1. Introduction : Hello everybody. I hope you are doing great. Actually, as you know, there are many different English skills. There are many different tips and ways that you can use to improve your English on your own. Sometimes you don't need a teacher. You can improve your English on your own. Yes, there are some useful ways. And in this class I'm going to speak about these tips. Actually these methods and these ways are completely free, but they require you to practice. As you know, practice makes perfect. These methods and ways will help you to understand and speak real English. These methods will also help you improve your listening quickly. So in this class we are going to help you to improve your English skills through self-study. Self-study can help you speak and learn English on your own, but you have to understand the ri, methods. And in this class, we will help you to understand them. You can definitely improve your English through watching movies. You can listen to the radio. There are different other ways like reading how to use a dictionary. And in this class we are going to speak about all of these important points. It's time to ask yourself how confident you are. Your answer should be totally confident. And if this is true, you know, you can definitely learn English by yourself, right? That's great, because wherever you go, English language is your best weapon for communication with other people. And if you are confident enough, you can skip all of the expensive English courses and huge textbooks and try to do things your own way. Many English learners feel nervous about studying alone, but you soon realized that all the resources you need can be found at home. Most important thing about self-study, you become less dependent on others to learn English. Since you are studying alone, there is more motivation for you to prove that you can learn English by yourself. If there is a consistent motivation, 6S won't be hard to reach. So how can you start your self-study journey? You should find a way that you are most comfortable with and something that you enjoy at the same time. And this course will introduce the bass tips, methods, and approaches you need to self-study effectively, access English around you, set your own goals and see your own progress. Make decision about learning vocabulary. Make the most of your dictionary. Improve your pronunciation. Make the most of the books you have used the internet to improve your English and create networks of English learners in your own village, town, or country. 2. 1 set a goal : Setting your own goals and measuring your own progress. Studying alone can be fun, but it can also be difficult. It is often hard to motivate yourself when you have no one to share your learning with. And it is very hard to see how much progress you have made. As a matter of fact, we spoke to Beth narrower and English language teacher trainer in London to find out what advice you could give to people studying alone. What do you find easy to do in English? What is the most difficult thing for you? What would you like to be able to do by the end of next month? I think the biggest problem for any langue luminaries that of being able to see the progress they are making. In some situations, it is easier. For example, if you come to the UK and you don't speak English, you can see when you have made progress, son Alejandro is tans someone when they ask you a question or you can ask for something in a shop or understand articles in the newspapers. Obviously, it is much more difficult when you are learning English in your own country. So I think that the most important things for learners to due east to set themselves both long-term and short-term goals. A long-term goal could be to pass an international English exam at the end of the error has short-term goal. Could be, for example, to learn a song by heart or to be able to understand the news headings By the end of the month. In both cases, the goals need to be realistic and time-bound. It's pointless saying, I want to speak for low wind accurate English in a month. If you are not near that stage, you need to be very honest with yourself about what your strengths and weaknesses. Our time limits are also vital. If you don't give yourself a time limit, your motivation can just disappear. However, if you achieve what you want within the time you said, it can give you a real boast. What, how do you know if your goals are realistic? And how can you see when you're made progress? Here are some ideas to help you test your current level. What can you do at the moment? What is difficult for you? Try to find ways of testing yourself in different language areas. For example, to test your listening skills. Listen to the BBC, CNN news in English today. How much did you understand? Seventy-five percent. Fifty 30% percent. Make a note of how well you did in each test. Make your own action plan. And actually I'm plan is a list of your goals and what you are going to do to achieve each goal. So if you understand 30% of the newest program today, your goal might be to understand 50% in one month's time. How are you going to do this? You should plan to listen to the news every day, note down words you hear often and learn them. I record the newest programs so you can listen to more than wants to check your understanding. Try to make action plans for the other language goals you have set. Remember, however, that the time limit you give yourself has to be realistic. Learning takes time. Test yourself at the end of your time limit, when the end of the month approaches set aside some time to test your progress. For example, you could say to yourself, next Monday, I'm going to listen to the news ones and find out how much I understand. Make a note of how well you did and then make your next action plan. Taken international exam. It might be possible for you to take an internationally recognized examination such as the University of Cambridge fair certificate exam, as well as helping you see your own progress. It our national exams are a way of showing others such as employers how good your Englishes. 3. 