English Learning Tips

Knowing how to speak English opens doors and changes your life. How can you learn and become confident in spoken English? Start by following these six simple rules.

1) Keep it simple

In most everyday situations, for example at a café, we use simple, short sentences when we speak.

In our Speak+ classes you immediately start speaking English by using short phrases in typical daily settings and then get some feedback from our native English teachers.

2) Forget your first language

Translating is hard and stops you thinking directly in English.

When you use Speak+ from Wall Street English you can learn the meaning of words through context and by actually speaking English.

3) Practice Speaking

The only way to learn how to speak is to speak, which is why our classes focus on speaking. And after acquiring new language, you will gain further confidence by reproducing it with others in speaking sessions with an expert English teacher.

We do also have English courses that are more structured to help you learn. Our method even includes social clubs which are fun and social classes, in or outside the center to have a place where you can make friends and build your confidence in speaking English.

4) Listen

The second-best way to practice speaking is to listen to other people speaking English.

In Speak+ you can listen to other English learners from around the world to practice understanding different accents. Our native-level English teachers will make sure that you all get the feedback you need.

In our full English course we have a fun TV series storyline, present in each lesson, lets you listen to native and non-native speakers, and by listening and copying you learn to pronounce words correctly.

5) Have a clear objective

Everyone has individual needs and preferences for studying, which is why you need a flexible solution that can adapt to you.

At Wall Street English we help each student find their own rhythm, giving continual feedback and support along the way in order to reach their personal goal.

6) Take a risk!

To learn anything new you need to make mistakes.

By practicing speaking English in a friendly, relaxing environment, oue students don’t worry if they say something wrong because it is an important part of the learning process.
