How is it like to study languages?

German, probably one of the hardest languages to learn. While other people struggle with it in school, Anže went a step further and started to study it. Along with German his studies include English and Slovenian too.
When Anže talks about his studies, the key word is discipline:” The secret of getting through the university is to stay focused; you really have to be motivated and learn every day.” His best learning strategy is to read lots of books or watch movies with English or German subtitles. Active talking is another aspect, which helps Anže to improve his skills.
Anže has to focus more on German than English, because he didn’t learn German from a young age. He started to actively learn German with 14 years. “Even if the language is more logical and has more strict rules than English, it’s hard to learn German without the active part; it’s hard to find someone to talk German with.”
Anže is finishing his bachelor’s degree and wants to study further. “In your master studies you can choose between two options; either you focus on interpreting or translating. I am going to choose the translating option.” In contrast to interpreting, in the translating area you have to work more with the written words than with the spoken ones.
Even if his studies are difficult and need a lot of discipline, Anže knows his ways, how to learn and motivate himself and fights his way through the studies: “If you are interested in languages and have a lot of discipline you can make it and have a lot of fun along the way!”
