Since then I searched and I found the best way to learn a language. To speak a language, listen to it as much as possible. Also, to write well, read as much as you can.
Listen, I didn’t know these things from the beginning and I thought that if I did what my teachers required, then I would say if a movie is American, British, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Korean, because that was my goal. I didn’t know other way and I spent so much money on “English without a teacher”, “French in 30 days” and “Learn to speak German” and these are all books. How can you learn to speak a language without hearing it?
I decided to try another way: just enjoy. So, I listened the songs I liked so many times that I learned them by heart, l watched my favorite cartoons, sitcoms, soap operas, movies and TV shows. This way, learning English changed me in so many ways, it gave me courage and power to change my life, because, guess what? I’m coming to Canada this year. As a permanent resident. This is my most important reward.
So, dare to learn languages because this way, you can shape your own destiny!
