If you've ever wondered how children can seemingly pick up on English faster than their parents, here's why. Children do not have the fear and anxiety that adults have concerning the learning of a new language; the biggest barrier to most adult English learners is a fear of failure. They are anxious that they will not be able to pronounce words the right way or that they will make mistakes and others will ridicule them. As is true with other things in life, practice is essential in learning English. You should practice as much as possible and learn from your mistakes.
Even if you take classes to help you learn English, there are many other resources you can use to learn the language quickly. There are many sites on the Internet that offer English classes for almost nothing, along with worksheets and practice exercises that complement the classes. If at all possible, rely on an English-speaking friend for assistance with practice and the various nuances of grammar. The best and quickest way to learn English is to immerse yourself in the language; if you are learning in your native land you should try to watch comedy shows or listen to comedy radio as much possible. You will be learning quick, in a very fun way! However, the best avenue to take is to live around English-speaking people.
Doing that will leave you no choice but to learn English! Take notes, read and listen to English-speaking music. Speak it as much as you can, and as your language skills develop you will begin to think in English. As we mentioned before, watching English movies and TV is a great way to learn the language. If your television is equipped with closed captioning, you can watch programs in your language and read the words in English at the bottom of the screen. You will improve the flow of your speech and heighten your vocabulary.
Another good way to learn the rules and vocabulary is to watch educational programming for children, or to use beginning reader books in English because these typically come with pictures that illustrate the words. Listening to English music is a quick way to learn the language; study as often as you can. As you read in English, record your speech and listen to your pronunciation. Then when you play the recording back, you can see where you need to improve or where you are doing well. Taking the above steps will make it much easier and faster for you to learn English.
