IELTS Essay Correction: Learn A New Language Through Culture And Lifestyle Of The Country.

In order to learn a new language well one should get to know the culture and the lifestyle of the country where it is spoken. To what extent do you agree with this idea?

40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Answer:

Today, in the era of modernization, people learn multiple languages for various reasons such as migration and employment. Undoubtedly, it is good to be aware of the culture and lifestyle of the country of origin to learn its native language. However, it is not mandatory to have the specified knowledge this is not mandatory to be fluent in the language as there are other sources such as the internet and live coaching classes for this purpose.

1. Use a referencing device to refer back to the previous idea. THIS. “IT” does not refer back to the previous sentence. This will also help you avoid writing ‘specified knowledge’ which does not refer to ‘culture and lifestyle’.

Opinion not clear. “Undoubtedly it is good. But this is not mandatory.” What is your view? If you agree with both to a certain extent, please state the middle path clearly.

I believe that though it is better to learn about the culture and lifestyle of a country to master its (= country) language, a person can gain a fair amount of proficiency without this (= culture and lifestyle) knowledge.

To commence with, it is always beneficial to stay in the respective a country to learn its language. As one comes to know about the culture, tradition, and modus-vivendi, he attains much knowledge and deep live experience of the place (does this help in linguistic development? – 2). Moreover, by communicating with the native people, it is easier to grasp the grammar and pronunciation of that particular dialect. (lacks proper explanation – While a dictionary can help a person learn a language in general, it can not teach local terms and phonetics. For example, Hindi is spoken in entire north India. However, it has more than a hundred dialects in various regions such as Punjab, Himachal, Jammu, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh. A foreigner can not master these dialects without understanding the culture of these regions.) For instance, when people migrate to the USA , they come to know about American English and become proficient speakers by interacting with local people and reading their journals such as newspaper and magazines. (The example should focus on the IDEA – DIALECT. See the example of India above. Example of USA: For example, while there is an Americal style of English, the dialect of the English language is different in the Northeast part of the country and in Southern regions. A person from New York must understand the culture of Texas to master the English language’s dialect in Texas.)

2. As one develops an understanding of the culture and traditions of the people, she learns the local slangs and the context in which the words are used. Without this exposure, she can learn the words but fail in using them in the right context (setting).

However, I strongly believe (No. You don’t strongly believe this. You strongly believe in the middle path.) that a foreign language can be learned anywhere if the internet is accessible over there. In highly technological world, it is possible to search and learn online wide extensive online material such as its spellings, alphabets, and dialect related to any language such as its spellings, alphabets and dialect (These are not the examples of a language, but examples of MATERIAL.). Also, online lessons are available on many apps applications which take and respond live queries (which entertain live queries). For instance, Youtube can offer thousands of videos in any language alongwith the special tutorial lessons.

To conclude, I partially agree with the given statement as in today’s scenario, it is not compulsory to be a part of a particular culture to get excellence in its language since world wide web acts as a powerful and reliable tool to acquire expertise in the same.
