Learning a New Language: 7 Best Mindset You Should Have

Learning a new language can be so stressful and hard at the start. We really need to put up a great work, time, energy, patience, effort, dedication, self-belief and be determined, because this languages aren’t our native language. Mindset has a very important role to play in learning a new language because we can’t do anything if we don’t have the mindset that are positive toward a particular thing, then we shouldn’t even try going there at all because we can’t make much impart since it’s against our mind.

The following are 7 mindset you should have when learning a new language. This mindset will help you in learning fast and efficiently.

1. I Can Do It

In everything we do, it’s necessary to have the mindset that tells us we can do it. This is a great source of power we need to implant in ourselves. There are times when we will think all odds are against us because we couldn’t manage our time, couldn’t get more resources to learn, we aren’t encouraged by our family and friends. This is one of the important reason why we should develop this kind of mindset.

2. Accept That Learning a New Language Takes Time

Some of us are so hooked up with the fact that we haven’t learnt so much and this has been distracting us from learning in full. I’m telling you today that learning a new language takes time and it’s important to know that.

Language learning takes time people have proven that it is possible to become fluent in a new language in as little as 3 months, but doing so always takes a real concentrated effort. If you really want to or must learn a new language in a very short timeframe, you must be willing to breathe, eat and sleep the new language in order to accomplish your goal.

3. Surround Yourself With Your New Language

Listen to and use your new language at every opportunity. Every time you have the chance, engage in conversations using your target language. Arrange to be in regular contact with people that speak the language fluently and who will be happy to help you.

And if you are not in a position to surround yourself with people who speak your target language (by studying abroad, for example) find a good language school and make sure there is plenty of opportunity to practice speaking the language. You could also make use of the Internet to find foreign language speakers who are willing to help practice your target foreign language.

4. Always Keep in Mind Why You Want to Learn the New Language

Will understanding your new language help you in your job? Will it allow you to enjoy yourself more when you travel to different countries? Will it help you better understand your ancestral culture? Do you have friends or relatives that speak the language? Was it your parents’ or grandparents’ native tongue?

It is important to be very specific as to why you want to learn the new foreign language and constantly remind yourself why learning the language is important to you.

5. Make a Firm Commitment to Learning The Language

Always remember that other people have learned new languages and so can you. Often the largest single barrier to success is the fear that you will not fail. The tip here is to stop asking yourself if you can really do this. Accept the fact that you are a capable, intelligent individual and you are going to learn a new language. Period. Let’s face it, if your life depended on it, you would have no excuses and you would master the language in no time.

6. Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously when Studying a Foreign Language

Anyone learning a new language is bound to make lots of mistakes. At times you may feel foolish or even believe that you appear childlike to those who are native speakers. However, understand that, in most cases, these people want to help you. To accept their help, though, you must learn to laugh at your mistakes not take yourself too seriously.

Agreed, it’s sometimes easier said than done, but try not to be shy of making a fool of yourself.

7. Get to Love and Understand the People, History & Culture

Don’t just try to learn the language, but also aim to learn about the people, the history and the culture of your target language. This may be one of the most important mindset tips of all. For instance, if you are learning Cantonese Chinese in Hong Kong, doesn’t it make sense to learn about the Hong Kong Chinese people and to understand their history and their culture? When you do, it will create within you an even bigger desire to learn the language.

Final Thought

Finally, I want you to know that you can do it. A lot of people are doing, this shows that it is possible that you too can do it. Even if you are not a native, you can still learn and speak like a native. Remember, it’s the mindset you have that matters. Practice the above mindset and see yourself soaring higher in the language field.
