Learn a Foreign Language Another Way: In Your Native Country

Learn a Foreign Language Another Way: In Your Native Country

How to learn a foreign language? Usually you learn your first foreign language in primary school. In many countries around the world, English is the second language to learn. When you learn a new language, it means starting all over with the basics, and then trying to put everything together to make sense. Some say that children learn faster. According to an article on the website “Testbig“, the capacity that children have to learn quickly is considered an advantage in learning a foreign language. That could be the reason why we start learning very young. How to learn a foreign language at home When it comes to improving the learning of a foreign language, there is one option that is obvious: go abroad. But we all know that traveling or studying abroad is not affordable for everyone. Even though many universities offer scholarships, not all students are eligible. However, if you are able to study abroad, it can be a valuable experience. Check out this student article “Study in Vancouver” on the LingoStar website. But if you are not able to travel, there are other alternatives. First, being familiar with the sound of a language helps a lot. The more you hear it, the more you will understand it and be comfortable with it. Your pronunciation will improve and it will be easier to speak by becoming familiar with the accent and vocabulary. Secondly, audiovisual works, music or even a friendship with a foreigner are some of the best ways to master a fluid accent, understand the different nuances of a language, and learn different local accents.

Culture shock: transform it into a positive experience

Culture shock: transform it into a positive experience

What is culture shock? As the phrase itself states, culture shock is the feeling you experience when facing a cultural situation that is new, different and unknown to you. Although the word “shock” seems rather unfriendly and negative, undergoing culture shock doesn’t necessarily have to be an unpleasant experience. Believe it or not, it can turn out to be a really enriching, positive and life learning one. But, how do you survive culture shock? Top 7 things that can cause it First of all, we need to understand that culture shock can be presented to us in both obvious and more subtle ways. We can experience culture shock when coming in contact with different: Languages – Especially when meeting somebody from a faraway country whose language is not only spoken differently but it is also written differently. For example, an English speaker being introduced to a Chinese speaker or a Korean speaker being introduced to a Portuguese speaker.Weather – This can be even harder for those used to extreme weather. For example, an Alaskan native used to very cold weather traveling to an island on the Caribbean.Landscapes – Imagine moving from a mountainous town full of lakes and forests like those in Switzerland to an arid landscape full of cacti like in Arizona, United States, or the other way around.   Food – Here we’re talking not only about tastes, colours and smells, but also about quantities, meal schedules and customs. For example, in Latin American countries as well as in some European countries, people tend to have a snack between lunch and dinner called “merienda”. And don’t even get...
