Chances are if you’re looking to learn English, you probably want to do it as fast as possible.
The truth is, if you want to learn English fast, you need to dedicate a lot of time and effort to your studies. This means learning on your own time. To help you gain fluency as fast as possible, here are some tips.
Find English podcasts or YouTube channels
The great thing about podcasts and YouTube is that you can find content about almost any topic. Choose something you are interested in (sports, cooking, sewing, etc.) and subscribe to a channel in English. You can listen during your commute, a workout, or any downtime you have at home. It may be frustrating in the beginning, but after a while, you will begin to pick up on new vocabulary and pronunciations from native speakers that may be different from what you are learning in your classes.
Follow English-speaking people on social networks
Social media presents a unique opportunity for language learners. It is a stream of unique content that is updated every day. It also offers insights into how English is used by everyday speakers. You can choose to follow friends, celebrities, or influencers. What you will find is that you will begin to pick up on phrases and words that you wouldn’t hear in everyday speech or in your classes.
