How To Learn English

    How To Learn English!

    Here are some tips which may help you to master the English Language!

    Speak without Fear

    The biggest problem most people face in learning a new language is their own fear. They worry that they won’t say things correctly or that they will look

    stupid so they don’t talk at all. Don’t do this. The fastest way to learn

    anything is to do it again and again until you get it right. Like anything,

    learning English requires practice. Don’t let a little fear stop you from

    getting what you want.

    Use all of your Resources

    Even if you study English during trainings it doesn’t mean you can’t learn outside of class. Using as many different sources, methods and tools as possible, will allow you to learn faster. There are many different ways you can improve your English, so don’t limit yourself to only one or two. The internet is

    a fantastic resource for virtually anything, but for the language learner it's perfect.

    Surround Yourself with English

    The absolute best way to learn English is to surround yourself with it. Take notes in English, put English books around your room, listen to English language radio broadcasts, watch English news, movies and

    television. Speak English with your friends whenever you can. The more English material that you have around you, the faster you will learn and the more likely it is that you will begin “thinking in English.”

    Watch English Films and Television

    This is not only a fun way to learn but it is also very effective. By watching English films (especially those with English subtitles) you can expand your

    vocabulary and hear the flow of speech from the actors. If you listen to the news you can also hear different accents.

    Listen to English Music

    Music can be a very effective method of learning English. In fact, it is often used as a way of improving comprehension. The best way to learn though, is to get the lyrics (words) to the songs you are listening to and try to read them as the artist sings. There are several good internet sites where one can find the words for most songs. This way you can practice your listening and reading at the same time. And if you like to sing, fine.

Study As Often As Possible!

    Only by studying things like grammar and vocabulary and doing exercises, can you really improve your knowledge of any language.

    Do Exercises and Take Tests

    Many people think that exercises and tests aren't much fun. However, by completing exercises and taking tests you can really improve your English. One of the best reasons for doing lots of exercises and tests is that they give you a benchmark to compare your future results with. Often, it is by comparing your score on a test you took yesterday with one you took a month or six months ago that you realize just how much you have learned. If you never test yourself, you will never know how much you are progressing. Start

    now by doing some of the many exercises and tests on this site, and return in a few days to see what you've learned. Keep doing this and you

    really will make some progress with English.

    Record Yourself

    Nobody likes to hear their own voice on tape but like tests, it is good to compare your tapes from time to time. You may be so impressed with the progress you are making that you may not mind the sound of your voice as much.

    Listen to English

    By this, we mean, speak on the phone or listen to radio broadcasts, audiobooks or CDs in English. This is different than watching the television or films because you can’t see the person that is speaking to you. Many learners

    of English say that speaking on the phone is one of the most difficult things that they do and the only way to improve is to practice.

    Finally

Have fun!
