The best and most effective way to learn language, MOK Knowledge tips

Students often struggling to learn a language will undoubtedly want to know if these are better or more effective techniques to reaching their objectives. Is there a better way or a more effective way to learn a language they often ask? From language practitioners such as those at the Museum of Knowledge, we advise that yes there is a better way.

The best way to learn a language is for students to ensure they commit enough time and dedication to the process. Learning a language and perfecting those skills does not occur overnight and ensuring that the correct techniques are employed is essential. Language learners should not forget about the importance of grammar, syntax and spelling.

Embarking on structured, immersion language courses such as those offered by the Museum of Knowledge can be of great assistance as language competency is directly related to reading comprehension. This in itself can assist language learners considerably so that they can communicate with ease. Reading comprehension exercises offered at the Museum of Knowledge can assist language learners by also improving their writing, listening and speaking skills and it is therefore the reading modules offered at the Museum of Knowledge that our tutors suggest language learners undertake before embarking on other modules.

Other immersion techniques available and suggested by the Museum of Knowledge team include games, watching structured visual materials, listening to audio clips and speaking with others who speak the same language as the target language the student is learning.



Museum of Knowledge blog, which language to learn 23062017

If English is your native tongue, which foreign language should you learn?

Museum of Knowledge language tutees are often asked if there is a specific language they must learn if their native tongue is for example English. Maybe there is an easier language to learn or a quicker way to learn a language? Are there any short cuts? English natives who wish to learn a language other than English, may feel some languages are easier to learn than others. Alternatively an English-speaking language learner may prefer to choose an alternative language to learn that meets their social needs. If an English speaker travels regularly to a country for holidays or for business, they can of course decide to learn that language over and above any other consideration.

The question of which language to learn in terms of simplicity may be determined as Latin languages including Italian, French and Spanish however any language learner will need to commit the time and effort towards learning a language. If a potential language learner decides to draw up a shortlist, the best way a language learner can choose between one language and another is to make a choice according to how often and to what extent they are most likely to use the language as well as the purpose for the language use (business or social).

Museum of Knowledge tips: Essential skills language learners must have

Language learners often wonder if there is a specific technique they need to adopt in order to learn a language. Apart from some of the obvious skills required such as reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, a key determinant of a student’s success is dedication.

The more time a student can dedicate towards the process of language learning the more successful they will be. It is no different to other skills such as learning the piano. There are basic and fundamental grammatical considerations students need to perfect so that language learners are able to put into practice their language skills when they communicate in another language that is not their native tongue. However it goes without saying that a commitment to learn a language with structured lessons is one of the greatest avenues to success.

An openness and willingness to learn is also important so that techniques for language learners once be put into practice will enable students to reach ultimate success.
