It may have become clear to you again on your last vacation: A few chunks of a foreign language from the travel guide somehow got you through. But a nice conversation in the village tavern was beyond your reach.
Or have you noticed in your day-to-day work that you need a foreign language more often than you would like for conversations, programs, etc.? But you don't feel particularly confident in this language, have to delegate tasks or don't deliver the required results?
So it's high time to learn a new language. But how do you do that? There is always something different coming up, at the end of the day or on the weekend time is actually too precious and if you are honest, language lessons at school have never been fun.
With Linguajet's learning method this is no longer a problem. We give you four reasons to start learning a new language right away!
1. Knowledge of foreign languages has several advantages
There are so many advantages to mastering a foreign language that a separate article would be justified. We keep it short and present some advantages to you here as an example.
Foreign languages have become indispensable in professional life if you want to have a career.
Globalization forces all executives in Europe to speak at least English. Other foreign languages are also helpful, of course. This allows you not only to communicate worldwide, but also to read professional articles that have not appeared in your native language.
It also expands the range of countries in which you can work.
In private life
Of course, knowledge of foreign languages also has many advantages in your personal life. Films and books are often much better in the original language than in translation or dubbing.
Your choice of vacation options increases greatly if you speak languages other than English. You can leave the beaten tracks to explore your holiday country away from the usual tourist areas. This is the only way to get to know foreign cultures and people as they really are.
Who knows - maybe a new friendship or even a new love is waiting somewhere abroad, but unfortunately she doesn't speak English.
Once you have learned one language, the next one is much easier. If you want, you can lay the foundation for many more languages with the first language course.
That sounds all well and good for you, but you are not sure whether you can learn a new language at all, because it didn't work out so well at school? It doesn't matter and it's not your fault.
In fact, language learning methods are still outdated in most schools today and take no account of modern brain research findings.
2. There are new methods against your old fears
In school, learning is simply an obligation for most people. It's the same with language lessons. Many students don't know what to learn a foreign language for - apart from Spanish, perhaps. It's poison to every motivation.
Many adults still have negative memories of their school days with them and are therefore reluctant to book a language course and thus - albeit in a figurative sense -"go back to school".
Get rid of those memories. You are now learning voluntarily and above all you have a goal that you have chosen yourself. Be it a vacation or success in professional life: Unlike in school, you now know exactly what you are learning the new language for. And in the opinion of experts, this is extremely important for successful learning.
Modern methods such as Linguajet's are designed to combine language learning with positive emotions. You'll see: If you are motivated to learn a language, you will enjoy it and the first learning successes will soon follow.
Are you concerned about learning a language because the last language lesson was years or even decades ago? After all, one hears again and again that children learn most easily. Don't let that discourage you!
3. It's never too late to start
Age has only a very small influence on a person's ability to learn. Although children and young people up to about 17 years of age are generally better able to learn new things, a high level of motivation can compensate for these disadvantages into old age.
In general, it is helpful to have already learned foreign languages. The more languages you speak, the easier it is for you to learn a new language.
If you still feel that learning is difficult, it may be because you haven't had to learn anything really new for a long time. It may be a little harder to get started.
But don't worry: You can still learn a new language. With the right motivation and a learning method that focuses on the fun of learning through frequent learning success, it doesn't matter how old you are.
4. Linguajet's method works brain-friendly
Linguajet's language courses are structured according to the method of the famous motivation trainer Vera F. Birkenbihl. This means that they use learning techniques that can be called brain-friendly learning.
This means that the learner learns according to the functioning of the brain and does not have to follow methods that ignore the natural learning mechanisms.
Birkenbhil assumed that man originally learned by observing, comparing and finally imitating his environment. This means that learning methods and techniques that support the neurological mechanism of imitation are brain-friendly. This can also be applied to learning a language.
Such brain-friendly methods make learning much easier for most people. In this way, new knowledge is better absorbed and leads to more frequent learning successes. Which brings us back to the motivation that has proven to have a great influence on successful learning.
Many of the methods Linguajet offers are also intuitive and can run alongside, such as passive hearing. You quietly run a foreign-language text that you have edited in advance with a playback device in the background while you are doing your normal work.
This allows you to subconsciously learn the correct pronunciation of foreign words. However, methods that require active work can also be processed in short blocks. You can make the division according to your requirements.
Since the different steps of the Birkenbihl method are based on each other, it is even possible to learn a language only to the extent that you can understand it without problems. For example, if you only want to watch movies in their original version, that's enough.
If you want to master a language completely, simply go through the further steps.
The Birkenbihl method saves you a lot of time. Despite work, family and hobbies, you can still learn enough to shine with your foreign language skills on holiday and at work.
