Although quite old, books are still great as sources of information on languages. The technicalities of grammar are best learned from a well-detailed book with explanations and examples. Books on grammar are found in schools, libraries and bookstores. Some of them are even offered as electronic books, thus making them even more portable than before. So the person can just download the book on his handheld device and study during his free time at school or at work.
Some people are auditory learners and retain information better when they hear them. Audio recordings in compact discs and MP3 downloads may be played when commuting or driving to work. At the beginner levels, the student will be asked to repeat phrases until he remembers how to use them. Later, he will be given questions which should be answered with a personally-composed response. These audio materials are also accompanied by printed study guides for more effective learning.
A passive way to learn language and culture is through watching movies. This way, the person learns how to apply certain phrases based on scenarios. He is also exposed to various settings in the movie. This method of learning the language is not just effective but also entertaining. Effectiveness is even increased if the movie has subtitles, which helps the student become more familiar with the words and retain them.
A pocket dictionary is also helpful for a learner who would like to communicate with locals, yet they do not possess enough language skills yet. This will be like their stash of weapons in case they would like to express themselves and do not know the right word. Also, some native speakers will mention certain words, which the learner will have to look up in the dictionary. It is great if the person spends on a Filipino-English dictionary. As he becomes a better speaker, he may need to invest in a more comprehensive dictionary.
Practicing the language by speaking with other students or with native speakers will also be greatly beneficial. These people should not judge the person for lapses and may also help in sharing references and experiences. Some groups have membership fee while others are free.
Hiring a tutor helps someone who want guidance on using the language. The teacher will be there to point out areas for improvement and also train the person with the proper accent. While also effective, this method of learning is the most expensive of all those mentioned.
Despite having different methods of learning, what is important is the person’s motivation to progress. The more time they spend studying a new language, the better they become, that they will barely notice that it has become their second nature.
