Language learning is about acquiring words. The number of words we know, if they are acquired through lots of listening and reading, is a good measure of our familiarity with the language.

  1. Steve Eu acredito definitivamente que o caminho para se alcançar uma fluência de um idioma assim como chinês e japonês e Através da associação de palavras Imagem E Linguagem Corporal

  2. A have my own experience in studying foreign language words – when I started to study Chinese, studying characters and tones was very hard, therefore I wrote a short application in Python with random appearing of words. It helped me much to get initial Chinese vocabulary.

  3. I got it, thanks sir for your tips. Actually, i know a many vocabulary in English since i learn English 1 years ago. But, the problem is i forget it when i speaking in English idk why can like that😖. I can understand when other people speaking in English, i can reading in English, but i can't speaking English with other people. I can if i am alone in a room. Maybe i already have been English for 1 years so, i should learn hard for this language.

    I'm sorry if my English is really bad, i coment for this video just test my English Skills thank you

  4. I've been learning English for a couple of years, one thing that I'm not doing anymore is studying in traditional courses in my country, because you go to school, study lots of grammar only, and we usually pay lots of money to have poor conversation, the classes tend to have lots of people and you have no enough time to get to practice what you have learned. I have a friend leaving in Japan, she has being there since 3 years ago, and it turns out that she doesn't speak the language because she's just have Brazilian friends.

  6. Hi Mr. Steve, I have a question. What do you think about the book that calls 4000 Essential English Words?

    book by Paul Nation. Nowadays, I'm learning words from that book. After ending the first part of the book. I gained lots of experience and my language barrier was burst now I can easily comprehend many English contents like movies, books, and music. As you mentioned these are passive words, and I can't use these words in many situations. Besides, I have a problem the words from the book are getting more difficult and it's hard to memorize them.
