Putting time and effort in to building up your language skills is one thing. But making sure you don’t lose them is another. So, what’s the best way to ensure all your hard work doesn’t ultimately add up to nothing? The answer is simple. You have to use it so you don’t lose it.

The thing is, you can’t take longevity as a given. Your newly acquired language skills will only gratify you if you pay them some dues.

But what if your personal or work environment doesn’t provide you with much or any opportunity to practice your language skills?

3 Surefire Ways to Keep Your Language Skills Alive

Conversation classes are a fun and infallible way to continuously level up your language skills on a regular basis. Here’s how…

  • Make a Place in Your Life for Your Language Skills – So you did your course and/or passed your exam. That’s great. But it’s just the beginning of an enriching lifelong journey. Signing up to a conversation class enables you to keep building on your language prowess, without the level of commitment you needed to invest in the initial learning process.
  • Commit to a Level of Consistency that Works for You – Making a firm commitment focuses your efforts to prevent your language competence going downhill due to lack of use. To this end, signing up to a weekly or monthly conversation class breathes continuous life in to your language proficiency.
  • Set a Target for Ongoing Success – You might want to challenge yourself to learn 10 new words a week or read a specific text every month. The very act of having a goal sets you up for ongoing success. And a regular conversation class helps to keep you firmly on the right track.
