Top Ten Secrets of Learning a Foreign Language: Tip #3

Tip #3 of Learning a Foreign Language:

Repetition (Do I really have to?) – According to the experts, in order for new foreign language words to cement themselves into your long-term memory, they must be repeated around 50 times in a meaningful way. Some courses tout “no repetition” – it’s a great thought, but words simply can’t get into your long-term memory without repetition. This presents a problem because you don’t want a repetitive, boring and tedious course to teach you; however, you do have to repeat words enough so they can have a chance to lodge themselves into your memory for later recall. The answer to this dilemma is simple. What you need is a way to repeat words and concepts in a fun way without realizing that you are repeating them. If your foreign language course doesn’t do that, you may experience “language-learning burnout” and never accomplish your goal. You should look for a course that repeats words in a meaningful way but also keeps your attention and is fun. This will help you successfully reach your goal of learning a foreign language.

Take Care my friends – we’ll see you back next week for Tip #4!

    Hi. I have been looking for a study that proves this is the case. It is my belief, but I have no proof that pronunciation is fossilized when initially learned incorrectly. I am particularly interested in the long-term effects of teaching a child the incorrect pronunciation. If you have a source for this information I would appreciate it. Thank you.

    totalmente de acuerdo, salvo por una cuestión. Porque se esfuerza tanta gente en aprender inglés, y tan poca en aprender en Español? La cuestión es si alguien leerá estas palabras de la mejor agencia seo española. Lo ponemos en duda…
