English language: EASY ways to learn – sharing my secrets!
November 5, 2019
Hello my dear subscribers! Today I want to share my tips on learning English language I know many of you dream of having a great English language without accent and this was my dream for many years I struggled to learn things, to learn the accent. Today I want to share my most effective tips that I used to learn English language. Now the first thing You have to have a very specific goal like getting into a foreign university or getting a job with an English language employer but I know on different stages of our life we don’t have these specific goals The target is to make learning English your lifestyle. You can do it by doing many different things like the first thing you can do is super easy is just set your iPhone or android or whatever phone you’re using to English language So you’d see all of those English words every day during your life like send a message, watch a video everything should be in English Maybe you’d think you know all of those basic words but really you’d meet so many nuances you’d remember and it’ll stick to your memory and you’d be able to use them later. The second thing you need to do is surround yourself with English I know this is very difficult. I’m from Russia and not many people speak English here. It’s not like in Finland In Finland everybody speaks perfect English. Finnish people are watching, how do you do it? That’s amazing! But in Russia not everyone speaks good English. There are some people but… It was very difficult to surround myself with English language But now in the years of media and technology we have YouTube And it is the best thing you can do like switch on a YouTube blogger who speaks English and the best thing to do is maybe select a YouTube blogger who is coming from your country because he would still have a slight accent. I have slight Russian accent. It would be easier for you to understand him or her. It would also motivate you because you would see the person from the same background. You’d see him speaking English language without an accent. I watch VitalyZDTv He’s from Russia but he films in English and probably you know him, he’s a prankster and he does a lot of pranks he’s amazing. If you’re from Russian speaking background, watch his video. Another thing you can do All of us have Internet and you can watch news on the Internet If you like American English, watch CNN. You can also read their articles It’s not necessary that you only watch the videos. For British English watch BBC. And I know that some people say than news produced by their country may be biest like maybe there’s propaganda involved. This is a good motivation to watch news in English language you’d get a different view on what’s happening in your country and what’s happening in the world. For many countries this is a problem. So do that, just watch news in English. But make sure that you understand that CNN news are influenced by American culture. BBC is influenced by British culture. Having a video playing on the background for example, I’m watching English language YouTube vloggers when I’m washing up or cooking something. It’s not necessary that I listen to every single word they say but I have this English language background. It really helps. Another thing you can do. Listen to English language songs. This is the easiest part. All of us listen to, I don’t know who’s the most popular now? Justin Biber I know many of you hate him. Justin Biber, Britney Spears all of those names. Pick whoever you like There’s radio one in the United States. I love the music, I listen to it every time in the car and they have the best hits. You can stream it online or you can download English language songs to your phone. Make sure you read the lyrics before you listrn to it. Listen to it for a couple of times. Read the lyrics and then go back to the song. You’ll be amazed how many thing you understand. When you first listen to the song if it’s a n English rap song, You’d hear you wouldn’t get what they say. But after you read the lyrics, those sounds would make sense. Would make more sense anyways. You’d get a couple of words. Please do that and if you want more details how to learn English using songs please use the link below to see how I do that and how best language schools over the world do that. Also remember that we live in the digital age. There’re so many things you can do online. like the most basic thing Google translate When you’re translating words from English into your language. Please make sure you know how this word is pronounced in English because memory is not only our brain, memory is also our eyes, ears, senses. When you hear the word as well, you’d make greater progress remembering it. The second thing you can do when you’re googling a word try to google it in images there’s a special section in Google, called Images If you google for a word there you’d get pictures and icons of that word and that would help you remember the word. I also use stickers like this is one of the best methods you can do place a sticker to different objects in your appratement like sofa lamp, bed. If you’re watching this video, you probably know all of these basic words But try your kitchen. like do you know what buckwheat is? oatmeal wholegrain bread All of those very specific things you’d need when you come to the States. or come to Great Britain you have to know those words. Use your kitchen as a place where you learn like I use containers for grains I just sign them with the words I need to know Another thing you can do our brain is good in remembering things in space You can also use the objects in your room for specific words and it’s not necessary to put a sticker with a word window on window You can put something like admission and then your brain would remember that on window we have something connected with a university. Admissions when you put this weird gear on your face. You use it to learn something. They put you in imaginary room where you can see the objects or words placed on different objects. Use it in real life. Place diffrent words all over the place. There’re lots of apps you can use to learn English Duolinguo is one of the best which is basically for beginners There’s easy ten to learn just words There’re lots of youTube bloggers like me 🙂 If you like my videos or other youtube bloggers who speak English and teach you different sfuff. When you download all the apps to your iPhone, make sure you have a screen for all of those apps So for example my first screen when I open my phone, I see this. I see all of the apps I use every day. My second screen is clear. I only have the apps I need to use. they’re connected with my work. You can do the same with your English language apps. Place them on a separate screen, make sure it comes second and have no more than 6. When you’re waiting for somebody, pick up your phone and and try using some apps You’ll see your target, empty screen five or six apps for English and you’d basically use them to spend your time waiting. I get a lot of questions from people like what books do you recommend to read I’d say if your English is intermediate or pre-Intermediate try children books. I read Jacqueline Wilson the British author, she writes book for children age 12-14. It’s really easy to understand them. The plot is basic. She uses very easy words. Please check her. I leave a couple of books on Kindle. I’ll try and find for you. The second thing you can do is pick up a book written by a guy who speaks your language who comes from your culture. Try to read his books in English. Translation from your own language would be simplier and you use concepts you’d understand. Maybe it’ll also work for you. The best way is to pick a book that captivates your attention the one you’d be reading. whatever happens. Like for me this book is Gone girl This is an absolutely amazing book I enjoyed reading it and and then watched a film. Watch a film first with English subtitles in English and then read a book. It’s amazing, you’ll like it. It’s a bestseller everybody in the world liked it you’d also like it. The most important thing comes last you can forget what I’ve said I’m just kidding. Right now will be the most important thing You have to talk to native speakers. Try to do it every day. At least for 5 minutes. I know an amazing company that does it My company linguatrip.com We help you connect with a person who wants to speak English he can be located anywhere in the world. You need to do is just click a button You’d be instantly connected to that person and you’d be able to speak English to them and ask “how’s he doing today” “what’s he do for living?” “what does he do during summer holidays?” Ask him whatever you want. You can talk to him for 1 minute or you can talk for 30 minutes. It’s really up to you. Please try and do that. Let me know what you think. It’s a really great thing to do. Also you can hire a skype tutor who’s also a native speaker. The difference between the person who wants to speak English and study with a native speaker I mean the teacher that the teacher would be explaing your mistakes and give you some grammar and vocabulary. The price would be higher but it’s good to have feedback. because when you’re just talking to a person They wouldn’t be correcting you the goal would be to make sure they understand you. Try and travel to English speaking countries try and spend your vacation in places where people speak English or speak English well like in Finland Amazing guys You can go there and they speak English. All of them. or Sweden Swedish people are good at languages. Great Britain, USA, Canada Australia, New Zealand whenever you want to go Malta Malta is a small European country where second native language is English. Try and go to Malta as well. The best thing to do is stay with a host. Stay in a host family You can book it by Airbnb or homestay.com or you can use linguatrip.com for booking language courses in country where language is spoken and also homestay we make sure hosts talk to you in English.
