Students of the English Language count on an advantage that students of other languages don’t have: its prevalence. The English language rules business, technology and science, entertainment and even tourism. If a person from Germany wants to communicate with a Spanish speaker, their only language in common is very likely to be English. The fact that English rules many different areas has led to the emergence of a variety of teaching methods. In fact, you can teach yourself English if you make wise use of the tools. Many people are using the tools that the Internet and media provide us to this purpose.
When seeking to learn English, London visitors count on an extra advantage which is, being in an English speaking country. If you travel to a different country and receive information in a different language constantly, as by watching TV, reading the news, ordering a coffee, following directions, etc. it will not take you long to learn to speak the language well.
However, not everyone has the possibility of travelling to learn the language just by being surrounded by it, which is the reason why they resort to tools like the Internet and the Media. Language Trainers offers group and individual lessons where you can choose to study either General or Business English. Yet, you can try the before mentioned activities at home too. For instance, if you watch a movie in English (most movies played in the movie theaters around the world were produced in Hollywood, CA, United States) you will read subtitles while listening to the English audio. Even if you are not aware of this activity, your brain will start associating sounds to words. If you consider you are ready to do without subtitles, why not rent a DVD and just watch the film in English?
You can also use the Internet to learn English. Some students enjoy reading the New York Times online, while others prefer befriending native English speaking on Facebook or following them via Twitter.
If you manage to incorporate the English language to your daily life, you will be speaking, reading and understanding it sooner than you thought.
