Why it is impossible to learn English, visiting the English club?Are offensive, having spent plenty of time for training in English at school, institute, on courses, independently, with the tutor, all - still to experience difficulties easily here so to take, find the Englishman in Skype, for example, and to chat with it about life, about affairs, about love... But what to do how to break off a vicious circle when it is impossible to speak, without knowing the theory and when, having studied the theory, you cannot still begin to speak in any way? Again to sit down at textbooks? And sense? They already rather bothered, and, above all - how many time spend for them, and result something is not visible.
But there is quite standard solution of a question, excellent and at first sight very logical recommendation - to practise, having begun to communicate. To place itself in the live language environment. Abroad? Well, but it is difficult. It is possible more simply - visiting the English club!
Well, well. Present what with searches of club of problems did not arise, and here you already crossed a treasured door. Your head is full of the phrases prepared in advance and in general is to the full clogged with knowledge which wants to escape outside. Whether you expect that as soon as you enter the room, you will be surrounded by Americans or British (or the people who are very well knowing English) and in eager rivalry will begin to beat off your attention from each other to communicate to you? Rather a situation will be the return, truly? You should begin conversation.
You are ready to it? It`s cool! We move further. When you managed to capture attention of the person knowing language, you begin to try to communicate about that and about seven, offer a subject. And even you find that that is interesting to both of you. But you will not begin to expect that your interlocutor will begin to correct all your errors or to prompt to you how better and it would be correct to express this or that thought in English? It so far and thoughts - that did not catch yours.
Here you - would begin to correct you the foreigner if he began to communicate with you? It is unlikely. You politely would smile, tried to understand that he wants to tell you, would try to answer him and if he is still a beginner, as for language proficiency, then... would try to get off it somewhat quicker. Not because it is such bad. But because to us usually happens hard (long) to communicate with the person who does not coincide with us on level (knowledge, development, interests and so forth) .
There is also one more important point: this foreigner can decide (after you politely communicated to him) that he knows Russian. But you - that know that it not absolutely so (or absolutely not so)... And the same can happen also in your case, to you.
What a conclusion follows from here? Clubs and other places of communication and practice of language are useful only when you already own language elements when you need only trainings, speaking sport language. When you want to become “ pro “. It as in driving of a car: did not master elements - do not take the wheel without instructor. You do not know how to overcome the rapids rivers - an alloy is possible only with the trained person onboard. And to read the recipe of making sushi in the book and to go with this knowledge on kitchen to prepare for arrival of guests, at least, fondly.
Exit from here one. You need the mentor to train in the correct skills “ passings of thresholds “ in English. Are necessary to you “ different " cars; “ different rivers “ and “ different conditions of cooking “ that in the future you could take the wheel of any car, be alloyed on any river, prepare a tasty dish both at the dacha, and in the equipped kitchen. And all this time until you experienced the general principles (did not capture a concept, an essense), the trainer, the teacher will be necessary for you.
At the same time it would be wrong to work only together with the teacher (to perfect driver`s skill on the same car, to be alloyed on the same site of the river, to prepare from rigidly certain type of products in strictly limited conditions). The teacher has to observe and direct, correct, give a new portion of knowledge in time. You should live in the real world therefore also trainings (including language) have to be real. You are sure that you will constantly communicate only with Americans or British? Now the whole world knows English. It is necessary to be ready to understanding any. Even having left for practice in schools on Malta, in England or America you, most likely, will communicate more often with the Germans, Italians, Slovaks studying or practicing English.
Colloquial club - the remarkable place for expansion of an outlook and a lexicon. But only when you strongly own bases. When you know that is admissible and that - no. When to you is what to lean on. Only in this case you will be able to be saved from one more misfortune: to pick up incorrect expressions, incorrectly used words or incorrectly built offers from the interlocutor (not the native speaker or the carrier which is not really well knowing literary English, not following norms and the rules too strictly). To be retrained far more difficult. All of us know how just happens a podkhvatitdurny habit and as it is difficult then to get rid of it.
And in order that it was simpler to you to pass a way from ignorance of English to its free possession, to complete control over thought and the speech in English, and the course in English in Applied Education was created. Obtaining theoretical information in the small portions and receiving a lot of practice with different partners, but under control of the expert, you work the skills in communication in English and, finishing a course, you know that where life abandoned you, you will always be able adequately to get out of the situation. Because well and practically you own language bases.
