R Zgar R.
to be exposed to the language whether its listening or talking, reading or writing, if you practice the language one way or another you'll learn it
Jesse A.
The best way to learn a new language by doing something that include with the language such as listen to music, watching movies,or learn it by language apps provided in the app store.
Calyssa W.
To learn a new language you have to study and be consistent. You should practice by speaking, reading, writing, and listening to learn the language. This way, you get practice in all of the ways that you would apply the language in real life. I use Duolingo and complete a lesson every day.
Evan T.
Well you can try using helpful apps there are many out there practicing daily , try to speak in the language you are trying to learn as much as possible. Watch videos, shows, movies in that certain language
You can even try to reach out to a friend who knows the language well or hire a tutor for the same.
Amelia F.
The best way to learn a language is to take your time, go through the alphabets of the language if possible, get a dictionary of that language so if your stuck somewhere you can get your answer
Sabri N.
Watch movies, listen to songs in that language memorising the lyrics and their translation, and when you are ready and used to you phone set it in that language. Grammar is important, but you must practice the listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
Kent E.
Speaking it often is the best way. But if you can’t do that, try watching movies in the language you want to learn, without subtitles.
It’ll force you to remember old words, learn new ones, and also how to speak informally.
Especially since books always teach us the formal way of interaction anyway.
Dorina A.
It is useful to learn new words with study cards and to repeat them later. I also recommend active and passive listening, as they are truly amazing and enjoyable tasks to do.
Ang Le U.
Well I started learning french last year.I am using an app called Duolingo,it s very helpful.But I also read books in french,listening to music and watch movies in french.I hope this helps,Good Luck!
Victor N.
Watching movies, cartoons, shows,& listening to songs in that language. Making your own notes-jotting down everything you learn everytime, apps like duolingo and babbel help so much! and the most important PRACTICE! keep practicing.
Alex U.
Actually listing is very affective way to learn a language, exact same when we were kids learning our native speaking language from our perants! Tada
You can speak any thing you want!
Angie Y.
You can start by using the app duolingo, it teaches you how to learn different languages across the world and also consistency and self-discipline
Sarah O.
I will be short and precise
Watch a lot of dramas related to that language!!
Another way to a perfect start off Is to learn alphabets
Shivani O.
To learn the language, first understad the culture of the people. When so ever enough intereet is developed, the language can be learned a lil easier. Use dictionaries, books amd application to get access. Speak it out loud to get the natural tone and accent of the people.
Randy P.
According to me learning a new language recquires passion. Motivation. Spirit. A will to achieve. It should be done on a daily basis. The keys should be revised. The language can be learned from day to day life, TV shows etc. Try to use it as much as possible. In appropriate conditions. And for this I personally prefer Duolingo.
Maryam O.
The best way to learn a new language is first of all finding a good, engaging and smart coach that can be your guide. I had been learning Arabic language and the teacher I chose was so amazing, he made me remember concepts in a few sessions. Not only did I understand the concepts but also memorized them. It's best to seek help from an expert or a person who has that language as his/her mother tongue. Then you have to put effort by your side. You have to make understandable and eye catching notes of each session that u can look up to when you seem to forget some stuff. Then you have to try to memorize that stuff in free time and test yourself on them. You can watch videos that r in that language to test your understanding and/or communicate with the ppl who speak that language. In my opinion it's best to start with grammar and learn vocabulary side by side bcz vocabulary just gives u the blocks and grammar helps u to connect those blocks in the correct way.
Ivy Z.
Let me describe how I learn new languages. First I use Duolingo daily,about 5 minutes only. It helps with knowledge of the vocabulary for the language u r studying And then I also listen to videos on YouTube to kind of hear how the words are pronounced. Yep
Martin E.
You can study it at school, at university, at the college or by yourself. That doesn't matter. The only thing that you need is dedication!
Mazie P.
