You can found many English classes . That are the most popular way in which people study English. that classes are amazingly popular . Unfortunately most people do not even think about how to learn English.
The process is automatic. Who is like to learn English. They will sign up for an English courses. They will pay some money as class fees. They sit in class for a few hours a week, and try to get a good knowledge. .
Very surprising, We spent a Huge part of our lives in this classes and we know what they are doing.
if we met a person who has learned to speak English very well by going to English classes. we would be surprised.
If you attend this classes, you spend many hours a week in this class. Often, you also spend lots of your money. Did you get some knowledge from this classes.
01. You can listen to some bad English.
The pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary of other students (and sometimes the teacher, too) will be bad. If you listening to these people will not make your English better.
02. They teach five sentences in English.
There are in 10-20 students in the class, You have little time for you to speak . Normal English classes are very poor speaking practice. Conversation classes are better.
03. They said to Read a boring textbook.
Most this class teachers use textbooks. Why? it makes their work easier and They don’t want to prepare for every class. They just do the next unit in the book. This Textbooks make teaching easy. . They make learning boring and ineffective. You have to read stupid stories. After they ask question. you must have to answer that questions with other students. This is madness! All this nonsense makes you think that learning English is boring
04. Listen to a few grammar rules,
“the present continuous tense is used for talking about developing and changing situations”. Memorizing dozens of grammar rules is the stupidest thing you can do.
We can show this two main reasons:
1) It is impossible to memorize ,
2) If you Talking , you don’t have time to think: “What tense should I use? Let’s see…
We want to present the idea of action continuing up to the present time. I should use the present perfect tense.” You want to use your English naturally. Grammar rules may improve your scores in tests, and They do not improve your Knowledge..
05. Get a homework assignment.
The homework is usually a grammar exercise or a composition. The subject of the composition will usually be something that you don’t care about.
Doing boring things is not going to help your English. It will only decrease your motivation.
Most of this classes will not teach you good pronunciation . Most teachers are completely ignore their responsblity, sometimes their own pronunciation is bad. Some teachers will correct your mistakes when you speak. Very few teachers will tell you how you can avoid this mistake. Very few teachers will tell you about the sounds of English and how to use a dictionary to learn about the pronunciation of words.
some teachers will not encourage you to read in English, They not said to buy a good English-English dictionary. They not listen to language recordings .They will just do their textbook and the exercises in it. If your teacher is different, you are lucky.
This is what most classes look like. Think about your classes. If they are like that — boring and ineffective — then you are simply wasting your time.
