Beginning learning a new language can be overwhelming at times. But it does not have to be like that.
Your goal should be to get enough knowledge and skills in the new language to be able to form sentences, questions and answers in your mind.
That’s true because, obviously, unless you can form sentences first in your own mind, you can not create those sentences in your mouth and say them out loud.
So everything starts in your mind and, as you practice every day, your mind and the various muscles and other parts of your mouth and throat will begin to work together. This will happen slowly and carefully at the beginning.
And that’s fine.
This is how it should be. It’s like riding a bicycle. When we learned to ride a bike for the first time, we certainly did not start at full speed.
So, the best approach, and one that I continue to use while practicing every day to master Spanish and French, is to work not with complete sentences but with smaller sentences and parts of sentences.
With this approach, the learning process is more manageable. Words and phrases are the basic components of sentences.
Houses and buildings are not built in an instant. They are built brick by brick, section by section.
Learning a language does not have to be different.