The best way to learn a new language is to visit the country and speak with people who are speaking in the same language you want to learn from, practice & consistency is key, study & practice often & keep it simple to begin, step by step
Nino E.
Learn the basic and go around people who speak the language and use it. You will suck at first but you will learn the quickest
Marie Luise U.
I can speak from experience because 4 years ago I started learning Spanish and I love it!
Personally, I think that something you need is a good teacher – someone who makes learning that language fun, entertaining, and memorable – this way you'll have much more motivation whilst learning what you need to succeed! Watch t.v. shows or listen to songs in that language; it will help to get your listening skills in. If you study it in school, speak to your teacher in that language and if not, try to just practice saying phrases over and over again – for your pronunciation. Hope this helps 🙂
Alex A.
I have never truly learned a new language, although I speak Filipino and English. I can say that exposing yourself to their media and culture is a good way to learn! You can simply start by even reading children's book as a beginner.. ! It would be helpful if you dedicate an hour of your day into learning too! Hopefully this was helpful in a way!
Roriz A.
Find a network of people trying to learn the sam language, always speak to them in the language you want to learn. The more you comunicate, the more you learn
April E.
Do some research, listen to the sound of the language, asd sope songs in that language to your playlist, let you be comfortable with new language. After this try self education to know the minimum of the language, and then gon
Joe Ann T.
Repetition and relatively constant exposure. Write a journal in your new language, even if it’s very basic sentences, like “my name is blank” that’s a start! And watching Tv and listening to music in your target language. I’ve found that salsa and bachata is great for Spanish and K-pop is good for Korean.
Victoria C.
I think that the best way to learn a lenguage is speaking it with friends or family or, in the other hand, watching series or using apps in the lenguaje you want to learn. For example I speak spanish but I do at least one thing of those evey day, and I learn more and more like that.
Patrick A.
Watching videos, trying to speak, occasion writing all contribute to learn a new language. Ther is not best way to learn a language. It is all them combined that produced efficient learning.
Esther U.
Practise Practice and Practice. Learn to speak and develop introductory conversation skills. Understand the grammar and practise it everyday. All the best!!
Kerieri R.
I think from myy small experience that listening to alot of the language you want to learn is the best way throug (podcast TV shows and many various ways ) and reading anything you can as a beginner and then reading more like books and articles that we'll help and for writing and speaking skills the best way is tho practise every day with yourself or with people and making a routin will be helpful
Ankita E.
It totally depends on you friend. But I do prefer 1st alphabets nd then continuing with small words.. Nd then sentence. 😊
Eckehard F.
In my opinion everyone first need the right motivation to start. Then if they want they can research pdf fails and other documents, notebooks, student books from which they can start with the basics. Then they can find theyrself a teacher and other way to study. It's also a good way to study the language by reading books, watching videos, studying about their culture.
Dhairya C.
You can use duolingo application from playstore. It is a free language learning app. It has 20+ languages. It is like a game and u just need to give 10 mins of ur day to this
Jennifer I.
The best way to learn a new language in my experience is to speak to native speakers or setting a certain goal about the language you want to learn. I think that there’s many ways you could learn a language but setting goals and socializing with native speakers really opens your mind to the language.
Maur Cio C.
We We can learn a new language by communicating with your friends or by reading books firstly you need to learn the language I mean the bases after that you can use that in your daily life no matter you made a mistake you can overcome at by continuous repetition
Felecia U.
duolingo can help you, duolingo has a lot of languages you can learn from, and it's very easy. you spend every day for atleast 15 minutes just for this app. it helped me a lot.
Bezawit U.
I’ve been doing Duolingo for Spanish and it’s been great. Just keep doing a little each day and you’ll notice you e learned a lot without feeling strained
Maria B.
Start by buying a 1 grade book of it and then download an app or take someones help to read it then start writing the letters. As Soon as you finish 5 pages do a recap.

