Hey Peter,so as I mentioned before I have many tips to share with you. Here is one of them.
When I started learning English, it was just another school subject I had to pass. The schooling system in my home country taught me English in a very analytical way.
What do I mean by that? Well, we studied English as if it was mathematics. 🙂 Most of the time we studied grammar rules and did boring exercises. As a result, I could explain loads of grammar rules, but I was unable to use them in real life.
Luckily, I liked English so much that when I got home I watched many English videos, read articles, listened to English podcasts and started making friends with foreigners online. I learned English in a practical way.
Soon I realised that my English is improving and I can actually use it without thinking about all the grammar rules.
So here’s the message I would like to share with you today:
When you learn English, it’s useful to understand grammar rules. But, don’t focus on them and don’t overanalyse them. Instead, expose yourself to real English – do whatever you like but do it in English – listen, watch, read and communicate. 🙂
Here are three simple actionable steps you can do right now to start learning English in a practical way online 🙂
- go to google.com
- search for videos, articles and blogs that you are interested in (if you like cars, search for cars, if you like cooking – search for cooking, and so on… 🙂 )
- immerse yourself in the content and don’t worry if you don’t understand everything
Don’t treat English as something you have to study. Instead think about learning English as a natural fun activity. 🙂
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tip. There are definitely more to come. Thanks, and best of luck to you! Cheers!
