I want to show you the best ways to learn English

1.Talk to yourself

2.Dont translate into English from your own language . Think in English to improve your fluency. You will find words easier to remember if you try to remember an example sentence using that world rather the word on its own .

3.Be confident

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes . 

4.Speaking

The best way to learning is through speaking. Surround yourself in English. Put yourself in an all English speaking environment where you can learn passively . 

5.Establish a routine

Make yourself a study plan . Decide how much time a week you are going to spend studying and stick to it .

Tell your friends and family about your study plan. Get them to push you to study and also don’t let them interrupt you . 

6.Form

When you learn a new word , think of all it’s other form , like : Beautiful -adjective , Beauty -noun , Beautifully – adverb.

7.Core skills

Practise the 4 core skills . Improving your reading , writing , speaking and listening .

8.Keep a notebook of new words you learn .

13.Procrastination can stop you from being successful . To stop procrastinating , it’s important you understand id your procrastinating is to avoid studying , or if it is your bad habit .

14.If your English is still basic , or lower intermediate , than don’t try to read the New York Times yet! It will only discourage you . Instead , look at resources such as VOA Specula English News where you can listen to new stories in clear , slow English . 

If you’re an intermediate English speaker , reading children’s storybooks or Wikipedia in Simple English might make you feel confident if you understand every word.
