How not to forget languages you have learned by Steve Kaufmann
Here is another good video from Steve that I found. It is about how not to forget the language you have learned or even your native language. This serious matter is happening to me. I was on phone a few days ago with a high school teacher. He surprisingly told me that my accent has changed. I personally do not realize my accent. Living far away from home has made me speaking in foreign languages every day. However, it does not mean that I am forgetting my language.
As what Steve has mentioned, getting massive input of the language helps to maintain the level. I always read, watch, and listen to songs, movie, TV shows, news, etc. The key is to keep using the language. You can also find materials that match your interest. For instance, I always choose news articles about technology or sport. I will not only get the latest information about them but also practice the language at the same time.
Steve also mentioned that those who expect too much would end up frustrated. Language learning needs to be done without any stress. Memorizing is 100% not recommended. It gives pressure to the brain, which will make you forget what you have memorized after a few days. Instead, you need to find a learning method that is suitable for you because everybody learns differently.
What do you do in order not to forget that language you have learned? And what do you think about Steve Kaufmann's method? Thanks for reading. Feel free to share this article if you like.
