It wouldn 8767 t surprise me, though, if the research showed that adults are better at learning languages the way that adults ordinarily go about acquiring a second language. That is by way of books, audio materials etc Methods of acquisition would differ with age I would guess. Not aware of research that makes this concrete however.
I totally put this article to post on my social media and bookmarked it. (I am aware how much that phrase sounds like a spam comment) but it 8767 s true. It 8767 s awesome to learn that someone else who thought they sucked at language and thought they just didn 8767 t have the talent for them is more multilingual. Thanks for the confidence boost and great resources!
To get this high-level practice, I’ve subscribed to newspapers on my Kindle that I try to read every day from various major news outlets around the world. Here are the top newspapers in Europe , South America and Asia. After reading up on various topics, I like to get an experienced professional (and ideally pedantic) teacher to grill me on the topic, to force me out of my comfort zone, and make sure I’m using precisely the right words , rather than simply making myself understood.
We know we "should" study grammar. We know we "should" set aside a time for language practice every day. We know we "should" memorize vocabulary.
Agreed! Another option is watching a show you already know with no subtitles at all. I eased myself into Spanish by watching 8775 Los Simpson 8776 , and since I knew the episode from memory, I could focus on hearing what they were saying. Then again enabling subtitles did help because European Spanish can be quite fast for beginner learners and it helped me see the words I was hearing.
The hacker mind-set is not confined to this software-hacker culture. There are people who apply the hacker attitude to other things, like electronics or music — actually, you can find it at the highest levels of any science or art. Software hackers recognize these kindred spirits elsewhere and may call them ‘hackers’ too — and some claim that the hacker nature is really independent of the particular medium the hacker works in. But in the rest of this document we will focus on the skills and attitudes of software hackers, and the traditions of the shared culture that originated the term ‘hacker’.
Absolutely! Both adults and kids have their own advantages. Adults need to be more pro-active, but can process things like grammar rules way better, and kids can absorb naturally quicker, since they don 8767 t have any other language to fall back on. Although whether that is inherent to being a kid, or a consequence of having 8775 no escape route 8776 could be up for debate.
If at all through this section, you get stuck on any terminology, feel free to look it up in our Dictionary of ROMhacking Terms !
But I 8767 ve seen kids learn remarkably quickly, even at the age of 6 starting a second language. I like it when ANYONE regardless of age learns a language 😉
As fun and productive as it can be to study portuguese on your own, the best way to get better at portuguese is to speak it, at least weekly, with a native speaker. But what if you don 8767 t live in a portuguese-speaking country, or have any portuguese-speaking friends? That might have been a problem, before the internet and StreetSmart Brazil came along.
