Why It is Important to Learn English...

English is spoken as a first language by about 375 million, as a second language by as many people and as a foreign language by around 750 million. It has official or special status in at least 70 countries and is being learned by about a billion people. These numbers alone make English important to learn.

1. Major tourist destinations such as the United States, Great Britain and Australia all use English as a primary language. In addition, even non-speaking English countries often offer tourist services in English.

2. Much of the world's movies, music and books is in English. You can experience this media first-hand without an imperfect translation getting in the way.

3. Knowing the language facilitates your use of the World Wide Web because most of the world's stored information and web pages are in English.

4. When a Japanese manager, a Mexican manufacturer and French customer meet in an international location, they communicate in English, since that has become the world language for business.

5. English is the medium of communication in such fields as aviation and science. Jobs in these fields, unless highly localized, will be closed off to you if you don't speak English.

How To Learn English!

Here are some tips which may help you to master the English Language!

Speak without Fear
The biggest problem most people face in learning a new language is their own fear.  They worry that they won’t say things correctly or that they will look stupid so they don’t talk at all.  Don’t do this.  The fastest way to learn anything is to do it – again and again until you get it right.  Like anything, learning English requires practice.  Don’t let a little fear stop you from getting what you want.
Use all of your Resources
Even if you study English at a language school it doesn’t mean you can’t learn outside of class.  Using as many different sources, methods and tools as possible, will allow you to learn faster.  There are many different ways you can improve your English, so don’t limit yourself to only one or two.  The internet is a fantastic resource for virtually anything, but for the language learner it's perfect.

Surround Yourself with English
The absolute best way to learn English is to surround yourself with it.  Take notes in English, put English books around your room, listen to English language radio broadcasts, watch English news, movies and television.  Speak English with your friends whenever you can. The more English material that you have around you, the faster you will learn and the more likely it is that you will begin “thinking in English.” .

Listen to Native Speakers as Much as Possible
There are some good English teachers that have had to learn English as a second language before they could teach it.  However, there are several  reasons why many of the best schools prefer to hire native English speakers. One of the reasons is that native speakers have a natural flow to their speech that students of English should try to imitate.  The closer Lincoln English Jakarta students can get to this rhythm or flow, the more convincing and comfortable they will become. 

Watch English Films and Television
This is not only a fun way to learn but it is also very effective.  By watching English films (especially those with English subtitles) you can expand your vocabulary and hear the flow of speech from the actors.  If you listen to the news you can also hear different accents.

Listen to English Music
Music can be a very effective method of learning English.  In fact, it is often used as a way of improving comprehension.  The best way to learn though, is to get the lyrics (words) to the songs you are listening to and try to read them as the artist sings.  There are several good internet sites where one can find the words for most songs. This way you can practice your listening and reading at the same time.  And if you like to sing, fine.

Study As Often As Possible!
Only by studying things like grammar and vocabulary and doing exercises, can you really improve your knowledge of any language. 

Do Exercises and Take Tests
Many people think that exercises and tests aren't much fun.  However, by completing exercises and taking tests you can really improve your English. One of the best reasons for doing lots of exercises and tests is that they give you a benchmark to compare your future results with.  Often, it is by comparing your score on a test you took yesterday with one you took a month or six months ago that you realize just how much you have learned.  If you never test yourself, you will never know how much you are progressing. Start now by doing some of the many exercises and tests on this site, and return in a few days to see what you've learned. Keep doing this and you really will make some progress with English.

Record Yourself
Nobody likes to hear their own voice on tape but like tests, it is good to compare your tapes from time to time.  You may be so impressed with the progress you are making that you may not mind the sound of your voice as much.

Listen to English
By this, we mean, speak on the phone or listen to radio broadcasts, audiobooks or CDs in English. This is different than watching the television or films because you can’t see the person that is speaking to you.  Many learners of English say that speaking on the phone is one of the most difficult things that they do and the only way to improve is to practice.

