Mindset for learning languages
The mindset while learning a language is very important! The approach you have to the language also has a great effect on your learning! You have great advantages on your behalf. And you must know them. First of all, we live in an age in which learning a new language had never been so accessible. In the past, just a few could pay a private tutor. Or have time and money to travel to a foreign country to learn a new language. This excluded a lot of people.
Some years ago, just wanting to learn a new language was not enough. You also had to have the means to achieve this. But today we live in the era of information. To learn Italian or any other language, the only thing you need is to want to learn. And you will find online all the resources to achieve it! And even better, you can find tons of these resources completely free! Learning the Italian language online free is no more a dream! The Internet has reduced the distance between you and the language you want to learn. You are enormously lucky compared to all those people in the past.
Imagine a person 100 years ago wanting to learn Italian. Suppose that person heard you say that you can not learn it. Even with all the resources, you have on the Internet nowadays. What do you think that person would think about you? What do you think that person would do with all the opportunities you have?
Capabilities of our brain for learning languages
And as a second consideration, all of us have a marvelously powerful machine: our brain. Hence learning a new language is a task your brain is capable of doing. It’s design considers doing things a lot more complex than learning a language. It is like if you have a Ferrari parked in your garage. And you are doubtful if you could make it to your local supermarket. With that Ferrari, you could reach your local supermarket and beyond.
Besides these considerations, learning a second language has proven to be good. Therefore it’s an excellent exercise for your brain. If you have a powerful Ferrari but you do not ride it, the day will come when you will want to use it, but it will not respond. As a person goes to the gym to exercise his body, you can exercise your brain learning a new language.
