Five reasons why it’s better to learn English with Friends
Learning English can be a great way to meet new people but learning with friends can also increase your chances of success. Here are five ways in which learning English as part of a group will help you reach your goals.
When you learn something alone, it’s easy to take a break. After you take that break, though, it’s tempting just to quit. When you learn as part of a group, the energy of the other members will help you keep going when you feel like you are losing momentum.
Stating your goals in front of a group of people is a great way to help you commit to achieving them. It’s a lot more difficult to quit studying when you feel like that would be letting a group of people down than if you can quit quietly with nobody knowing about it.
Learning as part of a group is fun! You get to share ideas with other people, find out new ways of looking at things, and undoubtedly share a few jokes along the way.
An extra pair of ears
Practising alone is great, but when it comes to conversation you really need two or more people. It’s also useful when you are practising pronunciation to have someone who can check how you sound.
Even though you don’t need expensive textbooks to learn English, it can sometimes be difficult to find the best resources to learn from. Being part of a group means you can share these resources and spend more time on actually practising English.
So, those are my five reasons why it’s better to learn English with friends. Do you have a friend learning English are the moment? If so, share this article with them to let them know how important they are.
