Language learning - The Most Effective Method Of All
 
14:18
There is lots of research and discussion on the most effective way to learn languages. The answer is, whatever you enjoy doing with the language. Transcript: Hi there, Steve Kaufmann here. First of all, I want to say that I did a webcam interview with Luca, the wonderful Italian polyglot. We are going to put it up here at my YouTube channel, but I’m waiting until I’m away because while I’m away I can’t do any videos. I’m going to be in Australia and New Zealand and so Alex is going to put up some pictures. I think Luca and I went at it for about 40 minutes or so, so it’s going to be at least four sessions. So that’s when you’ll be seeing those interviews that I did with Luca, just so there’s not a blank for a whole month. I want to talk today, in the subject of language learning, about something that’s kind of been running around in my mind. I come up with all these things that are the key to language learning and I may have used this before, I don’t know, but it suddenly dawned on me that the most important thing is, is it fun. Do you enjoy doing it? I mentioned this in my 7 Secrets to Language Learning, I think the first one was spend the time and the second was to do things that you enjoy doing. Study the full transcript on LingQ: https://goo.gl/pRgnrD Timelines: 0:04 web-cam interview with Luca Lampariello. 0:42 The most important thing is fun. 1:22 The gold-list method by David James review. 4:05 My experience with the gold-list method. 4:49 It works if you enjoy it. 5:42 Time is the most important criteria. 6:09 Does the gold list method work for me? 7:00 Is listening worth spending time? 7:56 You have to find what you actually like doing. 8:19 My way of doing flashcards. 9:10 Creating Lists VS Reading & Listening. 10:46 Passive vocabulary will activate when it’s necessary. 12:46 Finding the content you enjoy is crucial.

7 Ways to Learn a New Foreign Language Effectively
 
04:15
There are many ways to learn a new language. We summarized the 7 most powerful ways we know to do that. Hope it helps. To support us visit http://www.patreon.com/sprouts “Drown Yourself to Swimming” Leave the comfort of your home and go to the place where they speak nothing but the language that you want to learn. Then live there for the next 6-12 month. It might be painful and lonely at times, but you will surely learn how to speak the language and enjoy some memorable experiences. Immersion “Perhaps easier and also effective is immersion or when you learn a new language through exposure and context. So, for example, if you are learning Italian, do so in a Pizzeria. You can try to read the menu or maybe even go as far as order in Italian - Antipasti, Pizza Tonno, or Gelato anybody? Mnemonics Mnemonics, is a method to learn new vocabulary by creating an association that makes it easy to remember. For example, let’s say you want to remember the French word “chou”, which means “cabbage” in English. “Chou” is pronounced like “shoe” in English, so you could imagine putting cabbages on your feet instead of shoes. Then, when you need to remember “cabbage”, your brain will think “cabbage, shoes, chou”. Scriptorium Scriptorium is an exercise in writing. Students write the language while simultaneously speaking it out loud. Before you write a sentence you should first read it out loud, second say each word aloud again as you write it and third read the sentence aloud again after you have written it. The purpose of this exercise is to force yourself to slow down and pay attention to detail and then review unknown words and refresh your grammar. Shadowing Shadowing is used to learn vocabulary. You listen to new words through headphones and try to repeat, to shadow them out loud as quickly as you can. Inventor Alexander Arguelles, who speaks 50 languages, suggests that you do it while walking swiftly to maximise alertness and blood flow! Tech and Apps If you want to learn a new language , but you don’t have anybody who can help, check out whats available online. DuoLingo for example teaches many languages entirely for free. Its fun and effective as they make you practise reading, writing, listening and speaking. Quizlet is great tool to study vocabulary. It allows you to explore audio supported flashcards. So you can learn new words and get the pronunciation right. Get a Studybuddy If you are not into technology and would rather learn with others, do what popular YouTuber Timothy Doner aka Polyglot Pal recommends. Connect with people from around the world to teach and learn from each other via Skype. Its one of the things that worked for him and he already speaks 20 languages and he’s not even 18.

Speed Learning: Learn In Half The Time | Jim Kwik

What would you learn if you could learn it in half the time? Another language? How to start a business? Get excited about this, because Jim Kwik is about to show you how to tap into your speed learning superpowers. Join his free masterclass here: https://go.mindvalley.com/Superbrain We’ve been taught a giant lie — we’ve been taught that our learning is limited and fixed. Want to know the REAL truth? Learning is absolutely LIMITLESS. You can learn as much as you want, about whatever you want, and, yes, as FAST as you want. In this quick video, learning and memory expert, Jim Kwik, teaches you how to tap into your speed learning superpowers so that you can learn anything in half the time — and make it stick. He uses the simple, yet witty acronym: FAST Forget — Forget what you already know about a subject. Open yourself to learn something new. Start every subject with a beginners mind. Also, forget about what else is going on in the world around you — distraction is not friends with learning. Finally, forget about your limitations; your learning is limitless. Active — As Jim Kwik often says, “Learning is not a spectator sport.” We don’t learn through consumption, we learn from creation. Get active while learning. State — By state, he means the current mood of your mind and body. Information, when combined with emotion, creates long term memory. You can learn much more by getting excited about what you learning. Ever notice how you tend to remember the names of people you find attractive much more easily? Hmm… Teach — Learn something as if you are going to teach it to someone else. When you teach something, you get to learn it twice. When you learn faster, you achieve faster. It’s time to start speed learning. ABOUT JIM KWIK: Once labeled “the boy with the broken brain,” Jim Kwik is now the world’s leading expert in memory improvement and brain performance. He is a powerful Brain Coach for Hollywood superstars, top universities, Fortune 500 organizations, and big-time entrepreneurs like Peter Diamandis, Richard Branson, and Elon Musk.

