Indispensable Tips for ESL Learners

TalkShop English as Second LanguageMany students of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) fret when there seems to be slow progress. The struggle, length of time, and investment can be exasperating. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO notes, “The learning process does vary with each individual. The key is to choose a credible school that employs English experts. One will also recognize the right approach to teaching that should be linked with activities of daily life to make the learning meaningful.

Viesca who took up extensive ESL teaching studies abroad offers the following tips to ESL learners:

1. Learn phrases and sentences. These will help you communicate faster than memorizing many words.

2. Do not worry about grammar rules. Few fluent speakers know the grammar rules. They have realized fluency through constant practice.

3. Do not translate words from your mother tongue. Because sentence construction is different, you may end up more confused.

4. Don’t just listen. Practice and speak English in all your dealings – at home, school, in the grocery, bank, church, and office.

Viesca assures, “Children learn language faster the natural way – starting out with listening, on to speaking, then reading, and writing. It is different with adults who are trained to read first, write, listen then speak. Yet, learning is possible given the proper teachers, lessons, and environment.

❝To have another language is to possess a second soul.❞ ‒ Charlemagne
