Next Steps in Learning Languages

After the first step of Easiest Foreign Languages enabling you to read and pronounce thousands of foreign words similar to English, what should your next steps be?

For adult beginners, reading foreign languages is easiest.

Second Step: READING MORE. Because English and Easiest Languages share many words that look alike in print, the easiest ability for you to continue to develop will be reading more in foreign languages. You can read at your own pace, unlike being forced to keep up when trying to listen.

Reading foreign languages will be helpful if you travel. You will find that reading some Easiest Languages will help enable you to read your way around Europe, for example, because finding your way depends so much on reading, even more than speaking and listening.

Third Step: LISTENING. Listening to understand spoken foreign languages is more difficult than reading and will develop much more slowly, because the sounds of foreign languages differ greatly from English -- and foreigners seem to speak so fast. However, listening to instructional audio as a second step is a good way to begin learning to understand all those foreign sounds.

Fourth Step: SPEAKING. Speaking foreign languages is more difficult to learn than reading or listening. The pronunciation patterns are different than the ones you are used to in English. Even many of the foreign words spelled identically to English ones are pronounced differently.

Fifth Step: Writing. The most complex skill, writing will develop last, as it does in your native language.
