The main issue is to learn your target language just like a child would do:
2. Focus on getting the meaning of the phrases by observing body language
3. Focus on the core words - daily words: pronouns, verbs, adjectives (about 3000 words are enough to have a basic conversation)
4. Start mixing - a baby will say "mama hungry", they don´t care about grammatical rules, you shouldn´t care either. Just speak!
5. Find yourself "a language parent" - the baby has parents who speak to him all the time. They understand what the child wants to say and respond by using correct language.
6. Copy the face – watch native speakers and observe their face, in particular their mouth movements while they’re speaking
7. “Direct connect” to the target language – find ways to connect words directly with images and other internal representations.
Interesting approach, don´t you think?
And the five principles are:
1. Focus on language content that is relevant to you.
2. Use your language as a tool to communicate from day 1.
3. When you understand the message you will acquire the language unconsciously
4. Language is not about accumulating a lot of knowledge but is rather a type of physiological training.
5. Psycho-physiological state matters – you need to be happy, relaxed, and most importantly, you need to be tolerant of ambiguity. Don’t try to understand every detail as it will drive you crazy.
