How long will it take me to learn a language?
Two points here:
1. What do you mean by “learn a language”? To get by in everyday situations, to speak it like a native, or to reach one of many different stages in between? There’s a huge range of possible levels of competence, and a huge range in the amount of time needed. Which one
do you hope to achieve?
2. People are different; some pick up a language faster than others. The ads which say you will be speaking your target language by studying ten minutes a day, watching a video clip or simply listening to your Ipod while you exercise overlook this fact.
A typical Euroasia language course covers a range of topics. Even in this short space of time you can make really significant progress. If you can find time in between lessons to go over material, expand your
vocabulary, listen to CDs, then you will undoubtedly make faster progress.
