Learning a new language can be a challenge. It discourages people when they spend so much time practicing vocabulary to not be able to string together a simple sentence. For people that travel to other countries often, it’s useful to know a little of the language so communication is easier and there is less left up to interpretation. Eager to find the new best way to help learn a language, people will spend hours on the internet hoping there is some secret to learning languages no one is releasing. The true secret is repetition and to go for it. Speak the language even when you only know a few words; speaking in the language everyday will help reinforce it and make the words stick in your brain.
