Most of the languages we want to learn today, can be traced back to Latin, so it might be a good idea to brush up on Latin before you take any classes for languages.

Speaking the English language is like trying to learn Latin. If you learn Latin before you attempt to master English, you will have an easier time. Why? Because Latin is the basis for English, as well as other languages -- German, Italian, French and Spanish.

It can be easy too improve your English. You first must read it and recite it over and over, almost to a point of exhaustion! There are so many English words that sound the alike, but are different. Take the words: hear and here … oh, a 3rd English word "hare", a rabbit! How come so many different words that sound the same but are different all together?

The word 'hear - “Do you hear me screaming your name?

The other 'here' means “Hey, hey, I’m over HERE!”

It can get very confusing for the 'layman' trying to get the language down pat. It helps to take great notes if you are taking a class to speak English or whatever language you are studying. Also, if you are learning hands on with a CD or Blu Ray or class online, then keep repeating the lessons. Be sure to tape it. A good idea to incorporate but is hard for some, is to take the words and and make up some sort of odd story about them and what the words mean. Sounds easy, but it's not for a majority trying to learn. But just try. If you can get over that hurdle of confidence, you can overcome and learn.

For example: In Spanish… Hola, como esta? Mi llama es Amelia. See the sentence as a piece of art -- HOLA COMO ESTA looks like “Holy(moly) Batman (what is that?) como esta! It means “What is this?” So pretend you are Robin asking Batman “Holy moly Batman, what is it!” or HOLA, what’s this!” If you have to memorize words in Spanish, use a story for each word.

Lesson II -- WORDS...

1. Queso (Cheese), 2. Hola (Hello) 3. Yo (I) 4. Donde es un bonita senorita? (Where is the pretty woman?” And so on…

The word “Queso means Cheese”. Try memorizing it by making up a story about both words: "Hi, Mr. Grocer, I hear you have a new ‘cheese’ called ‘queso’, can I have a sample?”

And then the other example: Hola can be memorized by saying the word “OH-LA”, like in French, “OU(H) LA LA”, but you know it’s Spanish, HOLA, heeeelllllooo, like a French guy would say to a pretty gal in a bar. O’ LA LA, nice lady!

Then, Donde es un bonita senorita? is: memorized “Donde looks like a handsome man’s name… DONNY (Osmond) is a pretty face (woman), but you see DONNY IS A PRETTY FACE, knowing that it’s DONDE ES UN BONITA SENORITA, which is where is the pretty woman! So you have to be free style to associate the words. Once you know how to do that, you can be an ace at this.

You have to step out of the box, and make the words look like an artistic pallet. That’s scratching on the edge of translating. And this pertains to even the Holy Bible, which can be read that way too, or any church doctrine, for that matter. Names come to mind: The 5 books of Moses, The Books of King Solomon, The Dead Sea Scrolls, or even the Arab Koran.

It’s amazing what you will learn if you put your mind on the right path. They say we only use 5% of our brains, but some use more. After taking up learning a language, the brain starts to change. It will push against you, tell you to stop, not react right away, but once you overcome that, you will learn, but it's based all on the ability to memorize and learn from memorizing other things about the sentences or words in the other languages. This is the biggest plus, if you can obtain the ability that is hidden within you, you can learn other foreign tongues.

The parable of "The Tower of Babel" had to happen so we could let our brains grow and actually 'relearn' languages, but It's also to teach something to thousands and thousands of people down thorugh the ages. Oh, it can be done, try it. You may learn more than you think. Good luck.