Do this everyday!

Zubia A.
There are more than many ways to learn a new language but for me the easiest one is to start learning by watching videos or listening to audios of that language ofcourse with subtitles so that there will be a start of new inspiration and intrest in your mind for that language and you'll get some words that'll maybe attract you to know more of them … A good start will lead into a deeper and a perfect end ,and in this way you'll begin to enter in a new world of people communicating in a totally different and exciting form ✨
Beatrice F.
First way
Try to speak with the person frequently who also knows the language (only if known and not a stranger)

Second way.
Read books of that specific language and translate it and try to understand every single words.

Third way.
Using a translater would be easy also with starting of reading words and then starting of with making sentences and list them down and the meanings just in case if you forget it.

Fourth way.
Using a app like Duolingo would make it alot more easier with setting up reminders and goals.

Kaitlin P.
U can learn a new language by watching language totorials or if u have a friend who speaks that language learn it from them by communicating with them in that language
Petros F.
The best way to learn a new language is by watching show or a show in the that particular language that you want to learn and turn on the subtitiles. Naturally and by observing few words one will be able to able learn the desired language.
Cory Z.
For me the best way is to take notes and learning that language daily for some minutes,cuz a little time can teach so much and reviewing that and taking tests can help learn our mistakes and correcting it can help to learn more
Ursel T.
I think the best way to learn a new language is to immerse yourself into it. If you want to learn how to speak a new language, then find a speaking partner and commit yourselves in conversing only in that language, or better yet, go to the country where the people natively speak the language and you will be forced to learn it.
Maryam R.
The best way to learn a language is continuity.It may seem difficult at first, but it will become your friend in the future.
Carl E.
Don't start thinking like you know it all,. Think like a toddler who is learning something new put your mind at that state.
Aiyana O.
The best way to learn a language that you're unfamiliar with is to start by learning new words and repeating them throughout the day to either yourself or another person. Another way is to have conversations with people who are either fluent or stronger in speaking the language than you are, on a daily or weekly basis. The key is to not be embarrassed by your pronunciation of words and being consistent in your learning.
Sophie N.
incorporating it into your everyday life. Watch movies in a different language (subtitles are fine), listen to podcasts or people speak in a different language.
Jean W.
The ideal way is to go to that coubtry and speak with the natives until you become fluent. The second best is to use YouTube. Maybe ask a native speaker if you know one about pronunciations. Practice whenever you have the chance. Complete sentences and talk to yourself in that language. Of course, textbooks and audio books can also help.
Mony U.
First of all it's very important the reason why you do that, when we start to learn a new language it's normal to give up after few time trying, but when we have the motivation behind us it will be quite different the way we get our purpose
Louane Y.
The best way to learn a language is to like the language that you pick to learn , to belive in yourself and to do the best
Anna X.
The best way to learn a new language is to actually experience it. By that I mean that you have to be present with people who are native with that language around you. So you can learn it easily, from experience I can say that is true. For me it has worked. Even though I go to an English Language school (private lessons) and have a level of B2 – C1, I am surrounded by people who speak English and I watch a lot of English YTers. So yeah.
Jane P.
I really found Duolingo very helpful, visual, intuitive, not schoolteacher strict, pleasant, engaging, on the level, something for everyone, makes me feel like I can do it. Most importantly, one needs a purpose or two for learning.
Abbas T.
Try downloading apps like Duolingo and get a dictionary of that language and start adding that language to your English slowly also speak with native speakers and watch TV shows in that language .This trick worked for me so try it ,try putting the language subtitles but let the audio be English .GOOD LUCK ON YOUR JOURNEY AND REMEMBER YOU CAN DO IT👌
Willi Z.
Hi! My way to lern english is this app. Every tame i need understand something there, i translate it, and then use it. Thank you, super app!
Alex N.
I think that there is nothing more effective than going to the motherland of the language that I will give ladies there, but this option is quite risky and not suitable for everyone, and can be replaced by high-quality training courses that include regular practices, for example, communication with a native speaker.
Mario F.
Well,i'm not a teacher.But i recommend you to use duolingo app tu learn a new languange, i'm studying arabian and japanese at the same time the app really help me a lot 🙂
Kent P.
A gamified app like Duolingo might be just what you need. I started to learn Japanese 72 days ago and I am on a strike since then ! Take it slow, start with a few words, take a notebook and write every new word and phrase you learn. After a few lessons, copy again all the words. Then translate them. Then try to test yourself with some dictation like if you had a teacher and that was your homework. After a while you'll be able to understand a few words and phrases, maybe even some writing depending on how often you did the copy.

However good all the above may sound, I think the best way to learn a language is to have a motive. When I first started to learn Japanese I wanted to travel to Japan by the end of the year, so I wanted to at least be able to read the signs and understand instructions. Later on I found out that the travel won't be possible, so I practiced less, but kept it going. After a while it was a habit and it's important that it takes very little time in the specific app that I am using. So it was easy to keep up even without my initial motivation. I found out other motives later on, like not to break my strike, like I maybe I'll travel later so I should keep learning, like the excitement that I got when I started to understand the symbols e.t.c.

To sum up, start small then build up. How are you going to start ? Find a motive to do it ! Something fun like a travel, or simply look at the learning process with curiosity. "What new I am going to learn ? ", "I can understand this much by now ", maybe have a look at the culture of the natives. It is important to find out why you do this and then you'll see what moves you to keep up. Then it's just practice practice practice, first in writing or listening because it seems easier to me, then speaking.

