There is no superfast miracle way to learn a language. It takes time and practice. If you are serious you will probably want to look at going to an English-speaking country to study a while.

Good luck,

Corey

I read somewhere that language students have learnt a new language in a few short months by standing on a street corner and talking to the passers-by. By pure persistance, (I'm talking about hundreds of converstations lasting around a minute or so) students have been able to become fluent.

Perhaps, it's an urban myth, but it sure sounds possible to me. Smile

I really don't think there is a fast way to learn English. Just try to recall the process of learning your native language. From the first word you pronounced to the first composition you wrote, didn't it take a long time? Because English is not our native language, we are not able to speak it all the time, so practicing it whenever you can is very important. A couple of months ago I read a book about English learning by a famous English teacher in Taiwan. The author brought up a useful knack for improving English skills-speak more and write more. He said that listening and reading are simply an inputting process for our brain. If you want to improve your English skills, you must practice outputting more often, i.e. practice speaking and writing more often. I guess the knack is based on the basic operations of human brain. Because speaking and writing are a product of thinking, it is not easily to forget and you can response more naturally when encountering similar situations next time. For me, this knack really works, and I recommend it for you.

That's definately true that you can merely improve your english skills through practising, but maybe there are some more interesting and efficacious ways of exercise, such as watching movies.
I have already heard a lot of experts on english reminded their learning by watching and listening to excellent films, so why not try this fantastic way? If you don't posess the opportunity to go to the english-speaking country yourself,it does not matter.Since through watching original movies, you've already been in the imitated english environment for hours!
