Enthusiasm热情

 

It always starts like this… Whether you did it for fun or necessity, you probably struck out on this path with good intentions, high motivation and a spectacular fireworks show of new insights. A good start is half the battle!

开始的时候总是这样的,不管你是出于兴趣还是出于需要,学习新语言的时候你都是满心好奇,充满兴致。不管怎么说,好的开始就已经成功了一半了呀!

 Obsession痴迷

 

Then comes the brief period in which it seems like your entire existence revolves around the effort to penetrate this new language and culture. I don’t know if that’s ever happened to you, but it’s always that way for me. When I learned French, everything I did had to shimmer with Parisian elegance. 

有那么一段时间,你会完全沉溺于新的语言及其所属的文化中。我不知道你是否有这种感觉,但是我经历过。当我开始学习法语后不久,我的生活中到处都充斥着法式优雅,我的衣柜里都是条纹衬衫,我的书架上都是法国作家和导演的作品。你觉得这有些夸张?可能吧,但我要学的不只是法语,还有一切与法语有关的事!

Discomfort苦恼

After the manic phase is over, the time comes for the actual language learning to begin. And it’s exactly at this point that the first setbacks emerge. You’ll first be overcome with a feeling of sheer panic… because nothing you learn seems to stay in your memory. The words seem so different than anything familiar to you and you can’t make any connection between them. Not to mention the many verb forms. It’s at this stage that you’ll feel the temptation to simply disappear and leave it all behind.

在狂热阶段过去之后,才是语言学习的真正开始。在这时,第一道障碍出现了,你开始感到不安,因为你发现你没有办法记住你所学的新知识,你记不住那些单词,更别提那些动词形式了。在这个阶段,你会发现学习的动力开始消失了。

Shyness不敢开口

 

We all know that the key to fast progress when learning a language is practice – preferably with a native speaker. Sounds easy. But putting this knowledge into practice is something totally different. In truth we’re all incurably shy, and it’s hard for us to get past ourselves and show our vulnerable sides. The secret is to always ask yourself, “What could happen if I make a mistake?” The answer: nothing terrible!

我们都知道“熟能生巧”是语言学习的必经之途,尤其是和以该种语言为母语的人交流。但是这并不容易,因为这意味着要想别人展示自己的不足之处。每当这时候,你可以问问自己:“如果我说错了会发生什么?”然后回答:“总不会发生坏事。”

5

Lack of Understanding缺乏理解

 

It usually goes something like this: you’ve finally found the courage to jump in the deep end. You’ve rehearsed everything you want to say over and over in your head and even practiced in front of the mirror so you look as cool as possible when you say it. You finally get the opportunity to use your knowledge on the lady at the register, on a passerby or on the waiter at the restaurant. You already imagine emerging from your conversation bursting with pride. But what happens instead? After listening to your well-thought-out sentence with a big smile, your conversation partner answers and… you don’t understand a thing!

好了,你终于鼓气勇气要开口了。你已经在脑海中预演了无数遍你要说的话,也对着镜子练习了好几遍,你觉得已经万无一失了。你找到机会和外国人交流,当你充满自信、面带微笑的说出你想说的话,你却发现······你听不懂对方的回答!

6

Frustration沮丧

 

Now comes a truly critical phase. “How can it be?” you ask yourself sadly. “I’ve been learning this language for months and don’t understand a thing when someone speaks to me. I have absolutely no talent for languages. That’s it! I’m done!”

之后,你就捶胸顿足的问自己“为什么会这样”。我都学好几个月了,为什么别人跟我说话是,我还是听不懂。我肯定没有语言天赋,算了。

7

Revelation新的发现

 

And then something magical happens. It happens unexpectedly when you’ve given up all hope: suddenly you understand! Everything seems to be in order and you no longer have thoughts of trying to escape when asking a random stranger something on the street. Off you go! It’s all downhill from here!

然而,当你已经绝望到要放弃时,神奇的事情发生了。突然你能听懂了!一切都顺理成章,你不再逃避和外国人交流,在大街上随便找个人说话也没问题。一切变得好起来了。

 
8

Excitement兴奋

 

At this point you’re suddenly sociable and your shyness is all but gone. You talk and talk and aren’t afraid of anything. Isn’t it great? Just don’t let go of the reins now, because there always lurks the danger of…

这时你就抛开害羞,乐于交际了。你滔滔不绝,无所畏惧,这看起来挺好的,但是千万别就此变成一匹脱缰的野马,因为危机无处不在。

9

Embarrassment尴尬

 

You feel so safe that no one and nothing can stop you. And it’s exactly at this point that the most embarrassing – but also funniest – things happen. A falsely-used word, one verb in the place of another, a saying that actually doesn’t exist in that language. But have no fear: you learn from your mistakes, and this is how you progress along the way.

你觉得万无一失,无所阻挡,往往就在这时会发生一些尴尬又有趣的事情——用词不当、乱用熟语······但是不要因此胆怯,吃一堑长一智,你将由此获得进步。

10

Triumph!胜利

 

It’s done: the new language doesn’t hold any more secrets from you. You understand everything and can speak without difficulty. You can even laugh at the mistakes that just a short time ago were so frustrating. Great job! As we said earlier, the most important thing is to keep at it!

这门新语言对你来说已经不算什么了!你能听懂别人说的话,流利地表达自己的想法,你甚至能对不久前让你沮丧不已的错误一笑置之。太棒了!就像我们之前说的那样,最重要的是坚持不懈!
