Language learning is serious business. If you want to learn a new language, then you have to make up your mind and be ready to see it through. Attitude is the key to your success or failure in your quest for a new language. Be sure to start when and only when you are ready.
STEP #2: CHOOSE A LANGUAGE
You will surely want to be careful here when choosing a language to learn. Some people make the mistake of choosing a language just for the fun of it. You should by now know that learning a new language is serious business and this requires time. Unless you are the type to waste your time just for the fun of it, I suggest you take your time and in choosing the next foreign language you want to learn. Below are a few question that may guide you but the final decision remains yours:
- What do I want to use the language for?
- How long can I keep up learning the language?
- How related is the language to my first language?
- How can I easily get study material for the language?
The most important point is the reason you want to learn a new language. This reason should be motivating enough to keep you going even when you feel completely down.