How to Memorize the Vocabulary of Any Language Using A Memory Palace
 
19:34
Would you like to know how to learn 200 Words (Or More!) in ANY language ... In as little as only 10 days? If you need this video in written form, check out this post on how to memorize vocabulary: https://www.magneticmemorymethod.com/how-to-memorize-vocabulary/ In this video: How to Learn & Memorize the Vocabulary of Any Language ... Using the Magnetic Memory Method (Advanced Memory Palaces) If you'd like to improve your ability to learn and memorize foreign language vocabulary by as much as 100%, 200%, even 300% ... using simple memory techniques that you can learn in a few short hours (or less), then this may be the most important video course you will ever view. Believe it or not, it doesn't matter if you have a good memory or not. The information in this course will teach you: •Why memory is like a bicycle everyone can ride (with some minor personal adjustments). •The real reason why no one should ever be squeamish about memorization or learning a language. •Why and how some of the most famous memory skills are applicable to language learning. •How to create a 26 "letter location" memory palace network based on the English alphabet. •Unique techniques that will have you literally "tuning in" on your dream foreign language. •How to separate foreign language words in the most effective manner for memorization. • A simple strategy for memorizing the male, neuter and feminine genders (depending on the language, this is a process that some people consider the ultimate nightmare of language learning.) •Two secret ways to use relaxation to aid the memorization process. These two methods alone are worth the price of this course because they will literally eliminate stress from your body as you work on learning and memorizing foreign language vocabulary. •And much, much more ... These techniques have been used by real language learners, most of whom previously considered themselves owners of a "bad memory" to make real strides in their foreign language learning efforts. Don't worry! None of these techniques are rocket science. Frankly, if you can memorize a short email address or the name of a movie, then you can use this system to memorize the vocabulary of any language. But there's really no time to lose. Every day that you are not using this simple vocabulary memorization system, you are literally stealing from yourself the joy of reading, speaking and knowing another language in depth as you easily expand the natural abilities of your mind.

Teaching Vocabulary to Young Learners Through Brain-Based Teaching Strategies by Setenay Çelik
 
12:33
Having started with the point that children learn easily and forget quickly, I have been working a lot on how to teach vocabulary to young learners by improving their memory skills. If it comes to memory, it is well worth searching about the brain. Throughout my search, I have found out that as long as the teachers meet the needs of the young brains, it is easier for the learners to remember new vocabulary items. In this presentation I’m planning to share my findings and ten practical brain- based activities that I use in my classes and find really effective. Setenay is from Turkey and she has been teaching English for 8 years including 4 years of teaching when she was a university student. She holds a Masters Degree in English Language Teaching from Gazi University in Ankara, Turkey. Her particular areas of interest are teaching English to young learners and creating new, useful classroom materials and activities.

New Blog Post with 3 Bonus Techniques: https://www.lucalampariello.com/how-to-memorize-vocabulary/ Today you will discover 10 incredibly effective techniques to memorize vocabulary in a new language. What you need to know first is that many language learners either have never heard of these techniques or they simply don’t know how to use them. In the first half of the video I’ll discuss about what is word networking and how you can develop that by using a holistic approach through listening, reading, and selection. This will enable you to quickly understand basic spoken language and identify the words that you need in everyday life. In the second half, I’ll tell you how you can use the association-deconstruction-dynamic repetition formula to build-up a broad range of vocabulary into your long-term memory. In the end I’ll touch upon the untapped benefits of note taking and how you can use that to memorize vocabulary quickly and efficiently.

How to Learn a Foreign Language on Your Own
 
01:01:20
Over the past five years, writer Ellen Jovin has serially studied 18 languages on her own, outside a classroom setting, while relying on widely available teach-yourself resources. She has supplemented these studies by using New York — one of the most multilingual cities in the world — as a language-learning lab. In this Hangout Ellen will debunk common myths that prevent people from starting a new language, while also discussing strategies attendees can use to teach themselves, on their own time and in ways that best suit their individual learning styles. Questions encouraged!

