The Most Useful Tips To Improve English for Adults, Newcomers, Students
How to learn English easily
How to learn English, easily, at home, and effectively? This is what you will discover in the following lines. Be careful, this method is the opposite of the school method. It is also the opposite of methods that promise miracles quickly. This is a realistic approach, certainly the fastest of all, but one that requires a complete rethink of your learning. You'll have to immerse yourself and do English all the time. But first, why do you want to master English? You may have a family member abroad or a business need. Whatever your reason, English is an opening to the world. Did you know, for example, that only 4% of the world's Internet pages are in French, while English pages represent 55.1% of the world's web? If you learn this language, it's like instantly unlocking access to millions of pages and information. What is true on the web is true elsewhere... especially in the professional world. English can really change your life. Beyond that, 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. This is exciting.
Adopt the right attitude
The problem is that we believe that English is like cycling. It's well known: cycling can't be forgotten. That is not how it works at all. We can never say "That's it! English, I know", and move on. You will be able to progress and reach an exceptional level, but there will always be new things to learn. We will always have to work on English and maintain it. It will never really stop. That's what makes it exciting!
Set the right goal
So to be effective now, start by clearly defining your current goal. Where do you want to get to in the first place? What level do you want to reach? If I were to formulate the most common goal of my students, it would be: Reach a fluid level of conversation and no longer be afraid to speak in English.
That's a very good example of a goal to start with. What's yours?
It should be noted that the second part of the goal is not directly related to your level. It is more about the unconscious fear of making mistakes and embarrassing oneself. But we'll come back to that later because there are effective solutions for that too.
What helped me, my click to learn English?
For my part, I really improved in English from the moment I made my first trip abroad. The trip itself helped me, but above all, it gave me a trigger that made English a passion. Then I discovered fascinating English-speaking authors. It forced me to read in that language. Then I traveled, lived in England, worked in Ireland. This has allowed me to improve even further. But the trigger was the passion aroused by the first trip. In all my students who are making rapid progress, I find these two key elements: passion, or enthusiasm and practice, immersion, in daily life. These students are passionate about English. They do a lot.
