7. AND REMEMBER…

  • Mistakes are part of learning — in fact, they are the best way to learn.
  • Practice makes perfect, so it’s a good idea to take every opportunity you can find to incorporate language learning into your everyday life.
  • Learning a language is all about having fun.
  • Bonus — Dating someone who speaks the target language and not a word of your native language is the quickest way to learn a language: you’ll be fluent in a month. And best of all, if you make them mad or do something wrong, you can claim that it was lost in translation. Ha!
