What’s the question English learners often ask me?
I want to improve my English. What can I do?
Let me start by saying that there’s a lot to do, but you can’t do everything simultaneously.
Here’re my suggestions:
- Define the strong and weak points of your fluency. Let your strengths motivate you while working on your weaknesses.
- Once you know your weaker points, set up your specific goals for improvement.
- When you know your goals, mark the date in your calendar- when you are going to achieve them.
- Next, make sure you start learning with a positive mindset, repeating this time you’re going to progress.
- Expose yourself to the language as much as possible. Watch movies with subtitles, listen to English podcasts, read in English – the Internet is full of free resources, so you can use them.
- Keep your journal – note down new words, and don’t forget to add emotional value to everything you put down. People remember emotional experiences better than emotionally empty.
- Practice 25 minutes a day. Craft your short speeches and speak out loud even to yourself, especially if you don’t have a language partner.
- Listen to native speakers, imitate their pronunciation, or do shadowing while listening to podcasts.
- Recycle books – which means using the books you bought some time ago, don’t buy new ones; you will get overwhelmed.
- Don’t learn long lists of words by heart, you’ll forget them sooner or later. Put theory into practice; this is the only way to make them stay with you forever.
- If you prefer to get a clear direction and support from me to implement every step, enroll for my academy. The door opens on 14th August- you get access to the content, but registration starts on 7th August. Send me a DM if you wish to join, and I’ll take care of the rest.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Have a gorgeous mid-summer day:-)
