It seems that YouTubers are around to give advice on learning a second language with tips to follow to become proficient in speaking the language. But, learning a language cannot be capsulized by learning pieces of language hoping that the bigger picture will fall into place.
When thinking of second lanugage acquisition, people should know that a path has to be walked step by step, one at a time. With each step automaticity has to happen or a gap is created. It is the gaps created by language tips from people oversimplifying how to learn that cause a person to learn a language incompletely. Gaps are also the reason people give up eventually. Step one on the path to fluency is to make sure you understand the bigger picture and achieve it with each step you take.
Once an understanding is in place, then the first level is to begin simply with words to build a vocabulary and phrases that most resemble the structure of your own language. This process never stops while you are learning,
There aren't really any "levels" to language learning although many methods make you think you graduate from one level toward that final level of fluency. What actually happens is that people have a focus as they begin according to their interests, background, and educational experience. Fluency doesn't happen the same way for people. Some people really need to see how a language structure works. Then they begin learning by shifting what they know of their native language to the structure of the new language. Others want to learn a great deal of vocabulary before branching out to the grammar parts. Still others like to have model sentences, so that as they learn, they can begin substituting words into the models. And, there are 100 more combinations of how people want to begin learning.
However, as people start, they have to learn three systems well within the new language to become fluent. The first is how to express the aspects of the verb system. The second is to know the placement and/or the inflectional system of nouns and pronouns. The third is to learn the descriptive system because that system is the first way to learn to express emotions in a language.
After learning words and structure, a person adds the intonation and stress patterns of the language. This helps people not to be condescended to by the native speakers as an outsider. Acceptance by the native group happens more quickly when one tries from the beginning to use the stress patterns and intonations of natives.
The L2 difference is that we follow this path to fluency and know that nothing happens well in language without a native speaker being present. We certainly give you access to that, and it completes your guidance perfectly. Join us at L2 Fluency and acquire your long awaited language and speak to new friends.
The path to fluency is always a mix of the elements that mark your progression. Rarely does a person learn by compartmentalizing the learning process into distinct steps or levels. Also a mix of reading, writing, speaking, and listening opportunities speed the process of language learning to its brilliant end.
