As you can see, many people out there read every article in English, watching movies without reading the translation, or listening to the music without searching the lyric on youtube or by browsing..

And there is so many way to Rome, and also it has many way to improve ourselves English Skill

For me, i prefer practicing English by conversation.

And how about you guys! :mrgreen:

For vocabulary, it's best to learn it by lots and lots of reading.. especially reading articles online such as jakarta post, jakarta globe, and also news from abroad like new york times, huffington post.. you can not only improve your vocabulary, but knowledge as well.

For grammar, listening, and speaking, I think watching youtube would do :)
If the purpose is to improve your basic communication, watch some daily vlogs of people, they usually talk about lots of stuff in english, so the more you listen, the more you'll get used to them.
However note that daily vlogs use only very basic english, including slang words.
If it's to improve a more complex level of listening and speaking, watch the news such as CNN, RT news, CNA, and other news channel. I don't think that not all Americans would understand the news because it requires knowledge of proper english as well..

so if you go abroad, and claim that you understand english very well while watching popular tv shows such as ellen degeneres or jersey shore, i can say you're still dumb as hell because they are using very basic english.. and that is still nothing to be proud of..


For me personally, it's harder to learn new vocabularies than the grammar and pronunciation. Speaking simple english should be easy for me, unless it involves twisted vocabularies which make me have to think twice before speaking :/
I'm hoping to learn tricks of learning and memorizing vocabularies though.. somebody help huhu

listening to music also helps, but it should be a more specific genre of music. Music with a lot of words may do.

I suggest listening to country, because country music usually tells a story. And country singers are usually story tellers, so their pronunciation, diction, and pitch should be perfect. :D

I'm not good on listening, I can barely hear what the DJs say in the radio. But I prefer to use english subtitle instead of indonesian, and sometimes I try to hear what the movies had said.

How do I learn English?

By reading, listening, and speaking. Haha :p

well, I might as well tell my little history like some of you guys did here... first when I was in grade 4 I had an English subject. Since then it somehow became my passion (I dunno why lol).
Then, when I was in grade 7 I took an English course at ILP for about 4 years. After that I continued my English course at Wall Street Institute to improve my speaking confidence. That took about 2 or 3 years. That's such a long time I spent on studying English huh? Lol
Well.. I must say those extra courses did help me a lot at school especially during the English class.
But it wasn't enough. Being good at writing in English does not necessarily make a person good at speaking it. Even studying at Wall Street Institute did not make a significant difference for me from studying in other English schools. I felt like a loser after those many years of studying English but still wasn't fluent enough to speak it out loud.

But thankfully, now I've been studying in a place where the lectures are taught in English so here I am pushed to speak English for presentations, write in English for essays, and listen to English in every lecture. Now, my speaking has improved quite much (I hope so. Lol).

To me, being able to speak English confidently is the most important thing in learning English. :)

my english was awful when I got the first English class back on 4th grade. I got terrible score until 6th grade. After I played RPG,my score got better and better. Basically by playing RPG,it helped me to improve my vocabulary. Everytime I didn't know about any words,I opened my dictionary. My grammar still terrible until my early 20's,after I enrolled into EF,that's where I fixed my grammar. Listening to western music and my obsession with Hollywood movies and tv series also helped tremendously. :cool:

Deskripsi diri: Bruh dont hate me coz Im evil
Duduuunnn

I learned my English primarily through the same media as mostly anyone here(probably), which is through school and games. Though in middle school our family applied for cable TV and I ended up watching hella lots of English Cartoons in Cartoon Network and Disney Channel. (I can still remember how much English I absorbed from Kim Possible)
I did have some help however. My mom used to be (and now is back to be) an English tuition teacher. Aside from her tutoring me from time to time back in my school days, her language-learning-inclined genetics passed down to me too. So I can pretty much assume that I'm pretty good at picking up new languages.
All those are reinforced further when the internet became popular, and I joined a few very active English-only forums. I even got into writing, and I can confidently say that my written works in English are far superior compared to those ones written in Indonesian. (esp after I pretty much abandoned Indonesian language when I was abroad hAHAH)

If I were to suggest some tips for learning English, I'd say the best way is to learn from native or fluent speakers. Pressure yourself not to be able to access your comfort zone. Force yourself only to talk English, only to read English, to write English. Your brain will give soon enough, probably, and you'll start picking up the language like a toddler (hypothesis only, not tested 9u9)

On a side note I'm willing to be your resident Grammar Nazi :pecut:

Btw, I learned English a lot (and got really interested in English) when I played [color=#80FF40]Harvest Moon[/color] on PSX, and gosh, that was like 15 years ago. I still love that game. :fallinlove:

Maybe almost everyone struggled before in English. Me, myself got so many uncountable worst marks in English when I was in highschool. Girls, learning English and languages are easy. Love it and you will learn it fast. I myself started to learn understanding music and movies. It was hard for the first attempt, but just hear and not trying to understand really helps. It gives you the language and how it is used. Unconsciously your brain understand. Then after that I read some english books and I collect a lot of english series, mostly fantasy, I improved my vocab and my grammar (even I do still have a lot of mistakes) but it is a learning process. I took some courses but didn't help that much.

Deskripsi diri: Sedang mencari jati diri.
Hi all, I'm a new member here hehe.

I really love language esp. English. I first started learning English when I was in elementary school I guess. I took some courses from 1st Grade up till 12th Grade.

I also love to listen to music or watch movie without any subtitles as it's kind of force your brain to understand what are the words. Of course it will be hard at first, but you will get the hang of it. Harry Potter series, or Grey's Anatomy are some examples of good English with one stand as British English and the other is American.

From there, I also force myself to speak like them. I started to mimic their accent. It was hard though, but now the fruits can be harvested. I've been recognized as one of the best English Speakers (in British-American Accent) in my college. Although, I do need to learn more about grammar, anyone here would love to teach me? hehe

I also took TOEFL Preparation Class, and did both PBT and IBT TOEFL test, the results were not disappointing.

You have to love what you want to learn, then it will become your daily activities. Don't think learning English as a big burden.

Sorry for any misspelling or grammatical error or unnecessary words hehhee.

I learn by going to courses at first, until 6th grade... and then it's just with books, games, and the internet. I love classical English literature (mainly from the Victorian period) and sometimes got complaints from obscure references and out of fashion vocabulary ('playing charades' anyone?)

Kutipan:
what kind of reading? I found that Bram Stoker's or Alexandre Dumas' help a lot on reading English journal :>


I read Alexandre Dumas as well! :D
