not only is this easy and enjoyable, but over time, you'll slowly pick things up in which books simply can't teach you. foreign movies aren't hard to find, just search it up on Netflix or ask Google.
2. listen + memorise songs

for Apple users, switch Siri to your selected language. this way, the only means of relying on her/him is if you speak in your new language. you can even practice your pronunciation by striking up a conversation. :)

when you're out in public, try name things that you see. this will slowly train your brain to recognise things in that language.

you don't have to learn alone. find someone who shares the same language interest as you, and encourage one another along the way.

here's one last tip: learning a new language takes time and dedication. it's not easy, but don't let that discourage you. keep finding ways to be motivated and reach that goal of fluency! happy language learning :)
