How to Master English Faster

Do you want to master English, but got confused how?
Well, you’ve come to the right place then. Here are some tips that will be useful for you to master English faster:
1. On and On
Yes, on and on, never off. I mean you must study continuously. Because studying English once a week isn’t enough to make any real progress. The best way to improve your English quickly is to spend at least 30 minutes or 1 hour every day. Try to listen to, read, and even say things in English. If you want to speak English fluently, you have to make it as part of your everyday life.

2. Be a Native
This is something people mostly don’t do. People who learn English always think that English is a second language or a foreign language. A student always think that he is a student that is learning a second language. This is the attitude that we must change. It will differ between failure and success. Stop thinking of yourself as a student,   who is learning English, and start to think of yourself as someone who speaks English, as a native speaker. It’s a small change indeed, but it will make you feel more confident and help you to use the English you already know more effectively and more continuously.

3. Do a Better Listening
When students listen to a native English-speaker, they focus on understanding what all the words mean. This is surely important, but there is actually something we can do more with listening. Try listening not just to what the words mean, but be aware also of how the person says the words. With this, we also learn pronunciation while listening.
This is of course easier said than done. When you listen to native English speakers, it can be hard to understand every single word that is spoken. They might use many words you don’t know, talk too fast or have a strange accent. But do not worry, because all of these will be overcome by the time goes. We just need to do it on and on.

4. Use It or Lose It

“Use it or lose it” This an expression in English which basically means if you don’t practice an ability, you might forget it. This idea can be used to help you remember new English vocabulary because the best way to remember new words is to use the words right away so the words will stay in your memory. When you learn new words, say them in sentences a few times over the next days and you’ll never forget them.

5. Do not stick to Grammar Too Much

Grammar is indeed important, but if we want to speak English fluently, we must not be afraid of making mistake in grammar. Even native English-speakers make grammar mistakes! Fluency is about being able to communicate. That’s why sometimes it’s important that you don’t stick to grammar, so you can go out and practice those writing, reading, listening and speaking skills in the real world. Write now, Listen Now, Speak Now, Grammar will follow.
