Learn vocabulary by heart.

Learning Vocabulary by heart means you should stop cramming your head with the translation of English words in your native language. No matter how many words you memorize everyday – 50, 100, 200! – they’re all useless if you don’t know what type of word you’re learning, how to use it in a sentence etc. … Non-native speakers of English are known for mechanically memorizing a lot of information. But in terms of the long-term goals of language-learning, it isn’t so much the quantity that counts, only the quality.

Accept what can’t understand.

Eventually, you’ll have to admit that some expressions and parts of English don’t have the perfect grammar explanation that you are looking for. For instance, idioms, infinitives vs. gerunds etc. You’ll just waste a lot of time trying to force a logical, iron-clad rule. Of course you should try your best to learn Grammar, but keep in mind that grammar doesn’t have the answer to everything. In those cases when Grammar doesn’t work, start repeating the sentence and expression. Pretty soon you’ll realize you’re getting comfortable with it and you don’t really need a grammar explanation to use it.


STOP looking for a “silver bullet” technique that will let you learn English overnight. There is no such thing. Every learner is different. What works for you won’t work for another and vice – versa. There are too many English-learning techniques out there that promise the best results. But what it all boils down to is: You as an individual learner. Do you have what it takes – the dedication and the patience – to get to the finish line?
