I would love to share my language learning experience with you, and hopefully, I could help you and inspire you to learn more languages. If you are interested in having an article from me, send me a message.
I began my language learning from a young age. I went to learn English at an English Learning Center before going to regular school. Thus, English is my first foreign language learned at school. The reason is very simple, English is a widely-used international language. Wherever people go, they will most likely speak English.
We have already known that, through Esperanto, we can make friends with foreigners because Esperanto is a true language of friendship. I live in Taoyuan city (桃園) which is located in northern Taiwan. Although the number of Esperantists in northern Taiwan is not many if compared with that in the southern part where the Esperanto movement is growing more vigorously, I still manage to make friends by Esperanto.
Learners learn languages in many different ways, such as attending language classes, playing games or listening to audio. Whatever the methods are, they usually cover four aspects of language learning: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Mastering only one or two of these is not enough because, in reality, we read, listen, speak, and write.
