When you first start out, English might seem completely impossible.
You may feel like you are never going to be able to understand when people speak English, let alone figure out how to say anything in English.
It may surprise you, but English is actually one of the easiest languages to learn. Find out why:
1. English Nouns and Verbs Have No Genders
Many languages can be very tricky to learn, since you have to memorize the gender of each noun you learn.
Not only do you have to memorize the gender of each noun, but you also have to learn how to adjust each article and verb according to the gender of each noun.
Just this explanation alone is sure to make your head hurt!
Luckily, you don’t have to worry about these pesky rules in English.
No English nouns ever have genders, so you have one less thing to pay attention to.
2. English Is An Informal Language.
Another incredibly easy thing about English is that there is very little difference between the words you will use in a formal situation and an informal situation.
In fact, generally you will address people the same way whether they are an elder, your boss, you mom, or your friend.
This means you can worry way less about coming off as rude, as compared to other languages that have more emphasis on formal versus informal phrases.
3. English is Everywhere
In almost every city in the world, all you have to do is walk down the street and you are bound to see advertisements, signs, products, and other items all using English.
Most people in the world have been exposed to at least a little bit of English at some point.
Even if you haven’t understood or noticed the English you’ve been exposed to, it has definitely seeped into your brain.
All you have to do is start to notice and your brain will remember this hidden knowledge.
5. English Media is Easy to Find
There is so much English media that finding movies, books, newspapers, and other ways to practice English should be incredibly easy.
English speakers practically live on the internet, so it shouldn’t be hard at all to find resources and articles for practicing English online.
English is definitely the best language to learn in terms of accessing resources to practice reading and listening to English speakers.
5. Everyone Wants to Learn English
You should have no problem finding English classes and resources for English learners because millions of people on the planet are learning English.
You will not have to look far to find a study buddy or find someone to talk to who also wants to practice English.
In fact, people in your life will probably ask you to teach them a little English once they find out you are learning, and that’s a perfect opportunity!
Studies show that teaching something actually reinforces the knowledge in your own mind.
This list should motivate you and encourage you if you ever get to the point that learning English seems completely impossible.
You can’t definitely do it, in fact it’s totally easy!
