  • Today we're going to talk about four techniques to help you stop translating in your head.

  • And instead, start thinking in your target language.

  • This will allow you to have conversations with ease, read smoothly and better understand native speakers.

  • These are four methods to help you think in a new language.

  • Number 1: Surround Yourself with Your Target Language

  • This way you'll be completely immersed in the language.

  • Without realizing it, you'll learn pronunciation, sentence structures, grammar and new vocabulary.

  • Play music in the background while you're cooking, or have a radio station on while you study.

  • Just use one of our endless podcasts available to you.

  • These are easy to listen to in the background while doing other things.

  • Number 2: Learn through Observation

  • This is how we all learned our native languages as kids.

  • Words will develop their own meanings that relate better to your target language rather than meanings that are translated directly.

  • Number 3: Speak out Loud to Yourself

  • Even if you're a little embarrassed, it forces you to listen to how you speak, it makes it much easier to spot simple grammar mistakes.

  • Number 4: practice daily

  • If you practice everything for only one day, you won't retain the information you learned.

  • The brain can realistically only focus for about thirty minutes, so studying a little every day allows you to absorb better.

  • Follow these steps and have patience.

  • You'll soon be able to achieve your language learning goals.

  • Just make sure to remember these four methods.
