Today on the Let’s Reach Success podcast I’ll cover 6 techniques for learning a new language faster.
I love the variety of my podcast. It really is to get advice and inspiration out there on anything related to personal, spiritual and business growth.
Last weak it was about the mindset of a pro mma fighter, before that about youtube and why it’s great for you, your brand and business to be on it and do videos, and the episode before that was on the obstacles to becoming self-employed.
Now it’s something completely different – how to learn a new language. But it always amazes me how all these are connected. Life lessons and life hacking everywhere we look, only if we are ready for success in all areas of life, of course.
Alright, So I’m choosing language learning because it’s a topic near and dear to my heart, but something I haven’t worked on for some years. Now, I’ve set the goal to learn the language of the country I recently moved in, which is also my dream destination. That’s the Netherlands and so it’s time for me to learn dutch. Not because I have to, though, but because I want to.
Luckily, I’ve got the foundation as I know English and German, so most of the things In dutch are a combination of these two. It’s not unfamiliar to me at all and my brain won’t have a hard time learning it.
But there are some pretty smart ways and techniques that experts have found that can save us a ton of time and trouble. Most people don’t even give learning a second language a try because they are intimidated by how much effort it might take. But not if we hack the process.
So now I wanna explore some science-backed advice related to how our brain and memory work, so that we can make learning a new language super easy, and quite pleasant. And to also see progress soon as there’s no better motivation to keep it up.
