English is a fun language, and while it's considered accessible and relatively easy to learn, with 750,000 words and spelling that can baffle even the most experienced learner, learning English quickly can seem impossible. But I'm here to tell you that as long as you have the right strategy, that's not the case.
Here are our top tips for learning English fast:
1. Read as much as possible about everything
Classic literature, paperbacks, newspapers, websites, emails, your social media feed, cereal boxes - if it's in English, read it. Why? Well, this content is going to be full of juicy new vocabulary, plus a lot you already know. This helps you improve quickly as revisiting learned vocabulary provides you with new examples in context, thus reinforcing those words in your mind. On the other hand, learning new words and phrases is essential to building your vocabulary arsenal, especially in a language like English with so many words! however, don't just read and move on; then you should actively take note of new vocabulary.
2. take note (new English words and expressions)
This tip is classic for a reason: it works! When we're learning, we often get so excited about a new word or phrase that it seems impossible to forget. But trust us, not everything sticks the first time. It is recommended to get in to the habit of carrying around an notebook or using a tool like Evernote. Every time you hear or read a new word or phrase, write it in context: that is, in a sentence and with its meaning included in the note. This saves you time because you don't have to go back to that word and ask yourself "What did that word/phrase mean again?"
3. Talk with people daily
What is a language for if not to communicate? Of course we humans have become experts in communicating without opening our mouths, thanks to WhatsApp! – but when you need to use language to communicate, it's true that speaking a language helps it stick in your head much better than just reading or writing it. Just think of how many times you've heard people say, "You understand, but you don't speak English." Many aspiring English speakers have turned speaking into a giant insurmountable barrier that just baffles them. Do not be like that. Find native speakers for an informal language exchange, sign up for a class or take online courses.
4. Subscribe to podcasts or YouTube channels (in English)
Do you like humor? Politics? Car new? cooking? With topics to suit every interest imaginable, there's an English podcast or YouTube channel for you. Subscribe to a few and listen to them while you drive, or watch them when you commute to school or work. Native accents may be difficult at first, but don't stop and you'll soon understand what you're hearing (and learn a lot of new vocabulary from a native speaker!)
5. travel to English speaking countries
If there's a better way to learn English than immersing yourself in it while living and studying in an English-speaking country, we'd love to hear about it! It's no secret that English is the most widely spoken language in the world, with a long list of countries. To choose from, you can choose your ideal learning environment based on hemisphere, weather, or your favorite city. Think Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA, Canada, and South Africa to name a few!
6. communicate with your friends
Do you have friends who post online in English? Don't overlook them in your newsfeed — scan the articles they share and commit to scanning one or two every day. It can be news or magazine articles, videos, lectures, blog posts, songs, or anything else: if it's in English and you're interested in the topic, it will work for you!
7. Ask questions as much as possible
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it also made the language learner become fluent! As you learn English, you will quickly accumulate a mountain of questions. enrolled in a course, ask your professor (after all, that's what they're there for). But if you're learning on your own, don't worry: find answers on language blogs or websites, ask other learners, or read on forums. .You’ll be happy you did!
8. learn from your favourite celebrities
Combine your learning by choosing an English-speaking actor or singer that you like. Now go online, find some interviews they have participated in and watch them. Words You hear, The jargon, stories, humor, and anecdotes that are expressed in these interviews are sure to give you plenty to work with!
9. Start with what you really need
You can learn English much faster if you constantly remind yourself of your reasons for studying. Do you want to go on a study exchange? Then focus on study-related vocabulary. Do you have a conference abroad? Work on common conversation to open and end a presentation. Are you going on a gap year? It seems that travel and tourism vocabulary will be your guide. If you’ve just started learning English hoping to magically learn anything and everything all at once, you'll probably end up confused and exhausted.
10. Don’t kick yourself while you’re down
If you feel stuck, which happens to all students at some point, don't say, "I don't speak English" or "I'll never understand that." Actually, remove these phrases from your vocabulary list! They only impede your progress you are making and convince you that your dreams of speaking English well are impossible. Instead, say "I'm learning English and I'm improving every day", "It's not always easy, but it's worth it", "I'm much better than I was six months ago" and other phrases to remember.
