Learning to Speak a Second Language


File Size: 731 Kb

Description
You have just arrived in another country and want to study the local language. There are a number of language schools promising that they will teach you to speak fluently. While telling you they will teach you to speak, they will actually teach you to read, to write, and to memorize grammar rules, but they will largely fail to retrain your tongue to speak the local language.

Or you may be in an area where there is little formal language study available. You may find a tutor or a small school that will claim to teach you the language. Again, however, the language instruction will likely do little to retrain your tongue to actually speak that new language.

In either case, you face the same obstacle. On the one hand, there are prestigious institutions that will expose you to current methods and enriched cultural life, but they will fail to provide the necessary retraining so that you can rapidly learn to speak fluently. On the other hand, there are inadequately prepared schools trying to teach their language courses without understanding what learning to speak a second language entails.
