Okay, uh, first of all, I would surround myself in the language, the target language, that I wanted to learn. Uh, for example, I would watch a movie in that language, uh, which would help me keep motivated to learn vocabulary and phrases. Uh, you can watch TV, news reports, or radio reports. You know, anything so that you can hear the language regularly is really helpful, and keep motivated.

Uh, next, I would keep a situational notebook. Uh, for example, uh, in a restaurant, you use, uh, a certain phrase over and over again, and so if you can remember just one particular phrase in each setting, then you can immediately speak that language and have more confidence, and uh, you get more out of learning the language, I think.
