    Default The best best way to learn english

    Well, i never went to learn english in no one site and in my power i've got the possibility of read texts and hear some words and understand this. My lessons comes from my childhood when i played english texts games and i tried to understand this.

    However, my english continue being bad because i never practice enough it. In my opinion, the best best way to learn english isn't a teacher (unless it is personal and intesive) but practice with audios, videos, music and games because you would be connected with a direct relationship and with concepts. The concepts, today with internet, there are in internet within easy reach.

    I'm waiting opinions of it.

    Regards!

    Hello Pointer.

    I think the best way to learn English, or any language, is to study the basic rules of sentence construction and grammar. Learning solely with audio, videos, music and games will be a matter of memorizing what you hear. That will not teach you how to form a sentence of your own and it can teach bad grammar. With a basic understanding of the language you can then begin to practice with such media. Personally, I think the BEST way to learn is to live in a place where the language is spoken, i.e., immerse yourself on a 24/7 basis in an environment where you have to speak only that language order to survive.

    Yeah, it's true, i forgot that point, the best way is immerse in a country with native anglospeakers and live there. In a few months is possible to speak english very good (it depends on how one relates to others). I'd love to go to USA and work there but from what i can read in the news umployment grows and Trump (possible next president) is hating foreigners so i can't

    I will search and study the basic rules of sentence construction and grammar for refresh concepts. I said refresh because, here in Argentina, in the high school we learn english almost every years and it's a great help to take some freedom reading, writing and understanding conversations. Talk is more hard.

    Thanks for your opinion vicente, thank you very match.

    Pointer, don't give up on coming the USA. Even if Mr. trump is elected our country will continue to welcome visitors and immigrants, especially from countries like our friends in Argentina.

    Meanwhile, if you can't immerse, the second best way, in my opinion, in conjunction with listening to audios, videos, music and games, would be to find a friend who speaks English fluently and spend as much time as you can conversing in English. This is good because it gives you the opportunity to ask questions and practice with a live person.

    Hi!

    It seems that the simplest way is by taking pills!

    La mejor manera de llegar a nuestro cerebro es a través del torrente sanguíneo con nanorobots, así que podremos aprender idiomas con tan sólo tomar una pastilla.

    Well, it was this futurist who predicted WiFi and the touchscreen!

    It seems that this pill will be available for everyone within the next 30 years.

    I wouldn't mind taking it for Chinese!

    But if it can put information in your brain maybe can also change yours ideas and convictions and maybe you never would know it. As if you reflect and you believe know more about something.

    I know, i am a little bit skeptical but with reason, really?
