From YOUR Teacher: Ways to Study English

Hey I always tell my students if you want to become a perfect English speaker you need to expose yourself to English as much as possible every day. This is easy for students studying English in America or another English speaking country. They can simply go shopping, sit at Starbucks the whole day sipping a Latte, and even make English speaking friends. Doing this exposes them to English continuously throughout the day.

This is not as easy for international students trying to learn English in their own countries. Exposure to English is limited and often there are few native English speakers, especially in the countryside. More often their only chance to practice English is in an English conversation class.

Is there a solution to this problem? Yup....Fun Easy English.

I spent many years putting this site together for anyone interested in learning the English language. Although I provide a lot of useful information and lessons, IT IS UP TO YOU to make the time to study. Follow the study suggestions above. If you cannot find time to study at least listen to English in the background while you are doing housework, cooking and eating meals, and even while you are playing with your kids. Constant exposure to English will make vocabulary, rhythm, and intonation more familiar to you.
