How to Learn English: Finding the Right Way for YOU

At some point in your English learning journey, you’ve struggled. You’ve probably thought that it’s too difficult. Other people in your English class have gotten better grades than you, so you think that you’re just a bad language learner. You’re good at other subjects, but learning English isn’t your talent, right?

Wrong. You’re not a bad language learner, you’ve just been learning in a way that isn’t right for you.

What is the Right Way to Learn English?

So what is the “right” way? This is an extremely common question, and the answer might seem obvious: it’s different for each person. We all learn differently.

You need to experiment with your language learning process to find the perfect regimen for you.

Everyone learns differently—some learn well from textbooks, some are really good at memorization; others need hands on learning (learning from experiences). Any good English learning routine is going to include a combination of all of these.

Although knowing some basic grammar structure can help you speak English more correctly, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can speak it better. The fact is, most native speakers don’t even know the grammar rules. We learn to speak through interaction (the same way you learned your first language).

Create a Better Daily Language Learning Routine

studentIf you learn best with structure, then learn the grammar rules. If you find that grammar rules just make English too confusing to even speak, then throw your textbook out the window (as long as it doesn’t hit anyone in the head!).

As I said above, you need to find the right combination of language learning techniques to create a perfect routine that allows you to practice and effectively learn English daily.

Here are some suggestions of different ways to learn English, all of which are easy to do a few minutes each day. With the right mix of these you will find yourself learning English faster and more successfully:

     1. An English Teacher-

Can you push yourself to learn and practice English everyday? If you don’t have the will power to do this, then you may want to seek out an English teacher or tutor (if you don’t have one already). No matter what level you’re at, a teacher can help answer your questions and clarify confusions.

You can find a private teacher or go to an English school. There are also dozens of places where you can get classes via Skype, like here.

If you go this route, I recommend that you find a teacher who focuses on conversation and listening, rather than on memorizing grammar rules, but remember to find what works best for you!

     2. Learn with what you already love

This is by far one of the most important resources in your English learning regimen (we call it Lifestyle English).  Watching TV, movies, and listening to music and podcasts can all help you improve your listening skills, learn new vocabulary and expressions, and become skilled at speaking like a native, while learning about culture at the same time. Lifestyle English can help you to become really engaged in English learning.

      3. Online English learning programs

There are dozens of free programs online for English learning. These are a great option if you can’t afford a teacher, or if you want something to compliment your classroom lessons.

In Conclusion:

It’s important to learn English doing things you already like to do. No matter what methods you choose to add to your English learning routine, you need to make sure you practice it every day. The more you can make English part of your life, the better you’re going to be at it!
