Have you ever wondered why some English learners improve their English without any problems?
They seem to be able to use the English language exceptionally well and have confidence in their abilities.
The reason for this is that they have found a way to take control of their own learning and use English in a fun and enjoyable way. They are what we call ‘active language users’.
To be successful with your English you need to become a language user not a language learner!
Language learners never really seem to make much progress as they are constantly learning the language. The constant learning without sufficient practice is not the best way to become a confident user of the language.
Language users find a way to combine English with other interests. They use their English to explore new topics and concepts.
If you really want to start making progress with your English, then it’s time you take control and start to become a active language user not a learner.
One of the best ways to do this is;
Turn English into a fun and enjoyable habit and use your current level of English to explore new areas of interest.
This way you take responsibility for your own development and start to develop your skills further.
Think of all the new things you could learn now you have an intermediate level of English. It makes sense really, to combine English with other things you love!
What topics interest you?
I encourage you to think deeply about what topics interest you and what areas of your life you would like to improve and then start using your English to help you achieve them.
This way you will see how enjoyable English becomes and how you progress with your ability to use English.
Doing this alone is a very powerful way to become successful with your English!