Reading Is the Key to Fluency | How to Learn a Language

My book: https://amzn.to/2VkMEjE (affiliate) Zero to One: http://amzn.to/2zPGa1V 1984: https://amzn.to/2OOvRB9 Audible's free 30 day trial: https://amzn.to/2PrHa38 My microphone: https://amzn.to/2OQmIYF In this video, we will cover how to learn a language to fluency with a particularly heavy focus on reading in language learning. Why reading though? How on Earth can you get fluent by reading ink off a page? There's so many good ways to get started learning languages these days thanks to technology, yet whether you are looking to just speak a foreign language fluently or just at the basic conversational level, reading is the fastest way to conquer language learning as a whole. If you really want to know how to learn a language to fluency, listen to the language learning experts (aka polyglots), and most of them will tell you about the power of reading when it comes to learning foreign languages. It is an essential part to building a massive vocabulary, and it should be included in any language learning program if your goal is to speak fluently. If you want to be fluent and also completely understand native speakers in real life, on TV, or on the internet, an extensive range of vocabulary is required. Read for hours every day to acquire that vocabulary, and that will teach you how to learn a language to fluency naturally and quickly. ~~~ Subscribe for more: https://goo.gl/6sb31h ~~~ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/fluent_japanese_from_anime Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fjfaam Twitter: https://twitter.com/fjfaam Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/fjfaam ~~~ Other videos you might like: Is Immersion / AJATT the Most Effective Language Learning Method? https://bit.ly/2ITop4X Polyglots: How and Why They Can Speak So Many Languages Fluently: https://bit.ly/2u7Z3Ld Language Learning Secrets DO Exist!

READ THE COORDINATING BLOG POST : https://wp.me/p8wklJ-1TX Charlotte Mason encourages us to teach young children to focus on the spoken language, rather than the written in the early years. This can be done by using the language at home in a living context and through play. Once the child is ready to move onto the written language, I love using flashcards and bilingual books whilst they are young, before beginning any curriculum or workbook.

#1 STRATEGY to becoming FLUENT  [and why you DON'T NEED to 'sound like a native speaker'😱]

Learn how to stop wasting your time watching the WRONG video lessons on YouTube, how to make every time you learn something new STICK, what’s the most effective way to enhance your vocabulary and how to own that FLUENT MINDSET that is so crucial when speaking English as a second language (you’ll also learn why I HATE the term “sound like a native speaker”).

NO 🌏Where are you from? Tel-Aviv, Israel (I speak Hebrew) ❓ How did you lose your accent? I learned acting in NYC and acquired an American Accent. So I never really lost anything. I also talk about it here: https://goo.gl/PShZ9s 🤔 How can I sound more like a native speaker? You don't have to. A foreign accent is not a bad thing. It's a part of your identity. Of who you are. Your goal should be to sound clear, to have an impact when you speak, and to feel confident in your English voice so that you never let your English hold you back or prevent you from achieving your goals. Aiming for 'speaking like a native' sets the bar so high, you may get discourages and won't even dare to try. #CommunicationOverPerfection 😩What's the worst thing about traditional English training? It's taught as if everyone has the name needs. And it's mostly boring. 🇺🇸Do native speakers think you are American? At first. But later in the conversation, they may detect a subtle accent. Depends on what I'm talking about and how tired I am. I don't care about it too much though, I'm a proud non-native speaker ✊ 🇮🇱🇵🇸What do you think about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? I think land is not worth dying or fighting for. I will always promote peace and co-existence. And for me communication in English is a way to overcome political and cultural barriers. 🎓Do you teach 1:1? I don't. I have an amazing colleague, Natalie, who teaches 1:1 at my school and online using my methods. I also have an online program called Accent Makeover that runs 2-3 times a year.

Find your own voice. It's important to improve your pronunciation and fluency so you feel more confident and capable. So YOU can express yourself better, and minimize the gap between your native tongue and your English. And If someone makes fun or judges you because of your accent, simply ask back: Oh, and how many languages do YOU speak?! 😏 People who only speak one language don't always understand what it means to overcome the challenges of speaking a foreign language.

Shaping the Way We Teach English: Module 07, Learning Strategies
 
12:41
The goal of teaching strategies is to create autonomous learners, learners who can learn by themselves inside and outside the classroom. Research and classroom practices are evolving in many directions to try to better understand and facilitate learning for students of all ages. In general, successful language learners tend to select strategies that work well together, according to the requirements of the language task. These learners can easily explain the strategies they use and why they use them. An innovative offering from the Office of English Language Programs, Shaping the Way We Teach English, is a 14-module teacher training video series developed and produced in cooperation with the University of Oregon.

4 steps to memorize vocabulary in a foreign language
 
09:40
This is my process for learning vocab. If you have another method that I didn't mention, let me know in the comments! The problem with learning language through a prefabricated course is that they are going to teach you so many vocabulary words that you just won't need at first. With my method, you will start your language learning by learning only the words that are directly relevant to you. Then, as you progress, you will gradually learn more and more complicated words when it becomes necessary in conversation. I recommend creating your own personal phrasebook, that includes vocabulary that you are going to use to describe yourself, and vocabulary from the songs that you listen to in your target language. Then, input these vocabulary words into a digital flashcard app or website, and study them every day. Once you have a (very) basic grasp on these words and phrases, it's time to start using that vocabulary in conversations with actual native speakers. I want to stress the importance of moving to this step as quickly as possible, even though you might not be comfortable. You will never be comfortable with your current level in the language you are learning, and the only way to advance to the next level is by practice. It's never too early to start practicing with native speakers.
