Guide to learning a foreign language

by Amjad Ali

            Learning a foreign language is not that difficult as it is generally understood. We see a small baby learns mother tongue from the environment, without any conscious efforts for learning. The baby also does not bother for learning the rules of grammar or what of the language to make a fluent speaker. It just listens to the words and sentences spoken all around and tries to articulate / recompose them in its own way. Actually it PRACTICES perceiving the sounds first thing and then speaking them out in own innocent childlike manner.

            My approach towards / understanding of, the subject matter is that learning a language is just like learning to ride a bicycle. Until you take  a ride a bicycle, push along, stagger at the corner and regain your balance, fall down to the ground at times, and then gaining confidence that you can do it, you cannot become a bicyclist. "Practice makes a man perfect" was in the first place invented for learning a language, I suppose. Don't misunderstand that rules of grammar are useless or these ought not to be taught in classes. My point is that learning a language is something "PRACTICAL" like learning Mathematics which you cannot master without rigorous practice. One can be proficient in a language only by practically speaking it with the tongue of one's own mouth.

              That's what I am talking about in the audio link and that's the way of my teaching Pashto and Urdu as foreign languages. If you think I am right in my approach, and you wish to learn these languages, then come along and start speaking Pashto and Urdu in consonance with me. Don't worry I would explain each and every thing necessary to you in English step by step. 

 If you agree to and appreciate the idea, please let me (and everyone) know by writing your comments.  Thanks
