The Best 5 Tips to Learn a New Language Before Moving Abroad
Moving internationally is both exciting and daunting—especially if English isn't the primary language of the country you are moving to. If that’s the case, we highly recommend learning as much as possible before you move, so that you can be more confident and at ease. The teat at Affordable Quality Moving & Storage shared the best 5 tips to learn a new language before moving abroad.
1. Purchase a Translation Dictionary
The first tip we recommend you to do is purchase a translation dictionary. Although this sounds like an easy step, you’d be surprised how many people forget to buy one before moving internationally. When learning a new language, having a good translation dictionary will go a long way in helping you learn new words and phrases. We recommend you purchase two size dictionaries—a large one that will help you practice on your own, and a pocket size one that will be easy for you to carry on the go.
2. Take a Language Class
We recommend you take a language class because you will find it beneficial to take an in-person class where you can ask questions and practice. You may be able to take an individual course that offers the one-on-one attention you need, or you can take a class with a larger number of students where you can practice with other classmates.
3. Find a Language Partner
If you decide to take a language class, that is the perfect place to find a language partner. If you want to learn a language more efficiently, we recommend finding a partner who will guide you. A language partner should motivate you to learn and achieve more, and they should also be someone you don’t mind meeting a few times a week.
4. Dedicate Time to Learn Every Day
It takes time, practice, studying, and consistency to learn a new language. One of the best ways to learn a new language quickly is by setting time aside every day to practice and increase your language skills. We recommend you spend at least an hour a day to devoted to learning the new language.
5. Download Digital Language App
There are many useful applications that are great tools you can use when learning a new language. Popular applications include Memrise, LinguaLift, Duolingo, and Babbel. These applications offer instructions on multiple languages and they allow you to study whenever and wherever you’d like.
