Tips to learn a new Language
• According to www.bbc.co.uk/languages/learn/index.shtml learning something new every day in a matter of 10-15 minutes may be a great step to achieving knowledge and understanding a foreign language. This may be way more helpful with real results at the end of the day as opposed to sitting in class room for grueling hours once a week or month, trying to cram loads of information.

This can be done with friends or family but the best way would be to practice with a person who has that particular language as their mother tongue, or who speaks it fluently as a second language. This helps the person learning to put into practice what they learn as they stand chances of being corrected and polished.
• Interest is a very important issue when learning a new language. The higher the level of interest the faster one learns a language because this individual will be more than willing to religiously follow their learning routine, while coupling it up with all the necessary practice. In fact when so much interested, one might as well go ahead and perfect the accent of the language in particular. One may say it is because of disinterest that there are people who speak certain languages with foreign accents. The best example is how French people speaking in English are easily identified as French thanks to their heavy accents.
