     Avoid generic language courses. Instead, check

    out free language-learning tools online. Duolingo is

    one of Lewis’s favourites, as well as italiki, an

    online site that connects you with native speakers

    for personal language lessons. It’s important that

    beginners to receive personalised feedback.

    Source: www.businessinsider.com.au. How To Learn A Foreign

    Language In 3 Months. March 17, 2014.

    HOW TO QUICKLY LEARN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE!

    Benny Lewis speaks

    six languages fluently

    and is the author of

    “Fluent in 3 Months:

    How Anyone at Any

    Age Can Learn to

    Speak Any Language

    from Anywhere in the

    World.” He believes

    — strongly — that

    with the correct approach and enough practice, anyone can master a

    foreign language in as little as three months. Here are some of his best

    tips:

     Speak the language out loud from day one. Beginners should-

    n’t be afraid of mispronouncing things or sounding unpolished.

    It’s most important that they start practicing — aloud — right

    away.

     Learn practical phrases first. New language learners should aim

    for phrases like “bathroom where?” that will help them com-

    municate about basic needs. “That’s not very eloquent, but it’s

    totally understandable,” Lewis notes.

     Forget about learning strict grammar. As part of getting basic

    vocabulary and phrases down, Lewis says people shouldn’t wor-

    ry too much initially about learning the rules of grammar. Those

    can be filled in later.

     Practice by Skyping with a native speaker. One of today’s best

    language learning tools, Lewis says, is the Internet — specifical-

    ly video chats like Skype. Using these free services, an English

    speaker in New York can easily get free or cheap conversational

    lessons from a native speaker of another language elsewhere in

    the world.

     Listen to local radio stations. Another option for immersing

    yourself in a foreign language is to stream radio from a country

    that speaks it. To do this, Lewis recommends checking

    out TuneIn, an online repository of radio stations from around

    the world.
