While few of us will ever take on the ambitious challenge of learning four foreign languages in a year, many of us yearn to be more proficient in another language. The secret to success as it turns out is simpler than you think.

Scott Young is a blogger, speaker and author. He previously spoke at TEDx EastsidePrep about his project “The MIT Challenge” to self-test MIT’s undergraduate computer science curriculum in one year, using their freely available information. His most recent project was with Vat Jaiswal, traveling to four countries, learning languages, with the goal of not speaking English for an entire year. He writes about learning and self-education at his website, ScottHYoung.com.

Vat Jaiswal is a graduate student, aspiring architect and filmmaker. His most recent project was with Scott Young on The Year Without English, where he traveled through Spain, Brazil, China, Taiwan and Korea creating four short documentaries on language learning and cultural immersion. He shares his work, including experimental time-lapse photography and an interview series with successful architects, at vatjaiswal.com

    I am seriously disappointed at all the comments here with people who swallowed all the lies that these two guys said.
    First of all, language acquisition is a subconscious process, not a conscious one. We acquire language ONLY when we receive comprehensible input, i.e. messages that we understand. TALKING IS NOT PRACTISING. There is NO evidence whatsoever that talking o writing improves the communicative achievement. That's why they didn't cite any scientific study when speaking about their method, because THERE IS JUST NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT IT. Besides, if you speak too early on while studying a foreign language you risk your output abilities becoming seriously flawed because you are not saying anything that is correct and that can create bad habits in the long run. It would be possible, though, to better your accent by only talking but only when you have a very high comprehension ability because that way you can actually tell what's wrong with your accent because you already have the way that language works embedded into your brain. Moreover, native speakers WILL NOT correct all your mistakes, they'll just skip lots of them, in fact. And here I only talked about pollishing off your accent; they only way you become more fluent in the language is by receiving lots of input.
    7:46 Furthermore, in 3 months the best you can achieve (and in fact they didn't even achieve, and I can tell because I am a Spanish native speaker and know what their Spanish level actually is when listening to them) is just a very basic level with which you can't in fact speak about the meaning of life or even simpler subjects relating friendship, schoolship, money spending, language learning, etc. In that level you can only talk about colors, simple feelings, and not much more. I literally laughed when they said that they speak confident Spanish, hahahaha, come on, your messages in Spanish on week 12 weren't even comprehensible to me.

    In conclusion, you need to practise the correct way, which is Stephen Krashen's way (search it on google): you need to only receive messages that you can understand and don't talk at all in the first stages, lots of messages in fact.

    Problems with this method: 1. Many people don't know anyone who speaks the language they wish to learn; 2. During a pandemic, it is even harder to speak with other people on a daily basis; 3. Imagine someone approaches you at work every lunchtime and tries to speak English only, because they wish to learn English. How long will it take before you start avoiding this person, even though you want to help them in principle? So, this no-English rule doesn't seem at all practical for me.
    I am learning four languages at Duolingo (free) and YoYo Chinese (low-cost), two online prepackaged language courses. I've been regular, about forty minutes once a day for three months. I can say that I can tolerate these lessons, but I can't say that I really enjoy them. I feel frequent frustration with the fact that they are not tailored to what I find easy or hard to learn, and with their software bugs. Also, I forget old parts of the language while trying to learn new parts. I haven't learned the numbers, confidently, in any of the languages. I do feel that I am vaguely familiar with the basics of the four languages, but I can't read, write, speak, or understand speech in any one after three months of study.

Number one - your first second language should be the language you are truly in love with, not the country you can/can't get to immediately. The 2nd language that you truly want to express yourself in vs. a language that is forced on you.

    Love this video! It reminded me of all I did to learn how speak English. First of all, I felt in love with the sound of the English language when I was in 3rd grade. A couple of salesman came to my school offering English books. They went classroom by classroom teaching English from their books. My first words were:
    Book=libro
    Pencil=lápiz
    Teacher=maestro
    Apple=manzana
    House=casa
    School=escuela
    That demonstration made me dream on speaking English someday, just like those gays spoke.
    Second, even though English was not part of the academical curriculum at the elementary school, I played pretending that I spoke English by repeating words and some sentences I heard in songs.
    Second, once I was in secondary school (middle and high school) I had English clases twice a week only, but oh boy, those two hours were like the bread and water that fed me. For some reason it was so easy for me to understand the English grammar. Writing words, sentences and paragraphs were like putting puzzle pieces together.
    My best grades were in the English classes. I think, I never got tired of making the effort to learn the language.
    Third, I had the opportunity to continue my education in the United States. I took some ESL (English as a Second Language) clases. I remember telling my self that If I really wanted to understand the English language and speak it I had to play the rule NO SPANISH AT ALL. So, I distanced myself from all Spanish speaking classmates (unless we spoke English) and became great friends with a classmate from Vietnam and another one from South Korea. We forced each other to speak English because it was our common language. Lastly, I decided to work for a few hours a day. This also helped me to force myself to speak English because nobody spoke Spanish.
    I think that to learn how to speak another language you must have a STRONG DESIRE to do all it takes to accomplish the goal.
    To this day, I am still learning and I love it!!!
    What I am going to do now is learning how to speak Italian!!! I love that language as well!!!
    Best luck to those learners!!!

    Their anecdotal experience doesn't demonstrate causality. The current best theory of language acquisition from Dr. Stephen Krashen agrees with decades of evidence and says that input is all that matters to acquire a language. Writing and speaking right away it's useless or detrimental. What they experienced is a massive amount of input. Refusing to use English causes other people to use the target language with you more, and that increase in input is likely what aided them. The effect they experienced is real, but their advice sets people up for stress and discomfort because it attributes the wrong cause to their feelings of success.

