TOP-5 school principles of learning English that are useful


We often criticize school education for implying ineffective methods. But everything is not as bad as it might seem at first glance! You can even adopt a few methods from school to help you learn English on your own.

Exercise regularly

We went to school in any weather: rain, snow, and heat. It was impossible to be lazy and not go. The lessons were every day, which means that the classes were regular. Regularity is the secret of success: make it a rule to devote 10 minutes every day to learning a language, and success will not keep you waiting.

Write dictations

An important point in language learning is the ability to perceive the language by ear. If this skill is not developed, a simple "Hello!" will be perceived as incomprehensible gibberish. A great way to develop your language hearing is listening. At school, this type of work is not paid very much attention, but there is such a type of activity as dictations, which we have "ate" in full. Take note - write dictations and listening sessions.

Take breaks

Change is important and necessary, the school made it clear to us. Take pauses - small but pauses. Take advantage of this practice: set an alarm for every hour and devote 10 minutes to physical activity and changing activities, which, as you know, are also rest.

Retell texts

Remember how we retell them in school: either memorized by heart, or spied on every word in the textbook. Do not do like this! Retelling texts is an excellent method of developing conversational speech. By retelling texts in English, you will improve your vocabulary, spoken language, remove barriers and learn to speak fluently.

Do your homework

As sad as it is, homework is not a way to poison our lives, but an excellent practice for updating the knowledge gained. Do not neglect your homework, it is your salvation!
