  • Ways to learn English 2013-08-27T22:43:00.000-07:00
    Being unable to speak English fluently can cause a lot of embarrassment and nervousness, be it when you are with your friends or in a professional environment. You must have even seen that some people may not be very good at their work but their ability to speak good English has taken them places. You surely do not want to be left behind in today’s competitive life just because your English is poor, do you? And the good news is that it is not as difficult to learn English as you had thought! It just requires two things to become a pro- an urge to learn and persistence.

    Of course, it is important to learn the language but the catch here is that you also need to apply what you have learnt in your day to day life. Let’s see how this works:

    To read: You have to develop this habit if you wish to speak English fluently. Spend a little on books; buy books of a genre you think you will like. Be receptive to learning new words, new idioms, phrases etc. The moment you spot a new word, find out the meaning and try remembering it.

    To listen: Keep your ears open. Listen to your colleagues or friends who speak good English. This way you hear quite a few words that too in a short period of time. The more often you hear a particular word the easier you will find it to use when you are speaking. You can even listen to an English radio channel or play an English teaching DVD while doing your day to day activities like cooking, eating, or driving.

    Through writing:
    Make a special notebook just for noting down the new words you have read. Read the words you wrote the previous time while you note down a new set of new words the next time. Write a paragraph, everyday, about just anything- an incident, an emotion, a dream etc. This will help you to use the new words you have learnt.

    Through speech:
    If you are not very confident about your language and feel awkward to speak in public, read aloud when you are alone. This is the best way to learn a language. Because you are reading it out from a book, the English is perfect and the chances of you listening to or learning anything wrong are minimal.

    The ways mentioned above are sure shot ways to learn English. But there is also a fun way of looking at this!
