The no English rule is the only way to learn.
Can anyone inform me which method is it? Where can I find more information? Any website?
i am going to do it..!
great motivation for me guys as I stopped my Spanish and regretted that I made a grave mistake of not having a spanish woman I wanted and quit. 35 years later and I am using your method. thanks
This isn't practical for most of the world's population. We can't just pack up and move to a country whose language we want to learn. How about a method for learning a language for those who can't travel to that country??????
Its the same for everything. Getting on stage, riding a bike, driving a car, etc. You just have to do it.
I'd been a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter day saints or commonly known as the Mormons. During my assignment to mindanao, i learned Cebuano language in just One and a half month. Bisayan people noticed my fast improvement in Cebuano and these are the techniques i used to learn to speak Cebuano quickly. First, I really didn't care about the grammar. I set my mind that the more mistakes I make the better i would learn the language. Second, i listened very carefully to the native speakers, i studied out in my mind how they pronounce words and how they put the words together. 3rd, I would use the phrases and new words i heard over and over until it became natural to me. 4th, I would always ask members and investigators to correct my speaking. I learned a lot from them and last but not the least, I would always talk to children. Children are the best teachers, it is because they will not make fun of you when you make mistakes and that they will give you honest feedback.
P.s. Learn the vocabularies and phrases you need in your everyday conversation.
I am a beginner of Spanish, I can speak Chinese and English if anybody can teach me Spanish as a partner, or I can teach the Chinese and English
I agree with both of you a hundred percent this is the first time that I see that this is going to works thank you both so very much!

As a professional FOREIGN LANGUAGE COACH and having travelled the world I will say this, the reason why people don't learn another language is:
1. The person cannot commit seriously.2. The person takes classes but doesn't practice.3. The person never bothers to to fully emerge in the culture.4. The person needs friends in that language so that their new language becomes meaningful.5. The person needs to go to a place where that language is spoken actively.6. Make language learning fun. Don't make it a task.7. Keep notes. Put up flash cards all over your house. 8. Write in your target language. Keep lots of notes.9. Listen to songs. Lots of songs. Listen to films, radio shows, plays. Listen listen listen.10. Don't let one day go by without working your TARGET LANGUAGE.
I am in Mexico from a month .. it's very tough for me to have a conversation with people in Spanish..
I am looking for a Native American (USA) language partner. I'm Brazilian and I'm learning English. if you want to learn Portuguese from Brazil and want a language partner let me know. my skype is: luisfragaklock
Following raw food diet will help you!

Makes sense if you think about it. What I feel people never think about is the fact that when kids are learning they have no choice and they are completely looked after and no one yells at them for saying it wrong (well sometimes but it usually involves abuse). If I lived in a house where someone only speaks Greek I’m going to learn it out of necessity.
It’s virtually impossible to even go a few days not speaking English let alone a year when you live in Canada and nobody can speak anything but English around you?
You need some words to get started.
There may not be person to speak with that speaks the language you are working on.
I studied Russian in school. I have no friends that speak it.
لماااااااذا لا توجد الترجمة باللغة العربيه Why these video not translate in Arabic ??
some languages are easier to learn, some are not, so I think the 3 months it is not enough
One simple technique to start mastering any language right now: stop messing about on YouTube watching videos about learning language and just do something – ANYTHING – that directly exposes you to the language. Even YouTube videos! 😉
I don't see how you can learn a language without using your mother tongue unless the target language was using Comprehensible Input (see Stephen Krashen's lectures and TPR).
Is the "No Enlish Rule" the same when you try to learn English?
Hi, I am from Bangladesh. I want to learn English. Can anyone help me to learn English.
wow. simple and fantastic method to learning languages. I am korean. These people have good pronunciation and speak in korean well after 12 weeks.
I sat in the plane flying to Italy and made a promise to myself that I would never say 2 phrases – “I don’t speak Italian” or “do you speak English”Because English was NEVER on the agenda I have now far surpassed all my Italian friends here that speak English. Had I even spoken English to them on Day 1 it would be almost impossible to then switch. If I had to do something like go to the doctor – the night before I would learn all the phrases I needed and then use them – biggest thing I learned was that if you use your new vocabulary in context you remember it. I agree with everything these guys have said. I also studied basic grammar from a book, used Pimsleur, Michele Thomas, flashcards and YouTube native speaking videos. I am nowhere near fluent (Italian grammar is diabolical!) but I have been here 1.5 yrs and go about everyday life and social life with no problem.
The direct study of English vocabulary or any language's vocabulary really works. Study words and phrases at the right level and you will have success.
Hello guys,Awesome video. But did you actually learn foreign words,how did you memorize them?
What are you supposed to do if you can't go to the country? Try and speak the language to my wife who doesn't speak it?
