How to Learn Foreign Language

Hello my loves!
How are you? Hope you are doing great.
As you know, I'm Bosnian but I write my blog on English which basically means that I can speak English pretty good (not bragging at all haha) so I decide to help you if you want to learn foreign language. Maybe you need it for school, for your job or you just want to be able to speak on more languages.

I learn English and German besides Bosnian at my school.
But let me tell you something - I learned English more on my own than I learned from school and I'm just almost-15-year-old girl.



These are my tips for you :

  • LISTEN MUSIC ON THAT LANGUAGE! Let's be serious - this can help you a lot! You may be like ''Why I'm going to listen music which I don't understand?'' but just... Just do it! You know every language has its special accent and you can get more than 50%  of that accent you are always listening to. I'm a Directioner and I'm listening to One Direction since 2012, I think, for like 24h a day haha. That's the secret of my success at speaking and writing on English! Thank you, One Direction haha!

  • WATCH MOVIES ON THAT LANGUAGE! You don't have to turn off the translations on your language but also, listening to the language you want to learn in the movies is like hearing it in the real world because I'm pretty sure the most of the actors aren't worrying about the grammar so that can really help you a lot! That can be pretty messed up,too because my English teacher doesn't understand that people don't talk worrying about the grammar all the time, they omit word like ''the'', ''a'', ''that'' all the time.

  • USE MOBILE APPS. I'm just going to recommend you some of them : Duolingo, Babbel, Memrise, AnkiApp and Busuu. I mean, why not use the Internet in good purpose? Wooow, I'm starting to sound like one or my teachers and I really don't want that...


    So people! That was all for today!
    I have written a post on how I get ready for competitions but I don't really know if you want to read it because I don't always get good results on my competitions but... You know, if you want to read it, be sure to let me know down bellow! 
Bye,V

  1. I completely agree with listening to music and watching movies part! It helps A LOT! I learned the most of English from watching tv shows in English and I seriously know more phrases in English than I do in my native language, haha. Also, Doulingo is a great app fro learning a foreign language :)

  2. Odlični saveti, potpuno se slažem. Ja sam engleski učila samo u školi i sama i znam ga bolje od mnogih koji su pohađali kurseve i škole jezika. :)

  3. I don't think school helps that much. I know Polish and English fully and currently learning Spanish but I must say just a couple of lessons at school are never enough. The best way to learn the language would be to move to the actual country that uses the language your learning because then your in contact with it all the time. Anyway, great blog post! Have a lovely day :)

    1. I agree with you but not all of us have a chance to visit the actual country so I didn't want to include that. Thank you! :)

  5. When I was 15, my English was far from yours. However, my English base was from The Sims series. Playing games is highly recommended, for language studying purpose of course! :'D

  10. Odlican post! Slazem se sa tvojim savjetima,slusanje muzike i gledanje filmova stvarno moze pomoci :) Ja sam kao manja uvijek gledala americke serije tipa "Puna kuca" pa sam tako uspjela da naucim engleski,a to je bilo nekad sa mojih 7-8 godina :) (nemoj misliti da se hvalim,samo zelim da kazem da se jezik moze lako nauciti ako se provodi puno vremena slusajuci ga)

  11. I agree music really helps. It's easier to learn meaning of something you love than something you're forced to :D
    Enjoy your German ;)

  14. Učenje jezika je nešto što traje cijeli život, čak i svoj materinski jezik stalno usavršavamo time što razvijemo svoj vokabular i izričaj. Vidim da imaš dobar stav prema učenju stranoga jezika, većina ljudi griješi kada misle da netko drugi (škola, tečaj ili slično) treba učiti i nekako to obaviti za njih dok je istina da zapravo svi moramo pronaći svoje načine učenja (iako nam dobar profesor može dati odlične temelje na kojima možemo graditi). Gramatika je važna, ali naravno ne treba je učiti napamet već uvijek uz primjere.

  26. Really great tips! I took 6 years of French at school and personally I find that watching movies really helped the most. In class, my teacher would have us read plays and novels, which helped grammatically but didn't provide a great sense of how the culture was like. Music helps too, but it can be difficult to understand too haha
    I'm jealous that you know so many languages! That would come in so handy when you travel and meet new people

    1. Aw thank you so much! Woow seems like a really great experience but school is only showing us what is in the books, unfortunately, the real world isn't like that and people create their own way of speaking their first language so travelling can also help a lot in this case. Thanks again! xoxo

  27. Some amazing tips Vildana!
    I learned Spanish in school, but keep it fresh in my mind by watching Spanish series on tv. It's always great to know more than one language!
