I wish the speaker had said something in Chinese... I teach Russian to English speakers, and I'd say that it's impossible to get fluent in whatever language in six months unless you're a small child living in a country of the language you're leaning. Also, what does a 6 month period mean? How many hours a day of learning are we talking about? Most of my students had to stop after 1.5 or 2 hours because their brain just get tired, and it's normal. The speaker also forgot one VERY important principle: working on one's self-confidence. I won't be surprised if he's trying to push his own language courses here. This is how they hook people up - by promising impossible... Also, depending on your native language, some languages will be easier for you to learn, and some will be more difficult. And you DO need someone who'll correct your mistakes.

I think a genuine interest in the culture of the language you want to learn can also help a lot! And although in 6 months you could learn a lot, everything depends on how many hours a day you'll be spending to learn. My tips: - learn basic grammar of the language (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, functions of words in senctences...) - start reading very simple texts: * you need to know each word's lexical category and function in the sentence * play with the words (for nouns you can e.g. make plural and for verbs you can make the complete conjugation of any time you know) * learn the first texts by heart

Though he mentioned that immersion was worthless, I don't think so because people cannot help listening and speaking too much in the targeted language when immersed as the same way instructed by him. It's the contradiction.
100%. you have the most revolutionary goal in this century. hope you get it perfectly done. - this video is beautiful and inlightning, thanks for that.

He must be a beginner level as a Chinese language's learner. He’s just fallen into beginner's trap..and still there.. 他的汉语水平肯定是初级。 初级水平的时候我也这么想的。但不是那么简单,他还在初级陷阱里面吧😓。 ビギナーが陥るトラップにハマってますなあ😅

Well, as I have been saying for decades, one reason why people struggle to learn Mandarin is simply that the demand to learn English is too high. Good luck finding a 'language parent' when people want what you have, over giving you what you want from them. BTW, this then creates a negative mental state for learning as essentially EVERY encounter always starts with "hey you look different" or "must speak English to that person" (because they look different). Learning is sadly also political. As it isn't that everyone can live wherever they like. Plus, often as not in order to stay somewhere you may have to speak another language in exchange for the privilege of being there - and a visa. They are all good points; but somehow people fail to see how the World is so biased and not a very level, or fair place. And to make it worse, in the last few years of thinking about it, I rarely ever meet anyone that actually likes the language they are learning (esp. ENGLISH) - most people are forced into it.

I am quite adept at understanding various languages quite quickly - and I can make myself understood relatively easily. HOWEVER, actively speaking and articulating words is a skill that takes (as Learn French with Vincent says in his comment) "the time that it will take". I think that it is crucial to start speaking the language - it engages a different part of the brain than being able to understand (understanding is much easier). My litmus test for having reached a level of fluency is whether I can have a conversation on the phone (i.e., unseen), and understand and be understood.

well, in my opinion it doesn't matter how you're going to learn the language which method you would apply it, it's just passion, patience, and daily practice, so simple and easy also make fun while you learn and use the language as part of your life. I believe the said: "Practice makes perfect". the guy methods are efficient btw.

I have learnt English for more than 10 years. I can speak english flutently, but there are a lot of mistakes (the words I use, the structure, grammar). There is still a huge gap between me and the native speakers. I just can't get every thing right, especially when I write an essay, you can feel that immediately this is written by a Chinese! 6 months? Maybe native speaker can understand what you are saying, but it's impossible to master a language like them do.

Trust me here, you won’t be able to learn foreign language in just 6 months. If you are talking about remembering phrases and pretend you speak the language, that i wouldn’t call it you’ve learnt that language. For one thing you need to be able to think in that language to know that language. Snake oil is what he’s selling. Btw, I speak my native Japanese, Korean, Chinese (written not speaking), English, and German. I took Spanish class in college but I wouldn’t say I speak it I just remember a bit of it...

Perhaps he should be defining fluency better. What is "fluent"? Sure you can be fluent enough in 6 months to speak without pause in daily conversation. Reading, writing, and speaking at a level where you actually sound like a college-educated individual is another matter.

This is mostly pseudo-science. For example, “we used to think that heavy stuff can’t fly”. Then technology followed intention to the point that aerodynamics and aeronautical engineering created a solution. This is not the same thing as saying that all heavy stuff can fly just because you want it to fly. So to superimpose that notion onto language acquisition theory, such that anyone can learn a language, doesn’t make sense.

What I don't get is he said self Emerson by putting yourself in a new place to learn a new language doesn't work because it's all going over your head, but then tells how he unconsciously learned some Chinese by speaking to a Chinese man on a train for two hours then later on was able to use some of it. Wasn't he just describing self Emerson working in that story? so does it work or doesn't it?

