How to learn English fast: top 10 tips

English is an interesting language to learn. All the world desires to learn this language. There are many reasons, for example, getting a better job, promotion or travelling abroad or making new friendships across the globe. If you want to meet new friends to chat and talk to and practice your English, all you need to do is to find a language exchange partner on Skype.

 

Here are our How to learn English fast: top 10 tips:

1   1.Read every day and consistently: 

       never stop reading, but the question is what should I read and at what level?

First of all, test your English level , then now let's talk about what each level should read.

Whatever your English level is, you need to read about something you are interested in--that will keep you moving.Some like to read English novels while others like to read short English stories. There are many things you can read such as classic literature, paperbacks, newspapers, websites, emails, your social media feed, and food boxes. Whatever you can find in English,read it.

1.1 My advice for beginners of English:

is to read short stories--they are simple and easy to understand to build your English vocabulary. I also advice you to study 4000 Essential  English vocabulary  series made by Paul Nation. I use them to teach my students the most important vocabulary they need to know.

1.2 My advice for intermediate levels of English:

is to read stories that are long to learn more vocabulary. You can also start to read novels if you wish,or magazines,or whatever interests you.

1.3 My advice for advanced levels of English:

Now, you're able to communicate in a lot of common topics. Now what makes you different than other levels is to read about uncommon topics,maybe medicine or engineering to learn vocabulary that we use in our daily spoken and written English but only those who are at an advanced level of English-- can use those words really well. Learn more idioms and phrasal verbs; don't forget to learn collocations.

2. Take notes while reading:

just reading isn't enough to retain the new vocabulary in your head so that you can remember them later. First I'd like to say, read for fun,then read for learning. Don't take notes the first time you read something.However, after finishing reading, take notes by writing the new vocabulary that you saw in your article. Not only writing them,but using them in your own sentences. Use a dictionary to help you out. I advise you to use Oxford learners dictionary or Cambridge. There are many English dictionaries,of course, you can use. For example Macmillan,Merriam Webster,and Longman dictionaries.  

3. Speak to someone in English:

Language is like math. If you don't use,you will lose it--that means,you remember the words and sentences by using them in real-life situations. If you can't find someone to talk to, we have brought to you Best Websites similar to speaking24 for practicing English 2021. Practice English every day.The more you speak,the more you will get better. Also if you want a private English tutor for online English courses,they will help you a lot to learn English.

3.1 Many students ask this question:

 3.1.1 Should I only talk to English native speakers to improve my English? 

The answer is --No.
Anyone whose English is better than yours, will help you to improve your English.Most English native speakers are busy and don't have time to conduct free lessons with you.Their classes are usually expensive.So, don't waste your time and use the websites mentioned above. If you have good money, then why not talking to English native speakers,they will help you a lot.However,that is not the only solution to this problem.

4. Subscribe in YouTube channels for learning English :

Like fun? Politics? Blogging? Cooking and food? With topics that covers every interest that you can imagine, there’s an English-speaking podcast or YouTube channel out there for you. Subscribe to a few channels and practice listening while stop driving for breaks. At first, you might find the native English accents difficult to understand but stick with one accent and you’ll soon start to understand the other accents. It’s okay to learn some informal English to keep up with the new English words spoken among English native speakers.


5. Travel abroad:

If there is a better way to learn English than being   living and studying in an English-speaking country, you would love to know—There’s nothing to hide that English is the most widely-spoken language in the world.  You can select your best learning environment based on hemisphere, weather, or favorite city of yours. Think about  Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the US, Canada, and South Africa to name a few! Study the culture first, their traditions and costumes before living there. So you wouldn’t get a culture shock.


6. Make Friends Online:

Who is going to encourage you learn the language rather than your friends. Having friends around to keep you moving,and learning together, is the best way to learn English daily.For example,friends on Facebook,Instagram,twitter,linked-in, and other social media platforms. Add friends that are more likely to write posts in English--not your native language. You're making friends because you want to improve your English,right. With friends,you can sing together, write together,read together,and much more than that.


7. Ask many questions:

I must say this. You learn English by asking and practicing. Students that are afraid to ask questions,are less likely to learn faster than those who ask many questions. I,personally, have asked many questions while I was a student.So, it's crucial to learn more by asking suitable questions related to the topic or lesson being given online or in the classroom. Ask questions,and take notes of the answers.


8. Imitate and act like them:

Many of us watch English series and movies,probably,every day. Why not imitating the actors you love! emotions help you remember. By imitating and acting, you link your emotions to whatever you're learning--that is very useful to remember.

9. Sing a song:

In my classes,I ask my students to sing songs with me. We are not the best singers in the world. We are doing this for fun and learning.It's important to keep that in mind. Learning should be a fun process,not something you have to do for an exam.So singing will help you to reduce your accent,and even mastering a new accent. Sing songs with lyrics.

10. Don't let yourself down:

A lot of students have started their way to learn English,but they often stop in the middle of their way. Ask yourself why you started to learn English. As long as you have a goal, you will always try to do your best to learn. Don't listen to those who disappoint you. Keep learning. Thank you for reading this article.
