I know this sounds dumb, but actually study and do practices. For most languages there are actually free apps that can help - repetitive repetition actually helped ingrain words and phrases into my brain.

I got to the point where I knew enough words in Japanese without any phrases that my mind automatically put together the sentences in songs and such LOL

But the main factor is, how new of a learner are you? Like do you already know colors, numbers, random things like cat, dog, etc?

Watch shows in the language you want to learn. That's what I did for English, I watched so many videos in English look at me now! Imo it's the best way to learn!

Real talk though, never would have guested you weren't a Native English speaker.

Like Jiyubi said, watching shows is a good way. If you're trying to learn a language like Japanese, or Korean those are quite easy to come by at least.
What language is it if you don't mind me asking?

Oh well then I would watch some Kdramas if you don't already with subs on. Also there's an app I have for Korean, but I forgot what it is. LOL Just look on the app/play store and you should find some free hangul resources there. I'm also trying to learn Korean, but I speak Korean with a Japanese accent according to my Korean friends, so we've got a long way to go. I guess pronunciation is hard for me pffft LOL

I agree with @jjyubi and @Melon - watch some Korean videos or K-dramas. The way I know the Korean birthday song is from watching BTS celebrate each other's birthdays. And RM became fluent in English by watching Friends!

its actually korean :wonwooglasses:
there are a lot of guides to writing and reading on youtube itself, I'd say go through those first and then watch tv shows and look for vocabulary.
I used this one, could read and write pretty well after it
