Fluency in English is one of the most productive(produktywny) skills you can possess. Being the most spoken language in the world, English opens up many doors of opportunities(możliwości) for you.
However, as many of us know, learning a new language, especially one as complicated(skomplikowany) and confusing(mylące) as English is not an easy task. English, especially, can be very intimidating(zastraszające) and overwhelming. As an adult, learning English can take incredible(niesamowite) amounts of effort, practice, and time. More so, if you do not have the luxury of taking time off to focus only on learning English.
But don’t lose hope yet. Learning English can be quick, time-saving, and even fun(szybkie, oszczędzające czas, a nawet zabawne) if you do it right.
The Immersive Method:
One of the easiest scientifically proven ways of learning English fast is to incorporate English practices into your daily lives. Often called the immersive(wciągająca) method, this method requires you to surround yourself and your experience with English. This means changing all your social media and digital accounts to English, surrounding yourself with people that are willing to converse with you in English, watching only English movies, and reading only English books.
It is the quickest and the most efficient way to achieve fluency in a language, as it doesn’t just teach you how to speak, write, or understand the language, but it forces you to start thinking in the language.
This method is the natural method used by babies when they learn how to speak. By surrounding yourself with English, you will not only learn vocabulary, but also gain a deeper understanding of the rhythm, syntax, and organization of the language, that you cannot understand so quickly in a classroom set up.
However, you will soon find that it is not possible to dive straight into this immersive method of language learning. You have to attain a certain basic level of foundational knowledge of English, without which you will be rendered helpless to do even the most essential things in your daily life. Therefore, before committing entirely to this method, we would recommend that you first begin with a few weeks of classroom learning.
A Quick Tip:
The best way would be if you learn some vocabulary and grammar before committing to saying, changing your phone’s language to English.
However, the most critical aspect of quickly learning English, or any new language, is to change your mindset. Many people approach learning a new language with frustration and hesitation. Especially when learning a language so widely used such as English, learners are often afflicted with a displaced sense of inferiority and embarrassment, which makes them particularly conscious of their pronunciations, and grammar. However, to learn English quickly, it is imperative to get rid of these false notions and practice with an open mind.
It is okay to make mistakes:
In fact, the large majority of the people who grew up speaking fluently, and whose first language is English, often use bad grammar and terrible pronunciations. Think about it, do you speak in your first language perfectly and without any mistakes? No, of course not.
Remember that fluency is not about speaking a language with textbook correct grammar, and an extensive vocabulary. Yes, these things can help, but real fluency will be achieved when you can use a language without hesitation to communicate your needs, feelings, and desires to another person.
In fact, an easy way to get the hang of English is to make comparisons with the languages you already know. English is often called three languages in a trench coat, due to its tendency to adopt the rules and words of any other language it comes across. If you look carefully, you are sure to share similar terms and grammatical rules in English with your native tongue.
When you learn English, make mental connections with similar aspects of any other language, you know. This will help you remember the rules, and also help you speak the language with fluency and natural rhythm.
The easiest and fastest way to learn English is to dive(nurkować) straight in without any inhibitions and not to overthink. It is a skill which you will improve with practice; it is not something you can learn by spending a few hours studying from a textbook.
By surrounding yourself with English, and practising every day, you will achieve fluency(płynność) in minimal time.
