How to learn English from home
Learning English from home is one of the greatest ways to learn it. You don’t need to leave your home and also, you can make your own learning environment. You can do it in your pajamas, sweatsuit or your underwear (whatever is comfortable for you). People think that traveling abroad can help you to improve your English, but that is not true. If you are a beginner, the best way of learning English is taking an Online English course which you can do it from your lovely home. Read about our useful tips on our website and don’t forget about English lessons that we prepared for you at the Speak Academy.
You like to watch movies?
You can learn English while you are watching movies. How? Listen! Listening is crucial in English. Chose the movie that you like and put an English subtitle. We can’t always understand what our favorite actors are talking about, so, if you are watching movie on your computer and pause the scene, write down the word that you didn’t understand and google it to find the meaning of the word. You can improve your vocabulary in this way!
Listening English songs
You like English music but you don’t understand it? Try to find lyrics and to translate the song. That can be very useful. You will learn a lot of new vocabulary and also, you will feel very confident because you are doing it by yourself.
Take an Online English course
Here at the Speak Academy, you have many different language courses. One of them is the English course. If you don’t know what level of your knowledge is, don’t worry! We will help you! We will test your knowledge and tell you what the suitable level is for you (Beginner level, Intermediate or Advanced). When we finish with testing you can start your course. Everything is easily accessible and it will not demand a lot of your time. If you are a beginner, first you will learn some vocabulary, then, you will practice with sentences and afterward, you will start with listening audio and watching video lessons which can help you to improve your pronunciation. We prepared many interesting texts for reading, quizzes and, tests that can summary your acquired knowledge of English.
Tongue Twister are a very interesting and funny game. You need to read the words very quickly without making a mistake and to repeat the sentence several times. This exercise will help you to improve your pronunciation. E.g.
” Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter”
“She sells seashells by the seashore”
Interesting, isn’t it?
Reading a book
If you want to learn English better you should start with reading some English books. It is also a good idea to buy one book written in your native language and the same one in English. Here, not only that you will improve your reading, you will also learn many new words in English.
Use your English every day
You need to be surrounded by English every day. Practice with your friends. Talk about topics that you usually do, but try it in English! You can also practice by yourself, like you are preparing yourself for a public speech. Stand in front of the mirror and start talking! You can record yourself, and play it later, to check if you made any mistakes.
Practice at your work
If you are working in an office, start by naming things that you see e.g. (office desk, copy machine, paperclip, chair, documents…) then, try to name your obligations (sending emails, answering phone calls, talking with clients…). How do we call people who are working with you? You can find out for yourself.

Meet other people
You probably don’t live in some of the English-speaking countries, but you can always meet native speakers online. Talk to them. Learn about their culture, rules, different accents, see how many words you understand exactly. See what phrases they are using while they are talking to you and write them down. You can become friends, and visit them. But first, you will need to handle basics in English. You can’t talk with foreigners if you don’t know a single word in English. Here, the Speak Academy can help you a lot! First basics of English, then practicing conversation.
You should have fun!
Learning English is not boring. You can make it more vivid and fun! It’s up to you! When you are tired of just learning you can take a break and play some games, do crossword puzzles that can increase your vocabulary, play memory games-remember the sentence, learn how to introduce yourself, guess the gender (man or woman), sing your favorite songs (you can write lyrics on some sticky notes and put them on the wall, surround yourself with English), play tongue twisters with your friends that will make you laugh and at the same time you will have a lot of fun and you will learn many new words.
