How to learn English quickly, here are a few tips from a professional

It’s no secret that many students think English is a difficult language. Often, younger students lose hope when studying English because they think it’s too hard or too time-consuming. However, what many people don’t realise is that it doesn’t have to be this way. If taught using specific methods, students will quickly see that English is actually a wonderful language with a unique history making it a very interesting subject to learn. So, as we have already looked at how to make learning English easier for students, today’s special mission is to go through some simple tips on how to speed up the process of learning English.

Some professional tips on how to learn English quickly

To learn English quickly without sacrificing good results, there are 5 essential tips to follow:

  1. Listen to a lot of English. Listening promotes the development of what experts call unconscious learning, a process which occurs when the brain unconsciously absorbs information and rules simply by listening to the language.
  2. Make a note of all the words you don’t know. Every time you don’t know the meaning of a word, the expert’s advice is to make a note of it – maybe have a designated notebook – and then use the new word in a sentence.
  3. Talk to lots of people. Talking with any English mother tongue friends, acquaintances or teachers will give you an extra advantage to learning the language as you will have direct exposure to people who speak English “naturally”.
  4. Subscribe to English podcasts or YouTube channels. Given that we spend most of our time online, you may as well spend that time doing something useful like studying English; by listening to content creators, influencers or any speaker on a topic you find interesting, you will have access to a different branch of the language: every day or colloquial English.
  5. And last but not least, travel. All the experts agree on this one: there is no better or quicker way to learn English than to go and live – even for a short amount of time – in an Anglophone country.
