Learning any language is pretty easy, basic, and routine up until the intermediate level, where one is simply memorizing vocabulary, learning basic grammar structures, and repeating these words and ways of speaking very repetitively. Yes, there is a lot of time and effort to get to this level, but what stops a language learner from jumping from the intermediate level to the advanced level? The roadblock is now we have to go from the routine to the creative, make the language our own and natural for us, in order to take that jump to the native sound. How do we do this?

Tips to make that skip to the native level/advanced level quickly and effectively.

Tip #1: English is a lifestyle, not a diet!

It’s time to make English a vital part of your everyday life, not something temporary. This means, listening and seeing English on a daily basis to create an English immersion simulation in your life. How do we do this? Listen to podcasts and music, watch tv and the news in English. And most importantly, read daily for just 10-15 minutes and your English level will skyrocket!

Tip #2: Yes, reading is a must!

Now most people are not big fans of reading, but let’s reflect back to when we were children learning our native language. How did we increase our vocabulary and improve our speaking and writing skills? This happens through the words that jump out to us from the pages of a goodread. So my recommendation to stay motivated with this goal is to choose reading material that suits your interests, like a short news article, a chapter from a book, or a blog. Once you start this great habit, trust me, you won’t be able to stop! The results are almost immediate in English vocabulary acquisition and improved speaking and writing skills with complex grammar structures.

Tip #3: Be an active learner!

Learning is not just receiving information, that’s just part 1 and we call that the input or passive learning. What we are looking for is the output or the action one takes after receiving information; in other words, we are looking for an active learner. An active learner will produce English daily, but how can we do this if we have no one to practice with? Keep it simple, read out loud, act out a conversation, and mimic what you hear and see on the television. With writing, it doesn’t matter where you are, it can be done anywhere and anytime. Write a text message to an English speaking friend or write a journal entry and see how quickly your English level will advance! These simple activities will improve pronunciation and fluency at an exponential rate!

Tip #4: Don’t be afraid to make mistakes!

5.png

The biggest obstacle to achieving the native level sound in any language is fear. The fear of making a mistake, sounding ridiculous, or not being understood by the listener. Let’s change how we look at fear and not view it as a failure, but as an opportunity to improve and be successful. Take a chance, leave fear behind, and naturally you will make leaps and bounds in your English language journey!

You’re very welcome! At first that extra effort takes a lot of discipline, but then very quickly it becomes routine and simply a part of everyday life, so I encourage you to go for it!

I really enjoyed it! That’s so true. When I went to USA, it was my first international trip so I was so afraid to make mistakes but at the end, that’s how I learned so much about the real expressions for daily routines. So, don’t be afraid to say something wrong 😄

One advice that a friend of mine gave me many years ago, when she was helping me to learn English is to try to act as someone you admire. She told me that when you are learning a new language you develop another personality married to that language, so, you can try to act as someone you admire, for example, you can try to play as Brad Pitt, try to imitate his corporal language, his accent, his stand position. That can make you gain some confidence.
