THE LEGEND Dia atrás
I have been learning English for several years. I am also studying at university. All lectures are taught in English. Although I am learning English for a long time, my writing sometimes tends to be stiff. Besides, my listening skills are not that good. I am always thinking about how to improve my English more and more. I have now started to write significantly cut down so that there is no confusion or redundancy in my writing. Anyway, a friend from my university told me he learned English to a level of B2 within two years. He knew the fundamentals/foundations in school. He reached A2 with a tendency to B1. After that, he was willing to go to an international university. Thus, he had to sharpen his English skills. He watched every evening, around 1-2 hours BRpost. He barely noted any new words which he heard while listening to the video. I was very confused when I listened to this. His English is good. Considering his writing style/ listening comprehension/ speaking skill and even reading skill. Can someone tell me how it is possible to learn English to an absolute fluency only by watching BRpost and thus outplay someone who is learning for many years? Ps: His writing style is very good. I thought good writing is formed by exposure to books.

And I am rather smart.

Based on my experience, being a second language speaker requires the necessity to speak the language - imagine like you could lose your job unless level you up to a certain point where you can make communications with your target language native speaker. If you are cornered at the necessity to master a second language, there is no option but do that if you want to survive. For Japanese, English is like an alien language - totally different in various aspects such as spelling, grammar, pronunciation and accent, but I am now far from the trouble in communicating with the English native speakers, thanks to the fact that I needed to step up my English ability, without which I could have lost my career. Anyway, it’s a very interesting presentation where I agree to most of the parts. Thanks.

Look at the native speaker's face, but he shows us only the lower part of the face - nose and lips. I love learning languages, but I don't want anyone telling me how long it's going to take me or how easy it's going to be. It's hard, fascinating, and requires opening up and pushing yourself to your limits and beyond. And it is extremely clear to me that English is a terrible language to start out with - 3 forms of the verb and no gender. If you have a good reason to learn a language, go out and do it, and get as much help as you can. I live in a country where 5 major languages are easily accessible, and so those are the ones I've been working on non-stop for years, because if you stop, that's the end of the ballgame. Another extremely important point - I teach 2 of those languages to people who speak the other 3/4.
HaZe7 3 dias atrás
This is very insightful! I also understand what you mean about English being hard to start with. It makes Spanish really weird because I never think to check gender. I have Spanish for school and I’m doing fairly well so far, but way school crams it makes it less appealing to learn. I’m going to attempt to learn Japanese since it really interests me and I hope I have good luck with it. Any other tips you can give me that he may not have said?

I agree with this bc I took French for 3 years and I barely remember anything I learned last year. I'm a visual person and it takes me a while to understand/ respond to what u say in a different language. Like I can guess, but I won't be able to respond.😅 It's like reading cursive, but can't write it. Plus I don't think I'll use it in my everyday life so... I just wish my middle school teacger was a bit more patient with me and stop giving me tests and quizzes bc they were stressful and I kept drawing a blank. My High school teacher was more understanding and wanted to ditch the books as best as she could. 😂🐩🗼
