Are you still struggling to get a good grasp on the English language? Have you tried everything?
If not, then consider trying the 3 tips I have listed below.
1. Changing the Language Settings on all Your Devices
Let’s face it, if there’s something we’re exposed to every day, it’s technology. So, why not turn the routine habits of checking our smartphones and tablets into a daily English lesson? You will not only learn new words, but also start understanding the vocabulary, no matter what system you’re using.
2.) Paying attention to sound patterns
When listening to native speakers talk, pay attention to the words they emphasize. You’ll find that they usually stress content words more than function words. Content words are usually nouns, verbs, and adjectives. They help you form a picture of what the person is trying to communicate. Function words, which are usually pronouns, prepositions, determiners, and auxiliary verbs, help connect the content words and make the sentence grammatically correct. Paying attention to the content words will help you figure out the meaning of what a person is saying
3.) Learning how to be a selective listener
When you first start listening to native English speakers, it will be tough to understand all the words they’re saying, so focus on the words you recognize, and try to figure out meaning based on the context.
Above all else, please remember, if you are ONLY looking for simple solutions or fixes or explanations, you will never learn the language. One of the most important things to look for is useful information. Often times, the simplest explanation will not be enough to learn something.
