With today’s language learning courses you don’t need to go to a school, sign up for classes and then keep to the teacher’s schedule or any of the awkward and time-consuming requirements of traditional education. You download the materials and can easily carry them around with you on your laptop computer, iPod or CD player. When and where you study your language lessons is completely up to you.
But you do need to make some time to study the lessons. Here are some tips on how to make that easier.
1. After you have downloaded the materials to your computer, make copies that will be portable so you can easily carry them with you wherever you go. An iPod or similar hand held audio visual device or a laptop computer are ideal for this. The necessary programs are just a few megabytes of data and don’t weigh anything! So they are easy to carry.
Then when you have spare time, commuting, traveling, or waiting anywhere, just plug in your earphone button Spanish Magazine and switch on! The interactive parts can be practiced while you are driving (if you are by yourself in the car or if your passengers don’t mind… they might even want to join in!) or any time you find yourself alone.
Waiting in your doctor’s office? Don’t read those old magazines, learn Spanish! Walking for exercise, practice your Spanish as you walk! Nothing good on TV? No problem, take a Spanish lesson. The opportunities are there, just be prepared and watch for them!
2. If you are going to be in any foreign country, I urge you to get a downloadable course in the language spoken there immediately and begin to learn and practice. Even if you can only practice on the plane going there! Just a few words can make a tremendous difference.
If you are going to be in Latin America, you can learn enough Spanish in a couple of hours to help you immeasureably. Little things like, “Que es eso?” (What is this? and point!) to find out the name of a thing or “DONday esTA” (Where is…?) can make life much easier for you.
You will find that the attitude of local people towards you changes greatly if you speak just a few words. They appreciate your trying, feel flattered that you are trying to learn their language, and will go out of their way to help you.
Also, going through language lessons while you are there in a country where it is spoken, will let you get immediate practice and application of what you are learning. It is easy to learn languages in the here and now, when you are using them. Much easier than it is in the abstract when you learn it and do not have any immediate application of what you have learned.
Also, you won’t be nearly as apt to procrastinate, because the immediate clear need for the language will press you to study and learn fast!
