Learning English on the Internet

Learn English following useful skills and using the best resources to help you practice those skills. The resources will also increase your English input. Don’t forget that inputting authentic English you will also improve your output – think about how you learnt your first language.

My suggestions for students learning English

The equation for your learning is time x effectiveness, so the first thing you are going to want to do is devote a lot of time to your study.


Research shows that regular study is more effective than infrequent large chunks of study and this is a big reason why online study is a good choice. So try to find frequent opportunities for study, even if the time is short. In my personal efforts to learn Chinese I have found novel ways to learn amidst my hectic teaching schedule. Some of the things I did include reading on buses, listening to mp3s while doing housework, watching Chinese movies and doing language exchanges.


The effectiveness of your learning can be influenced by many factors and research shows that we have individual differences in our learning styles. What it all boils down to is that you need to find what works best for you personally. Some suggestions I would make would be to try to make your learning enjoyable, use different media (reading, listening, visual media), use a variety of activities, and be focused on your study – don’t try to study whilst watching TV.!

About Mike Wattie

I have been teaching English as a second language for more than 20 years in Taipei and Australia, in language centers and universities. My area of ​​expertise is teaching students the English language. I particularly enjoy teaching English as I find it difficult to teach students the skills and strategies needed to learn it, and I also find my students highly motivated – that is a teacher’s joy!
