English has turned into the most important language in the west. For example, most of the information on the Internet is in English, so if you want to learn something, the best way is googling it in that language.
Therefore a lot of jobs require as a must English. So if you want to have the best opportunities in your profession, this is the path that you need to take.
How to learn?
There are a lot of methods like personalities in the world. Each way doesn’t work for everyone. You need to find a method that matches the kind of person you are.
For example, you can pay a private English teacher only for you, join group classes, buy an on-line course, pay for a private English school, watch movies or shows in English, among others!
If you are learning from Youtube videos, shows or movies, you can turn on the subtitles and read the dialogs in English, that could be easier than listening only to the voices without any help. Remember that you can slow down the speed of the video, in that way you will listen to the words not so fast.
If you have an English conversation or meeting at Google Meet and the other person speaks very fast, you can turn on the subtitles to read what the other parts are saying. Is not the best closed caption in the world… but it helps.
Pay attention: when you are studying, at classes, watching a video or just talking in English, you need to be focused. It is necessary when you are learning because your brain isn’t used to the new language. When you become an advanced English speaker, you will not need that kind of concentration.
Don’t search in the dictionary: if you are talking with someone and you need to search a word, don’t do it, because it breaks the conversation thread. Instead, try to explain to the other person (or ask for the explanation) the word that you want to say.
Learning English is an investment of time and effort. If you are determined to do it, you assume a big responsibility to learn it seriously. But it is worth a try because you can improve your profession.
There are a lot of ways to do it, some free, cheap and expensive. Therefore, you have no excuse to complain about the money. But remember: not all methods match everyone, you need to find the way that works for you.
Then what are you waiting for to start?
