Many langauge learners are interested in ways to learn a language in a similar manner to how a child learns their first language. Jeff Brown’s way might be an option. Brown is a Spanish professor who speaks several other languages, and he recently made a goal of learning Arabic within a year. Brown is a native English speaker, who points out in the video that Arabic is one of the hardest languages for an English speaker to learn.
Brown’s plan was to have regular conversations with language partners, and he gives tips on how to make the most of sessions with a language partner. He spent nine months having regular conversations with his language partners, and then spent three months learning Arabic in Egypt. In the end, Brown has a good command of Arabic, and his way of language learning is worth considering for anyone who wants to learn a language relatively quickly.
