6 Things you MUST not do while Learning the English Language

If you are in the process of learning the English Language, we are sure you must have got umpteen numbers of suggestions and tips to learn the language faster and competently.

But what learners are often not told is what they must avoid when learning the English Language. So here, we tell you some of the things you must avoid if you want to speed up the process of learning the English Language.

What all you MUST not do while learning the English Language?

    1. Do not limit the learning only to your classroom 

      The first thing that you need to stop doing immediately is to limit the learning only to the classroom. Remember that learning any language and not just the English Language is a non-stop process and it must not end inside the classroom.

    2. Do not shy away from using the language in front of others 

      Now that you have taken the plunge to learn the English language, there should be no stopping you from getting your goal, even if that means speaking whatever you have learned with the people around you. Remember, you are not allowed to feel shy or be afraid of making mistakes. Learning a new language is about practice, practice and more practice.

    3. Do not believe ‘English is difficult!!’ 

      Once you set your foot forward to learn the language, stop believing anyone who tells you that learning the English Language is difficult. Remember that you can do just anything you put your mind to. Often a lot of people believe that English is difficult to learn due to different pronunciations, accents, spellings, and diverse grammar rules. But it should be noted how English is spoken around the world and is among the most spoken languages of the world. This itself goes to prove that English is not so difficult after all.

    4. Do not compare yourself to other learners 

      While this is true for any other learning process, remember not to compare yourself with the other learners specifically when you are learning English. Learning English is a personal process that you cannot compare with anyone around. So be gentle and kind to yourself and enjoy the learning process just as you would enjoy learning driving or swimming.

    5. Do not let grammar get into the way of learning 

      The rules of English Grammar are meant to help understand the basics of the language. However, it has been noticed that when the learners begin to use the language (speaking or writing), the same rules tend to confuse them. The idea is to use grammar to simplify the language and not get entangled in the rules. So start with using the simpler rules first and then go on to adding the ones that might be a little confusing.

    6. Do not postpone speaking in English
      Once you are in the process of learning the language, do not postpone the opportunity of speaking to others in English. You might do this with the fear of making mistakes or feeling shy to use the language. Either way, you will defeat the basic purpose of learning the language.

Online Practice platforms such as Gurully.com play a very important role in the process of learning the English Language. Use them as a friend, philosopher and a guide.
