This is what you will discover in the following lines and in the future articles. Be careful, this method, which will be explained and covered in several upcoming posts, is the opposite of the school method. It is also the opposite of the methods that promise miracles quickly.
This is a realistic approach, certainly not the fastest of them all, but one that requires a complete rethink of your learning. You will have to immerse yourself and practice English ALL the time.
But first, why learning English is so important?
You may have a family member abroad or a professional need. Whatever your reason, English is an opening to the world.
If you learn this language, it’s like unlocking millions of pages and information instantly. English can really change your social and professional life. Besides, what a fabulous feeling to speak a new language. You will discover a different way of thinking, a new culture, a new world, a new adventure, isn’t that exciting!
Generally, the advantages that come with learning this language are many, valuable, and varied.
Now let’s start by these easy steps and keys (you may call them Advice) that will give you an idea about how you should prepare yourself for the journey of learning English.
Learning English is a step by step process
Learning a new language has never been a piece of cake. That is the ugly truth. So take your time and progress “step by step” (one step after another).
Bear in mind that we can never say “It’s done! I know everything about the English language” and move on. You will be able to progress and reach an exceptional level, but there will always be new things to learn. You should always work on your English and maintain it. Actually, That’s what makes the thing exciting!
The First key
Start now, and give yourself 3 to 4 months to progress. If you do, the results will be phenomenal. However, it is not a question of getting into a week and stopping the next one. Aim for continuous improvement, putting yourself in work regularly and genuinely.
Ideally, you will enjoy it and then it will become a habit. You can also make a small personal lesson plan.
Set the right goal
So, to be effective, start right now by defining your current goal and ask yourself: What level do I want to reach?
If we had to formulate the most common purpose of the students, it would be: To reach a smooth conversation level and no longer be afraid to speak in English. This is a very good example of a goal to start with! so which one is yours?
It should be mentioned that the second part of this goal is not directly related to your level. It’s more about the unconscious fear of making mistakes and getting embarrassed. Don’t worry, there are effective solutions for that and we’ll cover that later.
The second key
Follow your passions and interests. Follow your enthusiasm!
Watch the films of the directors you love, with your favorite actors, read the books of authors you like, follow blogs, newspapers, podcasts, forums that interest you…
Are you more interested in fly fishing, playing quizzes, wakeboarding or 80s music?
Whatever your area of interest, if you read, listen, write on forums about topics that you like, it will be so much easier!
See the world
In most countries, English is the language most spoken even though it is not the native one. In fact, you can travel around the world and make acquaintance with people everywhere. You can actually improve your English from the moment you make your first trip abroad. The trip itself will help you refine your English, and the more you travel the better your English will become.
The third key
Force your brain to think in English, and to be in touch every day, every week, with the language you are learning.
If you are in the learning phase and you can’t travel to other countries for some reasons; However, you want to progress quickly enough, I recommend 3 to 4 hours per week in contact with other students or even native speakers on the net (There is an article about how to practice English online, check it out and learn how to start an instructive conversation with native speakers online.; talk about a film you have watched, a book you have read, it does not matter, just free your tongue.
Meet English people, think in English, read in English, sing in English, watch movies, discover the culture of English-speaking countries I think that is the most valuable key to better comprehend the aspects of this beautiful language.
