7 Social Ways to Learn a Language

  1. 1. SOCIAL WAYS TO LEARN A LANGUAGE7
  2. 2. Don’t think language learning is a lonely process with dry textbooks and flashcards. It can be a very fun and social process if you know where to look!
  3. 3. COUCH SURFING1
  4. 4. Did you know that many “couch surfing” services have an advanced search option where you can find people who speak your target language to crash with? Practice while you travel (and do it on the cheap!)
  5. 5. INTERCAMBIO2
  6. 6. The best immersion environments are natural social hangouts. Cue Intercambio, a website that allows speakers of multiple languages to connect with each other.
  7. 7. A group of people get together to casually practice whichever language they are learning. Spanish speakers show up to speak English, whereas English speakers show up to speak Spanish, for example.
  8. 8. STUDY OR WORK ABROAD3
  9. 9. Force yourself to use your language by going abroad!
  10. 10. Almost every college or university has a study abroad program that will surround you with like-minded students who speak your target language.
  11. 11. Look for a job in your field overseas! Not having much luck? Get a foot in the door by teaching English or volunteering in another country.
  12. 12. Want to make a career of living overseas? Consider government service like the Peace Corps or the Foreign Service (and will provide language training!)
  13. 13. CULTURAL EVENTS4
  14. 14. Festivals and cultural events are a great way to immerse yourself. Even if it’s in your home country, it’s likely that local native speakers will be there to practice with!
  15. 15. To find events and festivals near you, check out your local library, connect with local business and organizations on social media, and consult area newspapers.
  16. 16. FILM EVENINGS5
  17. 17. Film EveningsJoin (or start) a foreign language film club! Schedule screenings at the local library or community center and invite learners and native speakers to watch and discuss.
  18. 18. CONVERSATION GROUP6
  19. 19. Join or start a conversation group. Advertise in your community at the library, local businesses, ethnic restaurants, the YMCA, and other local hubs.
  20. 20. The group can take many forms: a weekly supper club at a new restaurant, an outdoor adventure group that hikes or mountain bikes, or whatever draws a crowd. The only rule: use your target language!
  21. 21. ONE-ON-ONE LESSONS7
  22. 22. One-on-One Lessons Arrange one-on-one tutoring sessions with a native speaker to improve your conversation skills. If you can’t find a local or online tutoring service, you might be able to find a native speaker looking to learn English, and exchange your knowledge.
  23. 23. To make the most of your time in social settings, you’ll want to do some independent study. Build your vocabulary, practice your pronunciation, and brush up on grammar with Transparent Language Online! Sign up for free trial and explore all 100 languages offered.