      I would not take Krashen’s theorizing as gospel. He has contradicted himself many times. He was a big advocate for “bilingual” education in California before it was voted down. Krashen claimed that teaching kids mostly in Spanish was the best way for them to learn English which is obviously not true. There are also many studies about the importance of recall/retrieval (as opposed to simple recognition) and speaking is the best way to do that. Interaction may be important as well. Listening and reading can work pretty well but I think people learn faster if they’re actively using the language.

    Best Advice I have ever heard for learning conversation. I think the initial idea of immersion was exactly this: No native speaking, only the new tongue. People seem to think they are practicing immersion just because they go to a foreign country, but then speak English to everyone. No - no - no. If you are speaking your mother tongue you are not immersed. So immerse yourself!

    I think they're wrong. The actual secret of learning a language is to find a way of engaging actively with it that you really enjoy.
    That way you can study day after day for the the hundreds of hours it takes without burning out.
    Their way might be great for extroverts like them or for Benny Lewis - a YouTube polyglot who uses a similar approach. But it would be torture for introverts.
    I know accomplished polyglots who study for months before they say a word to anyone else. They use self-talk instead.
    There's no one best way - just the personalised way that keeps you motivated over the long term, with your own unique abilities, goals, likes and dislikes.

    This method works with no doubt but presenters did not mention why!
    The reason is that mind gives priority to anything which repeated more. When we learn a new language we should stop using our brain with our native one and force it to always use new one. Using both languages (old one + new one) ruins the new one!

    So to learn a language
    1. Look for someone that knows that language (maybe fly and live to another country for a while to meet them)
    2. Have no job or responsibility that will prevent you from dropping everything and living somewhere for months and not need to utilize your primary language
    3. Have the means to live there for months

    I don't buy into this 100%. I have found that no matter how hard I try sometimes I just can't get the meaning of a new word. I am learning Thai and during a recent visit to Thailand people keep asking where I was from. I know how to tell them I am American and that I come from the United States. Suddenly some one asked me what state I came from. I understood the whole sentence except for the Thai word for "state". I was totally mystified. Well I went home and asked my wife who speaks three languages what does this unknown Thai word mean. First she had to ask me for context so I spoke back the sentence as I understood it. Thai being tonal meant not only didn't I understand the word I didn't understand the tone. Well after asking her this question in Thai she looked at me and said that word means "state". I have never forgotten that word even though I hardly ever use it. So sometimes one has to switch back to ones native language or you will just be lost.. On the other hand if the Thai people speaking with me had owned an Atlas and said something like California is a state, Colorado is a state, etc. I might have made the connection, but by myself without the help of either the native speaker or my wife speaking my native language I would still have no idea what this word meant. Right now in my studies I hear a word commonly used in Thai and can't figure out its meaning so far. I can't look it up as I don't read or write Thai. So once again even though I have heard the word many times I must ask for the correct meaning. I think I know what it means, I just can't be 100% sure. All in all I do believe speaking in the language is the best approach, but in my mind it is not 100% the best approach. Voice to text software for Thai is not a good tool, as again the language is tonal and I could walk away thinking I was correctly ordering a dish of fried fish and the waitress was wondering why I was ordering deep fried elephant. It actually happened to me when one day someone took the time to ask with jesters and such if I really wanted fried knee caps instead of fried rice.

    This is a good vid but like the rest it is not for beginners. Why not make things simple, and just start going from giving information to asking for information. All you need to begin having a conversation, is mastery over five kinds of words. That will allow you to confirm or deny information. Monologues are nice, but people want INTERACTION. To do the "moving to another country" thingy, you need to be at LEAST at the INTERMEDIATE level. L.L. is not acquired by osmosis. That also goes for talking with a native. Learn the three Major Movements (and their respective vocanularies) before even thinking of Social Conversation.

      @Al 72 Look, language learning isn't hard if you do it right. You can learn how to converse in a new language over coffee, but that doesn't mean you can go into a coffee shop and strike up a conversation with an 18 YO person. The conversation at this point is going to be technical. Once you can confirm or deny information, you are ready to learn the information that we use in a social encounter. Once you know THAT info, you are better prepared for "Total Immersion"...and this is just to talk about things and people. The only other thing lacking to complete this package, is how to talk about actions. Once you get to that trinity, you are ready for the "Outside World". At this point you are also ready for ESL, apps, and SVsupport methods and advice.

    From my experience, French speakers in Canada are not very helpful with this. If you can't speak their language perfectly, they don't even want you to attempt speaking with them. This has been the drawback. However, when speaking Korean with a friend at work, he is more than willing to help me out. The same goes for speaking Spanish with the Spanish speakers. They love that you try speaking their language. On top of this, I have been able to pick up a lot of ASL speaking with the hearing impaired as well. All, except the French speakers, are very helpful. This is my experience.

      Try out something like r/penpals and look for people who speak your target language. I've found it to be an extremely useful source and commit yourself to not only a no English rule when writing to them, but also a no English rule if you talk to them over Discord or something like that

    What is the recommendation for comprehending the native speaker talking back to you? Feeling the confidence to speak is one obstacle, but understanding what is said to you presents another issue. Do you have a suggestion?

    I knew a guy that lived in Panama for 8 years and does not speak spanish. One reason is because the majority of his associations were english speaking expats. Now that he is no longer in Panama, he is now taking it seriously.

    Their accents are so thick, listening is more important than speaking. If you speak too much in the beginning, you’ll get bad habits like a thick american accent in another language
