What are your best learning tips?
Everybody has a method that they use while working on learning languages? What is yours? I know many people write stuff down. I want to know what your method is. Have a fantastic day!
When you finish a course on duolingo you are probably not advanced enough to do much except basic reading so what i do is i try to go to wikipeda and i try to find short articles in the language im trying to learn and every time i find a word i dont know i copy paste it into something like google translate
And then after that i try to find short youtube videos in the language if you like playing video games try to change the language settings of the game and try to multitask so you can train even when you are doing other things
My tip may sound like wishy washy gobbelty goop, but please keep it in mind. Have fun. When you love a language it becomes wildly easier.
Keep it fun and enjoyable as much as possible
I enjoy fan fiction
I try to read the short stories written in French for Harry Potter, Doctor Who etc
As I have progressed very slowly through the Duolingo French course I am finding that I am understanding a bit more, but I still have to lookup a lot of French words.
Another advantage is that the fan fiction writers are often young so I get to learn the less formal French
I use additional sources. I look up definitions of words, grammar rules, proper pronunciation guides. I learn best by writing things down, so I write down the new vocabulary over and over until it sticks to my memory.
I've also recently started listening to audio courses. When you're learning a new language, speaking is the hardest part, so it's very important to get that practice.
