What is the quickest way to learn a language?

The Museum of Knowledge is often asked with the array of language learning options available, what is the best way to learn a language as quickly as possible.

The Museum of Knowledge also attests that to learn a language, you need to interact with native language speakers. You will need to spend some time memorizing words and grammar in order that you can communicate to a high standard. You will also need to then have the confidence to go out there and put into practice what you have learnt in theory. Talk to native speakers and do not be afraid of making mistakes. Find a friend or someone you know who is willing to teach you. Alternatively, you can learn through forums and language learning programmes online.




If a person is fluent in many languages, which language do they use?

The Museum of Knowledge is often asked what happens in cases whereby a linguist is fluent in several languages? Does this linguist think in their Mother tongue? What is the main language a multiple fluent linguist thinks in instinctively?

Usually it is the language a person is native in but in many cases linguists think in the language they speak at that time. For example the team at Museum of Knowledge is multilingual. If we speak in Spanish then we are thinking in that language too. Sometimes linguists of several languages speak in the language of the place they are currently residing. For instance, if a person’s native language is English but that person has lived in Italy for years with no or little interaction with his/ her native language whatsoever; there is a high possibility that the person’s thought processes will be in Italian.

For linguists at the Museum of Knowledge as we are always switching between several languages and we are been speaking several languages all our lives, it is no problem for our minds to adjust to French, Spanish or Italian and just not think about it!


What are the Benefits of Learning Spanish?

The Museum of Knowledge team, experts in Modern Language Learning for Business, is often asked what are the benefits of learning Spanish for business? Spanish may be the best choice as a secondary language because of its growing importance in commerce across Latin America and Spain. Spanish is phonetic; therefore, it is an accessible language with words easier to pronounce compared with other languages. In Spanish, what you read on paper is pretty much what you pronounce.

There is also a huge demand for Spanish speakers particularly in hospitality, construction, management and multimedia businesses. Large corporations are realizing the increased importance of Spanish as a business language. To date, Spanish is spoken in 20 countries and 44 countries have at least 3 million Spanish speakers.
