Pathfinder posted a topic in Study Korean
Hello everyone, I am glad to share my second language learning experience with you. My mother tongue is Chinese, and like many people, my second is English. The third Spanish because of my interest. The second foreigner is required for exam-oriented education. I started to learn English in the third grade of elementary school. At that time, the teacher would memorize words and pronunciation, of course, it all started with very simple greetings. Most of the impressions are rote memorization, and more are recitations, such as words and articles. There are requirements for learning indicators and test scores in the classroom, so learning a second language is not easy. More importantly, there is no English environment in my school and class. Speak English only in the two English classes a week. At other times, I communicate with my family and friends in my mother tongue. As a result, there is not enough language environment, it is naturally very difficult to learn, for a nine-year-old child. In such a difficult language environment with stumbling and rote memorization, I studied English until I graduated from university. After fifteen years of foreign language test-oriented education, my English proficiency has probably reached the level of high school students in English-speaking countries. Now that I graduated from university, I am interested in Spain and other Latin American countries. I like Latin American football culture. I look forward to seeing my favorite players play on the spot one day. I look forward to learning this language by myself one day. If it takes 15 years to reach the intermediate level according to the way of learning English, I will be shocked. Later, by coincidence, I learned a learning method, and my sky was bright ever since. That is the second language acquisition hypothesis of the famous language educator Stephen Krashen. As the name suggests, this language acquisition hypothesis is to learn like a baby's mother tongue, rather than specifically learning a language like in a classroom. Because of this method, I came into contact with a language software on the recommendation of a friend. There are many authentic pronunciation videos of local people, and it is oriented to languages from all over the world. In it, you can learn any language you want to learn, such as KoreanChinese and Indonesian. Sincerely share with everyone：https://hibee.com/d/DqeLXVYN.ko?d=DqeLXVYN&u=RLq2eQYb There is no need to learn grammar specifically, let alone rote memorization, just go directly to the context to experience an audio-visual feast~ In this way, I gradually became more comfortable with the acquisition of Spanish. Because of this learning hypothesis and language software, I feel addicted to self-learning a language all my life. The positive feedback it gives me makes me feel very emotional, oh god, this is the feeling of heart! I hope everyone can enjoy the long river of language they like.
