We know that the English language is one of the most spoken languages in the world and learning it is a difficult task. That’s why we can give you some useful tips whether you are in an English-speaking country or in your own country:

  1. Buy a monolingual dictionary for beginners because it will help you to keep thinking in English and avoid comparisons between English and your first language.
  2. Write down all the new words you have learned and train yourself by using them in real life. You will remember a word forever only if you use it seven times in seven different contexts.
  3. Use post-it notes and stick them around your home using them to label things.
  4. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes when speaking English, be confident! Making mistakes is the best way to learn new things, above all if you have people that can correct them.
  5. Think in English to improve your fluency and do not translate from your own language.
  6. Idioms are the best way to make your English more colorful! The most challenging thing is to understand their meaning going beyond the single words.
  7. Sing your favorite lyrics because learning English songs is the best way to improve.
  8. Newspapers are a good aid to find more difficult grammar structures.
  9. When you read, remember that you don’t need to understand every word, but look for the general meaning. Then go back and look up new words.
  10. Watching English movies and TV can help you to practice your listening and to understand the different English accents. You mighttry using subtitles at first, but when you feel more confident, turn them off.
