Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

As a teacher, I often find myself giving students advice on how to learn languages.  This makes sense, I mean after all, I have 20 years’ experience as a teacher, I have studied language learning and I am a language learner myself.

On the English Students Worldwide Facebook page we have been asking people to give their tips for how to learn languages more quickly.  We have had lots of responses from teachers, but that is not really enough.

You see, everybody is unique.  There is no one perfect way to learn a language (believe me, if there was I would be a rich man by now).  What works for me, might not work for everybody else.

This is why, in my classes, I always try to find some space to encourage students to share their ideas and language learning strategies.  Sometimes I hear things that I think would never work for me, but they obviously work for that student, so why couldn’t they work for another learner?
