Language learning is simple for some, while many others face serious problems. Actually, language learning is easy; if you understand the gaffes you make and learn to avoid it. Regardless of whether you are doing some online course for free or through translated texts, through educational programs or games, flashcards or through some other method, you are sure to make these gaffes if the tool you are using to learn a language is not of good quality.
- Learning like a science
Learning a language is a process, but cannot be compared to any other profession or science. It is a skill and so, simply revolving around raw information will not help. This is the first gaffe you must avoid while learning a language. Generally, the language is divided into chunks such as grammar, vocabulary, spelling and sentences. Just going through that will not solve your problem. It will take you nowhere and will have no effect. It is not enough if you just know the process, you must put in your best time and dedication, even if takes you a longer time to learn.
- Taking large intervals
Learning is a process which means it should not have intervals. It is like a furnace that needs firewood constantly to see the fire glowing. The same goes with language learning. You have to put hard effort continuously and taking large intervals suddenly means it is a killer. You cannot take large intervals while learning because it detaches you from the learning procedure and to restart it needs once again a lot of motivation, self interest and patience. Taking large intervals is another gaffe, best avoided.
- Learning speedily
Anxiety leads to speedy learning. This affects the skill of learning a language. When you rush you are sure to ignore or forger some very crucial basic hold on a language. In the aim of learning fast, you skip some essential basics. There will be missing grammar, and when you get going with advanced terms; you will notice that you lag overall touch in the new skill. Rushing while learning a language is another gaffe best avoided. It is right to take more time, understand the conversation and to move only after knowing the right concepts. It is not of use to ignore things that you do not understand.
- Adapting theoretical methods of learning
This may be a problem when you only focus, theoretical way of learning. All the time you cannot work on theoretical styles, there may be a practical problem, where you may land in no man’s land. The theoretical learning method is another gaffe because the theoretical learning of language fails to give you right pronunciation skills and you will not be confident with the actual conversation. In fact, you may not be efficient enough to use the information you stored all these days.
- Learning monotony
Doing anything monotonously leads to more mistakes. There may be online courses offering practical lessons as well. However, you need not give a big break, but a small gap is required. Learning a language is a long process. You can reduce the monotony, so that you learn better and faster.
