Create a Foreign Language Audio Collection

Asterix et le Papyrus de CesarLearning a foreign language involves many things. Of them, audio is an important factor. Hearing your chosen language over and over helps you become accustomed to it, and learn to pronounce it better. When you enjoy listening, your development is improved. In your efforts to learn, try building yourself an extensive foreign language audio collection so that you always have something to which you can listen.

This does not mean audio learning accessories, though these are very, very useful. For the purposes of this collection, things you really enjoy hearing are best. Whatever type of music you enjoy, it probably exists in the language you want to learn. From rock, to jazz, to popular music, these all abound in other countries. Go hunting for recommended musical artists who sing in the language you’re learning, and start collecting.  Look for both authentic music, as well as original music that was written specifically to help language learners.

If you’re a reader, make a list of the literature you want to read and go find the audiobook version. You can listen to the audiobook even if you’re not quite advanced enough to comprehend. Hearing it helps you learn and you may understand more than you realize. Then, later, when you’ve learned more, you can revisit the literature and read it yourself.
