now, I’m just wondering how I can make my comprehensible input more comprehensible, and any other techniques for learning languages. thanks
Well, the techniques are all over the place here on the forum, and others may want to contribute, but with regard to some possible confusion over the first part: you learn by repeatedly exposing yourself to comprehensible input. This means stuff you can understand. If you can can’t understand it, you use LingQ to look up the words and phrases so you can.
I would also add - after checking up th emeanings of particular words listen to the text until you are able to follow the text with your understanding easily (ie you understand while listening, you don’t have to ask yourself, ‘wait…what does this word/sentence mean?’ This is at least the way it works for me.
