“How to learn English faster?” is a common question. One of the best ways to quickly improve is to surround yourself with the English language. Alexander from Germany has been at the Embassy English School Cambridge for only 7 weeks and has quickly improved his spoken and written English. Here’s what he said about his experience.
Intermediate and now I’m in the Upper Intermediate class and am really happy about this and about the progress I have made.
I can now have a conversation with British people, I understand them and they can understand me. Before, I had to think more about what I wanted to say, but now I can have a conversation without having to think too much.
The really interesting lessons, as they are not like my lessons at school. They are very creative, we do different things (writing, speaking, and listening). Also the social activities outside lessons help you a lot to improve.
At first you don’t realise the progress you’ve made but when you look back you’ll notice. I now have no problem speaking with people from different countries
I think you can speak with other students so you learn to understand different dialects of people at different levels. It’s also fine to speak with all the teachers and everyone is happy to help you.
Yes, it’s not too big; you know each other, so you are not scared to talk to other people. The school is very modern and you have the possibility to study for yourself, in the library or borrow books. There are lots of different materials to help you learn and you can ask the teacher for your own exercises.
I had different reasons. Firstly, for business – I have to speak to banks and customers in English and want to speak more fluently. Secondly, for personal reasons, for travelling and to be able to speak to other people without problems.
Next October I will start studying and also work at the same time. I’ll work half a week and then the other half study economics with tax.
The phrase I like the most is “AMAZING” – if British people say it, they stress it very much. You will hear the happiness in their voice.
