We study English from scratch: what to undertake?So, the decision are made - we study English. How? Where? What for this purpose should be made also what needs to be known before to undertake studying of English? About it conversation will go today.
In - the first, we will try to define why it is necessary to study English - because at work all employees speak in English or because the same is done by the girlfriend Masha or therefore because on courses it is possible to get acquainted with interesting people?
The answer to such question will help to judge correctly, what is the time and forces it is worth giving to new hobby. It also is clear - for the sake of business of vital importance it is possible will spend several hours a day, well and to strike up new acquaintances - enough several times a week to descend on occupations.
Besides, the understanding of that why English courses are necessary, will help to understand and what courses, are actually necessary.
For example, the person, words not able to tell in English, wants to learn to speak - then the decision will - look for the place where learn to speak - courses of colloquial English. Other person who is also not knowing language wants to learn to read books in English and does not set before himself the purpose to learn to talk - the decision will be another: it will be possible to be engaged according to the textbook independently or on any classical course of English.
To learn to read is just one of the easiest skills at development of any language - having learned to use the dictionary, it is possible to look at the translation of the foreign word. Of course, it is necessary to learn also grammar, and also to understand that idioms or a slang sometimes occur in texts.
Here that one girl who came to an English course to learn to speak told: “ I in general learned to Read in English itself, with the dictionary. However, then it turned out that to read - that I poorly - poorly can, and here when I hear the same words from the chief, I understand nothing “.
Therefore, another matter - to learn to talk. How many people begin to learn foreign languages and what small percent really is able to speak in English, in French or in German? The reason not that people become incapable of training, and in what training which they receive is not always capable to teach them to tell.
One option - you want to learn a foreign language within 10 years at school - here - you do not want, and you will begin to repeat simple phrases after the teacher. And absolutely another - to learn language from scratch moreover in a short time - for several months of studying of English with “ school “ approach not progress in development of language will be available at everyone.
But it is not necessary to be upset ahead of time because except school approach there are and many another, really working methods of training in language which will allow to learn to talk for several months.
At the heart of them absolutely simple, though sounding paradoxically thought - to learn to talk in unfamiliar language, it is necessary to talk in it. Strange? Here not! Why, doing gymnastics, children do gymnastic exercises, and being trained to write, we take the handle in hand and we try to write?
It turns out if the person wants to learn something - he begins to do what wants to master, let in the beginning slowly, with corrections and hints. None of the beginning artists remember by heart what is a sphere or a rhombus - the hand has to remember as to it to move to describe a circle or a square, and an eye has to get used to distinguish as lighting on a sphere falls.
And with language - if the person wants to learn to speak the same a foreign language, - to begin to speak the best this language. Let in the beginning simply and slowly, but gradually he will get used to hear the correct speech, and will learn to say the correct phrases.
In it difference of a colloquial course from all others. Here students from the very first day perfect skill of conversation and learn to speak correctly. No scientifically formulated rules are necessary here - they only slow down training process, adding unnecessary doubts and reflections about what word for what has to follow what what word a part of speech is and what grammatical terms that designate.
Here is how one of my students described the impressions: “ From the very first occupation I notice progress. Everything that it seemed unclear earlier, rose on the places now, and everything that we sort on occupation, I can say, communicating at work with colleagues. After the first five occupations I understood that I can even help the son with homework! “
Obviously, having undertaken development foreign with the purpose to master a spoken language, it is not necessary to run behind the textbook with rules and to wait that the teacher will explain these rules. Having come to a colloquial course, it is necessary to remember that the movement to the purpose consists of small steps - today learned to tell the simple phrase, tomorrow - something more difficult.
The main thing - to deal with the purposes. And further - the solution is found very simply. If the purpose - to learn to talk, it is necessary to look for a good colloquial course if there is a wish to learn to read and write - it is necessary go on less intensive course where students read and write.
Development of language is necessary not a lot of time as it seems - for only several months of training it is possible to begin to tell and understand the foreign speech, to learn to use the dictionary, and, above all - not to feel shame or fear for the fact that the told word will be mispronounced.
