Even though English is considered an accessible and relatively easy language to learn, with 750,000 words and spelling that can throw even the most experienced learner off, learning English quickly can seem impossible. But I'm here to tell you that it isn't — if you have the appropriate approach in place.

Here are some of our best strategies for learning English quickly:

1. Pay attention to patterns:

For English learners, this is the most vital tip.

Language is difficult to categorize into precise norms, because rules are frequently twisted or broken.

As a result, the best thing to do is look for patterns and things that are universally true in English.

Finding patterns will help you notice details such as "verbs in the past generally end in -ed."

You'll also notice groups of words that we frequently use together. Consider the following scenario:

“We’d love to visit you.”

“We’d love to have you on that function.”

“We’d love to meet you.”

“We’d like to come visit.”

These patterns will save your time and efforts when speaking English, as well as allowing you to use language more naturally in the future.

2. Engage in activities that you enjoy, in English:

The greatest approach to learn English is to practice it on a regular basis and in a way that keeps you wanting to learn more.

Some people enjoy learning English more than anything else, and it is a source of enjoyment for them. However, the majority of us have other hobbies as well. 

Consider something you already enjoy doing and try to find methods to do it in English.

Consider the following scenario:

"Do you like to play video games on the internet?" Join English-speaking platforms or set your device to English every time you turn it on to obtain regular exposure to the language.

"Do you participate in team sports?" Participate in your sport with an English-speaking group in your town. Even outside of English-speaking countries, expat communities with a mix of foreigners and locals can be found.

"Do you enjoy other activities such as knitting, sculpture, yoga, or music?" Great! The same principle applies: see if there is an English-speaking group with a similar pastime near you and see if you can join them.

This way, you'll be exposed to English on a daily basis while doing something you enjoy.

You'll be astonished at how much you'll pick up from your new acquaintances!

3. Concentrate on more than just memorizing grammar rules:

Some individuals say that grammar is the most important aspect of language learning and that it demands all of your focus.

Others believe grammar is beneficial, but that it is only a small part of the entire language problem.

The second group recognizes that grammatical norms are hazy, frequently broken, and frequently come with a list of exceptions and unique use situations.

Furthermore, widely used languages such as English are always changing.

Although the truth is most likely somewhere in the middle, the point is this:

Don't expect to be able to speak excellent English after memorizing grammar rules.

4. Schedule structured study time into your day:

The majority of language acquisition specialists think that regular exposure is the best way to acquire a language.

Finding a regular time to think about English, even if it's only five or ten minutes a day, will help you learn new topics faster than you forget them.

Find a pace and time that is sustainable for you and your schedule.

It doesn't have to be two-hour sessions; perhaps just the first 10 minutes after you get up will enough.

Busuu has a Study Plan function that allows you to schedule and set reminders for your language learning.

Make language study a habit, and make sure it's one you can maintain.

5. Consider how you'll employ English:

Consider why you're studying English (e.g. to study abroad, travel, or for business).

Consider the kind of situations in which you'll use English.

If you're studying, you'll most likely be listening to extensive lectures and taking notes in English.

When traveling, on the other hand, you're more likely to need a variety of words that you're comfortable using in various contexts.

You'll need to be able to listen to someone on the phone (with no body language to guide you) and answer appropriately if you'll be doing business over the phone.

Each of these scenarios is unique, which means you should probably do more or less listening, reading, writing, and speaking depending on the occasion.

6. Don't strive for perfection. Nobody is perfect:

The most difficult aspect of learning English is getting over the fear of seeming dumb or not being perfect.

Most of us are considerably more fluent and brilliant in our native tongues, and it can be uncomfortable to step into another language and lose our familiarity with words and phrases.

We believe that if we sound ignorant, others will criticize us or think less of us.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes, learn from them, and try again.

This is true of any new language, and making mistakes and errors is an inevitable part of the learning process.

Also, keep in mind that the purpose of language is to communicate.

If you were able to say anything and someone else comprehended it, you were successful.

