Like a Sport

Learning a language is like learning a new sport: you have to train your mind and body to perform new skills. Some people may have natural talents, but what separates superior athletes and linguists is simply this: training and practice.

The first step is quality training. The right perspective and solid, engaging teaching methods can make the complex seem simple and the confusing seem natural. Just like in athletics, the right coaching can make all the difference.

Then comes the practice. Some people say that practice makes perfect. The truth is that perfect practice makes perfect. Practicing something wrong will only reinforce bad habits.

Learning languages is like learning a new sport: you have to train your mind and body to perform new skills.

The team at Language Possible helps you practice in ways that are real, relevant, and rewarding. We want you to practice the most important things the right way and enjoy the experience.

Learning and practicing fundamentals is important, but if you aren’t practicing with the goal in mind of participating in the real thing, practice seems boring and pointless. Can you imagine a sports training program that only allowed people to experience a real game after years of practicing simple, isolated tasks?

At Language Possible, we believe that you should experience authentic language from day one. Things like songs and movies are a great way to be immersed in and entertained by authentic language at the same time. It’s not only the best way to stay interested, it’s the best way to learn. That is why our courses are designed to provide you with the tools and confidence to dive into all of the interesting things that made you want to learn the language in the first place.
