Since most people on here probably didn’t grow up in a native english speaking environment, I want to share my tips with you on how you can easily passively improve your english skills!
Please keep in mind that this is only for IMPROVING on already existing skills and won’t make you a pro anytime soon!
Does this work with other languages too? Probably, but you need a foundation of existing skills.
1.) Set all your devices (computer, phone, console, tablet, etc.) to english in their system settings. You already know how to use them anyway so you will keep doing the same stuff you’re already doing while subconsciously learning english by reading english words all day. You might be asking yourself “well but what if there’s an error message that I don’t understand”… what do you usually do with error messages that you don’t understand in your own language? You google them, right? Right, so now you’re doing the exact same while also learning the english words within them!
2.) Consume english / american media. You’re probably doing that already by watching youtubers, but let’s take it a step further. Try to watch english movies without any caption, listen to english music and try to memorize and/or sing along the lyrics and play games in english. If you don’t understand something, don’t pause the movie, keep watching and try to use the context to understand.
3.) Talk and chat with natives. This one is quite obvious, but most people do not use it. Sure you can learn english through media, but there’s one thing that media won’t teach you: slang. Slang is suuuper important if you want to sound natural, natives will instantly be able to tell that you’re not native if you speak or chat in school book english!
