E41 - another approach to learn vocab

Jul 15, 2017

Jun 2, 2017

learn from and with a language learner!

The interview based series of my fluent podcast which I started on E11 goes on. The idea was to get out of my comfort zone and interview several language enthusiasts from all over the world over a longer period of time. I already could improve my speaking skills by conducting several interviews. Click here for full show notes.

On this episode, we talk about coming out from our comfort zone to improve in our language. We can improve ourselves even by listening to ourselves and spot the errors.

  • we dont' always realize how powerful we can be by just  listening to ourselves and spotting the errors
  • we often want to put the responsiblity to the teacher rather then just trying to learn by ourselves
  • other interesting language based things

Reading aloud or reading out loud will definitely improve your speech. It just takes some time. So be consistent and don't forget to check for the correct pronunciation in case you are unsure.

Speaking a foreign language is hard. Your tongue needs to learn new muscle movements. The more you practice the more fluent you will be able to speak. native spoken Podcasts with transcript could be of use as well.

Reading silently will not bring you these benefits. In this episode, I had a look at 2 of my previous published recordings. As far as I can tell, I could improve my reading and speaking skills

I try to mix up a song on a recording software called Audacity. I implement word chunks that I want to learn. The goal is being engaged with the words I want to learn. That way the vocab will stick better.

A good way to become better in your target language will probably be to find reading partners with whom you can discuss books together and therefore, get better in your target language.

Time will tell us If it works. And I will keep you posted.

In episode 20, I interview Piotr from Poland and he gives us lots of valuable language related learning tips.  He is very experienced in transcribing from videos or mp3 files. Transcribing can boost your target language to the next level.

In this episode you are going to learn about one of my vocab learning methods


1. Pick wisely a source from where you want to learn vocabulary

2. Download the mp3 file

3. Enjoy and listen to the audio material

4. While listening or at the second listen -> Put bookmarks at the position you want to learn the vocab / the phrase

5. Relisten the bookmarked sections

6. Be engaged and look up for the definitions etc. / speak the words out loud

7. Relisten / Relearn after a certain time has passed --> that allows you to retain the vocab forever. --> it will stick better
