253

What does it take to pick up, or get used to another language from scratch—to get it up the point where the rest is simply maintenance—and improvement—to an intermediate level, say?

It boils down to what takes getting used to, whether that’s the sounds, the alphabet, the vocabulary, the word order, a different set of patterns (grammar), and maybe the conventions to do with how that language is used.


I really feel that for a language close to English it ought to take about a month of an hour a day. I really should test that out.
