Learning a new language has got to be one of the most important decisions that any student or professional can make these days, especially if he or she chooses to master the English language.

The dominant language of the United States is an adventure that is totally worth it. Some reasons are its broad influence (over 500 million of speakers across the world), versatility, and the fact that mastering a new language is always a great window to explore new cultures, a fabulous personal challenge, plus it nourishes both the personal and professional experience.

It is difficult to imagine who wouldn't be interested in starting to connect with English speakers basically from all over the world. English speakers can be found in countries like Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cameroon, Canada, Dominica, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Fiji, Ghana, Grenada, Guyana, and India. Also, in Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Kiribati, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Malta, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Namibia, Nauru, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Singapore, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, Uganda, United Kingdom, Vanuatu, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Nevertheless, not everyone has a calm ride while facing a new linguistic adventure. That is why there are some tips that can shorten the time and help anyone to become as good as an English native-speaker:

1. One of the best ways to get started into the English universe is to start watching lots of TV shows, Netflix series, listening to English bands/singers, even re-watching the old Disney movies that every kid used to love but now without subtitles.

Due to the impact and high revenues of the American movie industry, is fair to say that the English language is the mother tongue of the entertainment industry so there's a lot of material to practice.

The idea is to start creating an English context and increase the exposition to the English language on a daily basis.

2. This can be seen as a continuation of the first one, but we highly recommend to focus on the pronunciation with easy exercises, for example, with English songs. Some people recommend one clever tool: sing along and practice the pronunciation of all the songs, of any genre, that are on your iTunes list.

The idea is to try to spell every word just as the singer- who probably is an English native-speaker and discover a new vocabulary. For instance, Kendrick Lamar's hip hop poetry inspired verses have helped a lot of English language students in the pronunciation-lexicon discovery process. The Cure, The Beatles, Iron Maiden, Queen, The Divine Comedy, Dream Theatre, and Metallica are great because their classic songs have smart lyrics that allow the listeners to understand the meaning without boring them.

3. Literature. There is plenty of free downloadable and interesting material to read on the net. At first, we always recommend our students to find a genre that can be easy to read, and above all, that helps focus on the punctuation and syntax.

4. Read historical facts to fall in love with the language. Many people have stated that they have been attracted to a new language because they find it interesting.

Just to name some of the English spoken countries, the US influence has been omnipresent all along the world’s political history and there are many idols, milestones, and great cultural aspects that should be investigated while studying the language to engage with the culture even more than in the mother tongue.

5. Finally, the online courses e-learning platforms are another feasible and efficient method that can help students to perfect their English.
