Learn a Language in 15 Minutes a Day: Step-by-Step Demonstration
How to Learn a Language in 15 Minutes a Day – The Method Explained
Hello everyone! In this article, I will explain a method that allows you to learn a language by studying for just 15 minutes each day. Many people have expressed interest in seeing a sample of this method, so I will provide a demonstration of how it works.
To begin, it’s important to find the right materials. I recommend using Assimil, a French company that offers language learning books for over 60 different languages. These books are originally in French, so learning French first will give you access to a wide range of language resources.
Now, let’s embark on a 15-minute lesson. Before starting, gather all the necessary materials such as the book, a pencil for taking notes, audio with headphones or earphones, and a glass of water to stay hydrated. It’s also helpful to find a quiet, distraction-free environment. Avoid having a computer or cell phone nearby to minimize external distractions.
Begin the lesson by blind shadowing. Pretend that you have never seen the text before and try to speak along with the audio, even if it feels challenging. This step helps train your pronunciation and speaking skills.
Next, repeat the same exercise, but this time, read the English translation of the text as you speak along with the French audio. This allows you to get a global understanding of what you are saying.
Afterwards, shadow the French text while listening to the audio. Use your fingers to track the words as you speak. If you encounter unfamiliar or difficult words, glance at the English translation to ensure understanding.
Now, it’s time to review the text in detail. Read the French text, referencing the English translation and any accompanying notes. Take note of any grammar or vocabulary points that are challenging or unclear.
Once you’ve reviewed the text thoroughly, attempt blind shadowing again. This time, you should have a much better understanding of the lesson and be able to comprehend most of it.
At this point, you can choose to review previous lessons. It’s recommended to review older material before diving into new lessons, but you can adjust this based on your own learning needs.
With consistent practice, you can make significant progress in a short amount of time. Aim to complete one cycle of the Assimil book in approximately four months, and then continue reviewing and internalizing the material.
Remember, the key is to be systematic and diligent in your daily practice. Try to study at the same time and in the same place every day for maximum effectiveness. By following this method, you can teach yourself a language within a year.
So, are you ready to start your language learning journey? Grab your materials, find a quiet spot, and dedicate 15 minutes each day to immerse yourself in the language. Good luck!
