Learn English

LISTED 74

Learning a new language is never easy but it's so satisfying when you are able to converse with someone in a foreign language!

English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in Anglo-Saxon England in the early Middle Ages. It is now the most widely used language in the world.

It is spoken in many countries around the world and is the first language of the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and a number of Caribbean nations. There are about 375 million native speakers (people with first language as English), which is the largest after Mandarin and Spanish.

About 220 million more people speak it as a second language and it is often used in work and in travel, and there are as many as a billion people who are learning it, which makes English the second most spoken language as well as the most international one in the world.

English has changed, and has been changed by many different languages.

Because nearly 60% of the vocabulary comes from Latin, English is sometimes called the most Latin of the Germanic languages, and is often mistaken for being a Romance language.

English is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, along with Russian, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Chinese.

Here are some tips that will help you in mastering any language:

  • first of all you must know why you are doing it, you have to be motivated,
  • finding a partner will increase your motivation as together it will be much faster and easier to master new language.
  • talk to yourself a lot,
  • don't dive too much in textbooks and talk to people a lot as it will keep the learning process relevant to you.

Learning a language is hard! It requires hard work and much effort. You need to spend lots of hours every day on it and yet you won't be a success at once. You have to obtain a new way of thinking, you have to do simultaneous translation in your head in a very short time. But I came over those obstacles that every freshman comes into. I've been spending 7 years to learn English and now I'm fluent and free in my thoughts. I'm a specialist of the English Language and it's thanks to my hard work and dedication!
