Nobody argues with the assertion that language alone can learn. And one can cite many examples to prove this truth. There are people who are able to master one foreign language in a quarter! But this is as the average temperature in the hospital. Somewhere, as if someone is all right, but someone – almost dead. I mean, part of language learning. Therefore, the question should be put this way – whether it is you are able to independently learn that or another language.
After all, every person is different. One foreign language are given very easily (about such talk – polyglot), and others – easier to plow a field. And then it's not just ability. Then necessary and will, patience and, most importantly, the motive. As shown by numerous studies, given the will, perseverance and some ability, but without a serious motive, people tend to language is not possessed.
This is something akin to the desire of man quit smoking. While he does not want to, no technique will not help – people will smoke. Motives for learning foreign languages are different. The strongest, this career – you learn the language, get a promotion at work or simply 'll be able to find a promising, high-paying job. Slightly weaker motive – to enter university. Typically, the university received at a young age when career aspirations are not so pronounced. The motives are the desire to show off in front and someone else (for example, my girlfriend), or the upcoming tourist trip abroad. These motives, of course, one of the weakest. But if you sit down with the motif of textbooks such as "just learn a language, then most likely it did not happen, maybe you pull a couple of months. Now, what about learning the language through a variety of courses, that is, where is implied in one form or another teacher. The latter would make language learning easier and more efficient. It's like a coach in the sport – you can run and most of the morning, but no serious results you're unlikely to get anywhere. But in any case, even the most experienced teacher or the most steep courses will not replace personal work. Another argument in favor of language teaching with teachers, other than efficiency (ie, a teacher, spending the same effort, you will learn more than those without a teacher), this increase motivation. After all courses are not free! And pay your money, you will already be difficult to get off halfway! After all, if your hard-earned money wasted. But in any case, a foreign language can not be taught, he can only learn. Mastering a foreign language – is a huge and painstaking work. But, if successful, you except that you will open new horizons and work, and the general perception of the world, certainly will raise their own self-esteem. Deloitte has many thoughts on the issue. After all, I was able to take a block, could!
