      What if I told you it is possible to learn a language just by watching Netflix every day? Yes, it is an actual time. It is recommended to either watch a movie in the languages you are interested in learning or Watching a movie in English and having the subtitle be in a different language. Your brain will start to pick up the accents and certain words.

    2. 5. Your phone

      Yes, that’s right! Just doing something as simple as changing your phone language to the language of your choice will force your brain into survivor mode and it will start to correlate the new language to your first language as much as possible just as your brain would do if you lived in a foreign country.

    Learning a language shouldn't be seen as a chore or another class you have to deal with. It is might to connect you to the world and just by the small grace of being able to communicate with our neighbors around the world shouldn't be taken for granted. Have as much fun as you would like with your new language and find a narrative speaker to help you out at times.