Films and music work for me initially, then I find someone I can speak with. If not..I speak the language to my dog. Also just beginning to use the "as you sleep" methods. WOW…The binarual sound waves in the background? Reach the language center of my brain I think. I wake up "thinking' in the language I'm studying. This really works for the "let's talk" side. Now…reading and writing? Another issue lol.
The problem is on learning. People dont know how to learn and the teacher dont know how to teach.
I am a native speaker of Spanish and I can help those who want
From personal experience of learning languages (although learning foreign languages has always come easy to me and because I love to learn in general – Spanish, Mandarin, Taiwanese, and Levantine Arabic)), I completely agree with your methods. Learning by necessity and using translator tools is one of the fastest ways to learn.
The polyglots LIVED in the countries whose languages they speak best.When that's not the case, is an EXCEPTION.Yes, there is much hypocrisy in the "polyglot community".They always talk about books and courses etc, and, as an afterthought, as if not important, there is the information in small letters: "I lived there (the country in question) for one, two years".There is even a guy the sells books teaching about how to be "fluent in 3 months" HAHAHAHAHAHAH.
I have no fear of speak my language target, I fear of not have a topic to talk about, I have difficult time trying to find a topic even in my own laguage. I have hard time to find the correct words to express myself in my own language too. I think is because my social anxiety. What did the guys do to find people who where willing to interact with them in the countries they visited?
I thought it was normal to speak more than one or two languages, the rule in my house is speak every language that makes up your dna, speak tsalagi our tribal language but we have a little blood from neighboring tribe so know basics in chickasaw too, habla espanol, fala Portuguese, know basics of Arabic cuz small percent of family before mixed with Arab ppl, drop of Irish so Gaelig and for fun Korean and mandarin, but wolof is the language some friends from the Gambia so speak it also mandinka so get basics in that but friends from 2 other tribes are like family so know those,its a lil of what seems allot but it's great and everyone can learn and im wanting to study Vietnamese, so the neighbors probably think we have a packed hostel for tourists ,they must hear all the changes in vocal tone, everything, but agreed don't be scared to speak up in a different language and be happy it's not mandatory like in this family lol,
Good tip. I'm learning german and I'll try this method. Thank you, guys
I really wanna learn japanese because of my heritage. And french because its so pretty. I did some basic rosetta stone with both and took some japanese classes but need to restart learning them. Goal is japan in june. But we will see.
Who want to be my friend in learning French. I'm beginner. We can be partner. Please comment below.
Excellent…good job. Thank you
I'm native from Ecuador (Souht America) and speak Spanish, but I want to teach English. Somebody who want to teach me English and I can to teach Spanish? 😀
so i'm just here watching tons of this videos on how to learn languajes instead of actually studying lmao
The reason that American businessman these two guys were talking about didn't learn Korean even though he was living in Korea for 20+ years, was married to a Korean woman, had kids with that woman, is because he spoke in English with his wife and did everything in English, which ruined his chances of learning Korean. Yes, he was hearing natives talking to each other and was listening to them (probably, I don't know a thing about this American guy, just speculating), but he wasn't speaking Korean himself. If he was trying to speak Korean from Day 1, he would have been fluent in under a year. 100% exposure and immersion with your target language is the key to fluency ONLY if you try to actually use and speak it.
So they learned through osmosis?
How many times does the color violet come up in conversation, in a context that you understand in three months?
Enough so you can speak it when needed?
No, the traditional learning methods are still required. Immersion helps with speaking and listening but they totally glossed over vocabulary building and grammar.
Thank you! I will start this next week. 🙂
Zezé di Camargo fala inglês muito bem.!?
Plain and simple, it takes 100 percent dedication
Screw my marriage career and mortgage. I’m going to move to brasil.
bs you did not learn mandarin and become nearly conversationally fluent in 3 months lmaoooo
the foundation to a language is the verb….learn two verbs…to be, and to have….as well as a few pronouns, and the five questions wh, what where when and how…and you are off to the races….and vocabulary….numbers and diagrams…
hey where is your one simple method…
Thank you! In my case is No Spanish Rule.
Hello, I need someone to teach me English, I can teach Spanish
I did learn Spanish indeed that way they are proposed (without knowing that this video exists, I founded only today) . I found a Spanish tandem and right after the start there were an only-German part (for the other person) and an only-Spanish part (for me). My no-German-rule I didn't break , but sometimes I cheated with English resources, e.g. to learn the Spanish grammar.But even this is not necessary. Now I try as a self-experiment to learn French only with French resources. No German-French-dictionary as little as possible. Rather I try to use definitions in French.There a lot of very good french sites in the internet to learn french. I'll we see if it works or not 😀
Thanks! I’m going to try it.
