As some people said in their comments, moving to the country where the language is spoken 24 hours a day, is the best. However, that's not possible for all.
In my humble opinion, and only from my experience, reading out loud books (newspapers, magazines), is the best way to learn a language.
Then there are billions of tutorials on YouTube. Some are so, so funny!

Good luck!

Yes, you will surely learn some new language Skills by "reading out loud books, newspapers, etc." But if you want to speak a language fluently, then there is no substitute to moving to the Country where they speak that language and immersing yourself in the language and culture of the Country where that language is spoken.

Cincinnati, Ohio had an alternative school system, which allowed a child's parents to choose the neighborhood school or an alternative. This was used to replace the forced busing.
Among the alternatives was a school for the creative and performing arts and at least one school, where every subject was taught in a foreign language.
One school, near to where I then lived, was K-8, with every class taught in French.

Move to the Country whose language you wan to speak. This is the fastest and best way.
You can try taking classes too, but that leaves you in huge disadvantage as far as accent goes.
As the last and worse choice you can try one of the online language classes.
Bottom line, as everything else spend wisely ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

How cool is that! And yes that is for sure would lead to best way to learning these languages. But of course most of us do not have such privilege and instead we need to learn a language by taking classes.

YouTube videos and reading out loud newspapers will do the trick if one is determined enough.

Most children can learn up to three languages without straining their brain. I know a young man who has an English mother, a French father, and a German Grandmother. He spent the first 15 years of his life in France, where he learned English, from his mother, French from his father, and German, from his Grandmother.
Amazingly, he does not only speak those three languages fluently, he also uses the three different accents perfectly!
Kind regards,
John Romer

Generally, when you learn a language from one person or in one geographical location, the ambient accent becomes part of your new language.

The real privilege is to have been born in the U.S., where you can pick the course of your education.

Oh really! How about having the privilege of being shot in one Mass shooting after another in USA, such as the 17 students just massacred in Parkland Florida. Or are you too stupid or blind not to know about the mass killing of American People from Sandy Hook to Vegas to Parkland Florida, under Democrats and Republicans, to which mass killing of American People these bozos do nothing about!

Furthermore, typical College costs like $50,000+ in USA while it is free in France, Germany, Italy, etc.

Ackee, Until the time comes, when the Democrats relinquish their death grip on the educational system they will continue to be culpable in these murders.
They will keep killing children until their Nazi-like lust to disarm ALL Americans is sated.
Even a moron, like you, can see that the left would do anything to have their way.
If you can get a free education elsewhere, please go for it. Whatever you got here certainly isn't working.

I see the basement dweller mentality at work again. Of course, such mentality is to be expected from people swilling at the public PIG trough with all of the other PIGS.

Just because you do not pay for YOUR FOOD STAMPS does NOT mean they are free. Just because you do not pay for YOUR FOOD STAMPS does NOT mean that college is free.

Learn this and learn it well - NOTHING IS EVER FREE, EVERYTHING ALWAYS HAS A COST!

The only "basement dweller mentality at work again" are you Trump Republican lunatics. After all you freaking Moron College is FREE in Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, etc. for the Taxes their People pay. So just like we Americans Pay Taxes but we get nothing for our Taxes but War after War after War and Billions sent to Israel the puppet master of Trump/Obama/Clinton; People in Germany, France, Sweden, etc. get FREE College and many other social services for their Taxes. A***e Zionist traitor :(

Ackee, you have all the information you need. As badly as you need an education, you should catch a flight to Europe tomorrow.
Just think, it will be a win, win, win.
You finally get an education, mmerlinn and I don't have to spoon feed you facts anymore and your Mommy gets her basement back. Just like I said win, win, win!
As an added benefit you will find no problem finding a Nazi group, to join, over there. Perhaps your lokaler Fรผhrer will send a letter of recommendation
Hurry! Get packed.

No you are a classic Trump Republican lunatic, aka the True Enemy within, by saying the Republican right-wing Media super SCAM on US that:
"NOTHING IS EVER FREE"

As if our Taxes, such as the $32,000 in combined Taxes that I paid last year, was FREE. So whereas in UK, Canada, Germany, France, etc. countries doing great their People get FREE Healthcare, College education, etc. for such Taxes, we Americans get ZIPO for same Taxes but our Taxes send to Israel and War after War.

accuallan, these Trump Republican lunatics are hopeless. That is as you have done here and I have done on Million occasions, you can provide a Mountain of Facts based on which Facts all developed Nations have socialized healthcare where their People get healthcare FREE for Taxes they pay, and then the f***g Moron will turn around and say a non-sense such as "NOTHING IS EVER FREE" as if the 10s of 1000s of Dollars of Taxes we pay per Year are FREE! They are Fox news brain washed or WORSE.

Salivator, you LIE again. All developed nations do NOT have socialized healthcare as you stated above. And apparently your cognition is so low that you have no concept of what the word 'free' means.

