It is not easy to learn another language that is why many have given up even if they are just starting. That is because you have to start from scratch. If it is a language that you have not heard often, you would surely have difficulties but make it as a challenge so that you will not easily give up. So if you decide to start, have a motivation that would help you make every effort to learn the language. If you know your motivation or the purpose, it is a great help.
If you can have a partner where you can practice with each other then it is also a very good tip. That is why you can encounter many who now use the internet and software and apps to find someone learning the same language. They would do activities together that will help them to learn faster and at a steady pace. If you are not using what you are learning, you can come to forget it then you cannot proceed easily to the next step.
That is why you could also talk to yourself and hear how you pronounce words. That is why it is better if you have audio or video where you could listen how words are pronounced and how they are used. Then you could check yourself. Do not be too serious but leave room for mistakes and creativity. It is okay to feel embarrassed when you have mistakes as they are normal just like kids who are learning to speak.
