How To Improve Your English
08th Dec, 2015
Life in a new country can be a struggle at first. Different cultures, different food, new lifestyles and a new language!
Here at Your World Healthcare, we’re always looking for ways of improving your relocation process, so we’ve compiled a list of tips to aid you in achieving the skills you need to do so:
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes when speaking. You’re more likely to remember it once you know the correct way
- Try Audiobooks – it will help you get comfortable with the accent and the phonetics of the language, even your unconsciousness can help you study! (there has been some research into learning a language whilst asleep: http://www.forbes.com/sites/daviddisalvo/2014/07/28/how-to-really-learn-a-foreign-language-while-you-sleep/)
- Read out loud in English! It will give you confidence and you will feel assured of yourself when approaching others.
- Follow soap operas on the TV – it will introduce you to cultural environments, local accents and to different slangs/abbreviations
- Conversation lessons – if your problem is speaking you may want to try these. You can arrange for this to be done via Skype
- English Speaking Mode – Try thinking in English from the start, instead of thinking in your mother language. Translate it and then speak
- Specialist English Course – Consider taking an online English Course that is tailor-made for your area of work
There are plenty of mobile apps and computer software available which can also teach you a new language (some free, some subscription) to consider.
We hope these steps have been of use and that you feel more confident in your move!
