5 Quick Tips To Help You Learn English Faster!
Cursos intensivos de inglés Sevilla
A lot of our students ask us what are some of the best ways to make the most of their free time in order to learn English. We always suggest that students try their best to immerse themselves in English.
Now, this can be quite difficult especially when you live in a non English speaking country like Spain.. So we thought we would compile this list of handy things you can do to help practice your English whilst you are at home.
1. Watch Tv Series/Netflix in English
For many of you this shouldn’t be too difficult. Many of our students already watch plenty of American/English Tv series, however unfortunately many of them watch these series with Spanish subtitles or even worse… Dubbed over in Spanish!
This is a great shame as watching Netflix/tv can be very helpful in learning languages especially in regards to pronunciation and listening.

That said,I know watching an entire episode of ‘Peaky Blinders’ in English can seem slightly daunting. I would suggest starting with something easier with shorter episodes, for example ‘Friends’ or ‘The Simpsons,’ and for longer episodes or films (45 mins +) try having the English audio with English subtitles. This will make it much easier to follow for extended periods of time.
If you don’t own a tv or a Netflix subscription, Youtube is also a great resource for entertaining/interesting videos.
Ensure that you are actually interested in the video you are watching, this will stop you from inadvertently ‘zoning out’ or getting distracted.
2. Listen to Podcasts

Another thing that we suggest for students to do is to start listening to Podcasts in English as this will help improve your overall listening ability.
At Teachify we actually create our own weekly podcasts which review recent vocabulary and topics which we have studied in class.
3. Listen to English Songs
I am sure that a lot of you already listen to plenty of music in English.
My advice would be to begin to really start listening out for the lyrics and trying your best to translate them in your head.
If you are really struggling you could always get the lyrics up and read through them. This is a great one to improve your pronunciation, grammar structures and vocabulary!
4. Read in English

Perhaps the best thing you can do to learn another language is to begin reading in that language.
Maybe start off reading children’s books (these are often very easy to understand and follow, this will teach you plenty of basic vocabulary) then maybe move onto reading the daily news in English and when you feel ready maybe try tackling some longer novels!
Once again, make sure that you are actually interested in the topic of the article/book you are reading. This will make it much easier to concentrate.
