The easy and fast way to learn English for Programming
Mikael Aleksanyan 11:32 AM ProgrammingIn the first post, we discussed "Why is English important for programming?" question. And we understand how important is English for Programmers. In this post, I'll show you some ways to learn English very fast.
Maybe at first look, this post seems strange for you, but after the try, your opinion will change immediately.
This is tested method and working 100%.
When you decided to learn English, you started to search for video tutorials or for some books which will teach you English from your mother language. But it's not the best method because with video tutorials you can learn only some words, how to pronounce them but you can't learn to speak English very well.
Yeah, books are a great way to work on your grammar but again you can't start talking with people English.
All you need is communicate with people, practice is the power. It will be great if you know some basics of English. All you need is a computer, internet and microphone. The internet is the best place to find a people to chat in English. Search on Google for video chat and in a new tab open up Google Translate. So you can select a simple chat or chat with cam. It will be great with a webcam because you can explain with hands and emotions. You can ask your chat partner to write all text on chat and paste the text on Google translate to translate it to your mother language. Now to answer him/her type the text on Google Translate to convert it to English.
You need to be a patient, its need a time and your forces.
When you learned some basics with chatting then it's time to try to speak, use listen to function on Google Translate and learn how to pronounce the word or even a sentence.
With this method, you are doing your first steps.
When you get some skills in English by the method given above, you need to go to the next step.
Now you can communicate with people in English.
So its time to read some books, watch movies, cartoons in English. I highly recommend watching cartoons, because in cartoons you can hear simple sentences and understand them with actions of characters.
There are also some methods which will help you to get "stronger" in English.
First one is to watch a YouTube videos, you know there are a different type of channels. If you watch a traveller's channel you can learn the pronunciation of country names which is important to know.
And the last thing I can say is to play online games, where you can learn how the American people speak English, using the slang.
If you want to achieve something you need to keep practicing.
