Hello everyone.. This post is a continuation from the previous post, which focuses on English as a second language.
In the previous post, a video attached has identified the common problems faced by the second language English learners.
In this post, I listed the problems and how the learners could overcome the problems.
It is a common problem that a listener would feel difficult in understanding the conversation made by the native English speakers. They would feel that the speakers speak too fast in their own language.
Solution: You can try to watch any dramas or movies in English, but don’t forget to insert the subtitles as well. It will help you to understand what they (the actors/actresses) said.
As a new speaker to a new language, of course you wouldn’t know a lot of words in English.
Solution: You can try to list any new English words that you have learned together with the meaning. It helps you to remember the words and the meaning as well. After that, practice, practice and practice to use the words learned.
Besides vocabulary, pronunciation (how to pronounce the words) should also be practiced. For example, how to pronounce ‘flour vs flower’, ‘knight vs night’ and ‘write vs right’.
The examples above showed that the English words have the same sound in the way you pronounce it, but remember, the words have a different meaning.
Confidence is always important in mastering a new language. Well, maybe the tips below will help you to gain your confidence in using the English language.
Keep on practising.
A non native speaker will always paused or hesitate to use English. It is okay to have fillers during the conversation. You just need to practice a lot. Try to express your ideas in English, and you will notice some improvement.
6. Grammar errors
Making mistakes in the grammar errors is necessary for a learner to be better. Just make sure not to make the same mistakes over an over again. It takes time to master a language, so don’t give up!
That’s all for now.. Thanks for viewing and enjoy learning 😉
