How to Make Learning English a Part of Your Life
Posted By Victoria On February 28, 2012 @ 4:32 pm In Uncategorized | No Comments
Most people who learn a second language  find that there comes a moment in which they start to think in their new language without translating the words from their mother tongue.
This is a natural progression but there are some things you can try to do in order to attempt to make it happen more quickly when you learn English. One of the best ideas is to make the English language form a greater part of your life in the following ways.
Think About How You Think
At first you will need to make a real effort to think in your new language. It is a strange feeling for anyone to not be able to attach words to their thoughts and ideas. However, the more you practice this the more comfortable you will be thinking in English.
Speaking to people on an informal basis is another terrific way to learn more words and improve your listening skills as well. You can do this online or you can look for real life friends who live near you and who speak the language you are learning. Either way is good although you might prefer the internet based approach until you feel confident about speaking to other people face to face.
Do Things in English
No matter what hobbies you enjoy you can probably do them in English. This could mean using the internet in English, watching films in English or reading books or magazines in that language. Once you have done this for a while it will seem a lot more natural to you. Don’t forget that each of these hobbies will give you different benefits, so you should try and vary them as much as you can.
Undoubtedly the best way of immersing yourself in English is by studying it in a country where it is spoken as a first language. There are lots of classes to be found all over North America and once you are there you will find that it becomes a natural way of speaking for you fairly quickly. For example, if you want to learn English lessons, Calgary  is one of the many great destinations you could choose from. Cities with big immigrant populations are popular choices with those students who want to feel at home while they are learning English. For this reason the English lessons with native teachers that Miami  offers are always highly sought after.
