from Day 1)
- When you first UNDERSTAND the MESSAGE you will UNCONSCIOUSLY acquire the language
- Physiological training is needed (talking makes use of muscles)
- Psyco-physiological state matters (when you are happy, relaxed, then you will learn)
- Listen a lot (brain soaking, listen even though you are not understanding it)
- Focus on getting the meaning FIRST
- Start mixing (of nouns, verbs, and adjectives which lead to expression, then you can grow exponentially)
- Focus on the core (3000 words gives 80% coverage)
