Tricks to help you learn English

Eng­lish is the lan­guage of the mod­ern world, so now it is extreme­ly dif­fi­cult to do with­out know­ing it. Each of us at least once in our lives thought that it would be time to start learn­ing this for­eign lan­guage, but not every­one has achieved the desired result. This hap­pens for many rea­sons: fear of fail­ure, lack of prop­er moti­va­tion, improp­er­ly cho­sen teach­ing meth­ods, unin­ter­est­ing edu­ca­tion­al mate­ri­als, lack of self-con­trol and lack of time to mem­o­rize the rules and learn words in Eng­lish. All this can be dealt with, because many have already gone through it.

First, let’s under­stand why we need Eng­lish.

  • Career

Many com­pa­nies coop­er­ate with oth­er coun­tries and the main lan­guage of com­mu­ni­ca­tion is Eng­lish. Accord­ing­ly, in order to become a valu­able employ­ee who can con­duct busi­ness cor­re­spon­dence or nego­ti­a­tions in Eng­lish and improve their skills through for­eign sources of infor­ma­tion, it is nec­es­sary to speak Eng­lish at a high lev­el.

  • Edu­ca­tion abroad

Every­one knows that get­ting an edu­ca­tion abroad is not so easy, but a for­eign diplo­ma guar­an­tees employ­ment both in your home coun­try and abroad. There­fore, in order to increase the lev­el of your knowl­edge and secure a decent future for your­self, you can choose one of the for­eign uni­ver­si­ties, as many edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions pro­vide train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for res­i­dents of oth­er coun­tries.

  • Infor­ma­tion Pos­ses­sion

On the Inter­net, most of the edu­ca­tion­al ser­vices and mate­ri­als are trans­lat­ed into Russ­ian, and it’s hard to even imag­ine how many Eng­lish-lan­guage sources are avail­able only to those who speak this lan­guage. Know­ing Eng­lish will great­ly expand your hori­zons, because you will be able to use all pos­si­ble edu­ca­tion­al resources. You will also get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to fol­low the news in Eng­lish, par­tic­i­pate in webi­na­rs and take online cours­es, more­over, fol­low your for­eign idols on social net­works and under­stand what they are talk­ing about and what exact­ly they want to con­vey to their audi­ence with­out using trans­la­tors.

  • Movies, series and books

Watch­ing and read­ing in the orig­i­nal is cer­tain­ly much more pleas­ant. You will get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to enjoy the voic­es and pro­nun­ci­a­tion of your favorite actors, and you will not have to wait for the release of a new film with dub­bing. Enjoy clas­sic lit­er­a­ture in the orig­i­nal and under­stand the author’s thought “at first hand”. You can also watch videos of your favorite for­eign blog­gers on YouTube and not use Russ­ian sub­ti­tles.

  • You will become smarter

It is nec­es­sary to reg­u­lar­ly increase your knowl­edge, and Eng­lish has long been the base for almost every­one. Even while study­ing, you will already devel­op your mem­o­ry, con­cen­tra­tion and willpow­er, because for high-qual­i­ty train­ing you real­ly have to make a lot of effort.

As you can see, learn­ing Eng­lish def­i­nite­ly makes sense. And if you have already decid­ed to start learn­ing, here are some tricks and life hacks for learn­ing Eng­lish that will make this process a lit­tle eas­i­er and faster.

Choose a target

It is dif­fer­ent for every­one, so you need to think about why you specif­i­cal­ly need Eng­lish. Above we have giv­en sev­er­al exam­ples of why it is worth learn­ing Eng­lish — you can choose one of them, or come up with what is right for you. Write down your goal on a piece of paper or notes and do your best to keep it in front of you at all times. A clear vision of the ulti­mate goal guar­an­tees a charge of moti­va­tion even when there is absolute­ly no strength for any­thing.

You should not learn a lan­guage just because “it’s nec­es­sary”, you need to feel the need for this knowl­edge, and only then you can not only start learn­ing, but also achieve the desired results.

Learn English every day

Reg­u­lar­i­ty is very impor­tant in study­ing, because then you def­i­nite­ly won’t be able to for­get the mate­r­i­al you have stud­ied. Let it be only 1.5–2 hours a day, but if such class­es are held on a reg­u­lar basis, then soon you will see progress. You can also divide the learn­ing into sev­er­al sec­tions, for exam­ple, three times a week you study with a teacher and study new mate­r­i­al, and the rest of the days you just review and prac­tice what you have learned, and also learn new words using apps, books or films.

Use media content in English

Just the same, movies and TV shows will help you learn new words and improve your pro­nun­ci­a­tion. Thanks to this learn­ing method, you will not only mem­o­rize new infor­ma­tion, but also have an inter­est­ing time. You can also watch TED lec­tures, lis­ten to pod­casts and audio books — this is one of the tech­niques for mem­o­riz­ing words, but in addi­tion to this, you will learn to per­ceive for­eign speech much bet­ter by ear.

Professional educator

Use the ser­vices of a tutor at least at the begin­ning of train­ing, because this is the per­son who can “bring you up to date.” The teacher will not only explain what is not clear, but also share their own teach­ing meth­ods, tell you how to mem­o­rize words or even make a list of words to remem­ber that will be use­ful to you at the very begin­ning, the tutor will also be able to rec­om­mend learn­ing mate­ri­als that match your lev­el of knowl­edge and inter­ests.


In order to prac­tice Eng­lish, you do not have to wait until you remem­ber all the rules and all the words from the dic­tio­nary or go to anoth­er coun­try — you can find native speak­ers or peo­ple who do not mind speak­ing Eng­lish with­out leav­ing their home­town.

First­ly, you can vis­it var­i­ous speak­ing clubs, which bring togeth­er peo­ple who study Eng­lish and prac­tice it, talk­ing on var­i­ous top­ics. Sec­ond­ly, thanks to the Inter­net, it is pos­si­ble to com­mu­ni­cate with a native speak­er. There are dif­fer­ent sites where peo­ple from dif­fer­ent coun­tries are look­ing for inter­locu­tors with whom they can prac­tice a for­eign lan­guage and share expe­ri­ence.
