To get the most out of your time studying at THE DYNAMO INSTITUTE and Australia, we have listed some tips on how to learn English quickly.
First, find out what your learning style is. Are you an visual learner? This means you learn best by seeing words written down, taking notes and making mind maps. Are you an auditory learner? Repeating new words aloud, talking things through with a teacher or other student and telling stories will help you learn. Are you a kinesthetic learner? Being a kinesthetic learner means that you can do role plays, move around while learning things and learn through writing and rewriting edited drafts. It is also possible to use a combination of these styles. English language courses in Australia generally focuses on different styles in different lessons or in different parts of lessons.
How can you integrate these newly learnt skills together? You can do this by watching TV and listing a couple of new words or a phrase that you have heard, then try using them again as quickly as possible, either in conversation, email or writing exercise. It is a good idea to keep practising the new language until you get both the context and pronunciation right. Learning English is like a science experiment, always testing and retesting!
Use the resources around you every day. Even if you simply walk down the street, you can still look at all the signs, eavesdrop on all the conversations on the bus and train, and/or ask every shop assistant lots of questions about their products. TV is also a great tool to use, especially sopies where the stories are quite simple and easy to understand. You will also learn lots of local slang. You can learn new vocabulary, natural grammar, listen to native speakers and maybe even chat with people who have the same interests through the Internet. It is important to remember that English language courses and schools are not the only places where you can learn English. When you learn English in Australia, you can learn everywhere and anywhere.
Finally, if you want to learn English quickly in Australia, your attitude is crucial. You need to have fun learning but have the serious intention to learn. Be strong but don't be afraid of making mistakes. English language schools will help you do this. Learn to express your ideas, feelings and opinons, and remember that everyone has the right to thier own point of view since listening is also an important part of communicating. Finally, it is important to remember to remain optimistic and keep your eye on your long term goal, whether it is your dream job or communicating easily with travellers on your next holiday.
