There are all sorts of ways in which you can set about learning a new language, but which is the most effective? Many audio languagecourses purport to have you speaking any language fluently in no time at all. Can it really be so easy? Well, in most cases the answer is no, though they can be a useful means of practising what you already know of a language and helping to improve your vocabulary.
Others believe that total immersion in the language is the only way to really learn. That too has its place, but it’s a method which isn’t available to every learner unless they are going to live in a Spanish-speaking country. No matter which additional learning and practice methods you adopt, you need a good, strong foundation in the form of real tuition.
The traditional learning environment is, of course, the classroom, but working with a private tutor is much more effective. Why? Well, there are numerous advantages to this way of learning. First, you can go at your own pace. In the classroom the pace is often set by the slower learners in the group; if you’re an eager and quick learner with a good ear for languages, you could find this limiting and frustrating.
Secondly, instead of having to cater for a group with mixed abilities and learning objectives, your private tutor can tailor lessons to suit just one person: you. Last but not least, a private tutor is able to give one-to-one coaching and can answer your questions immediately. This means you get maximum benefit from the time you spend with them.
