4 Linguistic Immersion Routines To Practice Languages Without Leaving Home Mark1199. Many language students decided to travel abroad during the summer months to soak up the new language and its culture.
However, the global health situation has caused many people to decide not to travel yet, in fact, five out of ten Spaniards will not go on vacation this year. Aware of the richness of a linguistic immersion experience, the experts at Babbel, the reference app in language learning, have wanted to compile 4 simple alternatives that, far from being compared to the pleasure of traveling, are of great help to start thinking In other language.
Change the language of your devices
Although it may seem an insignificant gesture, the fact of changing the language of our devices that are part of daily life such as mobile, computer or tablet, is a great step. With this gesture, a path of contact with another language is opened almost without realizing it, since it will be present while other actions are carried out in which to focus attention. In addition, once the first days are overcome, it will hardly require any effort.
“Time for” at home
The key to the success of this exercise lies in the will and perseverance of the participants. In a circle of people where a native language already exists, forcing yourself to speak another language on a regular basis is an effort. However, if you don’t have the option of traveling or talking to someone from abroad, simply forcing yourself to brush up on your skills and listen to others is effective. To make it more enjoyable, you can assign a theme such as “time to cook in English” or “time for the walk in French”.
Mandatory: watch series daily
A classic in language learning is watching series in its original version, first with subtitles and, as it progresses, without them. This is a popular pastime all year round, and particularly during the holidays when you have more free time. So, for those who have not yet cheered up or are often “lazy” and end up seeing it in Spanish, why not cheer up now. And above all, why not be constant to expand your vocabulary, gain confidence and keep your level in tune.
Talk and exchange emails
Often we put more aside the written part when it comes to practicing other languages. However, to improve it is enough to have a contact who knows the language with which to have a conversation. There are many websites and communities on social networks where you can find other users in the same situation. A good idea is to encourage yourself to meet other people and exchange knowledge while testing the level and putting everything learned during the year into practice.
These are some of Babbel’s proposals, which in addition to its courses through the app, has just launched an immersive service of live classes with native teachers, Babbel Live. An alternative to learn accompanied in a pleasant way in the coming months and arrive in September with your homework done.
