Did you decide to learn a new language in the summer and don’t know where to start?

We have prepared tips for learning a language that will make the process way more productive and entertaining!

Here are some tips from the Kharkiv IT Cluster.

  • Find motivation. If you do not have a weighty reason to learn a new language, you will quit soon enough.
  • Find a partner to learn the language together for support and additional motivation.
  • If you cannot find a study partner, talk to yourself. Of course, you don’t have to do it in public, but you can practice at home.
  • Decide how much time you have for learning. Exercising four hours on the weekend is a bad idea, as you should practice every day. We recommend you study for two hours three times a week, and 15-30 minutes daily.
  • Watch movies, TV shows, interviews, listen to podcasts. The main thing is to choose your level. Watch an episode with subtitles first, then watch the same episode without them.
  • Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. If a person understands you, it is a good sign. With time, your pronunciation will get better, and mistakes will almost disappear.

You don’t have to become a polyglot and learn a new language every season. Practice and improve at least your English, it would come in handy!
