One of the most effective techniques for learning a new language is to use a combination of visual and audio resources. When you are listening to someone who is fluent in English speak, it can be difficult to understand every word that is being said, especially if the person is speaking quickly. If you are reading the text at the same time as you are listening to the words that are being spoken, then this can help you to visualise the words that you are hearing and gain a better understanding of exactly what is being said.
A good example of how this technique works is when you are singing along to a song in your own language. You may have been singing what you think are the right words for many years, only to see them written down and realising that you have been singing them wrong all this time. Seeing the words in front of you can really help to bring understanding to what is being said.
When you first began to learn English, you were probably told to listen to as much of it being spoken as you can, and this still is an effective strategy. However, when you are able to read the words at the same time as hearing them spoken, you can start to distinguish between each individual word, and this will mean that the sentences and phrases that are being spoken will start to make a lot more sense.
There are many resources that are available to you online to help you learn English, and if you are taking classes then you have probably been provided with other learning materials. The problem with many resources is that they are either audio or visual, and it can be difficult to find anything that combines these two learning techniques. However, it is worth making the extra effort to try and locate this type of material, as it can really have a positive impact on your success in learning the English language.
