If you are reading this article, it is because you know the importance of the first steps, and because you have asked yourself: How do I start learning a language?

In this text, from Lingua Language Center, we will answer this question and give you the first steps to follow to achieve your goal, whatever language you want to learn.

Of course, this information must be backed up as rigorously as possible. Therefore, we will cite information published in the journal “Psychological Science“, according to which language learning is enhanced by early and frequent exposure to the target language.

Therefore, it is important to start learning a language as early as possible and to practice it regularly. But when is early?Should it start in childhood? In adolescence or early adulthood?

In our language school, we have a principle formed over time and through tens of thousands of classes taught: the time is now. Today.

We are convinced that, with willingness and will, a person can start learning a language, and succeed in learning it, at any age. Of course, there are academic steps to follow, as well as your own.

In this article, we will focus on the steps that each person can take on their own:

How do I start learning a language?

  1. Learn the alphabet and pronunciation: Before you start learning vocabulary, it is important that you learn the basic sounds of the target language. This will help you pronounce the words correctly and understand the language better.
  2. Learn vocabulary: Once you have learned the basic sounds of the language, it is time to start learning vocabulary. You can start with simple words and phrases and then gradually work your way up. An effective method for learning vocabulary is to use flashcards or mobile apps that allow you to practice vocabulary in an interactive way.
  3. Learn grammar: Grammar is the structure of the language and is important to be able to construct sentences correctly. You can start with the basic grammar rules and then gradually work your way up.
  4. Read in the target language: Reading in the target language will help you improve your reading comprehension and vocabulary. You can start with simple texts such as children’s stories or news articles.
  5. Listen to the target language: Listening to the target language will help you improve your listening comprehension and pronunciation. You can listen to music, watch movies or series in the target language or even practice conversations with native speakers.
  6. Practice with native speakers: Practicing with native speakers is an excellent way to improve your fluency and confidence in speaking the target language. You can search for online conversation groups or even hire a private tutor.

It is important to keep in mind that each person has his or her own learning style and what works for one person may not work for another.

But beyond all of the above steps, which are at least the initial ones, it is always advisable to take language classes with a teacher who has mastered the language and who can correct mistakes, highlight strengths and find ways for the student to advance.

That’s why we recommend the classes we offer at Lingua Language Center, where we lay out a solid path for our students to progress smoothly and complete the process until they speak like true native speakers.