Salvador E.
The best way? In this question, you can never ever ever go wrong with songs and movies. Joining a class or using some free apps like duolingo is not a bad way out too but let me tell you my secret way as an artistic person. Paint or make a sketch of anything and then write some beautiful phrases of the language that you're learning. Do not copy this phrase from internet. Write it by your own memory.
Kaveesha F.
I think the best way to learn a new language is use it practically in every day life and also watch tv series and movies from that language is such a good way to learn I've learn lot from it.
Ralph S.
You need focus and constancy , practice every day and introduce the language you are learning into your routine. having a good method is also important for learning.
Cynthia F.
Use Duolinguo or take a class online or in your city – practice and consistency are your best friends. Listen to music or watch movies in this language so it becomes more familiar to your ears
Mary Y.
Personally I love to find the easiest materials and study it. While also practicing and watching videos. Also attempting to speak it or read it online.
June E.
i use duolingo, but a fun way to improve in a language would be through watching shows and documentaries, or reading. i personally think the idea of surrounding yourself in the language a lot as well as speaking it really helps to quicken one's language proficiency.
Britney F.
Try watching your favourite show/series and put the language you are learning as your audio, then put the subtitles in the language you can read fluently. That will improve your knowledge of the pronunciation of the words in the language.
Lisa N.
First – the motivation; when, where and how will it be used? A vision board, travel brochure, details of local groups for them at nationality so it becomes more accessible.
Then, invest in a tutor/lesson. Just 30 mins a week can feel like a huge confidence boost.
Finally, an app. One that has daily challenges so there are incentives to using it every day, even if only for a few minutes.
Listening to or watching programmes of that language will help to tune in to the sounds and phrases.
L Andre Q.
Learn the basics words and how to conjugate. Then watch movies, news and songs in that language. Make friends and communicate with people from that country or place , if its possible take a 6 months short visit to the native speakers destination and learn their culture using their language
Zelaine P.
You need to learn the basics first.
Use some apps (I really like Duolinguo) to make it fun.
When you feel confident with the sounds of the lenguage (it can be tricky if it's very different from the ones you already speak) try watching cartoons and TV series with subtitles in the target language.
You can start with cartoons you already seen in your native language and then move to something new.
If you have some friends who are already fluent try some easy conversations to practice your speaking skills too.
This is a solid start.
You cannot skip the grammar which I think is best explained in grammar books. I just think that starting in a fun way will give you the motivation to do also the "boring" part 🙂
Adrianna S.
Practice it daily if you need to by setting daily habits, be committed to learning the language for however long you wish to learn it & download apps that will help you to learn the language faster, better, and more understandable
Lillian C.
You can use language teaching apps like duolingo . They have easy and fun exercises to help you with your language learning
Annemarie Q.
I recommend starting out small like getting the basic idea of how the language usually works. And for me I find that learning about grammar really helps me. And once you get a good grasp on the language, listening to and reading media with the language is a good mental exercise to remember what you've learned. But this is just my opinion, I still need to work on my language skills myself, I'm only a beginner so probably take this with a grain of salt.
Mikkel G.
Keep practicing- listen to native speakers, write a few sentences everyday and use new keywords, learn the grammar rules, keep applying it. 😀
Tobias Z.
Learning a new language is best done by the basics. If you learn basic grammar and terms you can use that as a base to grow in fluency and accuracy.
Md U.
Watch video contens with subtitles first for oral learning. Then learn the letters of alphabet, then word, then sentence, & then stories, poems, novels, etc. to be skilled in reading and writing.
Damien C.
The best way is to surround yourself with individuals that speak the desired anf if there are no individuals that you can find then you can watch Youtube videos that teach the language or Youtubers that speak that language 🎓🥇
Maya F.
Speak with a native person, use an app or watch videos on YouTube. Of course don't forget to watch movies in Original Version with English subtitles. And read a lot of books
Swetha A.
Well if I am honest I am not the best person to answer this question. But I must tell you my experience with learning a language. Unfortunately this particular language was a compulsory subject in school, I was good at writing but I was really bad when I read or spoke the language. Years went by and I was never confident enough to speak or stand in front of the classroom and read a paragraph. I never had the courage to speak to my classmates. Until I met my group of friends in college who were native speakers. Honestly it took me a year to pick it up. I gained confidence and I was able to not just speak but also read, in front of the whole classroom.
The lesson I learned here is – confidence matters. Speak to locals or better yet make friends with the locals. You may get teased, corrected, or – maybe if they are very rude – shamed. But never give up in your persuit to learn something new. Keep it positive.
Lia Y.
For speaking a language fluently,you must learn all the 4 skills.For listening and speaking ,you should listen to a song or watch movies more. Doing these will improve your listening skill.For reading and writing,you can learn them from reading news,novels or manga/comics.But when you're speaking,you must not be afraid of making mistakes and have more confident.
Freya N.
I find that a good way I lean languages is by Duolingo as there are lots of languages to learn from and it creates courses made for your learning. Another tip is to try and watch movies in the language you want to learn with English subtitles and when trying to learn word try and use them in everyday life