Dave_Saliva, apparently you studied to be a scatologist, which explains why you and your statements are so full of it.
If you believe that the U.S. wastes your tax money on bad decisions FRANCE is the place for you.
There you will get the education, you so badly need and your tax money will be used more wisely, like to help refugees to become good citizens or require an extensive background check to drive a truck.
Besides Mommy, do you need any help to pack.

dave_silva, you see what lunatics or worse traitors these Trump Republicans are.

To Tomat, you want to run like the coward and enemy within that you Trump Republican slimes are, you go ahead and run to France or to Israel that you all love so much. I and real patriots like me will stay and fight for our Country USA to be really Great again, which requires our Taxes invested in our People and our Cities rather than wasted on War after War and sent to your beloved Israel.

Acculyin, apparently the person who normally reads to you has quit. Unless you count collecting a welfare check, you have done nothing for the U.S.
You wouldn't be constantly bashing the U.S. if you didn't love Europe much more. Why don't you and Davey hook up? You could see your forever country together. Remember to join the NHS, as soon as you arrive.
Be careful you might be expected to go to work when you get there.

Aky, I am confused here. Why in the world would you want to stay and fight for something you want (and maybe die in the process) when you could move to a place that ALREADY HAS WHAT YOU WANT? Wouldn't it be much easier (and probably less fatal) on you and all of your future descendants to move to such a place, then fight to MAINTAIN the status quo there rather than bring whatever you want here?

1st, Moronn, this question is about:
"What is the best way to learn to speak a foreign language?"

2nd, we need to save USA from the True parasitic enemy within that has taken over the body of this Nation, via the control of Wall Street based Media, resulting in ultra right-wing lying Machines of Fox, etc., resulting in our Taxes wasted on War after War for Israel rather than spend on Social services for American People/Nation as successful countries of Norway, Germany, France, etc. do.

Acrimonious, you are correct about the subject of this post, so WHY have you been deviating from it and why are you upset because others are replying to YOUR OFF-SUBJECT posts? Hypocritical mayhaps?

Why waste time saving something that CANNOT be saved? If you and everyone else abandoned ship and moved to your respective havens, you could watch the collapse from the SAFETY of your haven, then return later to pick up the pieces and do it 'your' way without endangering yourself in the process.

AccuLyin', YOU are that enemy. You have been indoctrinated and dumbed down to the extent that you can't tell your left from your right.
Antifa and other anarchist groups ARE the far right.
The media (MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, NPR etc.), socialists, Democrats, progressives, Nazis and the Klan are all products of the left.
Republicans and libertarians are in the very center of the U.S. political spectrum.
You and the other minions are just programmed left-wing trolls, nothing more.

So keep your answers, to this question.
Oh I am sorry, you are Republican lunatics and can never deal with facts of any sort, even what the subject of a question is!

Here is where AccutePain decided to go into his usual stupid rant and change the conversation.
"Oh really! How about having the privilege of being shot in one Mass shooting after another in USA, such as the 17 students just massacred in Parkland Florida. Or are you too stupid or blind not to know about the mass killing of American People from Sandy Hook to Vegas to Parkland Florida, under Democrats and Republicans, to which mass killing of American People these bozos do nothing about!"

Yes, I totally agree with that.
On that note, I see you are from LJUBLJANA - Slovenia.
And I have always been wondering about something: what languages do you speak there? I mean the country is like 2-Million People. So it makes little sense to have own language. So do you speak English or German or what as the real language?

Duh, there are hundreds of languages, maybe over a thousand, that are spoken by fewer that 2 million people so why wouldn't Slovenian be a viable language? There are many dozens of languages spoken by fewer than 100,000 people. Maybe you should widen your horizons a bit accuallan.

Immersion in a country that broadcasts, prints and speaks only in its own language. The U.S. fosters segregation and lifelong ignorance, by pandering to people who REFUSE to learn English. With the exception of the very old and the very young, people who have not learned conversational English after being here 5 years and fluency after 10 years, should face deportation.

ThomatOurStore, in typical European Nations from France to Germany there are 100s of 1000s of Americans who barely speak any French or German.

And look at what a bozo you are, you have been a member of Anoox network since: 2015-11-08, a network that as a non-profit depends on donations of us members, but you have made zero donations as listed under your Bio. So what we should do 1st is to Deport illiterate Republicans such as you.

Are you suggesting that you bought and paid for the right to make foolish statements on Anoox? I will contribute both common sense and truth, free of charge.
Anoox approached me to participate in these "encounter groups". I quickly saw that most here, lacked real-world experience, decision-making skills and logical minds. So I am doing my best to help you all, without charge. You are welcome.

I suggested that then president, 0bama set these as his 5 step immigration plan:
1) Secure the borders.
2) Augment border patrol with the military to keep up training.
3) Deport all illegals presently on U.S. soil.
4) Tie residency and citizenship status to English proficiency and deport those who wonโ€™t learn.
5) Put a Muslim Exclusion Act in place, to address irreconcilable cultural differences.
