Don’t ever learn two similar languages at once

One of my students, who loved Polish language her whole life, once decided to learn Czech. She was confronted with a problem that many words or grammar forms were quite similar, and she started confusing them, while speaking. She could not [...]

Don’t do exercises just for the sake of it

During our school years we didn't practice the best learning techniques. We just did whatever we were told to do and that was usually it. We rarely thought of enhancing our learning approach. As adults, though, we can choose which ways to pick. [...]

How many vocabulary words a day should you learn

Vocabulary learning is not an easy task. Remembering words depends greatly on how often and how many words you learn each time. Some people try to learn as many words as possible at once, and with regret they have to acknowledge that it is not as [...]

Taking a break in language learning

I often compare language skills with sports. You cannot learn something in a day. It's a skill which requires constant practice in order to achieve the desired results. I think consistency in learning is the main problem with everybody. Today [...]

How to deal with pronunciation mistakes

"I cannot pronounce it" say learners of a foreign language from time to time. Usually it means that they try to say it too quickly. Firstly, try to pronounce the word slowly, dividing it into syllables: "ma-ra-thon", "com-mu-ni-ca-tion", [...]
