What Are the Keys to Learning English Well?
You can go a long way with learning English with these keys.
English is one of the most important languages in the world. This beautiful language is everywhere as it is estimated that over 1 billion people are learning English worldwide at any one time. To study English well, there are key things you should consider.
1. Know why you want to learn English
Before you start or go back to studying English, ask yourself why you want to learn English. Is it because you want to? For the best outcomes, studying English should be something you want to do.
2. Set goals and create an agenda
If you know why you want to study, it is easy to set goals. For example, perhaps you want to travel and work in an English speaking country. Then your goal might be to choose an ELICOS course like General English (GE). General English focuses on developing the English language and communicative skills needed in a range of everyday contexts. Whatever your goals, write them down and make an agenda to achieve them.
3. Make a commitment
Learning English needs a lot of motivation. Once you are ready to begin studying, stick by it until the end.
4. Realize that you can be good at English
Anyone can be good at English, and you can, too. Race does not matter. Gender does not matter. Age does not matter. As long as you maintain motivation and take English easily, English is easy indeed.
5. Don’t mind what other people think
Some people are shy to speak English because others think of them as being a show off or because others say their English is not good. Don’t let what others think stop you achieving your potential. Take every chance you have. Speak up and be proud to speak English. At Scots, we encourage ‘English Only On Campus’ to reinforce English learning in a safe and proactive manner. That way our students can learn to speak English and think in English.
6. Have fun learning English
“The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” (Pearl S. Buck). If you are not having fun studying English, you are not learning the right way. You can be a serious student while having fun at the same time.
7. Take your holidays abroad
Save money, create your abroad travel itinerary and go to your favorite country. Enjoy the trip and utilize this chance to speak and perfect your English. One of the most preferred options is to travel to Australia and attend a premium quality ELICOS course. ELICOS courses are open to all international students, or those on working holiday or visitor visas.
