Learning more than one language at the same time English A question most people ask me on my Blog and YouTube channel is the following: “Is it possible to learn more than one language at the same time, and if so, how should I go about doing it?” Well, the answer is yes, it is possible to learn more than one language at the same time. But, before I give tips and guidance on doing this, I want to share a few of my thoughts on this interesting topic. Until recently, I never felt the need to learn more than one language at a time. Now that I think about it, my strict “one language only” approach was mainly for three reasons: (1) I was never in a hurry to learn languages; (2) once I chose a language, I was so involved in the learning process that I had no desire to deal with others; and (3) learning only one language at a time gave me the opportunity to polish the ones I previously learned. 1. The modern world is obsessed with a “here-and-now” compulsion which is particularly harmful to language learning. 2. 3. The two students’ race 1.

The Linguist on Language - English The Way of The Linguist: A Language Learning Odyssey, 01. Introduction. Zhuangzi's Crooked Tree Huizi said to Zhuangzi, "This old tree is so crooked and rough that it is useless for lumber. In the same way, your teachings have no practical use." Zhuangzi replied, "This tree may be useless as lumber, but you could rest in the gentle shade of its big branches or admire its rustic character. Zhuangzi, the Taoist philosopher, is supposed to have lived in China over 2,300 years ago. His famous story about the crooked tree appeals to me for many reasons.

Such a tree has grown to a ripe old age by adapting itself to its environment. And so it is with people who follow their natures and pursue their own path to self-fulfillment. That is why we chose a crooked tree as the logo for our new language learning system called The LinguistTM.

Accueil - CIL How it Works - Language Learning with The Michel Thomas Method No books. No writing. No memorising. Just confidence – fast. The Michel Thomas Method works by breaking a language down into its component parts, enabling you to reconstruct a language for yourself – to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want. Because you learn the language in small steps, you can build it up yourself to produce ever more complicated sentences. This Method is 'in tune' with the way your brain works, so you assimilate it easily and don't forget it! Stress-free, All-Audio Learning Michel Thomas teaches you through your own language, so there's no stress, and no anxiety. With parallels to the way you learnt your own language, each language is learnt in 'real-time' conditions. A "Virtual" Classroom The classroom situation on the recording lets you learn with others. New Visual Learning To reinforce what you've learned, the Total and Perfect courses now also offer interactive exercises for your PC or Mac. Try the new visual learning: Stephen Fry Emma Thompson

ATTICA la librairie des langues – Tout pour apprendre et enseigner l'anglais, espagnol, The Linguist on Language | For people who love languages, or would but were discouraged... From intermediate to advanced level - General Study Advice and Discussion I would like to get advice and start discussion about how to get from intermediate to advanced level in Chinese. For me it feels like that getting to the intermediate stage is not that hard, but getting to advanced (then to fluency) is the hard part. I constantly feel that I'm not improving or progress to slowly. I'm doing a Chinese as a foreign language undergraduate degree so I'm a full-time Chinese language student. Still it doesn't seem to be enough. I found some interesting information online about how to get through the plateau and get to the advanced level.

Language Learning Tip: Using Parallel Texts Parallel Text Example From Sustaining A parallel text resource for learning another language is a book or text in which the target language and native language are presented side by side on the same page or screen. The side by side nature of the text makes for a robust learning resource for language learners and can be a good source of comprehensible input. How To Use Parallel Texts Parallel texts can be used in a number of ways depending on your level in the language. Beginning Language Learners As a beginner, you may want to read a paragraph in your native language first and then move over to read the same paragraph in the target language. Intermediate Language Learners Start with paragraph by paragraph and as your command of the language grows, begin to read bigger and bigger chunks at a time. Advanced Language Learners Other Ideas Parallel text can be a great way to get started reading target language literature written by native speakers of the language. Finding Parallel Texts
