If you’ve just started to learn a new language, what should you do? Here are tips for beginner!

1. Find resources

This is why I recommended you to search for advices in previous post. From advices you can find useful sources:

YouTube videos in which people teach you free lessons.
Websites for exchange language: you can find native speakers to practice with. Ex: Italki, HelloTalk, Lingolobe

1. Study abroad

There are now many types of scholarships, such as private or public, for each type of scholarship that you can find on the internet. In order to apply for scholarship, you have to put a lot of efforts into improving your language to be chosen. Speaking the language of the country where you study will help you adjust to the new country and new people. English is now almost a common language in the world, usually if people speak English, they will use English to communicate with foreigners. It does not mean that if you study in a non-English speaking country, you do not need to learn their language.
