How to Save Money When Learning
What is the best way to learn a new language without spending a fortune on it? Is there any way to do it? Of course! You can learn a foreign language even for free and I’m going to show you how. Here are three tips.
1. Use the Internet
There are dozens of free websites for language learners. You can simply Google “[your target language] free lessons” and you should find something useful. Use the Internet not only to find free lessons, but also to find language partners, to interact with native speakers, to listen to music, watch videos and to read articles, blogs or e-books written in your target language.
2. Language exchange
There are many people who want to learn a foreign language in exchange for their native language. It’s very simple – find a pen pal (you can use sites such as Polyglot Learn Language or Lang-8) and use Skype to communicate. A private tutor for free – how cool is that? The best idea is to learn at least some basics of your target language and then look for pen pals – it will be easier to communicate.
Traveling doesn’t have to be expensive (there are many cheap flights) and it’s the best way to practice your new language. If you move to a country in which your target language is spoken, you can learn it even in a few months!
The key is immersing yourself – speak at every opportunity, make friends, explore a new city. Don’t be scared of speaking!
That’s it – three simple tips on how to save money when learning a new language. Learning languages doesn’t have to be expensive – just put these tips to use. Good luck!
