How to Learn a Language by Immersion

How to learn a language by immersion? If you are asking yourself this question, you are in the right place! I’m going to show you a simple step-by-step instruction that will help you do it. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Find a motivation to learn

It’s a very important step! Find a personal reason to study a specific language. Why do you want to learn it? What is your goal? This will help you learn and practice even if you won’t be motivated to do it.

Step 2: Get used to a language

Start learning a language – learn some basic words, phrases, grammar, pronunciation. Get used to its sound by listening to music, watching movies in your target language (with subtitles in your native language) and listening to native speakers. If you are learning a language with a non-Latin alphabet, of course start with learning its alphabet!

Step 3: Immerse yourself

Okay, now as you know all of these basic things, it’s time to immerse yourself! Don’t complain that you don’t have time to learn a new language, because total immersion means living through your target language instead of living through your mother tongue. What can you do?

Note down activities that involve using your native language and consider doing them in your target language. Some simple ideas: watching movies, listening to podcasts, reading articles, reading books, writing in a journal and interacting with other people (for example find a pen pal).

That’s it – three steps to learn a language by immersion. I’m pretty sure that if you follow this instruction, you will learn a new language very quickly. Keep in mind that you should practice a lot – at least 10 hours weekly! Good luck and have fun learning!
