It is no secret that English language is one of the most common languages around the world and maybe the most famous and used one. I know it might be hard for new learners to learn it, but today at the English Language Club (@englishlanguage.club) are going to share with you 8 useful tips on learning the English language. So here we go:
- Conversation is the key
If there is a “secret” or “hack” to learning a new language, it’s this: hours and hours of practicing with people who can speak the language. It might be a bit hard in the beginning, but it will be a lot of fun.
- Surround yourself with English
You don’t need to be in an English-speaking country to surround yourself with English. Find ways to make English part of your everyday life at home, like writing your shopping list, reading the newspaper, listening to the radio, writing a diary in English, or listening to English on your cellphone while traveling to work.
- Make English-speaking friends
Even if you don’t live in an English-speaking country, there are probably many foreigners living nearby. Find ways to meet English-speakers: going to foreign bars and restaurants, joining sport and social clubs, or arranging language exchanges. You could even volunteer as a guide at a local tourist attraction to meet English-speakers from all over the world.
- Find study partner
You don’t s need native speakers to practice your English. Find a study partner, or find an English club and meet regularly to speak English. You can motivate each other, and you will learn by helping others with their problems.
We at the English Language club on Clubhouse provide you with and amazing opportunity to practice your English with great native and native like speakers.
- Use authentic materials
Just reading English in textbooks can get boring. Try reading English texts written for and by native speakers. It will be a challenge at first but a lot more interesting once you can do it.
- Get online
Get online and you can be in contact with people from all over the world. Join chat rooms or forums.
- Set yourself realistic goals
Give yourself a reason for studying: do you want to get a promotion, be able to talk to your foreign colleagues, study abroad, or spend your next holiday in an English-speaking country? Set short-term as well as long-term goals, and keep track of your progress.
- Listen to real English
Train your ear by listening to English spoken at normal speed, even if you don’t understand everything. Also practice listening without seeing things written down and don’t be afraid to listen to things several times to catch any interesting or unusual vocabulary in there. It’s easy to find free English podcasts online and news agencies from most English-speaking countries have audio and video news available for free online.
These are our tips for you and remember, “It might be a very long way to achieve your goals, but it is always worth it”
