Seeing movies and watching television serials in that language is a more practical way of learning a new language. This will help to understand conversations and to respond.
For learning the alphabets, the practical way is to glance through newspapers and magazines and read the advertisements of popular products and also where the name is given in that language and English or a known language.

I appreciate the author for penning the easy ways and tricks to learn other languages easily. What I observed is that we must allow the children from the young age to mingle with the children speaking other languages so that they can freely express their views and learn the other languages from the basic.

Watching movies along with subtitles can be of great help in better understanding of a language. Through movies one can not only learn right pronunciation of words but they can also learn different sentence formation with the help of subtitles. It's been observed that in many languages sentences are not exactly translated as they are spoken. And also movie dialogues mainly use day to day words and sentences, so watching them can be very beneficial in getting command over some other language other than your mother tongue.