Why English Class is important ?
Whether you are taking an English Class in middle school, high school  or graduate school, you may wonder why English matters, particularly if you plan to study or work in a field in which you think English is irrelevant. Possibly the most important reason to take an English class is its relevance to virtually all fields and careers. Wherever speaking, writing or critical thinking is required, English class is useful.
Critical Thinking
1. Analyzing literature in English class challenges you to understand characters' motivations, cultural contexts, and the causes and effects of various actions in stories' plot lines. Learning to analyze literature effectively not only teaches you how to better enjoy books, music and film, but also how to better understand the causes and effects taking place in your family, neighborhood and the world around you. English teaches you to understand your world with nuance and conviction.
Close Reading
2. When teachers ask you to closely analyze a poem or section from a story in English class, the assignment usually asks you to read slowly and to look for metaphors, hear the sounds of the words and figure out as many possible meanings for the text as you can. Close reading teaches you to read between the lines, which is important for everyday tasks such as reading instructions, reading contracts, deciding which hotel to stay in or choosing a mortgage.
3. Most people learn to write well in English class. Learning to express yourself concisely, accurately and convincingly is not simply a box to check on an assessment test or a grading rubric; if you hope to write emails that earn respect, to enter any career in which communication is essential or simply to speak with authority, learning to write well is important.
4. Students learn about their own and other cultures not only through reading culturally relevant literature in English class, but also through discussion and writing exercises that draw on students' biases, feelings and previous knowledge about human cultures to help students rethink their assumptions. English class is important for helping you appreciate diversity, develop sensitivity and, perhaps most importantly, contribute to the future of culture through your writing and critical thinking.
Vocabulary and Grammar
5. Because English emphasizes reading and writing, your vocabulary and grasp of English grammar will improve if you take English class seriously. The more words you have at your fingertips, and the more comfortable you are using them accurately in sentences, the easier it will be for you to communicate with others. If you speak or hope to speak other languages, studying English vocabulary and grammar will often make learning other languages easier.

Why Reading?

You probably know that even in your own language reading is regarded as important because it can be entertaining and educational, can open up new worlds and enrich your life, and can improve hand-eye co-ordination and enhance social skills.
But for learning a foreign language, in this case English, reading in that language has additional important benefits that can help you learn the language faster and more completely.
Reading is an essential skill for language learners. When your reading skills improve, your listening, speaking and writing skills improve too. Here are some of the specific reasons why English learners are encouraged to read in English:
  • The constant repetition of words and patterns in reading helps you learn and remember vocabulary and grammar structures.
  • Reading helps you become familiar with the rhythm of English. Over time it will start to feel natural and you will notice when a sentence or phrase doesn't seem right.
  • Unlike conversation, reading is something you can do on your own.
  • Reading is not expensive, often free.
  • Good reading skills can improve your other language skills. You need to learn to read before you can write.
  • Reading is the best way to learn and remember the proper spelling of words.
  • Listening as you read along can help you improve your pronunciation skills.
If you want to improve your English, learn to love reading in English. The best readers often get the best grades, jobs and opportunities.

What To Read ?

Are you overwhelmed by the reading materials that are available? Without spending a penny, you can read printed texts (books, magazines, newspapers at the library), online materials (websites and blogs), and e-books (on your mobile devices).
Think about what you like to read in your native language. Can you find these written materials in English?

10 Reading Tips

  1. Read at a level slightly lower than what you understand. You should not have to look up a lot of words. It's okay to look up a few words.
  2. Make reading a ritual. Choose a time and place to read every day or week. Commit to this reading time as if it were a job.
  3. Read what interests you.
  4. Understand what you'll be tested on. If you're working on your reading skills for a particular test, make sure to learn about the test. There may be specific formats such as advertisements that you'll have to read in the test.
  5. Find free reading materialsProject Gutenberg is an excellent source, but be careful with public domain books that are written in outdated English. Some words and expressions are no longer in use.
  6. Visualize what you are reading. Some people try to imagine they are reading a movie or a how-to video.
  7. Listen and read. Find podcasts or videos that have transcripts and read along silently. You can also read out loud with the recording.
  8. Relate what you read to your own life. How does the reading apply to you?
  9. Think about the author or journalist.  How would the reading differ if you were the author?
  10. Check your eyesight. If you haven't had your eyesight checked in the last few years, make an appointment.

Reading Strategies

Here are some strategies for improving your comprehension skills.
  • Skim: read for the brief idea or overview.
  • Scan: read for specific details or a specific reason.
  • KWL: determine what you Know about the topic, what you Want to know, and what you Learned.
  • Skip: if you don't understand a word or section, keep reading ahead. Come back to the section or word again and try to figure out the meaning. Use a dictionary if necessary.
  • Look for headings, subtitles and keywords.
  • Read out loud: children read out loud when they first start reading. You can too. Get comfortable hearing your English voice.
  • Create timelines or charts: reorganize what you read in a different format.
  • Rewrite in a different tense.
  • Rewrite in a different format: for example, rewrite an article in letter or list form.
  • Illustrate: if you think you’re a visual learner, sketch images or an info-graphic related to what you read.
