Accustom your ears and eyes

Listen to music and watch TV as often as you can in this language. Your subconscious mind will record the sounds and actions related to the words you hear and see. Soon, you will recognize basic words, your mind is designed to make these connections. A child learns to speak by watching and listening. He relates the action with the sound he hears; if he is hungry, he learns to say something related to food because that's what he has heard. The simple mind of an infant does not reason enough yet to understand verb tenses or word definitions, but his innate communication skills help him to connect the physical sensation with the corresponding word. We must activate our ability to let thoughts flow through our brain spontaneously, making these connections with the world around us in this new language.