7. Read everything you can get your hands on in the following order:

If it's in English, read it: classic literature, paperbacks, newspapers, websites, emails, your social media feed, cereal boxes. Why? This content will be chock-full of exciting new language, as well as those you may already be familiar with. This aids rapid improvement since re-exposure to previously taught vocabulary provides new examples in context, reinforcing those words in your mind. Learning new words and expressions, on the other hand, is critical to expanding your vocabulary, especially in a language like English, which has so many! However, don't just read and go on; you must also...

8. Make a conscious effort to remember new vocabulary:

This is a tried-and-true tip for a reason: it works! We often appreciate a new term or phrase so much when we're learning it that forgetting it seems impossible. But believe us when we say that not everything sticks the first time. To combat this, make it a habit to carry a quirky notepad with you or use a tool like Evernote. When you hear or read a new term or expression, write it down in context: in a sentence with its meaning recorded. This saves you time because you won't have to go back to that word and think, "What did that word/expression imply again?"

9. Interact with real people:

What is the purpose of a language if not to communicate? Sure, we humans have mastered the art of communicating without speaking – thank you, Whatsapp! – but When it comes down to it, though, speaking a language rather than reading or writing it helps it stick in your head significantly better. Consider how many times you've heard someone say, "I understand, but I don't speak English." Many aspiring English speakers have made conversation into an impenetrable barrier that only serves to psyche them out. Don't be that way. Look out native speakers for a casual language conversation, enroll in a class, or take online programs.

10. Follow podcasts or Youtube channels (in English):

Do you enjoy a good laugh? Politics? Blogging? Cooking? There's an English-speaking podcast or Youtube channel for every subject imaginable. Subscribe to a handful and listen to or watch them while commuting to school or work. The native accents may be challenging at first, but stick with it and you'll soon be able to understand what you're hearing (along with learning a lot of new vocabulary from a native speaker!)

11. Travel abroad:

If there's a better way to learn English than living and studying in an English-speaking country, we'd love to know about it! It's no secret that English is the most widely spoken language on the planet, and with so many nations to pick from, you can find the perfect learning environment for you based on geography, weather, or your favorite city. Consider Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and South Africa, just to mention a few!

12. Make use of your friends:

Do you have friends who post in English on the internet? Don't let them slip through your fingers in your newsfeed: examine the items they share and make a commitment to exploring one or two of them each day. It may be news or magazine articles, movies, talks, blog entries, music, or anything else: as long as it's in English and the subject interests you, it'll be useful!

13. Don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions:

Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it also accelerated the language learner's progress! You'll amass a mountain of questions as you learn English. Don't let your doubts fester — be curious about them and find a way to settle them! If you're enrolled in a class, ask your teacher (after all, that's what they're there for). If you're learning on your own, don't worry: you can discover solutions in blogs or language websites, ask other students, or browse forums. You'll be glad you did it!

14. Follow in the footsteps of the stars:

Pick a native English-speaking actor or vocalist to provide variety to your studies. Now go online and look for a number of interviews they've done — and watch them! Watch for the gist once, then watch again, taking notes on any intriguing expressions or words you hear. These interviews will provide you with lots of lingo, stories, humor, and experiences to work with!

15. Begin with what you truly require:

If you keep reminding yourself of your reasons for learning, your English studies will move much faster. Are you participating in a study exchange program? Then concentrate on terminology that is relevant to your studies. Are you attending a conference in another country? Prepare a list of conversation starters to utilize with the other attendees. Are you taking a gap year? It appears that terminology related to travel and tourism will be your guide. If you jump into studying English with the expectation of learning everything at once, you're likely to be confused and burned out. Which leads us to...

16. When you're down, don't kick yourself:

When you feel like you're not making progress – which happens to all learners at some point – don't utter things like "I don't speak English" or "I'll never get this." In fact, obliterate those phrases from your dictionary! They merely serve to cloud your perception of your development and persuade you that your aspirations of speaking English fluently are unattainable. Instead, remind yourself of the larger picture by saying things like "I'm learning English and improving every day," "It's not always easy, but it's worth it," "I'm so much better than I was six months ago," and other similar words.
