  1. Everything gets easier when you're surrounded by native speakers of the language you're trying to learn. Also if you're in the country where everyone uses the language, you will make a much better progress than being somewhere else. That includes listening, reading and talking in that language all the time and surely that's the best way to improve in every aspect. I think reading and writing would go easier that way as well because you'll always be reading titles and advertisements in that language all around you.
  2. You can never learn a whole language, even your native language. So the answer to your question depends on how much you actually want to learn. If it's just basic, it would take you a couple of months. Also it depends on which method are you using for learning. If you're surrounded by native speakers, you will make a better progress in a shorter period of time. If you want to get more advanced, maybe it takes around a year or more.
  3. First of all, if you want to be really fluent in a foreign language, you can't leave the books aside. You must find a good book that will help you understand the basic concepts of the grammar, which includes constructions of the sentences, tenses, some basic rules etc. When you get to know it, then you can start to learn by communicating with other people, especially native speakers. It doesn't have to be strictly face to face, you can use lots of internet sites which can help you a lot as well. At least that's what I do when I want to learn a new foreign language.
  4. It depends on how much I'm using a foreign language. If i constanly use it, I start dreaming in that language too often and even think in that language. Anyway, it's an interesting topic and it's good to know that I'm not the only one!
  5. When I started learning foreign languages, I was too nervous while talking to native speakers, even through microphone and with people I will never actually see. I used to mix up all the words and sentences and sounded so weird that I almost gave up on learning and speaking. But now I have become much more confident and fluent and do not tense up that much anymore.
  6. I NEVER consider myself to be done, even in my native language. There is always so much left to learn, and I take it as a hobby and I'm always happy to find out something new and learn a word I heard of before, but never knew its meaning.
  7. For me it's definitely speaking. I'm a kind of person who learns grammar of a foreign language quickly as well as writing, but when it comes to speaking, everything gets so mixed up in my head and I can hardly speak.
  8. I started to learn German as a second language in the 4th grade, but I haven't been using it for a long time so I have forgotten almost all of it. Also I started learning Spanish at an early age but not officially in school. I was learning it by watching so many soap operas, but I got on a high level quickly and I was able to communicate with native Spanish speakers.
  9. It would definitely be much easier to communicate with the rest of the world and I'd like it to be like that. Maybe the only reason why I dislike it is that there wouldn't be so many diversities among us, other language brings also another culture and it's all related.
  10. Yes, definitely, but I mostly look up their lyrics' translation. I've been listening to some turkish songs recently and I really liked them, but I was a little disapointed by the translations.
  11. We never know where we will end up one day and what part of our knowledge might help us. Learning a new foreign language is surely not a bad idea. Even if we will never use the language we're learning, we'll make our brain cells grow and work better and faster.
