Helpful hints for language study:

  • Take risks. Use the new language even before you are comfortable with it.
  • Don't rely on your first language. Use the new language as exclusively as possible. 
  • Spend time outside of class with the language.
    • Speak the language as much as possible.
    • Read books in the language.
    • Listen to the language on the radio, podcasts, TV, etc.
    • Spend time with native speakers.
