3 Ways to Learn English from Home:
- Don’t only read, start with audio: Don’t
invest too much time in just reading if you don’t know the sounds
of English. It’s common for people to start with just reading but
they don’t use the audio to go with what they are reading. These
students end up having strange pronunciation because they use the
sounds of their native language. If you do this, it will be a huge
waste of time.
- Listen to things that you understand: Start
with English audio that you understand but can’t use quite yet.
Don’t focus your time on English that you don’t understand. Once
you understand something once, you need to see it again and again
and review it. You need to see it used in different contexts and
see it being used by different people. It takes time to acquire the
language. It’s a process. Don’t jump ahead and skip over
words that you think you already know.
- Start small: If you are busy and don’t have a
lot of time consume English in small chunks. Fifteen minutes a day
is great. Take small steps. Listen to English while you are
doing something else like cooking.
