4 Linguistics Books to Read for Language Learning

Just like how history books and science books explain a concept or event, linguistics books provide you an understanding of what’s going on while learning a language. They give you a heads up of the things you might encounter during your language acquisition journey. They offer theories, activities, tools, and techniques which are effective for learning any language. If language learning feels like you’re in a haze, the following books will simplify the process for you.

“How to Learn a Foreign Language” by Dr. Paul Pimsleur

Written by one of the pioneers of foreign language learning, Dr. Paul Pimsleur originally published this book in 1980 and was released again in 2013. The lessons in this book are timeless and relevant today since they reveal the causes of why students experience difficulties when learning a foreign language. The struggles they experience are mainly caused by unnecessary classroom drills which should be rectified. Dr. Pimsleur suggests that teachers and learners should focus on listening and responding, as they make the language acquisition process easier. Learning a foreign language should be similar to how babies listen to their surroundings and respond by imitating tones and rhythms that they hear. This is just one of Dr. Pimsleur’s effective approaches to foreign language acquisition in his book that stood the test of time.

“Learn Any Language FAST! – The Ultimate Guide to Speed Up Your Language Learning Curve By Tricking Your Brain” by Dagny Taggart

Learning a foreign language in the fastest way possible is essential, most especially to travelers and immigrants. With that, Taggart, who happens to be a traveler herself, shares the techniques on how to quickly understand and learn languages from the people she meets around the globe. She recommends that traditional approaches to language acquisition should be eradicated, instead, learners should focus on unconventional and fun ways to easily pick up a language. If you want quick and effective strategies to language learning, then you should check out this masterpiece from Taggart.

“Fluent Forever: How to Learn Any Language Fast and Never Forget It” by Gabriel Wyner

Gabriel Wyner reveals that language acquisition should be fun to make it easier to remember and learn. His book comprises of effective activities and suggestions that will surely overcome linguistic obstacles and improve fluency. For instance, one of the activities teaches you how to adapt your ears to the natural tones of your target language so that you’ll be able to recognize it when you hear it. Another activity allows you to produce sounds and tones similar as those made by native speakers. This requires you to twist your tongue in the same manner as opera singers and actors do while performing. With these fun techniques, learners would find this book useful for language acquisition.

“Words and Rules: The Ingredients of Language” by Steven Pinker

Written by a linguist from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Pinker explains how we learn languages and how we harness them to make ideas and experiences. From a simple love letter to a complex tax code, he demonstrates that language acquisition is based on rules. If you are serious in unveiling the mystery of a language, you are guaranteed that Pinker’s book has all the answers to your questions.
