Notas do Editor

  • Introduction
    Thank you for being here
    We’re gonna talk about how to improve our English
  • Be a global citizen
    Widen your horizons
    Open yourself to a new culture

    So what about me??

  • All of us have learned English in school
    No one is completely ignorant when it comes to English
    Use your passive knowledge

    So what are the problems we face when it comes to English??
  • Don’t memorize new word
    You’ve to have an actual experience with the word to memorize
    Use the word; put it in a sentence!
    Don’t always resort to dictionaries, try to guess it!!
    Don’t worry about grammar. It’ll come with practice
    Learn by mistakes
  • If you don’t practice, you will never speak English
  • Start with “Listening, Speaking”
    Then move on to “reading & writing”
    Not the other way around as we’re used to in our amazing education system!!

    What do you think we need to work on first
  • Movies with English subtitles
    Listen to it more than on time, many times
    Say what you hear
  • Talk to yourself (not in the bathroom cuz that’s weird)
    Always repeat what you say in English
    Think in English
    Speak slowly to speak faster
  • Speak slowly and clearly
    No politics or religion
    Avoid topics that’ll invite heated arguments
  • Make mistake and learn from them
  • Talk about stress (contest verb and noun)
    “….tion, ….ment” and other endings
    Periods, commas & question marks
  • Interacting with the language
    Using the language
    Misspelled words like (foreign, science, believe, etc)
  • Google “MOOC”
