Using spaced repetition software such as Anki for learning vocabulary. After each session with Anki, you can see how far you got in the deck you have just reviewed.

A lot of language learners think it is difficult for anyone to acquire languages but it is just a social and cultural process and we are naturally predisposed to achieve it anyway. I've known a lot of polyglots who could fairly get by(and even write essays)after about 2 or 3 months in languages that they never heard a native speaker speak before- Fun fact: ...

I think that it is natural for your brain to remember a language that you learned and practiced more recently than one that you studied years ago and didn’t practice much in the meanwhile.

I had the same struggle when I was learning English. I did was using the language 24/7. I was thinking in my head in English. I changed language settings to English on my phone, laptop and anything that I could change. Also, I watched a lot of reality shows and tv shows to learn how people speak, and I repeated whatever phrases they said. Also, I was hanging ...

Vowels are always tricky to get the hang of. Especially Danish with its many vowels.. Perhaps 'Dus' as in 'have dus' and 'dys' from 'dysse'(doze)? Not a native speaker, so ask a Dane for advice. Perhaps one of the vowels only occurs in closed syllables, and vice versa, which might make it tricky to find a real minimal pair. As for [ø], it is the rounded ...

Sort of answering my own question here. Unless someone else posts, for the time being here is the best website I have found. It should be noted that I asked for a cheat sheet, whereas what I was looking for was a summary. The problem is I had rote learnt every single one of the tiempos verbales, even the irregular ones, but I never understood where or when ...

I own a cheatsheet like this in German: Zeiten auf einen Blick Spanisch by the German publisher PONS (ISBN 978-3-12-562829-8). It is the size of three A4 sheets folded together and laminated, so you get 6 A4 pages in total. The first page explains the use of use of the present tense (and the gerund, e.g. estoy hablando); the next page and a half explains ...

I see that you searched Google Scholar. I searched several other citation databases for scholarly publications, including Scopus and PsycINFO. I found 94 articles in the databases in response to a search based on the query: ( passiv* AND listen* AND language AND learn* ) To clarify what that query means, it searches for documents that include, anywhere ...

This is a big question. reading ability What is the language? It depends heavily on the language. I believe the way differs from one language to another. Generally, it's about learning how to read the written language, and how to pronounce what you read. I suggest you read newspapers and articles on the internet or books and e-books, for reading in English....
