Learning a Foreign Language

Very often from people who are going to learn a foreign language, you can hear: "I am, please, just conversational." I would like to understand these people. What is the meaning they invest in the word "colloquial." We talk, we all differently. Do a university professor a "spoken language", and a plumber – another. Although, of course, there are exceptions. And a university professor can speak as a plumber, a plumber – as a teacher University. But this is still the exception rather than the rule. In addition, when only interested in "spoken language", referring to the minimum knowledge and possession onym. Well, take a look at what the minimum amount of knowledge and skills needed to be explained in a foreign language.

In my opinion, it depends on the needs and intellectual level of the student. As you know, Ellochka-lyudoedochka crawl if I'm not mistaken, thirty words. But most potential students that amount, I think, are not satisfied. In general, most people do not know what they want specifically. I do not want to condemn people in any way, but in all honesty, I must say that many who wish to learn foreign language, even if they have a higher education, and speak their mother tongue very badly. I mean not only the written language, and even vocabulary. And, by the way, even in their specialty, many have very scanty vocabulary luggage. Hear how and what they are talking in the streets, public places, but what's there, listen to the speakers of the Central Radio and Television, for which the right and the rich, figurative speech is extremely important.

However, since participants – young people between the ages of the 18 to 25ti years, many of them serious obstacle is a natural fear of the new country, with potential problems. Continue to learn more with: Oracle. That's why we decided to elaborate on the guarantees Security in this program. For a start I would like to mention that the Au-Pair – This is the official international program, which operates around the world since 1969. That's when the French city of Strasbourg was signed international treaty which defined the statute and rules of the program.

In all countries, program members enjoy all the rights and duties of citizens and are protected by the government. Not even worth talking about that in western Europe social protection is not such an abstraction, as in Ukraine. But that's not all – especially for the program was created by Institute of Agencies Au-Pair.

Each country participating in the program, there is an agency that serves as the guarantor the rights of participants. All agencies are different from each other, but the basic criteria of professionalism remain the same: first – a reasonable price. Since the goal of the program Au-Pair – the study of language and culture, its value should be accessible to all. For example, the cost of the Agency Au-Pair in Germany is only 80 euros in the U.S. – $ 500, of which 200 – refundable deposit. The second item that you want to look for when choosing the agency is careful preparation for future Au-Pair and the host families for long-term cohabitation, explanation of the differences between cultures, warning of possible problems.
