Make New Friends = Learn a new language
It is best to learn a language with someone. Find a friend who would be willing to learn a new language with you. If you have someone, you will have more motivation, support and you can practice with them. Also, attend events related to the language you are learning in your city. This is an amazing opportunity to meet someone who is a native speaker.
Watch a Movie
Combine relaxation time with studying, turn on a movie in the language you are learning. This will help you pick up some new vocabulary, but will also make you more familiar with the pronunciation or culture. During the screening, take notes and write down each new word. After the film, repeat all the words to consolidate them, if you still have the strength you can try to create some sentences with these words.
Talk to yourself
If you don’t have someone to talk to, you can always talk to yourself. You may try to talk about things you did today using the past tense. This will help you improve your pronunciation and make you less afraid to talk. Also try recording yourself talking, listen back later, and try to catch what mistakes you made.
