How to learn a foreign language by yourself? Read!


There is one great method of learning a foreign language. No, it is neither a manual for self-tuition nor training programs - it's all by itself. The basis for self-study language - reading.

In school, reading in English or other target language does not play a special role - as a rule, attention, at best, paid to pronunciation. In universities, things become even worse - the more you do grammar exercises, the more well done, and there are few who are interested in reading.

And for the adult who reads texts and learns the language for himself, not "for the sake of a crust", learning English or any other will be much easier if he only starts to read books - beginning with the dictionary, and then just trying to understand a plot on their own.

Reading fiction in a foreign language will give you an excellent vocabulary, plus you will start to feel the literary language of the other country.

Reading educational texts, followed by working off speech constructions, makes it possible to put the pronunciation and speaking.

Reading of specialized texts gives, respectively, a specialized vocabulary.

The main thing - do not forget that is necessary not only read in the foreign language, but also to understand the nuances of pronunciation - otherwise what will turn out? There is a famous legend about how a great writer Kornei Chukovskyi learned English from books, and having arrived in London, was forced to hire a tutor - he could perfectly write, but couldn't say anything aloud...

So, it is better to start learning a language with the "live" classes with a tutor who can teach you how to read properly.

And the Internet or bookstore can help to choose what to read, - there are texts for the different levels of knowledge of the language, and even the adaptation of the classic books for beginning readers. But do not forget that it is very important not just to read in the foreign language, but to read interesting books and articles for you!

Reading in a foreign language must be paid attention not less than half an hour a day, but not on the principle of "read for half an hour", but on the basis of, for example, "be sure to read and understand the ten pages". When these same ten pages begin to fit in the range of, say, twenty minutes - try to read not ten pages, but fifteen. But remember -  is very important for you to understand everything that you read!

And remember: when you read aloud in a foreign language, you train speaking, getting used to construct sentences properly, and it is if not to mention pronunciation. A reading, in general, provides an excellent opportunity to improve vocabulary. Besides, it is fun. So, do not neglect such a great method of learning a foreign language, like reading! Even if you are constantly learning the language with a tutor, spend at least half an hour a day on a kind of a cross between entertainment with extra occupation - reading.
