Those who study any foreign language(English or some other - it does not matter), sometimes they allow typical mistakes. You can almost infinitely write about how to teach, what to teach, in what sequence and so on.
However, few people mention what you do not need to do.
And this, at times, can help in this situation much better.
The most important mistake in studying foreignLanguage is that the trainees try to learn only single words. And it's necessary to deal with ready-made phrases already. Yes, let them be simple and seemingly very childish, but: pay attention to how you mastered your native language. Nobody gave you the meaning of individual words, and then did not explain the grammatical nuances. You took the finished product, and used it without any problems whatsoever, that is, they were first spoken by separate phrases, and then by coherent sentences.
So why not do the same trick withA foreign language? So you will much more quickly remember all the material in its natural context and you will not find yourself in a situation: "I know all the words, but I can not understand the meaning". In addition, when dealing with native speakers, you do not allow silly mistakes, translating literally some phenomena that exist in Russian, into English.
If you decide to master yourselfA foreign language, remember: the most important thing is not to teach a lot of material at a time. Divide the information into blocks, and then work through them sequentially. Pass the material you try to repeat periodically, otherwise it will not remain in the long-term memory, and you will not be able to use it in the future. People who are engaged in the teaching of foreign languages, found out the following: to make the word remain in the long-term memory, it is necessary to perform with it at least 16 different operations (translate, remember in the context of the sentence, hear and so on).
The following error, which is the mostCommon in the study of English or German, is simply to listen and repeat, instead of expressing one's own thoughts. Yes, you can memorize some phrases or even a whole text, but in a normal life situation, despite this, you can not speak fluently. What to do in this situation? The answer is simple: communicate! Find an interlocutor on the Internet (for example, write on the forum or talk on Skype). The main thing is to immerse yourself in the language environment, even if it is artificially created. Your desire is the key to success!
