So far in this miniseries on how to learn a language we’ve looked at some simple ways to enhance your language learning efficiency and effectiveness.

In part one we talked about figuring out what your personal learning style is.

Every one of us has certain preferences when it comes to learning. Some like to be told things, others like to read, and others prefer to just get in there and give it a go.

If you missed it you can check out the post here.

This time I want to acknowledge that a language is a very big thing to learn. Many people make the decision to start learning a language, get started, then get scared by just how much there is to it.

Fortunately there’s a pretty simple way to make learning big things easier (and less scary…).
