Cors y Gedol Burial Chamber, North Wales, 12.4.17.
Last time I visited this site was in the last day of 2016. Very different weather this time! One of my favourite prehistoric burial chambers with a notable capstone. It is roughly 84ft in length and likely built in the Neolithic.
before I`m interested in foreign languages. I learn English and Italian only
but I hope one day this list will get bigger.
So, I wanted to share my experience in learning languages with you all.
If you are not very organized (i am) it will be good for you to find a school
of foreign languages or a teacher. As to
me I prefer to study with a group. This way you can practice your speaking
skills not only with your teacher but also with people whose knowledge is the
same as yours. Better to study with people your age. So, my English group
consists of three 16 year olds (I`m 16 too), Italian: 18 year old and 24 year
old girls. I feel myself okay with them
matter if you have classes with teacher / group or learn language yourself you
can use all of these tips to improve your skills.
To know any
language well you have to be good at 4 things:
about all of them.
Listening. You need to listen and understand what you`re
listening to. How to do this?
• Watch films, tv shows, youtube
videos, cartoons in the language you learn with subtitles. For example you
start with subs in your native language, watch, listen, read subs and try to
‘connect’ them. When your skills will get better watch with subs in this
language, to understand written text is easier than just speech. Also you will
know how some words are pronounced.
(I think everybody knows English
speaking Youtubers or at least it`s not difficult to find them, what I can`t
say about other languages. So I made two playlist of Italian and RussianYoutubers I like. Check it out if you learn one of them.)
• Music. When 2 years ago I
became interested in English I started with this. I was listening to the song
while reading its lyrics in English, then in Russian, than in English and in
Russian again. Repeat it hundreds of times. Or at least just listen to music in
• Audiobooks and podcasts. You can just listen to them like podcasts or
listen while you are reading (the same book of course). Almost the same thing
like watching films with subtitles. You can find original book or adapted for
• Exercises. Buy a book or find on the internet listening
exercises for your language and do it.
Speaking. It`s quiet easy. Just speak.
With yourself, oh how many time I did it and heard that my friends had
done it too. In the car, at home, etc. You can record it for the memory or to
listen it later and find your own mistakes. It`s okay, if you are alone now,
speak with yourself.
• If you have a friend who learns
the same language offer him/her to speak this language always or just
• If your lever is good start a
channel on Youtube. You will have to
speak really a lot. There`s no other way, your speaking will get really better.
• Learn lots of words. To know the language fluently you have to know many
words. So, develop your vocabulary.
• Read and translate quotes,
phrases and so on. It is not hard to open Tumblr/twitter/etc. and read some but
it is helpful.
• Books, stories, fan fictions,
blogs, etc. Just read a lot.
• To improve your spelling just
rewrite texts of your level. You can find more here.
• Do lots of exercises. As I have
already said you can buy a book or find them on the internet.
so, i hope some of these tips i know will help ypu to achieve the success.
