Learn to speak fluent Polish with Flowently
How can I learn the Polish language?
Flowently provides 7 simple tips for learning a new language.
1. Get real
Think of a simple situation in which you want to be able to speak a few words of Polish. Meet up with your Flowently tutor, learn ‘the magic phrases’ and how you can use them in everyday situations. Learn how to order your first drink, do your first shopping and make your first appointments in your new language with your tutor by your side. Learn by doing!
2. Make learning the language a lifestyle
Consistency is key! Find a language habit that you can follow, even when you are tired, sick or madly in love. Link the language to your lifestyle. Drink your coffee while reading a Polish newspaper. Listen to a Polish TV show while cooking and find more little habits. In this way you will feel way more comfortable and you can have fun too!
3. Play house with the language
The more you invite a foreign language into your daily life, the more your brain will consider it something useful and worth caring about. Use every opportunity to get exposed to the new language. Label objects in your house, watch children’s programs, invite people to speak to you in the language you want to learn and train your ears. Learn about funny expressions and humor.
4. Let technology help you
A small thing like resetting the language on your phone can help you learn new words straight away. The same goes for changing the language in your browser. Use your phone to learn a new language while making photos and recordings of words and situations you don’t understand. Bring them with you to your next Flowently sessions and your tutor will explain their uses to you. Being interested and active is guaranteed to help you.
5. Think about language learning as a gateway to new experiences
Learning a language is about focusing on the experiences that a new language brings along. Think of fun things you want to do and turn them into a language learning opportunity. Check out our variety of topics and let your private tutor be your personal guide.
6. Make new friends
Interacting in your new language is key – it will teach you to intuitively express your thoughts, instead of mentally translating each sentence before you speak. Find native speakers near you. Meet the locals and learn to interact in daily life situations. Improve your chit-chat!
7. Do not worry about making mistakes
One of the most common barriers in learning a new language is the fear of making mistakes. But native speakers are like doting parents: any attempt of you communicating in their language is objective proof that you are a gifted genius. They’ll appreciate your effort and even help you. Nervous about having a conversation with a peer? Try testing your language skills with someone a little younger. And, more imporantly, be patient with yourself.
Take a step back and try to communicate on a basic level when you start speaking a new language. Our friendly tutors are well-trained in the Flowently method and will help you feel comfortable in your new language. And don’t forget: an accent is charming!
