Jainaba Jobarteh grew up in Gambian but moved to Madrid to pursue a career in medicine. Moving to another country can be difficult and language barriers are often a big issue. If you are planning to move or just want to learn a new language, keep the following points in mind.
Use It In Conversation
You need to speak the language you are trying to master as much as possible. If you know someone who speaks the language, ask them to speak it to you so you have a chance to hear it from someone else. You can also work on conversations with yourself.
Don’t Be Afraid To Sound Silly
Nobody instantly learns to speak a new language and anyone who has tried has messed it up. You need to practice and make mistakes so you can learn from them and get a better understanding of how to speak the language.
Make Flash Cards
You may remember using flashcard to learn spelling words in school and you can do the same to learn new words in a different language. You can make flashcards yourself and ask a friend to hold them up for you or you can just practice them yourself.
It can sometimes be difficult to master a new language, but the above points and suggestions can help you learn a new language faster. Jainaba Jobarteh had to learn a new language when she moved to Madrid but found it enjoyable.
