Would you like to learn how to speak English?

Learning English will give you more opportunities in your career and allow you to travel the world.

English is a language called Anglo-Frisian. It belongs to the Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family. There are various accents and dialects of English all over the world.

English is also an accented language, which can be difficult for non-native speakers to pronounce. English grammar is very similar to that of other Indo-European languages.

English vocabulary is vast and rich: an English speaker can often choose between Germanic or Latin words: come or arrive; sight or vision; freedom or liberty, for example! The English language uses the Latin alphabet in its writing. 

But how do you become fluent in English? How can you learn English quickly? Well, it takes a lot of dedication, and here are some tips to help you become fluent in the language:

  1. Practice English every day: do you like podcasts? watching series? reading articles? No matter what, just set aside a few minutes a day to do these activities in English.
  2. Bring English closer to your reality: learn English words that will help you in your daily life and American or British vocabulary that is useful for your objective. If you want to travel, try to learn phrases that will help you on your journey. Or is it for work? What phrases do you use to write an email or answer a phone call? Connect the learning to your current goal.
  3. Keep notes: it doesn't make any difference whether it's in your cell phone, notebook, or computer, but get into a habit of writing down new English words or sentences. This will help your memorization.
  4. Use the resources at your disposal: whether it's online classes, idiom apps, or study groups. There are many ways to practice English. See which one interests you the most and get started.
  5. Take formal English classes: although there are many ways to experience the language in everyday life, it's very important to have time to learn in a structured way.
  6. Be consistent: one of the most important things for English language fluency is that you choose how you want to immerse yourself in the language and do it consistently.

These tips will help you learn the new language more quickly. And can you imagine putting all this together and accelerating your knowledge of the language by living abroad, studying and still enjoying the local culture? We'll help you with that.
