Nowadays, learning languages is very important in order to succeed personal and professionally.
It does not matter if you were bad at languages at school, because everybody is able to learn a new language if they do it the right way and put effort into it.
If you really want to speak, read and write any language fluently, there are two things that you will really need:
– Willingness to work: Everything will depend on you. Therefore, you need the attitude to learn a new language.
– A clever method: You need to know which one is the best method for you to learn a language. Some people learn by using the visual methos while some others prefer auditory or kinesthetic.
Before starting your learning adventure, I would like to introduce you the story of someone passionate about languages:
Giuseppe Caspar Mezzofanti (1774-1849) was an Italian Cardinal and famed linguist. Mezzofanti was well known for being a hyperpoliglot who fluently spoke 38 languages. He never left Italy; however, he managed to learn how to speak every language without an accent. People from all over the world went to Italy to challenge him in their native languages. They all reported their amazement at this man’s fluency. The study of Mezzofanti is a 500 pages book by Charles William Russell published in 1863.
He could speak fluently Italian, Hebrew, Chinese, Greek, Persian, Spanish, Turkish, Dutch, and some others.
I hope you feel encouraged after this story, so you can start now with your language learning adventure. Remember, YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW.