1 check your understanding of setting a goal: Okay, let's take the understanding. Question number one, listen to the question carefully and try to understand it, and try to answer it. See if your answer is wrong or correct. Number one, in Beth's opinion, why is it easier to see or progress if you are studying in an English speaking country? So the answer raise because you begin to be able to do practical things, like understand what you hear and buy things in shops. Great job. Let's move to the next question. What are the two things necessary for good golds? Wise, each important? And the answer is, good. Goals need to be realistic and be set for a limited time. 4. 2 choosing vocabulary : Planning key or vocabulary learning. For many learners of English learning vocabulary can mean learning long lists of words by hards. Although this technique can help you remember words, How can you learn vocabulary so that you can use the words that you learn? In this course. Pal Roberts of the University of Hartford sure. In England talks to his students about how they can plan their vocabulary learning by choosing what to remember. Think about how you choose wars to learn. Do you try to learn all of the new words you find in a text? If not, what are your criteria for choosing the words you learn? Are they there? Same as those which pal suggests. We have some words for whether he or all the phrases mean the same thing. It's raining, cats and dogs. It's pouring rain. It's straining stare rods. There is torrential rain. The rain is terrible. Now, which ones are best for you to remember? Well, it's raining cats and dogs. It's a nice expression. It's very funny and so it is easy to remember, but many people wouldn't understand you if you said this. Even in England where this EDM comes from, people don't usually say this. If you're thinking of talking to different people and not just people from England, perhaps it's better to say torrential rain. Are there rain is terrible because they are easy for the people to understand. Choosing wars to learn, pal suggests you need to consider your listener. When you choose vocabulary. Will the person listening to me be able to understand this word or phrase? There are some other criteria which can help you choose vocabulary that is worth learning. Frequency. Do you hear or read this word? Often? If you find that a word or phrase crops up a lot, then it is probably a useful words for you to learn and remember. Range. Does this word cover one very specific idea or a T-s more general. Remember that if a word is very specific, you may not ever have the chance to use it. For example, cat and Miranda is a type of boat. We can use the word boat in most situations when we talk about or rivers, the sea and sailing. But because Kadima around is a specific type of boat, we cannot use it so often. Usefulness to you. If you are interested in a particular subject, then the vocabulary used to talk about that subject to will be useful to you. For example, doctors find vocabularies about illness and medicine useful. English has too many words for you to learn all of them. So you need to decide which words you want or need to learn. Tried to avoid simply memorizing lists. Instead, think about the context or the sentence in which you hear the word or phrase. This will help you remember how to use it accurately. 5. 2 check your understanding of choosing vocabulary : Okay, everybody's time to check your understanding. See how many questions you can answer. Question number one, how many ways of seeing it's raining? Very hard. Can you find in the lesson? Well, the correct answer? Raise. It's raining, cats and dogs. It's pouring rain. Aids surroundings, terrorists, rods varies. Torrential rain and the rain is horrible or the rain is terrible. Question number two. Find two reasons why it's raining. Cats and dogs isn't the most useful expression to learn. So what is your answer? Actually, many people wouldn't understand this if the heritage, it's old fashioned. People in Britain don't usually say this. Very good. Question number three. What criterion does Paul suggests for making decisions about which no vocabulary you learn? And the correct answer for this question is choose words which all their people will understand when you use them. This is the best answer that actually powerful suggests. Great. If your answer is wrong, I suggest you to come back. Can 3B the listen. 6. 3 using the dictionary : Making the most of your dictionary when they begin to learn English, many learners by a dictionary. But what makes a good dictionary? And how can you use it's best for self-study. Beth, now here're, talks about the advantages and disadvantages of dictionaries. Let's understand these tips and techniques. You can find many things in dictionary apart from the meaning of the words you are looking up, try to make a list of different kinds of information a dictionary can give you. How many of your ideas do you find in this lesson? Dictionaries can be really useful, but they can be problematic to, particularly if the student is using a bilingual dictionary. As a teacher, I really dislike those new electronic dictionaries because they often give the students misleading information. For example, if a word has more than one meaning, that bilingual dictionary may make a list of possible translation. And it's possible for the student to choose which one is right. On the other hand, if there is only a one meaning that bilingual dictionary is a very weak, quick, and easy way of finding a definition. So, yes, a good bilingual dictionary is fine. But I'd always recommend learners to have a monolingual dictionary. That is one where are they explanation are in English too. This is because they normally give you so much information. You can find out, for example, what parts of speech a word is, a noun, a verb, et cetera. You can also find out where that stress is in the word. And if there is anything you have to do to use it in a sentence, for example, you might learn the word depend, but you need to know that in a sentence. You would usually need to say, depend on, for example, learning English depends on a lot of factors. And yes, you'll find out if a word has more than one meaning. But each one is usually given in an example sentence, and so you know which meaning you are looking for. So how can you make the most