Thanks for sharing!
I understand this “ No English Rule “ .I am learning German right now…
What about grammar???What about basic sentence structure??
I am totally agreed with you.. forcing yourself to speak it is the most efficient way…
Waiting for your reply…..
9:00 also fluent in italian
It starts being rewarding around C1 level lol
An inspiring talk ever for language learner! Even the rule seems simple, it affects quite obvious.
So, lets say I want to learn Russian, or Polish, or Swahili, I don't have any "friends" who speak those to help me. So, your method might as well be the most difficult. While I dont want to diss what you are saying, step one involved overcoming an obstacle Before I start. I that nukes it right there. So if we only used your method, instead of Lots of people raising their hands they had tried, there would be far fewer, because most of those people are trying to learn in isolation. And thus, if you can come up with something for those who want to learn in isolation, then you have something.Let me also add, that while this method may be great, it still requires TIME from other tasks in a person's life. Many start learning with good intentions then life gets in the way. After all, the 2nd language isn't putting food on the table. So, extraneous time drains need to go. And that means, the 2nd language learning for most. And that is something your method just cannot overcome.Otherwise, interesting approach. Thanks for sharing.
They list me at move to the country thing .. some of us have jobs , responsibilities, school, kids 🙁
I have done this with Spanish and what they say is basically correct. For an “easy” language you should be “functional” at a pretty basic level in three months but you won’t speak well. Also imo you should study the basics of the language before going abroad. And it’s a good idea to do a thorough review the grammar after becoming conversational. That will help you tidy things up.
As a 3 month Chinese language learner , you definitely do it very well!
Who are you teacher:
My teacher is TED VIDEOS
Excelentes recomendaciones. Tener la necesidad de sobrevivir en un ambiente desconocido, te obliga a sacar su máximo capacidad en el aprendizaje de idiomas.
100 % inmersion. my problem is watch telenovelas in my free time. ?and when my american hubby get home ,i am using spanglish "te extrañe all day long baby and want give you muchos besos" I have dinner unas ricas enchiladas and your michelada"
My native language is Spanish, Someone wants to practice with me?
Gus are Captains Evident Idea, that's been about 100 of years around)) Exactly Rossetta Stone. Continue funding their travel plans.. .
Good vids!! I think you deserve way more views.
Vaya, por lo visto, estos chicos creen que han descubierto la inmersión lingüística.
I don't have someone to speak Korean with, I'll use the no-english rule on my teddy bear ㅜㅜ
Thank you people are way to interested in hearing their voice.
wish i could get a friend to learn german with
I wish the audio was better!
i think this method works because you already express yourself so you learn what you need for this process
Cheap microphones, especially the one on the left, very hard to hear. PS. also sounds very artificial.
"Don't speak in English." – That's fine, I'm German.
Chinese is my mother tongue. They spoke really well in the video
~13:45, oftentimes, in the US, people don't appreciate being forced to teach someone of a different background their culture. The presenters (forgot?) to mention that one should ask one's colleague's if s/he wants to engage. Otherwise, entitled assholery is the baseline of said "classes." Good info, guys… except for the entitlement!
The white dude kinda looks like Claude speed
After 3 months in each nation, at the end of the year. How was their retention?
How to learn English without English?:)
Thank you a lot..
I'm Chinese,i wanna learn Japanese and I can speak English,anyone can practice with me
Fear of being humiliated or making a mistake pushes people back. That is why they don't even use what is in their stock. As a result they give up learning a language. But the solution is simple: feel free and don't be afraid of making a mistake.
Why's it always chinese lol, i'd love to learn norse, bulgarian, russian, french, german
Doğru düşünceler, bu arkadaşlara katılıyorum.
Its all to do with confidence, nothing more nothing less
I completely agree. Most of all one must communicate in the target language and turn off the native language. I use the method of no other language at the exception of the target language and it worked in just three months; especially the oral part.
Well, I'm half the way I loved the concept of no-English. I liked that they mentioned that being in a country where your target language is spoken is not always how we think (people sometimes don't learn the language anyway) BUT coming to travel to 4 countries in 3 different continents, the biggest I WISH.
If he only learned Mandarin for 12 weeks, his pronunciation is actually really good!
How to learn any language:- The answer to this is – create a group on whatsapp / other messenger app that you use frequenty.Remove the people whom you added to the group and by assuming that someone is listening to what your saying, start writing whatever you learn about that language + record words, sentences, etc. in your own voice.
I need a person to practice my English, I'm native spanish.
Some people can never learn another language. Like me.
Try Writing in the language and use Google translate for words you don't know it does the same thing as what thee guys are saying just without another person it won't be exact sentences but you get the main words quickly atleast
I am in france its almost 6 years gone but still today i cannot speak french properly
