How do you learn English?

A couple days ago I had the chance to chat with Steve and Mark about some new ideas they’re developing.

Actually they’re not new ideas; they’re refinements or improvements on what The Linguist already does.

How does someone learn a new language such as English? Fundamentally, the process we use at The Linguist is very, very simple.

Here are some useful tips on how to learn English:

  • Pick a topic you are interested in (for example, sports)
  • Listen to native speakers, again and again and again
  • Identify words and phrases you don’t know, and find out what they mean
  • As you learn more, start to read and write in English
  • Talk to native English speakers and learn even more
  • Measure your progress continually

If you think about it, this isn’t too much different than how a baby, any baby, learns a language. Essentially, what The Linguist website does is guide you through that process very easily, very painlessly, and very quickly – without all the diapers and crying.

Steve and Mark are working on some improvements that will make the process even simpler and easier … and Steve discusses some of these thoughts on his personal blog.