of your dictionary to hill, improve your English? Here are some great ideas by the dictionary, which is best for you. There are many, many dictionaries available and you need to make sure that the one you buy these, the one you need for your situation. If you are buying a monolingual English-English dictionary, check that you can understand the definitions. Remember that it is possible to buy different levels of dictionaries. And if you buy one which is too complex, you are unlikely to use it. Also think about where you are going to use the dictionary. For example, if you study on the way to work or school. And large heavy dictionary is not practical because it will be too heavy to carry. Double tick definitions. If you use a bilingual dictionary, tried to remember to check meanings to Weiss, look up the English word and find the word in translation in your own language. Then look calm the translation which the dictionary has given you because it's the same as the English word you'll looked up originally. This is especially important if your dictionary gives you more than one possible translation of an English word. User dictionary to correct your grammar. Remember that most monolingual dictionaries give you information about the grammar of words. For example, they will tell you what the past tense of a verb 0s are, which preposition is needed if you want to use the word in a sentence. Using our dictionary as a source of information about grammar and pronunciation, as well as to help you with the meanings of words. 7. 3 check your understanding of using the dictionary : Okay, now it's time to understand some details. I'm going to check you and ask you some questions. Try to answer these questions. Question number one. Beth mentions one advantage and one disadvantage of bilingual dictionaries. What are they? Can you tell me about them? Think and try to answer this question? Well, the correct answer is, what is the advantage? They can be quick and easy to use. And it is advantages if a word has more than one meaning, actually, it's difficult to work out which meaning is the one that you need. And that's not good. Question number two, beth talks about four different types of information which you can find in monolingual dictionaries. So what are they? The correct answer? Actually, you can find what part of speech of the awardees. For example, noun, verb, it says wrong. And how to say the word warts Chris. Next one is how to put the words into a sentence context, which is very important and essential. And the last one is explanation is of different meanings of this same word. For parts. Very important parse that Beth talked about and we should understand them. 8. 4 accent and pronunciation: Improving your pronunciation when you speak English, which is more important, correct grammar or good pronunciation. Many teachers will tell you that pronunciation is more important. This is because when someone listens to you, they can understand what do you want to say, even if you make mistakes. However, it is more difficult if the listener can't understand your pronunciation. So how can you improve your pronunciation if you study alone, which aspects do you think are important? What sounds do you find difficult to say? I would suggest that there are four important things to focus on if you want to improve your pronunciation. First of all, it is important to be able to make the consonant sounds. The vowels are not as important, but don't worry about that T-H sounds as in Think and this people will understand you even if you can say these sounds. Secondly, you need to pay attention to group soft consonants, consonant clusters at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of the words next. Although the quality of vowel sounds isn't so important, to try and get the difference between long and short. Sounds like the difference between live and leave it. Finally focus on getting this tourist right. Remember that the main stress or loud sound falls on the most important word or words for your message. So if you would like to improve your pronunciation, try to focus on the four areas which Dr. Jenkins suggests. Consonant sounds. Which English consonants sounds are difficult for you to say? Try to be aware of which sounds can cause problems for you. Why are they difficult? It may be that you are not accustomed to making the shape of the sound with your mouth. Tried to work out how the sound is made by repeating it to yourself. Consonant clusters. Are there groups of consonant sounds in English words which you never find in your own language, triton into phi, which consonant clusters are difficult for you? And then try to say this combination of sounds to yourself. Long or short vowels. The length of a vowel can make a big difference to the meaning of what you say. For example, long vowel leave. When do you leave? Short vowel, leg? Where the live? Find this trusts if you put the stress on the correct place in a sentence, you can overcome many of the problems with the individual sounds. This is because the listener will hear the words which carry the message of what you want to say and won't notice some of the other problems. To find this tress, think of yourself which words are most important for the message to be understood. 9. 4 check your understanding of accent and pronunciation : Now let's take your understanding. So I want you to answer these questions if you have understood all of their lesson and all of the details in this lesson that I explained for you. Question number one. According to Dr. Jenkins, watts are the four most important things to try to get ride to help improve your pronunciation. Tried to say this in your own words. And the correct answer is, must focus on consonant sounds, but don't worry about th or the next. Try to make all the sounds in a consonant cluster. C. Think about the dear friends between longer and shorter bowel sounds. And the last one is focus on putting stress on the words which carry the meaning in your sentence. Question number two, a E I, O U, R All. What are they? Actually a, E, I, O, U, R vowels. What about B, C, D, F? What are they? Well, as we know, b, c, d, e, f are all examples of consonants. Long vowels, something like food, cart, seat. As short vowels are something like boat, cat, set. Perfect. 