Article Body: There is no magic formula to improving your language skills in your native tongue or to learning a new language. You must simply take your time and put in plenty of effort and hard work in order to be successful. It is important to be patient with yourself as well and not to push yourself to work beyond what you are capable of. Rome wasn't built in a day after all and the same is true of language acquisition. Learning and practice are the two main components to studying language. Work hard with your lessons and then set aside plenty of time to practice what you have learned. Be aware that simply memorizing words and/or phrases is not going to get you where you want to go. Read on for some tips that can help make your study of a new language as efficient as can be. Taking a class at a language school is an excellent way to learn. Check at your local community college or recreation center to see if classes are taught in other languages. Often there is more than one level to the classes, such as beginner, intermediate and advanced. Immersing yourself in the language and culture is another way to learn a new language. For example if you want to learn Spanish, spend some time in Spain or better yet, live there for a period of time to acquaint yourself with the ways of the people and the language. In the same way, if you want to learn French then go to France to learn from those who speak the language fluently. Take online language lessons by way of the Internet. Euro Talk is a website that sells language learning software in over 100 languages and includes step-by-step instruction. Not only are the lessons at Euro Talk (www.eurotalk.ie) informative and educational but they also provide enjoyment to accompany the learning!

If you wish to learn French and your native tongue is English, then let Euro Talk help you see the unique differences between the two languages and from there you can decide what it is you need to concentrate on. Stand with the beginners' section of Euro Talk and work first on basic vocabulary words, as well as grammar, pronunciation and verb lessons. Another excellent way to learn is to get into the habit of listening to the language you wish to learn on a day-to-day basis. As you acquaint yourself with the language from an aural perspective you will not just learn the words but also the accent and the intonations of how words and sentences are spoken. Listening to music and watching movies in the new language is also highly recommended. http://french.about.com/cs/beginning1/a/start.htm
