Why don’t you learn some new language?  jenya column 3


Why don’t you learn some new language?
I will tell you some language learning advice today.

It is already spring, so fast. I was born in March, so spring is my favorite season. Somehow you get vigorous in spring and can do your best from now, right?
In Japan it is new school year from April. Doesn’t it make you want to learn something new?
Sports or getting new haircut, or learn something, spring is perfect for that!
Of course, I recommend you to study Russian.
Actually, from April NHK’s TV program “Russian on TV” is going renewal. And I am going to be there as one of regular members. Can’t wait for the broadcast.

For studying new language, one needs an occasion or chance. And also, strong motivation. “Why do you want to remember it?”
In my case, it was “Sailor Moon”. I was impressed by the sound of words I never heard before. and I thought “I want to speak like this someday”. Yes, you need to connect your study with your favorite things and have fun studying. It can be movie or music or any other cultural aspect. Of course, communication is important too! Now in this net world, it is easy to make online friends too.
And also, you would need a patience. You won’t learn a language in few months. It is scary. But that is why it is so exciting and challenging! After you achieve it, the sensation is great. May be, now you can use only simple words, but believe in yourself. You can do it.
And, also an advice from foreign language voice actress as myself - perfect your pronunciation. It helps you communicate even more than perfect grammar. Perfect it once and it will stay with you all the time. If you have some sounds that won’t come right, listen to movie or music and copy them.
Speaking many languages makes your life more rich, and helps you to get more jobs too. Also, as you get to know more and more, achievement feeling is priceless. It is not only about language, but any thing - the more you study it, the more is ahead you.  It doesn’t matter how old are you to begin to study. I am rooting for you! ^^