10. 5 books we choose : Making the most of the books you have. If you are studying English on your own, you may not have access to many English language textbooks. However, with a little imagination, it is possible to use the textbook in ways which will give you lots of language practice. What different topics does it cover? Make a list of the different subjects which the book helps you to discuss, and a monolingual world-class. All the students share the same language and obviously all the students are familiar with their own society. This can sometimes have an advantage. For example, it makes it easier for the teacher to provide explanations of difficult vocabulary. But it can sometimes seem that the students have no need to speak in English since everyone speaks the same language and shares the same culture. So one activity which can encourage students have a greater awareness of their own society in relation to others east to consider what international visitors would need to know. But the students must go into details explaining exactly what the visitor needs to do. For example, if the topic of the textbook unities travel, they might consider what a visitor would need to take to be able to travel around the country or region. This sort of thing can start with a conversation or a role play and go on to be project involving writing. So one idea for making the most of your textbook is to imagine you have to tell someone from another country about your country using the topic and the vocabulary in the book. Here are some more ideas. Use the pictures before you read the texts. Many textbooks have pictures to illustrate the ideas and vocabulary in each unit. Before you look at the explanations and exercises, try to describe the pictures. If you do not know the exact words for the thing and the pictures, can you describe them in another way? Teach yourself, then test yourself. If your textbook contains exercises, don't write your answers in the book. Instead, write your answers on a piece of paper. After a few weeks, go back and try the exercises again. How much can you remember? 11. 7 friends : Creating networks of English learners. Learning English on your own can be a difficult task. Studying grammar and vocabulary and listening to the BBC can help you understand what you hear and read. But for most learners, the most important goals are to speak and write English well. And in order to do this, you need to communicate with other people. So how can you do this if you are studying alone? One of the most important things in language learning is getting over the fear of communication with others in the foreign language. It's not unusual to find learners who have been studying English for many years, but who find it almost impossible to have a conversation. This is usually because when they learn English in school, the focus was on learning grammar and vocabulary. Making mistakes was seen as bad. And it is often this fear of making mistakes, which means that they are too frightened to use the language which they know. We encourage learners to overcome their fear by forming networks of learning circles. These learning circles can have as few as two members to a friend's or members of the same family. Or they can be large clubs. Then most important feature about them is that they encourage people to communicate in English, to talk about things which arrest them without being embarrassed about making mistakes. But learning circles and needn't only focus on speaking. You could have a learning circle of Penn friends who all write letters to each other. The most important thing is that it is what they say or write to each other, which is important, not simply that grammar or vocabulary they use. What are the best ways of creating opportunities for communication English stopped an English learning circle. Ask our family and friends if they would like to spend some time speaking in English. Our range of regular time each week, which you set aside for talking in English. This could be after your favorite BBC World Service program. Talk about watts, you understood what you thought of the program and find out what the others thoughts made contact with learners in other places. Do you work for a company which has offices in other towns? Does your school have contacts with other schools in your region? Why not find out if people who are working or studying in these places would like to communicate with you in English. This could be by letter, on the phone or in person. Starts and international network. If you have a friend or family member who lives in other country, he or she might know people who would like to write to or to your learning circle. Remember when he are communicating with someone who doesn't speak your language, you really need to speak English. And that is the advantage. This is really good. 12. 8 use the internet : Using the internet to improve your English, we know are from the letters and emails that many listeners have access to the internet. They'd earn it perhaps more than any other learning tool has had a huge impact on learning languages. It is now possible to access authentic English language material in many parts of the world. So how can you make the most of the web to help your English studies? Here both narrower gives her a device for learners who want to use the internet to improve their English. Do you have access to the Internet? If you do, which sites do you find most helpful for your English study? If you don't? Can you imagine how you could use the internet to help you learn English? Obviously, the internet has created a revolution in language learning. Now more people than ever before have access to English language material 24 hours a day. However, the World Wide Web does have its disadvantages for learners. I think the very fact that there is so much can make finding useful and irrelevant information very difficult. There is a lot of useful stuff on the web, but also a lot of trash. So you really need to find a way of weeding out what is relevant to you. Also, many of the English language learning sites I will look at are very repetitive. They provide some worksheets to complete, but they