Have you ever wondered why some people are more successful in learning English than the others? It turns out that there is such a notion as “take off speed”, that is the speed which allows the plane to leave the ground and fly. It approximately makes up 160 mph. If your take off speed is less than that it can take you years to learn the language and yet, you won’t be able to speak fluently. Remember: If there is a target, there are no obstacles! The easiest secret is to do it regularly, set a goal to learn about 10-15 new words daily, make up numerous sentences with them and use them in real life situations. It is difficult to remember the word without a context but having reinforced it in different sentences you will necessarily keep it in mind for a long time! Let’s say you’d like to go to the seaside for holidays and you want a room with a beautiful view. It means you will need the word view. I recommend to learn this word together with the preposition. Please note that a view of – means what exactly you will see when you look out of the window of your hotel room whereas the phrase a view from – means from what place you are actually admiring this very view? For example, from the balcony or a window etc. Then you make up as many sentences as possible:
Can I have a room with a view of the sea, please?
I don’t like the view from my window.
Can you give us another room with a better view, please?
For these sentences you must know the main grammar constructions like the modal verb can and the Present Simple Tense, the vocabulary itself is not sufficient. That’s why study grammar, listen to songs, watch movies and learn new words every single day and you will definitely take off!
