Step 1: Get A Basic Understanding
Maybe you already have a base vocabulary of the language that you want to learn. You might have picked it up at school, but we all know that after language education at school where not everyone is very motivated most of us end up with just that. A basic understanding. If you don't know anything about the foreign language you want to learn, get yourself any second hand coursebook from which you can pick up the highest frequency words and some basic grammatical lessons. Or see if there is a Blog article on our website already that might give you this information.
Step 2: Start To Read and Listen
Once you have a basic vocabulary and a grasp of what the grammar can do with the words (change verbs and nouns), you can start reading our e-books. Start with the fairytales e-book in your language. Because of the correct pop-up translation that has been manually added you can continue reading with ease, and will pick up lots of new words. Any words you have difficulty with will be stored for later practice. Once you finished an e-book and if there are any others, read those as well. Listen to the audio as well, if there is any.
Step 3: Reread until you're Fluent at Reading
Reread our e-books until you don't have to look up any unknown words. This means that you mastered up to 6000 new words, depending on which products you read. This will enable you to read any paper or electronic book in that language as well. If there's audio added, listen and relisten until you comprehend the whole story just by audio. This will give you strong listening skills, which helps when watching movies or listening to speakers in that foreign language. Read lots of books in the foreign language that you're learning, this will give you passive fluency and a huge vocabulary to use actively.
Step 4: Practice Writing and Speaking
Start writing stories about different subjects, and practice your speaking language. Because of the fact that you're now fluent at reading books in that foreign language you have a huge passive vocabulary ready for use, but you have to put it to use. Join a language group in your neighborhood or find a site where you can practice while chatting. Or write short stories with a lot of conversation in them and have them checked by someone who knows the language.
Step 5: Do A Test
If you really want to know what your level of fluency is try to pass a B2 or C1 or C2 test in your foreign language. This also helps if you want an accreditation for a job or a university.
