10 "PLACES" TO STUDY LANGUAGE (English ?)





It is the historical situation.Computer world made what empres could not. English the intercommunication tool for different purposes. Maybe Italian is great and beautiful, Finnish melodic and cheerful, Norwegian languages great grammar but it is English, we need to learn tot ravel, to use computers, to get a bit outside the bubble, for academic purposes and many other occasions.


It is an IT world and really fact that so many countries use English made English the intercommunication tool for different purposes. Maybe Italian is great and beautiful, Finnish melodic and cheerful, Norwegian languages great grammar wise, but it is English we need to learn tot ravel, to use computers, to get a bit outside the bubble, for academic purposes and many other occasions.


NOT TO MISS SOME TIPS!

1) If you doing it yourself, make a plan and check against the achieved "stepping stones';

2) Make it achievable-better easy, until you get a habit of having 6 -minutes English!

3) Share what you did on your youtube- make friends know etc

4) Get yourself a little reward - what is it? I do not know.I make a nice table for my Italian winning!

5) There are many free and paid, membership etc recourses for learning. My advice to use not one but several.


Make your own pyramid of learning:

  • VISUAL STONE

  • SPEAKING-CONVERSATION

  • READING-books, ON-Line Newspapers

  • KINESTHETIC- instructions _ sites How to- youtube

  • LOGIC- Understanding how it works!



Do your stepping stones small but steady. Cheat is good- make your target easy to achieve!

10 Project Britain by Mandy Barrow

University and Educational Bodies



Love the School Project a lot ! You might think the design is not like a glossy magazine pages, but it has it's charm and it is all real! Children and teachers created it :'British customs and traditions are famous all over the world. Our British Life and Culture website will tell you some of the fascinating facts and information about our beautiful country, in a way that is easy to read and to understand. When people think of Britain they often think of people drinking tea, eating fish and chips and wearing bowler hats, but there is more to Britain than just those things.

We have over 30,000 pages on Britain, so you are sure to find what you are looking for right here!"
