Today there are many ways to study or improve English, but which is the best method for you? Here are some tips for choosing the right solution if you decide to learn English.
What is the best course for my level?
People often think that a course for beginners should only be about grammar and vocabulary, while a course for advanced learners should only be about conversations. But this is not true !
As a beginner, it is important to listen and repeat to naturally learn some grammar and vocabulary, like children do.
So be sure to always start with a comprehensive level test to understand how far you need to start. It is ideal to identify your level as precisely as possible, otherwise you risk having lessons that are either too difficult or too easy.
How can I study while having fun?
We believe that the most effective way to learn is to actively participate in your lessons and have fun . If your lessons are boring and you play a passive role, you will give up or simply forget most of what you have heard.
A good way to keep things dynamic and fun is to use a mixed method of interactive lessons, lots of conversation time, and social activities with other students. So you can immediately put into practice what you have learned while looking forward to what lies ahead.
What type of course will help me improve my spoken English?
We often hear students say, “I know all the English grammar, I just need to make conversation.”
Most of these students feel uncomfortable having a conversation in English, or worse, can’t follow it.
To improve your spoken English, you need to follow the natural logic we followed when we learned our native language : listen to the language, copy it, and gain confidence in speaking it. Then reproduce it yourself in a conversation.
This natural language acquisition system is valid for all levels, from beginners to advanced learners. So be sure to look for a course that follows a structured curriculum, constantly introducing and revising the new language, not just grammar or conversation lessons.
Is it better to take an individual or group lesson?
Both individual lessons and group lessons have advantages.
Individual lessons allow you to progress at your own pace, giving you flexibility and extra time to practice . And when you have a busy time, you can simply take a break from your studies. On the other hand, group lessons can be more fun from a social point of view.
The ideal is therefore to find a course that allows you to progress at your own pace, by adapting to your needs , while offering you the possibility of studying with other people.
How can I be sure that the lesson method works?
With the large number of courses now available online and in schools, it is difficult to know which courses work and can guarantee success.
To be sure that you can trust a learning method, we recommend that you focus on organizations or groups with considerable experience in language learning .
You can also check out the testimonials available on their website to get an idea of what students are saying about the course. A good school must also have qualified teachers, a well-structured course that follows international guidelines, and modern, efficient and fun equipment.
