The limits of my language are the limits of my world.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.展开剩余93%
One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.
The limits of my language are the limits of my world.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own.
Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can; there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.
Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.
You can never understand one language until you understand at least two.
To have another language is to possess a second soul.
Rita Mae Brown
Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow.
1.Define one single purpose.制定单一目标。
2.Don't neglect your native language (you must know it perfectly well!) - it's the foundation for any language you are going to study!不要忽视你的母语（母语也必须学好！）——这是学好任何一门外语的基础。
3.Always learn collocations rather than separate words!不要光学单词，更要学它的搭配。
4.Don't ever try to explain the inexplicable - memorize it!不要去试着解释无法解释的东西——背下来！
5.Ask more of yourself rather than your teacher - you are the best teacher for yourself!多问问自己，不要一有问题就问老师——自己是最好的老师！
1.Watch a film in your native language, try to remember every dialogue. If it's necessary watch it for the second time and then download an English version. The main thing is to be attentive! This is the best way to learn everyday phrases.
2.Find lyrics of your favorite songs on the Internet, translate them using dictionary and then sing the song aloud even if you don’t have an ear for music. Work on your pronunciation.
3.Turn on the TV, find an English channel, take a pen and a paper and write down the information displayed on the screen. It will be difficult for the first time but finally you'll do it!
1.Try to use English every day. Quantity is not as important as periodicity.
2.Read books. There you can find common phrases which can be used in your daily life. Say them loud to remember.
3.Listen to English broadcast. For instance BBC has lots of material. I love various how-tos and lingos. As in , you are in contact with applied contemporary English.
4.When looking for a word you do not know, always use more than one dictionary. My favorites are by Cambridge, Oxford, thefreedictionary.com and Longman. Sometimes you can find something which is contained in only one of the dictionaries.
5.Do not hesitate to visit an English speaking country, if you can. A week gives you more than six months at home.
@Ibrahim Jubran, Israel
1.First to try to be in an English speaking country for six month at least and study there during this period.
2.To use all the words and sentences you have encountered, take notes.
3.Watch English TV (movie, news…) It is recommended to watch something with translation.
4.When you speak the language try to use new word that you've learned.
5.Go over your notebook and see that you didn't forget what you studied.
1.Have 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.
2.Learn the grammar. One can do nothing serious without grammar, in general without knowing the rules.
3.Use English dictionary& thesaurus and learn the word, its derivatives, synonyms, antonyms.
4.Keep in mind that English means reading, writing, speaking and listening, at once. In this way, one can form complex connections between neurons and can improve the learning process. It was a time when I was silent in English, like a swan. Even now I am paying for this mistake.
5.Have patience, especially the patience necessary to repeat all the time. Forgetfulness is a cruel truth.
1.You should take some article in English and read it 20 times and repeat the process for two days... and then you have to tell over yourself. The article must be interesting for you!
2.If you are learning English grammar you should take several different sentences and sort them.
3.It's necessary to read several English stories. Fairytales, papers, books, and then write summary.
4.Have desire to study English.
5.Study English daily.
1.The best way to learn English or any other foreign language is to do like the famous American writer, the author of 'Hiawatha' Henry Longfellow did: to travel. In this way he learned four languages staying almost a year in each country (France, Germany, Spain and Italy).
2.Build your English vocabulary by doing something 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.
3.Learn to use specific words instead of general e.g., to walk (general)- to stroll, to trudge (specific).
学会用具体的而非宽泛的词。比如walk是宽泛的词，而to stroll（闲逛）， to trudge（跋涉）则更具体。
4.Find someone among your friends who knows English better than you and try to speak only English to him/her as often as possible; find someone among your friends or younger siblings and cousins who knows English worse than you and try to teach them.
5.Read English in the original without a dictionary first to understand the general idea and then you will come to like it as with every book you will get more and more of the context. Personally I started with a book for children.
1.Be a fan of an American or British artist, singer or celebrity. This way you can read or watch their interviews and try to understand it so you always search words in vocabulary.
2.Write reviews of movies you've seen, restaurants you've eaten at, etc. Describe them and say what you liked - and didn't like about them.
3.Learn English in the group where everybody has the same level of English as you. I feel awkward when I know much less than other pupils. Then I am afraid to speak out.
4.While you drive in a car or sit in a bus talk to yourself and describe the things you see in English. Hear English audio books while you drive your car or sit in bus or train.
5.Change your mobile phone and PC 's language in English.