don't necessarily help learners understand English better or think about how to use the grammar they are practicing in a meaningful way. However, as a teacher, I think that greatest advantage which the Internet can give to learners is to communicate with others in chat rooms, for example, and to work with a real authentic texts such as online newspapers. It is possible for all line work to be interesting, creative, and really meaningful. So what are the best ways of using the internet to help your English? Here are our top tips. Use your search engine. If you want to find other sites, think about the words you need to use in your search engine. For international search engines, try typing in their letters E FL, Which means English as a foreign language. Or E S OIL, which means English for speakers of other languages, followed by what you are interested in. For example, EFL grammar. This will help you find sites which are specially dedicated to English learners. Access authentic material. Most newspapers, magazines and TV and radio stations now have their own websites. So if English-language newspapers are expensive and you're contrary, why not access them via the internet? Remember to limit your reading. Choose one or two articles or pages which you'll find interesting. Print them out and study them in more detail when you are not online. 13. 8 check your understanding of using the internet : Great. Now let's check your understanding angle at C. If you have understood the materials, the details we gave you in this lesson. There are two questions. Let's start with question number one. Beth mentions two problems which can occur when you use the internet to help you learn English. Can you tell me what are the, what are these two problems? Well, the problems are, it can be difficult to find what you are looking for. This is the problem. Sometimes you cannot find the information you are looking for. And the second problem that she mentioned is some sites, some websites are not very useful and they are not very authentic and they don't give you the exact and the quantity information and this is not good. Okay, now let's move to the next question. Question number two. Find two things which you can do to help with your English studies. So what are those two things? Can you remember? So the correct answer is that you can use chat rooms to communicate with other learners. You can access English language newspapers. Yes, these are the two things that Beth mentioned. If you think that you have problems understanding the details and this listen, I suggest to you to come back and review. 14. 9 access English : Accessing English around you. When you are studying alone, what is the best way to find sources of English to help you learn the language. Of course, you can listen to different English sources and you may have takes books to help you, but where else can you find English if you don't live in a country where English is a first or main language. As a matter of fact, this course looks at English from an international perspective. Are there any English-language newspapers or magazines published in your country? Can you name them? Where can you buy them? When you are living in a country where English isn't used as the first language, it can sometimes be difficult to find interesting English texts. But in many places, local English-language newspapers are just as good and possibly even more resourceful than authentic British newspapers. Obviously, they are much cheaper because they are locally produced. But they are also more relevant to the learners because they understand the contexts of the stories and articles. Much of what we read in British newspapers is difficult for learners to understand. Not because the vocabulary is difficult, but because they don't have all the background information which they need to understand it fully. Apart from local newspapers and magazines, you may be able to find lots of other sources of English around you. Think about English language films. You may be able to see English language films on TV or at the cinema. If you watch English films with subtitles, tried to close your eyes from time to time to avoid reading the texts. Can you understand what you here? Remember this die above listening activity can be difficult at first. Don't worry, just keep trying. Local libraries. Is there a library near you which has books in English? For example? Many British and American offices around the world have lending libraries where you can borrow English language bulks. So if there isn't a library near, you tried to organize your own with a group of friends. If each person in a group of four has a different book or magazine, it means that everyone can read four different texts. Notices, signs, and labels. Are their English language signs in your town. Do you buy food or things for your house which have labels and English? Try to be aware of how much written English there is around you. Can you pronounce the words on the label? Do you understand the instructions? If there are written in English, talks and lectures in your town, you may have clubs, societies which gave talks in English. Try to find out if there is a cultural society you can join. There may also be a foreign company which gives marketing seminars or who publish brochures and booklets. For example, if you are interested in becoming a teacher, tried to find out if there are any foreign educational groups working in your area. They may have talks you can attend, or books you could read. 15. 9 check your understanding of accessing English: And this parts you have the chance to check your understanding of the Listen. If you think you didn't understand some details about this, listen, I highly suggest you to come back and watch this video and listen again. There are some questions here. I'm going to ask you these questions. If your answer is wrong, it means that he didn't understand the lists and completely. Are you ready? Let's start and let's check your understanding. Question number one. What are two advantages into reading locally produced newspapers? Kenny, remember? They answer raise. They are cheaper than important newspapers and the stories are more relevant because they are about local issues.
