Celebrate 6 years of busuu!

busuu birthday, learn languages online, world largest language learning community

It’s busuu’s 6th birthday!

To celebrate 6 years of busuu, we are giving away a free Premium Membership to everyone who buys a Premium Membership before the 21st of May to share with a friend! Make the most of this amazing opportunity and share a language-learning gift with your family and friends.

Make the most of your language-learning

Here are 6 tips to help you improve your language studies:

1. Study every day

Try to set aside some time every day for your studies. It’s better to study for 30 minutes every day than for 3 hours once a week. This has to do with our brain’s learning curve: it’s better to keep refreshing knowledge, otherwise we’re less likely to remember it.

2. Watch TV and films in the language you’re learning

Watching TV is a great way to learn more vocabulary. You can often find internet sites that show programmes from all over the world. You could also watch foreign films with subtitles in your native language, or even in the language you’re learning.

3. Listen to music and the radio

Listening to native speakers on the radio is an excellent way to practice your listening skills. If you do not live in a country where they speak the language you’re learning, why not listen to an online radio station? There are 100s to choose from.

4. Have fun

Try to find other ways to make language learning fun. This could involve games, stories, tongue twisters, jokes and anything else you can think of. Why not sing along to your favourite foreign songs?

5. Don’t be afraid to speak

Don’t be ashamed to speak the language you’re learning and make some mistakes. The best way to learn a language is to speak and listen and get a feel for how the language sounds and is used. Practice with native speakers or other learners; the most important thing is that you give yourself an opportunity to use the language.

6. Learn about the culture

The absolute best way to learn a language is to surround yourself with it. Find out about the culture of the countries where the language is spoken, visit cultural centres or if you can, visit a country where they speak the language. There is loads of information available online, so even if you can’t travel you can find out a huge amount from the internet.
