Since you've decided, what time? The first thing to do is ask yourself; What do you want to achieve and by when? Karen Heintz language director at Classic and Sacrum says: It is better to learn a language if you break your goals down into manageable goals that you can achieve in a few months . This is motivating and realistic. Watch out! Make no mistake, you will feel very excited and optimistic, but do not aim to be fluent in a few months, it is a better idea and short-term objective to be able to read an article without having to look up any word in the translator or dictionary.
It may sound pretty obvious, but keeping in mind why you want to learn English is very important. Heintz, who is now learning French, says: Motivation is lost along the way, it is more noticeable among self-taught students. To maintain that energy, he suggests that you write 10 reasons why you are learning English, paste it where you can see and read them, I go to these when I feel doubtful about my learning.
There are very often debates between technology and traditional methods; María Carroll says that this debate does not make sense: the question should not focus on online versus offline or book versus application. Rather we have to focus on gathering the necessary elements of the language to achieve the objective, having these elements the students must find the means to achieve it. Think about the main thing, about the substance that will be behind the technological or traditional method. The important thing is learning, and it is carried within you and not outside, it does not matter if it is in a device, book, computer or a teacher in front of you.
For many who have mastered a language, they saw reading not only for progress but one of the most rewarding moments of their learning experience. Carlos Hernandez argues that reading for pleasure confronts you with a diverse vocabulary that is not found in everyday life, this makes you normalize difficult grammar structures, when you manage to finish a book it is a moment that you will remember for a long time, the satisfaction that you will feel It is monumental, because of this size is the achievement.
Jotting down vocabulary in your notes and then memorizing it is often a challenge and potentially boring. Rocío Huerga of control and quality in Classic and Sacrum, believes that associating new words is key to memorizing them Make sure that the words you are learning come from situations or texts that you have experienced, this is for content is always relevant and connected in the background.
The first myth you will come across for sure is, you have missed the boat to learn English . English teacher and director Karen Heintz argues that children and adults learn a language differently, but this is no reason for adults to abandon their goals. Languages in their form are organic and systematic, adults learn systematically and young ones organically . One piece of information to be inspired by is the early philologists and founders of linguistics who learned dozens of languages at great levels in their adulthood.
Speaking your native language is natural, but that doesn't mean you understand it well. Heintz believes that to understand a second language you have to understand the one you have. I think you should understand how your native language works, it is a fundamental part before starting to learn a new one.
Sometimes when you have reached a certain level in English it is typical to feel that learning is slowing down and to some extent feel stagnant. Translation is an excellent exercise to overcome certain stagnation that you will have as a student, translations do not give guidelines to paraphrase and force you to go to the next level .
This word should be handled with great caution, because it is difficult to handle a definition for such a famous word, as a goal you should handle it with some respect, because it means more than you can see . Learning English or another language is something that never stops because it means personal growth, endless improvement, cultural learning. I think this is where the students go wrong.
Only if you can and are in a position to do so, Carroll reminds us that if you are serious about learning a new language and taking pleasure in what you have learned, you should go where they are speaking English. Traveling is a good way but not everyone can do it, fortunately today we have technology very close at hand, so you can enter to a chat and find who to talk to, growth will be potential.
