Few people ever really thought: "What a pity that the English school did not work" or "The school knew - are now forgotten."
But in today's world we are faced with more and more situations where language skills would be most welcome.
And here it begins: "It's too late," "It is not the age," "No time," etc.
Excuses may be many, but perhaps it is not so hard and long as we think?
Speaking of fast language learning, can not be understoodunder that of his profound knowledge. Literacy written speech or free reading books need some more time. But to master spoken English, to be able without difficulty to communicate with native speakers in travel, watch movies without translation at the foreign news channels - is quite real.
The first thing you need to decide is the minimumthe volume of vocabulary and grammar. 3000 words in common use is sufficient to understand 70% of everyday speech. If one considers that knowledge of the school, many simply "slammed" the order of 300-500 words, the volume for the study significantly reduced. Grammar is limited to three times the verb (past, present, future), three forms of the verb (affirmative, negative and interrogative), gerund and participle basics. For daily communication no longer need anything. In colloquial English-speaking residents simplify it and change the words just like you and me. Therefore, even if you sometimes make mistakes, you are sure to understand.
We single out the main points that must be followed throughout the course of the emergency language learning.
- Giving lessons at least 1-2 hours a day.
- Remember 17-20 new words every day. No more - will mess in my head. No need to open a dictionary and learn everything. As you read the theory of grammar, these 20 words exist in the examples. Also, you can open any text or dialogue in the textbook. If possible, record them in a dictionary with transcription - so facilitate memorization, as many people have a very good working visual memory.
- Each day start a cursory study of grammarrepeat yesterday's material. Do not overload yourself information. For example, the day of study only one form of the verb, or one time, but in detail with examples and exceptions.
- Once the bulk of the grammar learnedstart to look familiar movies without translation, then move on to unfamiliar exposition and dialogue. In short, try to create a English-speaking environment.
After 2-3 months the result will be obvious. But if you want to maintain and improve the level of knowledge, do not stop practice and to fill up your vocabulary. Let not as intense and not every day, but be sure to read, listen and write. Only knowledge will stay with you for a long time.
