To read a lot, not only books but newspapers and magazines as well! There is so much good and new vocabulary in a book that we have no idea!

Build your English vocabulary doing smth new e.g., do a new sport, start a new hobby, play a musical instrument, try gardening, learn to paint. In this way you will like to know a lot of new words.

英語上達法 30 選 : Top 10 - 1

10. 自分には才能がないなどと思わない

You shouldn't think you probably "don't have a talent for language". This is a nonsense. The fact that you speak your mother tongue freely is a proof that you can acquire any other language. You need a sincere interest in what you are doing or better you need a thirst for knowledge. You will only learn if your subconscious mind is ready to learn. Necessarily, you must be confident, strong, active and stick to practicing English because it takes you much time to gain success.Dang Thanh Tam

Read, read lots. It's fun to do and you also pick cultural facts, history, slang. All depending on what you are reading though.Alma Rates

7. とにかく英語圏で英語の経験値を積む

Firstly, you must learn english in a native speaking english country. For example, learning English in England. I think england is the best fit. England is the main source of english, begining. England is a cosmopolitan city, has a lot of different culture. Before learning in a foreign country, in your country, you must make a accumulation of english.Ibrahim Yücedag

6. 英会話だけじゃなく書くことも学ぶ

Finally, I think that very important way is not to learn speak only but how to write too or vise versa.Elena Filippova

5. 英語が必要な会社で働く

to get a job in the company where the knowledge of English is necessary. It is a motivational method.Fokin Vadim

4. 何よりもまず理由を見つける

First of all I think - you need to find the reason. Why do you want to study foreign language?Smirnova Alexandra, St. Petersburg, Russia

3. 知っている英語で話して間違いに気付く

Use what you know. Even if you're not confident about your english knowledge or pronunciation or whatever it is. If you keep listening to yourself you'll notice your errors and can practice a better way to communicate.Alma Rates

2. 英語で新しいことを学ぶ姿勢を持つ

You should be open to learn new things.Nilgün Arikan, Turkey

1. 英語を学ぶための強い動機を持つ

Having a strong motivation. I am very interested in literature, particularly in Japanese classical poetry. All my books are written in English or are translated in English. I write poetry in English. I have wonderful friends and pen pals, and English is the only way to communicate our thoughts. Being an eye doctor, it is important to me to read books and articles in English and, also, to be able to speak English with my patients, when the occasion turns up. Last but not least, English is the language of globalisation and we must accustom to this idea.Dana-Maria Onica, Petrosani, Romania

最後に : 日本人との違い

Japanese people tend to look for these kind of tips in Japanese. They also have a collection of English grammar/exercise books written in Japanese, and watch language teaching TV programs/online videos which have full explanation in Japanese (instead of watching BBC).

Undoubtedly, Japanese people's English learning process are slowed down along these ways. To accelerate your learning process, I really really recommend you to follow the 30 tips I introduced you above because they're all from successful ESL learners!

Well, that's all for today's topic. Thank you for reading till the end. See you next time!
