Some bloggers believe the problems that English learners have come about as a result of ‘traditional language schools’.
Well, I teach at a language school in Moravia and the school received an official complaint because I was talking about.. Australia!
I’ve lived in Canada, Scotland, England, and come from Melbourne – surely students would appreciate some tips on how to get by in these countries..?
Actually, not everyone.
I don’t think it’s the schools which are ‘traditional’ but rather a lot of Czech students just want to stick to learning about grammar.
But you’re different. If I I could give you two big tips on how to improve your English:
- Focus on your vocabulary – if you can concentrate on this one area, your whole English communication skills will improve.
- Culture matters too – I’ve lived in several English-speaking cities and can tell you that small talk, knowing friendly conversational phrases and being able to interact with people is essential for building relationships.
