What’s the best way to learn a foreign language? At some point as a language learner that question is going to come up. And then the search begins for the best method.
Anyone with the slightest bit of experience learning languages knows It’s easy to find a company or person promising a secret method to take you to fluency.
We all have different personalities, learning styles, available time, preferences and resources. To think that a method exists to make everyone’s language learning dreams come true is laughable.
That’s why here here at Zero To Fluency we don’t have a method. Instead what we have are core principles that when internalised allow you to create an approach to language learning that’s best for you.
We call these principles The 11 Fluency Activators.
There’s a lot to be said about each fluency activator, so this article is merely an introduction.
We’ll go deeper into each one in upcoming articles here at Zero To Fluency.
Let’s jump right in!
Dr. Stephen Krashen is linguist behind the Input Hypothesis, which revolutionised our understanding of the way languages are learned. If you want to speak a foreign language well then you must become familiar with him and the hypothesis.
Almost everyone tries to learn a foreign language at some point in their lives, but sadly most fail.
In this interview with Dr. Krashen you’ll learn exactly why the grammar based approach to language learning fails to succeed and why an approach focused on reading and listening is what you need to reach fluency
At the time of writing this review I've been working with David to improve my spoken English for 3 months. Before starting to take lessons with David I tried taking lessons with 3 other teachers but I stopped because I found the conversations very boring. David always chooses interesting topics for each lesson and he pays close attention to all of my mistakes and writes them down. I don't just improve my spoken English when working with David. I also think about the world in a different way thanks to David's interesting questions. I really recommended working with David! I have made great progress with my spoken English during these 3 months and I'm sure I'm going to continue improving.
