⭕ Some people say you are fluent when you dream in English, but I dream in French nowadays and I know I’m not truly fluent. I think you have achieved true fluency when you can converse with native speakers and they either think you are one of them, or they find it really easy to have a conversation with you on just about any topic.
⭕ If you can speak in English and rarely have to translate words or phrases to your native language to understand and speak than you might be fluent!
⭕ It takes many years and lots of practice to become fluent in a second language. But when you’re finally fluent, you can understand it, speak it, and write easily in it. One English class won’t make you fluent — gaining fluency takes years.
⭕ According to the dictionary, ‘fluent’ means to be able to express oneself easily and articulately. Your English fluency is personal; which means it is really based on how you feel; unless of course, you want to base your ‘fluency’ on an exam. Only you can decide when you are fluent in English.
⭕ You cannot expect to just turn up to class for a few weeks and be able to speak the language. You must engage in lots of work outside of class and use your brain as much as possible. If you just want to have fun learning new words, there are many options available. Vocabulary applications, Facebook groups, chatting etc.
⭕ If you want to be fluent in English, you need to make it a part of your daily communication and activity. The absolute best way to learn English is to surround yourself with it. Take notes in English, put English books around your room, listen to English language radio broadcasts, watch English news, movies and television. Speak English to yourself and with your friends whenever you can. The more English material that you have around you, the faster you will practice and learn English.
⭕ The key is to practice your English every day, listening, speaking or reading. Be patient! Don’t give up, learning a language can be a long process, but don’t panic, learning English should be fun, so have fun!
⭕ Have you tried to learn Greek? When an English speaker doesn’t understand a language or something that is written or said, he would say “It’s all Greek to me.” So for English speakers Greek is really a hard language to learn!
⭕ Well, what do the Greeks say? Obviously, when a Greek doesn’t understand something, he doesn’t say “It’s all Greek to me.” Rather, he says, “It’s all Chinese to me.” For Greeks, Chinese is really a hard language to learn!
⭕ That brings up an interesting question: what language is regarded as the most incomprehensible, hard to understand, so hard to learn, and therefore most worthy of the phrase “It’s all ______ to me” in various countries?
⭕ English is not the most difficult language, what is considered difficult is very subjective. Especially when speaking about languages and learning them. I think that English is indeed a difficult language to learn. I just don’t believe it is the most difficult.
⭕ I studied Arabic, French, Spanish and my native language is Amazigh language. English is by far the easiest! Is English an easy language or is it difficult? Obviously, to prove the case either way, it is necessary to compare English with other languages.
⭕ Good luck in learning one of the most difficult languages in the world today…Remember practice is the key, and passion makes a language easier.
