Learning English by self-study or by video course assumes gradual improvement of language skills and learning of topics. You should not learn all the tenses at once or study the vocabulary intensively, memorizing new words, but not remembering the grammar. Learn English gradually, learning the simplest grammatical categories, common vocabulary words, and basic pronunciation rules. Once you have mastered the basics – you can go back in a spiral: learn more complex tenses, knowledge of which will be based on the previously passed material, forms of words, exceptions to the pronunciation rules, etc.
The principle of immersion
Perhaps one of the most difficult principles to implement in the process of independent language learning. Because immersion involves the creation of a certain language environment. Or searching for it. But whatever it is, without this principle you will greatly reduce your chance of mastering English even at an intermediate level on your own. A language environment can be created by watching movies or TV shows in English, listening to audio materials. Learning English with movies is not the worst way to learn English, as proper live spoken modern English sounds from the screens.
For language practice and development of the ability to perceive English speech by ear – it is perfect. But you should learn English with the help of songs carefully, because not always the authors and performers adhere to all grammatical norms of English. In addition, you can also learn English with the help of short videos from the BBC.
You can find a language environment: Talking clubs exist at every self-respecting language school. Talk to native speakers can be even without being a student of the school – in this case, going to the conversation club will cost a little more. It is also possible to find native speakers online or on the streets.
The only way to overcome the language barrier – live communication. There is no possibility to immerse yourself in a language environment in an English-speaking country, look for islands of English-speaking environment in your hometown.
