EVERY DAY ENGLISH IMMERSION


There's no doubt that the best way to learn a language is spending time in the country where it's spoken.  It will improve your fluency skills and it will give you the cultural context of the language, too.  Listening to spoken English in the classroom is completely different to listening to it on the London streets.
But nowadays it's quite easy to get some immersion in English every day in your own home. Here are 5 practical tips on how you can immerse in English easily every day.

1- LEARN A LITTLE EVERY DAY. Learning a language takes practice. The more regularly you practice, the better you'll improve. The best way of getting this practice is having a daily routine. A little every day is better than once a week. 20 or 30 minutes a day will be enough.

2- LEARNING BELONGS TO YOU. Choose what you're interested in. If you don't like reading, don't read books in English. But if you love football, immerse into football, looking up sport articles in English, watching football matches in English or listening to sport boradcasts.

3- READ ONLINE MAGAZINES, ARTICLES & BLOGS. Immersing into English now is so easy as there is lots of online information avalaible. Online newspaper and magazine articles are a quick and effective way of getting your daily dose of English. Again choose from your interests.

4- WATCH TV SHOWS & FILMS. There are many TV shows streamed and on demand on the internet. Watch films on DVD, you can watch them with English &/or Spanish subtitles. 

5- LISTENING TO MUSIC & POSCASTS. Songs are a wonderful way of practice you English and listening skills. if you prefer to listen to spoken radio programmes you can listen 6/or download podcasts.

Whatever you choose, the most important thing to remember is to make your immersion experience fun, practical and convenient.
