It is recommended that you immerse yourself into the culture by writing, reading, speaking and listening.This can easily be achieved by having an international penpal or by traveling to a desired country. Get a Penpal or correspond with a travel partner with your Broadband Phone or a VoIP service plan. Read and translate international newspapers, listen to radio stations from other countries, watch streaming video online in a foreign language. You are essentially familiarizing yourself with a language the same way you learned english. By doing this as often as you can you will find yourself in level 1 and if you're a quick learner maybe in a level 2 for acquiring a new language. Obviously, by having friends from overseas, it will make this an easier task.
