Looking for one or some effective English learning methods to improve my English？
Is there a cool way to learn English? Well, I am not sure what you mean by cool, but I do know of a very effective method for improving your English.
It is writing in English. In fact, I wrote an article about how writing works to improve our English.
Let me give you a practicle example of writing.
If you are a just beginning do not take much thought about correct words, sentence structure or the like. Just use the words that you do know to express yourself.
If you have a higher level of English then, while you write, you will be contemplating which word would be the best word to effectively express yourself. Correct sentence structure will be considered.
Let us go a further step and apply this to your life. Find an article, movie, documentary, or something related to an interest that you have. Whether plants, technology, or the environment. Just choose material that you are interested in. Watch it, read it, listen to it, eat it, look at it. Again it doesn’t matter. Then…..afterwards. Write about it.
Here is where the cool part comes in to play. You purposely choose which style of communication that you want to use in your writing. It could be a narrative about what you just read, (watched, ate, listened to), or it could be an opinionated style of communication, maybe a argumentative style. You choose.
For example, I just finished reading an article about the fact that Toyota’s Camry is manufactured in the United States and outpaces American car manufacturers in terms of production. It was very interesting.
I have some opinions of my own that I am eager to share about this article and I also just so happen want to learn (improve) my Engish. So, I fire up (open up) my favorite word processor or my blog and start writing my opinion.
….According to the article, the Camry outpaces both Ford and Chevrolet in production. In my opinion this is a bit of disheartening news to read and should serve as a wake up call to American automobile producers…..
or I speak persuasively in favor of the article.
… While some may be shocked that the Camry outpaces American car manufacturers in terms of production this should be viewed in the context of how many jobs this provides…
You get the idea.
Now here is the rub. Doing this is a great exericise and a fun and interesting way to learn how to communicate effectively in English, however you will need some feedback for positive improvement. Without it, you will not know whether or not corrections in grammar or word choice are needed.
