What happens in the brain when you learn a language?

People who speak more than one language fluently have better memories and are more cognitively creative and mentally flexible than monolingual people.

It’s not only speaking a second language that can exercise the brain; the learning process is also beneficial.


Tips to learn a new language online (part3)

Here is the third installment of our blog series on language learning tips.

3. Practice language actively

Whenever possible, speak the language aloud rather than reciting it silently to yourself. In doing this you can gain confidence in you pronounciation and in your language skills. Say vocabulary words out loud e.g. while doing a busuu.com learning unit, you should listen to the vocabulary and then the key phrase (if you are a Premium Member) and repeat them as many times as is needed.

The same goes for the busuu.com dialogues. You can listen to them and reapeat them as many times as you need to. Pronunciation activities should be done orally and not just mentally. Transferring language from your mind to your mouth is a skill that requires a great deal of practice! So take advantage of the busuu.com learning material to start actively improving your language skills!

We hope to be of assistance for your language learning! If you need further help, take a look at part 1 and part 2 of our language learning tips.
