Why in the language environment it is easier to study language?

are presented at education market a set of various language course Now. One courses are calculated on 4 - 5 summer studying of language, others suggest to be trained in English in one month. How many time it is actually necessary to learn not read and write in language, but also to hear, think and to speak fluently?

All know that most quicker it is possible to learn a foreign language if to be in the language environment. For example, it is easier to learn Spanish in Spain. Present. You turn on the TV and hear the Spanish speech, you go down the street and hear how people speak Spanish, in shop all inscriptions in Spanish. You are simply surrounded with Spanish: it everywhere, around you.

In the beginning, trying to translate some words from Russian into Spanish, you will reflect some time. But you learn to speak already soon, you will think at the same time not in Russian, and in Spanish. How so occurs? To understand how in general the person learns foreign languages, let`s consider one life situation which in the history there is a lot of.

You, probably, heard similar stories when after ship-wrecks the survived people got on the island lived by any tribe. At a favorable outcome these people came into contact with this tribe and began to live with it together if there was no opportunity to departure from the island.

Naturally, the main obstacle which people at building relations faced - misunderstanding. People simply - naprosto could not understand what is told by islanders, and those, in turn, did not understand them. And quite often it led to different conflicts since tribes, as well as at any social group, have rules and laws, breaking which, people could be killed.

In this regard before people there was a need for studying of a modern language. And after the short period of time people could not only understand the speech of islanders, but also speak with them.

How it is possible? It is improbable that these people had with themselves a dictionary with the translation of words from language of islanders. About any textbooks and the speech also could not be. And nevertheless people learned language. How they managed it? Desire to survive? Magic? It is unlikely Actually all is simple


We will review an example. One islander asks the person to bring waters in the bucket which is cut down from a tree. Naturally, the person will not understand that want from him. Then the islander a beret a bucket in a hand also says its name. Later, the islander points to water in other buckets and says its name. In the head of the person it is fixed so: water as liquid (concept) - water (the word in the native language of the person) - water (the word in language of islanders). Water as liquid in this case is a concept.

That is when the person wants to ask waters, in his head there will be approximately following: a concept (water) - water (the word in the native language) - water (in language of islanders). At the translation of the word from the native language on language of islanders, people reflects for some time.

But over time when the person constantly is in the language environment and uses various words, need of the translation disappears, and process takes such form: a concept (water) - water (in language of islanders). The person has no need to remember how water is said in his language any more. Now the person thinks concepts. In addition the person constantly hears the foreign speech, its various pronunciations, and learns quickly, to recognize words without problems. Therefore it is easier to learn language in the language environment to which it belongs.

But whether it means that it is impossible to learn a foreign language quickly not in the language environment?

Of course, no. Out of the language environment language can be learned rather quickly too.

It is possible if:

to communicate Much in the learned language.

to Listen to the speech of other people.

to Study grammar for correctly creation of offers. the Hard work over written exercises, unfortunately, will not help you to learn to speak

fluently on foreign. And an opportunity to learn a foreign language even without books confirms the example given above, similar to which in the history of mankind it is a lot of.
