Interact in your language daily without travelling.
A big misconception is that you must travel to a country where your target language is spoken, to learn the language effectively.
this simply is not true...
A reason (or excuse) people mention for not learning languages is that they can’t visit a country where it’s a native language. No time, no money, etc. blah, blah blah...
Take it from me — there is nothing “in the air” in another country that will magically make you able to speak their language.
In my experience I’ve met countless expats who have lived away from 'home' for years without learning the local language. Because living abroad and being immersed is not the same thing.
If you need to hear and use a language consistently to be immersed, can’t virtual immersion be just as effective? Certainly. Now technology opens so many doors and makes it possible for immersion to come to you, without buying a plane ticket!
To hear the language consistently spoken, you can check out TuneIn.com for a vast selection of live-streamed radio from your country of choice. The app (free) also has a list of streamed radio stations ordered by language.
To watch the language consistently, see what’s trending on Youtube in that country right now.
Various news stations also have plenty of video content online in specific languages, such as The Guardian, New York times, France24, Deutsche Welle, CNN Español, and many others.
To read the language consistently, in addition to the news sites listed above, you can find cool blogs and other popular sites on Alexa’s ranking of top sites per country.
And if full-on immersion is your goal, then book a class with a native! Speaking practice can be achieved with Online classes, or Skype language exchanges.
A consistent speaking outlet, will ensure results... So what are you waiting for - Book a class now!
