The more you know, the easier you learn. Is it true as far as a language is concerned? Really? Not always. But it is exciting perspective! Isn't it? It is not about remembering more and more words, expressions, adding a new vocabulary to the existing one, which demands continues repeating and revising and represents a continues effort to maintain and keep what you already know – not to be forgotten. Despite the fact, that in most cases it is this way, there is here an another, a different approach. It is to see the language as MOSAIC. The lexical units are the pieces of a broader picture, the whole which represents not only the collection of that pieces but IS much more than that, because it has a MEANING. That picture, that mosaic represents the meaning expressed by the language, is created from those pieces. If you have a mosaic, you do not need to know all pieces to figure out the picture – the meaning. And it works vice versa too – you can “easily” figure out missing pieces (meaning of unknown words in our case) from the broader picture, mosaic (=context). This way you can learn, and this process is natural way of learning new vocabulary. In addition to that, you can also notice some grammar patterns and you can find that some words go together (collocations). You learn them too. Naturally. This “mosaic” approach significantly improves your understanding – it is instantaneous, without any internal translations, no need for mixing languages anymore, no need for thinking about grammar rules, actually there is no need to think at all (“about” language) – just communication happens! So, isn't it nice? Yes! You can ask: “But how to achieve that?“ And it is the relevant question! I will explain it, but not now. Think of it, maybe you are going to get it! The hint is: we do not have only a logical mind.
