3 Tips for Successful English Fluency – How to Study

These lessons notes will give additional support to today’s video lesson, as well as supporting links!

1. The first tip for you to have more success when you are studying English is to have an accountability partner. An accountability partner is somebody that helps you stay responsible while achieving your goal. Don’t try to achieve English on your own, combine your energy with someone else for more English success. There is always someone trying to learn English, so connect with that person. Even if it’s not in your circle. It can be someone you met on a Facebook group, for example.

Having an English studying partner is going to make learning more fun and more engaging for you. What I recommend is to connect with someone who has a similar goal. For example, someone who studies business English like you do, or someone that is going to travel or study abroad. Having a partner, setting dates to meet and talk about your goals, and complete your tasks helps you avoid procrastination. When you have a partner you can not leave him waiting! Moreover, find a partner to learn and have fun with.

2. Do not ONLY use English materials made by English teachers for English learners. Use materials created by an English native speaker for an English speaking audience. What I mean is that when you read an article, one that is not made for people learning English and not designed for English learners, you have the opportunity to hear (and see) more natural English. These types of materials are not going to force you to learn something. It won’t use potentially irrevelant vocabulary, or outdated language.

If you need to practice your listening skills, go for podcasts, TV shows, movies and even music to listen to native speakers talking to other native speakers, because they are not trying to make you learn, they are made for you to enjoy.

If you need conversational English, you need to listen to conversations. Podcasts are a great way of listening to natural conversations, especially one that have 2-person interviews! You just have to find a topic that is interesting to you and relevant so it is easier and more pleasant to learn. Here is a list of podcast recommendations:

3. There is an expression: “If it is not broken, don’t fix it”. This expression means that if something is currently working, don’t try to make a change. But this is the opposite of the third tip for today. If something IS broken, if something is NOT working – fix it!
Let me ask you something: What are you currently doing to learn English? Is this working? If these methods are not working for you to improve your English fluency, then, it’s time to change it.
Think about how you can learn differently, how you can learn outside of the box. Traditionally, to learn something, you go to the school. But, because of technology, you can change the way you are learning if you need. If the way you are studying is working, keep going. But if you are feeling frustrated, if you are not happy with your level of English, then do this little exercise:

 

  1. get a piece of paper and write down what you are doing today
  2. write why it’s not working or what you are not happy with (regarding your English)
  3. think about what you can do to change that, and do it!

By following these 3 tips, you are setting yourself up for more successful studying in English, which will help lead you to more successful fluency!
