How Technology Can Help You Master a Foreign Language

If you're trying to learn a new language but are struggling, using technology as a learning tool is a great option. If you aren't fully convinced, The Tutoring Center in Broken Arrow has some useful tips that can really help you out.

Change Your Language Settings

Changing the language settings on your electronic devices is a great way to get into the habit of practicing your language skills more often. It's likely you already know how to navigate your phone or tablet without much thinking, but changing the language settings to the language you're learning will expose you to new words every time you use your device. Don't stop at your devices, why not change the language settings on your social media accounts as well?

Connect With a Native Speaker

Programs like Skype allow you to make online phone calls for free anywhere in the world. While you may use it to connect to family and friends abroad, why not use it to connect with native speakers of the language you're learning? There are several websites that connect students looking to practice their language skills with native speakers. Think of it as a modern way of connecting with a pen pal. Before you get started, make sure you have your parent's permission.

Develop Language Skills During Car Rides

If you've noticed you spend a good chunk of time in the car, use this time to strengthen your language skills. Whether you get stuck in morning traffic or have to take lengthy car rides to visit family, this time spent in the car can be productive. Find recorded language lessons you enjoy and have them ready for your next car ride. This type of practice will help you strengthen your listening skills and pronunciation.
