  What’s the best way to learn English?” This is a question that people ask me all the time. Whenever someone asks me this question, I ask them “What’s the best way to learn Korean?” in return. It may come as no surprise to you when I tell you that everyone has a different answer to this question. When I asked some people “What’s the best way to learn English?” I received quite a few different responses. Some people say that going on an English immersion trip is very helpful. Some people will tell you to read English books or magazines. Others will tell you to spend time watching English TV shows or movies. And still others might tell you to become friends with someone who speaks English. All of these responses are great answers to the question “What’s the best way to learn English?”

  You may have purchased some English language books with the hopes of becoming a better English speaker. This is something that is useful when learning a new language, but does require a good deal of self-discipline that not everyone has. You don’t necessarily need to buy new books. Check out the local library or ask your friends if they have any books you could use. Don’t assume that just buying a book will help you learn the language. You will need to spend time reading and studying the book to actually learn something, but if you take the time to study, you’ll definitely learn something.
  Watching and listening to English television is also a helpful study tool. You can choose to use English subtitles so that you can listen to English and read English at the same time. Then, take it a step further and join an online forum to discuss what you have watched in English with people who also saw the same movie or TV show. This will help you to develop your English thinking skills even more. The next time you go to a singing room try to sing some English songs. This will help you to get over any fears you might have about speaking English in public because you’ll be practicing speaking English in a fun and exciting way.
  So now that you’ve studied English and are ready to start speaking English with a native speaker what should you do? You can always visit the Free Speaking Sessions at the Global Zone any day of the week. There is a basic level and an advanced level and you can talk about anything you want. If you are worried about speaking in front of people join the basic level until you feel confident enough to participate in the advanced level sessions. Maybe you don’t have time to join the Global Zone or maybe you don’t want to. That’s okay. There are a lot of resources available for people who want to practice speaking English.

  You can join a language exchange club to practice speaking English with native speakers. Meetup.com is a great website for those interested in meeting people who have similar passions and who enjoy the same activities. You can do a simple search for “English” or “language exchange” and a bunch of different groups will come up in the search results. Not everyone learns English the same way. Some people can learn English simply by watching TV and movies, others learn by studying books, and still others simply learn by having conversations in English. The important thing is that no matter what you do; choose the best way to learn English for you.
