10 Ways to Integrate Learning a Foreign Language Into Your Daily Routine
1. Speak As Much As You Can in Your Target Language
No matter how much you read in your target language, you’re only getting half of the experience. You’re learning how to associate the written words with the right translations in your head, but you’re not learning how to pronounce them.
Try saying things in your target language out loud. For example, if you’re reading an article in the language, read it out loud. If you’re listening to a song, you can sing along. You can even speak along with practice programs online, or read aloud from practice text books. Speaking with a native speaker is usually the best way of practicing, but these techniques work well too.

And, they’re always adding more materials, so you can continue to learn and develop your language skills.
