Learn English even without going to school

Learn English Even Without Going To School
Josh Fishy | 12-19-2015

The fact that English is the universal language, everyone ought to get the hang of it, otherwise some people could hardly get the drift of what you want to say if you visit their places where your language isn't spoken nor understood. And what's more, you don't have any familiarity with their dialect either or any other languages except your own.

English is the universal language

While many have thought that English could only be acquired in school alone, some have managed to become proficient in it even without having to go through formal schooling.

With patience, determination, and following what we recommend below, anyone can speak and write English as fluently as native speakers do.
  1. Get a bilingual dictionary. For beginners, a dictionary that translates your native tongue to English and vice versa is an indispensable tool that anyone who wants to learn English must have in hand.
  2. Read a lot of English reading materials. This is the best way to learn English if talking to a person who can speak it isn't available. Reading enriches you with expressions and vocabulary that may come in handy when engaging in a conversation or when writing down your ideas.
  3. Make a list of English expressions. This is one secret technique some good writers have been using to improve their writing style as well as their oral communication skills. At times, there are expressions that are right on the tip of our tongue, but having the list in hand you don't have to wait and squeeze your brain for them to come to the surface.
  4. Prefer watching English films, news, etc. We all learn our first language by listening and imitation which are still applicable when we want to learn our second language. Though indirectly, the more you are exposed to hearing and seeing people speak English, the better your command in the language would become.
  5. Keep a daily journal notebook or a diary. Your readings wouldn't matter if you don't put your learning into motion. Reading and writing are intertwined. Wide readers are good writers and the other way around. For the sake of improving your English, writing any thoughts that pop up in your mind helps you keep track of your progress in grammar, choice of words, and a whole lot more.
  6. Try as much as possible to speak English. Even if it takes you to talk audibly all by yourself, do it if your goal is to learn English and be good at it. Like reading and writing, listening and speaking are also closely connected so that those who take time to keep their ears open tend to become good speakers, but your patience won't pay off if you don't give voice to what you have learned from listening.
