[How to learn a language?]

There's no single universal fool-proof method to learn a language. Try different ones and use the one that works for you, or a combination.

Little and often is best. Ten minutes every day tends to be more effective and manageable than a longer session once a week.

Mistakes are part of the learning process. Have a go and you'll learn much more quickly: most native speakers will already appreciate you making an effort.

Listen to language learning CDs or podcasts during idle times, such as when travelling to work.

Watch TV and video online in the language you're learning. You may not understand much of it but it will help you get used to how the language sounds and, with the help of the visuals, you'll pick up odd words and phrases.

Write words on post-it notes and stick them around the house.

Say phone numbers out loud, make shopping and other lists or memorise orders in a bar or restaurant.

Repeat activities to consolidate what you've learnt.

Visit to a place where you can use the language you're learning - if anything, it will keep you motivated.

Find a learning partner.

Go back every now and again to something you did early on. You may be surprised at how much you've learnt.

And last but not least …

Attend the English class systematically, do your homework and assignments regularly and, please, no phubbing!
