How to... learn English effectively

THIS MONTH WE’RE LOOKING AT HOW TO LEARN ENGLISH EFFECTIVELY.

Language learning is easy. In fact, there’s a formula for it. It goes like this: Input + Practice = Learning.

You can find language in books, newspaper articles, DVDs, songs and a thousand other places. Input is the most important aspect of language learning. Just look at it like this: if you never heard or read anything in the target language (English), you would never learn anything. That’s really obvious. But a lot of people forget that and focus too much on things that aren't that important.