Actually, I DID learn to swim when some pranksters threw me into the lake after I told them I didn't know how to swim. To save myself from drowning, I managed to get back to shore. turned out I was doing a stroke I later found out was the 'dog paddle'. So to survive that incident I instinctively  learned how to swim.
Jacob Matthews (6 дней назад)
He's saying that you can't just go to China and immerse yourself, then happen to learn the language. You don't jump into water not knowing how to swim and happen to learn how. You should immerse yourself, but you need to do it with the right mindset and understanding of how to learn.

I come from a family of farmer, English is a second language for me. I have been learning English for last 2 years through movies subtitles, English songs , you tube videos. I used to watch English movies on small television since I started learning English. Notably, Nowadays I can afford to watch movies on theatres and mobile phones. As a result, I will be able to learn English very quickly. But the pity is that I can't grasp reading . Reading books are not with in my wisdom and knowledge. However hard I may try, I never understood difficult paragraphs, passages and essays. I do not know how to improve my reading. I don't know grammar of English. I learn English via listening and watching like a habit. I speak , and write. Most of my friends tell me that my speaking is good. In this situation I despratly need ur suggestion brother and sisters. If I develop my reading skill, I will get a handsome job salary in good companies. I have every chance of improving my life style.

I believe that we can learn a new language in 6 months communicative but I don't believe that everybody can achieve fluency in 6 months. It's really difficult to learn many words like native speakers use during speaking. I've been learning English for about one year on a daily basis and I still have trouble with understanding other people because there are some many diverse accents in the world. Many of expressions and idioms that we shouldn't translate literally so I think it's too short a period of time to achieve fluency.

I'm a native Chicagoan fluent in English (reading, writing, speaking). I'm also a musician and composer. I grew up in a family of 2 English teachers who were also musicians. Three of my grandparents were fluent in multiple languages. My mother (a musician) one of those English teachers, was also fluent in Spanish and French. My spoken English was ALWAYS corrected when I used the wrong grammar. In high school in addition to taking required English, I learned Latin and French. These 2 new languages vastly increased my knowledge and understanding of English vocabulary. To me  English is such a mash-up and melting pot of so  many other different languages. In my experience, it was easier to understand more English if you understand some Latin and other romance languages - the roots from which many English words are derived.  It had also helped me to read voraciously (everything - books, magazines, manuals, directions, bibles, poetry, cereal boxes - everything). In addition I always carry a small dictionary or thesaurus and learn new words while waiting. I like to read large dictionaries and thesauri at home - and they have great pictures, too! I also like to read Shakespeare for a fun challenge.  For years, in addition to dreaming in English, I also dream in French and music...So I guess immersion can be an excellent way to become fluent. But it doesn't hurt to have an ear for music. I think the cadences and rhythm  help with spoken languages. My hubby and I are going to learn Spanish. I also want to learn German - to my ear, German and English sound the same. Three of my siblings have learned Spanish (for their jobs).

English poses a problem that most other languages don't have: it is *full* of idioms. Seriously: take any sentence and 9 times out of 10 it will have an idiom in it. It makes English a real pain in the backside to learn and even harder for a native English speaker to learn another language, but I have a theory that this is the reason why English comedy is so plentiful.

You need to reduce your weight dude,you are gasping while talking to us,😞 And points you delivered are quite complicated except a few. Well ,Everyone has ones own experiences,i know very less English but I learned it in almost three months. You may be eager to know whether how quickly I did it. I learned tenses from a local teacher for one Month then I switched on to reading an English news paper along with referring to a couple of dictionaries. I learned every new word and noted it down using it in my own sentence and got them by rote. I listened to the BBC World,VOA, some movies and some English Channels on TV,it not only sharpened my pronunciations but helped me keep my vocabulary active. But unfortunately I discontinued now I know but nothing except the conveyance of my ideas to some extent. And it took a lot of my time to write this comment.

He should have started out speaking Chinese to show that he actually knew it. He said he learned a second language but he never showed evidence of that
Good point, and I guess the quality of his Chinese is not much better than his drawings, five magic principles or not...

Good speech and methods for learning. But the mission of learning new languages isn't decision world problems. The mission as I think are immigration and to improve yourself because for speaking with foreigners we already have many technologies and apps. Also about immersion in a new country where people speaking the language that you learn is no working, yeh it's true but actually when you get to the new country you need to understand the language to "survive" and you stay attentive and situation do this meaning for you. It's cool, in general, it works. Thank you)
