Overcome Your Fear of Speaking Luxembourgish in 5 Easy Steps

Every one of us can find an excuse not to learn and speak a foreign language. And it’s only natural to do so. After all, communicating in a different language takes us out of our comfort zone completely and puts us at the mercy of our native conversation partners. Yes, it can be awkward to make a mistake but we are grownups and should know how to laugh it off at this point in our lives.

Try this memorization technique for verb conjugations

 

Do you remember verb conjugation from your school days? Reading, covering up the solution, trying to remember the correct answer, writing and re-writing endless lists of verbs... for a lot of people, this was not much fun (even though, depending on your learning preferences, this might actually have worked for you). We will try a different method here so you can see for yourself if that works for you as a primary method of learning Luxembourgish verb conjugations, or maybe just as an occasional change in your language-learning routine.

This method relies on the assumption that language is better learned when we use our imagination and emotions and not simply repeat endless lists of words.
