Study English after moving to USA

This article is for those who are preparing to move to the the USA and planning to learn English there. We examined the American methods in more detail.

  1. So, the most popular option is free courses for visitors at educational institutions (colleges). It looks like this: 20-30 people of different nationalities are sitting in the class, and a former emigrant (Mexican or Chinese) is the teacher. He speaks a lot in English, writes something on the board and distributes pieces of paper, in which you need to write what he wrote on the board. All this happens in English. This begs the question: how will a person whose language level is 0 understand this? How will he ask a question if he did not understand something? People who have gone through such classes say that they have not learned anything from them. The duration of such courses is 2-3 years, the result is zero.
  2. Someone chooses the most utopian path - “learns by itself”. We will not even dwell on this, because we will not learn.
  3. The third option is paid courses. The main difference from free is that it will smile at you. And that's all. But you will still not understand anything, because your teacher will not know Russian (except, perhaps, the words "grandmother" and "vodka" that make you smile).
  4. Another option (the most difficult one) is to find a Russian-speaking teacher. There are few adults in America with tutors. What for? There are free courses! So if you are lucky and you find a Russian-speaking teacher, he will be "sharpened" for teaching children and will not take on you.

So what is the way out of this situation? He is the only one: start learning the language here and now! Do not wait for the move, do not expect that "it will learn by itself." Such a high standard and such opportunities for mastering the English language is not found in any country except ours. Don't waste a minute, especially if there is very little time left before moving. Remember that a good knowledge of the language opens many doors for you.
