Thanks for this video.
I liked it so much!
Hi, there. Steve Kaufman here again with the seventh in my series of Secrets to successful Language Learning. I won’t review err... secrets one to six because I can’t remember them here right of the bad and I’ll jump right into the seventh. It’s maybe the most difficult thing for people to achieve, that is, take charge of your own language learning, become an independent language learner. I believe that only independent language learners are successful and converge themselves into fluent speakers of another language. There are millions of people who go to class and most of them don’t achieve success unless they take the learning out of the classroom and pursue the language, following some of the secrets, some of the methods that I’ve suggested in these series like spending enough time, on their own, outside the classroom, pursuing things of interest to them, listening and reading, errr.... interacting with the language in ways that they like, and developing the ability to notice, umm... make sure they have the right tools, errr... being patient with the learning. All these things that I’ve described in these series of videos are the attributes of an independent learner. You have to become independent. Errr... I hear people all the times saying, you know, “Why does this language... gg... go this way?”, “Is this right or is that right?”, Errr... “What does it mean?” I consider myself as an independent language, having learned eleven in our work in my cross language, I’ve never asked myself those questions. Either I have a translation handy or I can figure out by looking words up in the online dictionary, or I let it go. And I know that eventually this pattern or these words will start to make sense to me. Errr... If I want to look up, errr... something to do with grammar, it’s easy enough to do today. Errr... just by googling I can see verb tables or noun declention tables, errr.. in any language. I would, you now, to click, umm... I have a little grammar book that I get to live through in the different languages, but I don’t expect that any teacher has to teach it to me. I can access the language and learn from it and explore it on my own. And I don’t need structure. Errr... and that’s essentially how we structure at linkq. We do devide our content, our lessons into levels of dificulty but within each level of difficulty you’re free to explore whichever content’s right to your fancy. And err... some people have trouble with this sort of unstructured way of learning but that’s how people learn in real life. So, if you have already done so, I would invite you, errr... to come to linkq, linkq.com and explore what we have done, what we have created for the independent language learner and I look forward to meeting you there. So, thank you for listening to these series and good bye for now.
