What it feels like when you learn a new language πŸ€”πŸ˜―

Hey everyone, welcome to another post on What are you up to during the Lockdown??

Today’s post is something that we all go through sometime or the other: it’s what happens when you learn a new language.

While learning a new language can be fun and exciting, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Most of you must be learning a language like French, German, Spanish or even English and you know it’s challenges. In today’s post I’ll share some of my thoughts I had while learning a new language: Spanish and German.

I started learning Spanish in 2018 and I’ve learnt quite a bit by now and I’m loving it! Interestingly, Spanish was not the language I wanted to learn at the moment but it was the only one I could choose at the moment because my choice of language, French already had its classes full. While learning, I faced a lot of trouble in the beginning especially since I’d already missed a few years of it and the others already had their foundation hardened in Spanish. With the help of my teacher, I caught up quickly and managed to get a full score in reading, writing and listening in the final exam and only lost a mark in the speaking part because of the fluency. Since then, I’ve always enjoyed learning Spanish and am still continuing to learn. At some points it felt really hard and I thought of letting it go but I didn’t. I did it and I’ve now learnt a lot of Spanish.

Recently, I also started learning German and it’s really difficult but I’m doing it slowly bit by bit because learning a language may be difficult but it’s very rewarding!

In the end, I just want to say that if you’re learning a language and ever feel like giving up, remember that learning a language isn’t just learning a new set of words but is learning a wonderful piece of culture from a different country!

What languages have you learned lately and what thought did you have while learning?

Have a great day ahead and stay safe! Hope you enjoyed reading!

Bye!

    1. It is tough for me too but I take it up as a challenge and as some I want to learn instead of something I need to for school/college/a course etc. It’ll be super easy and fun if you enjoy learning it!! Let me know how it goes!

  1. Learning a modern language feels like living a new culture, while an old language feels like walking through the streets of history. “Nostalgic”, the soul would say !
    Learning just 3 viz. Latin, Greek, Sanskrit – old ones but I hope, should suffice to gauge a lot of new ones. At last, the completely different style – Chinese, for they are hieroglyphs – communication with articulated pictures seems more universally comprehensive, for the modern lettered style is actually an encryption of thoughts.

      1. Greek has a good influence on English. Although English “alphabet” is born out of “alpha” and “beta” letters of Greek, its “thesaurus” is not a descent of “dinosaurus”. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        Well, my memory cannot speak foreign languages, so I tally words and their etymologies. ‘Tis more of a studying than learning. As mentioned in my Listicle page, I consider, other than excavated fossils, “Language is the footprint of human evolution.”

      2. For example note the month September why named so ? “Octo”, we know means eighth, so that “Septe” refers to seven in Latin, for in Greek, the prefix we know is
        “hepta”, (after penta and hexa) not to mention the Sanskrit “sapta”, as in “saptah” (lit. week) or even in Hindi as “haftah” (lit. week) just like Greek “hepta”. How connected these three are, even with English and Hindi !

        1. Gracias Saania! Si, yo visto una pelΓ­cula: The Invisible Guest. (We watched it at school. Sometimes I also watch English shows in Spanish with English subtitles) Which movies do you suggest I should watch?
