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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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

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👌

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
