presentation prepared by Svetlana Savina, class 9a
Слайд 2: 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. Don’t let a little fear stop you from getting what you want.
Слайд 3: 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.”
Слайд 4: Listen to English Music
Music can be a very effective method of learning English. The best way to learn though, is to get the lyrics 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 songs. This way you can practice your listening and reading at the same time. And if you like to sing, fine.
Слайд 5: Watch English Films and Television
This is 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.
Слайд 6: Do Exercises and Take Tests
Many people think that exercises and tests aren't 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. Keep doing this and you really will make some progress with English.
Слайд 7: Record Yourself
Not everybody 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.
Слайд 8: Communication
Speak on the phone in English. This is different than watching the television or films because you can’t see the person that is speaking to you. Also you may to speaking on web-camera. Speaking on the phone or web-cam is one of the most ways to improve is to practice.
