Hi everyone, It is a

Hi everyone,

It is a difficult task to describe the way of learning English. It is like a tooth pain - when you have lots of thoughts, but cannot express them. Something like a dumb dog, that understands all things, but cannot speak.

All of us have lots of ideas, no doubt. But the most quantity of ideas I've got while speaking English, I cannot stop my sentence with the fullstop.

Once my online teacher said to me: "You should speak with the short sentences. No 'that' or 'which', just fullstop". Then after some months she told me that now I was better. Perhaps, she flattered me, because I didn't feel that my spoken English was better very much.

Then I read a lot, but I felt no good. Then I listened to radio, and it didn't help me. I wantched movies, and I couldn't get a single word.

It is a long way - learning English. What do you think?

Hello Grivna: How long did

Hello Grivna:

How long did it take to learn your Mother tongue? Do you remember how you learned it? Who taught you? The experience of learning a second language is very similiar. If you could be emersed in an English environment, it would probably take you 6 to 8 years to master the language. The problem with English (and it's not just unique to English) is that every rule seems to have an exception and sometimes there is no rule at all. American tend to use a lot of idioms ("It's raining cats and dogs!" "I was caught between a rock and a hard place."). We also connect sounds together in expressions much like we are glueing the words together (Wa-da-ya-wanna-du? = What do you want to do?).

My advice is to try to speak in thoughts. But when your mind wanders it is referred to as "monkey mind." It's hard to control a "monkey mind."

EX: Then I read a lot, but I felt no good. Then I listened to radio, and it didn't help me. I wantched movies, and I couldn't get a single word.

"I read a lot. But, it didn't help (me). Then I listened to the radio. It didn't help me either. I watched movies. I couldn't get (understand) a single word."

Are you dreaming in English yet?

Best Regards,

Hi Dan, I think that the

Hi Dan,

I think that the only way to learn English is not to give up. Read, listen, write, speak. May be the most confusing things are to speak and to listen, because we (Russians) never heard the Mother, singing a lullaby in English. Even simplest words and constructions might be difficult for us.

I, for one, never heard that "groceries" means all the food, that might be bought in the grocery store. How did I call them before? Perhaps, food. Or I have to say the names - bread, butter, tins, milk. Does it sound strange?

The main problem is that I don't have enough time to learn English properly. Just 10 to 20 minutes every day.

Hello grivna: Yes, we buy

Hello grivna:

Yes, we buy groceries in a grocery store. When we take them home we put the groceries away in the refrigerator, kitchen cupboards and the pantry (if your kitchen has one).

10 to 20 minutes everyday is better than 0 minutes. But, you're right ... it's not enough. If you give up, you have admitted to yourself that you don't want to learn the language.

Regards,

Dan

PS Your English is coming along quite well. Concentrate on vocabulary. You have a good command of the tenses.

PPS "tins" is a British term. Americans call them "cans." We used to call them "tin cans."

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your reply. What is the best way of learning vocabulary? Once I heard that reading lots and lots of books is the best way of acquiring new words. What do you think? What would you recommend me to improve my vocabulary?

Hi Igor: Increasing

Hi Igor:

Increasing vocabulary is quite a challenge. I suggest you try to make it a fun experience. Get a stack of blank cards (business card stock is the best and cheapest). On one side of the card write a Russian word and on the other side its English equivalent. Ask each participating family member to submit 3 - 5 cards to you every day. Divide the cards into as many categories as you like, i.e., countable nouns, abstract nouns, action verbs, non-action verbs, prepositions, etc. Wait a few days untill you accumulate a stack of cards. Then you can begin playing the game.
So, what's the game?
Assign each English word a number from 1 to 3. The number 1 means and easy word, such as "pill." The number 2 means a more difficult word, such as " medicine." And, the number 3 means a very difficult word, such as "oncologist." Use this system with each group, nouns, verbs, etc . Gather the participants together to play the game. Deal each player 5 cards, English side down (they must not look at the English side of the card). The player to the left of the dealer begins the game by guessing the English word on any one of their cards. If they guess correct, they continue to play. The other players can challenge the guess and if successful with the challenge, they get to keep the points on the challenged word for themselves. This scenario continues until one of the players accumulates some predetermined number of points, 25, 50, etc. They are then declared the winner and the game is over.
You can make up your own rules for the game, depending on agreement with the players. The idea is to get creative and have fun. When a word is always guessed right by every player, retire that card to the "Our Vocabulary" file.
I think you can see the advantage of such a game. It's much more fun to learn with others.

Good Luck.
Dan

Even if I can read and

Even if I can read and understand the English text, I can't catch it in speech, especially if the speaker speaks too fast. Therefore I'm listening people and watching english films with subs alot.

Try watching those films

Try watching those films second time around without subs, in this way you will get used to the pace and accent of the speakers.

English is spoken all over

English is spoken all over the world. It is a language of communication.
It helps to find a common language between people from different countries.
As for me, I learn English because I want to understand people from different countries.
How do I learn English? First of all, I read a lot. There is also an English book on my table. I try to find out few new words every day. Also I speak with my friends in English. English is not so difficult for me.............""which area in English is the most important. I mean is it speaking? writing? listening? or reading? or all? (с)"" ---I think all of these areas are important for each of us.)))

Some people study English

Some people study English due to necessity, like they need to pass an English exams or it's a requirement for job placement or promotion, or sometimes they will travel to an English-speaking country, which leave them so less time to prepare and cram to death... the best way to train and learn the language is to start as early as possible since the language can be perfected through time and with constant practice. You are right, reading, speaking and feeding ourselves with new words everyday are the best way to use the language fluently. So as they say, just practice, practice, practice...
