    Learning a language

    Well, many many years ago I embarked on learning a new language. BUT, when is it that I should tell myself to stop studying and move on? If I don't keep studying it, then surely I will get rusty and find myself back at the basics.

    I suppose anyone taking on a new language, you really need to consider how far you want to take it before getting involved. Learning a new language consumes about 3 hours of my time every week.

    Re: Learning a language

    i would love to learn Japanese but i know my self that i probably not find much use for it seeing i don't really go aboard.

    I did start to learn spanish at my school and even went on a trip to the south of spain. But seeing as it was a course at school we had to do a speaking exam and i don't know if i could have coped with that so i didn't following on.

    Japanese. But it's not which language you are learning as all languages will go rusty on you if you don't keep it up.

    Re: Learning a language

    I think the best way to learn a language is being in a place where they actually speak it.
    I learn a language for 13 hours a week on university level and I still royally suck ass at it.

    That's true. Because as an infant and adolescent, your mind as well as your body is still in a pre-mature stage (obviously). Thus, it has less "walls" to allow for children to just take in information.

    Think about it like this, trying to teach a teenager a new language is problematic. Why? Well, do they want to learn? Are they willing to work for it? Which language do they want to learn? Will they focus throughout their whole period of learning, or get bored. Teenagers and those older have opinions and thoughts and an already matured mind that doesn't allow for complete, "open" thinking.

    Why do you think monks train their children from an extremely young age? That is when they are most innocent, most un-biased, and most willing and open to learn new things.
