Do you assume that studying in international language may enhance articulation abilities in your native language?

English just isn’t my native language. It is a large dilema on the subject of studying. Most english books which can be translated into my native language can typically really feel very awkward to learn. It simply would not really feel proper. Particularly the dialogue between characters can turn into very robotic and simply not the best way individuals in my nation would converse casually. Typically it appears like I am studying the identical creator. Due to that I learn a lot of the books in english, as a result of it is simply so significantly better to learn in unique language relatively than risking getting an awkwardly translated model of my very own language.

However I additionally learn books with intent to enhance my talking and writing abilities, that are fairly poor on the momment. I typically battle to talk clearly and discover the fitting phrases to specific my concepts. Do you assume It is attainable to realize that if I largely learn books in english?

  1. I am an English speaker who learned french. getting very good at reading french made me noticeably more fluent in speaking and thinking in *French*. but at a certain level I found that it blunted my English.

  2. Well while reading in general does improve your vocabulary in a foreign language and is often recommended, I don’t really see how it would help with your native language, if I’m being honest. I’ve never heard of this approach before, therefore it’s just me guessing, but from my experience with language learning I wouldn’t say it works.

    Maybe try finding books by authors that write in your native language to make it less awkward for you? Because I do get that translations are weird at times and it’s more comfortable to read it in English directly.

  3. In my experience, no. English is not my native language and all reading in English has done is improve my English (which kind of makes sense if you think about it). If you want to become more articulate in your native language, I would suggest reading texts written originally in your native language. That is something that has been working for me – especially when it comes to vocabulary.

  4. Learning Latin made my general written language much better as I became a lot more word efficient

  5. If your goal is to improve your native language I would just read in that until you’re at a more confident level and then go back to English, or at least read more native than english.

  6. No, I’m a big believer in “specificity of training”. If you’re trying to get better at articulating in English, you need to practice articulating in English.

  7. If you wanted to get better at playing the piano, would you practice violin?

    There are lots of apps and websites to help you learn vocabulary. If you pick a word of the day and try and use it several times throughout the day, that can help. If you practice speaking in front of others, you’ll get used to that too.

    English books might help give you ideas or examples you can relate while trying to express something, but I doubt they’d help your actual speaking skill, or your native vocabulary and writing.

    What you might consider trying is writing in your native language a book report on a book you read in English. Try structuring it too. Use an outline, discuss themes, character motivations and traits, symbolism and more. That can help you get a deeper understanding of what you read and the ideas behind it, while improving your writing.

    Sometimes a bit of organization, practice, and variety goes a long way.
