There has been a lack of my updates here and I have a few reasons for that but today I had to make a post about an email that showed me a different approach to languages. It told how native people think in their language. They don’t think in individual words but in chunks. For example, in English
- How’s it going?
- I’ll give you a call.
- Don’t worry about it!
I’m also at the point in the language where I don’t think about every individual word in the sentence. I’ll just post a screenshot from the email.
I’m happy to know I think like native in English but when it comes to other languages I often learn individual words only. I use flashcard system and not many teaches phrases or sentences. Should I give up on learning individual words and learn only sentences? I’m not a person to make such sudden changes so I will continue learning vocabulary while thinking that ‘maybe it’s not the best way to learn but it proved working before’. On the other hand, I can’t think in sentences in most of my target languages.
So I know it’s not good but still continue doing that.
