How to Study English
If you grew up in an Anglo-Saxon country (e.g. United States, United Kingdom, Canada, etc.), speaking English probably comes as naturally as breathing. However, for many native speakers, reading and writing in English isn’t so natural. Learning how to communicate effectively in written English requires a lot of education and study. Below we’ll introduce you to several strategies and skills that will help you improve (and enjoy) your study of the English language – both inside and outside of the classroom.
Get extra help
If you want to improve your writing and mastery of English, then ask for help from your teacher or get an English tutor. English, especially written English, is one of those subjects that is difficult to “figure out” on your own. Learning how to write correctly is far easier, and more productive, when you’re able to learn from those who’ve mastered this skill.
Take good notes
Note taking is an important strategy for success in any academic subject, but it is particularly important when learning to read and write English. Note taking is essential to the study of English for several reasons. First, note taking forces you to write things down. As you write down important concepts, rules and ideas they move from your short-term to your long-term memory. Second, good note taking requires active listening which forces you to pay close attention to what is being taught and what’s meaningful. Finally, you can use your notes to review and prepare for English exams.
The following are tips for taking good notes.
- Make sure your notes are clear and accurate.
- Focus your notes on what the teacher indicates is important.
- Come to class prepared and having completed all assignments.
- Compare your notes with those of other students.
- Try to avoid distractions (talking with friends, sitting where there is noise, etc.)
- Make sure your notes are organized (see the The Cornell System for Taking Notes)
- Use abbreviations and symbols for long words to save time.
- Write legibly so your notes are useful to you later.
- Review your notes immediately after class and then again before your next class.
- Write down any questions you have.
Pay attention in class
Regardless of whether you’re in high school or attending college, go to class and pay attention. Paying attention in class seems like a no brainer, but it’s a big reason students struggle in English. Not only do you need to learn English, you need to learn what it is that your teacher or instructor finds important. There is a science to English reading and writing, but the subject is also a bit objective at times. If you want to perform well in your class, you need to learn what it is that your instructor is looking for. The best way to do this is by attending class and paying attention.
