10 Tips to Make English Learning a Habit in 2022
1. Make Plans
To embark on any new journey, making plans is essential. Similarly, when you decide to learn something new, it is important to envision your goal and work accordingly. Aiming at small and regular lessons will not only help to save your time but also aid you in keeping a track of your progress.
2. Enjoy Learning
We ensure your steady progress if you enjoy what you learn. Your interests and hobbies are very crucial. For instance, if you love food, you can learn vocabulary related to food and read food magazines. You can choose the area that piques your interest and thus commence your learning journey.
3. Read Thoroughly
Books are our best friends. Pick any genre or style that raises your curiosity. Classic literature, paperbacks, newspapers, websites, emails, social media feeds, and much more. Go all out and explore all of these styles. This not only will help you to take a closer look at the differences amid these but also strengthen your vocabulary across categories.
4. Binge Some More
It is equally important to consider the audio-visual medium along with the books. We are talking about movies and web series. Movies, web series, and even TV shows in English bring various accents and innumerable words to your disposal. You become well versed with new words as well as how to apply them in sentences. This might fulfill your fetish of binging some shows while you learn a great deal out of them.

5. Listen and Humm
Reading, watching, and humming – these three syncs perfectly, don’t they? We have the other two aspects already covered so let’s take a peek at the last one. When we say hum, we actually mean sing it! This is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to improve your English. Listening to songs will help you improve your vocabulary and expressions. Apps like Spotify provide easy access to endless songs.
6. Read and Observe
By now we have stated multiple options from which you can choose and begin your journey to learn or improve English. But this is just not enough! While you listen and practice, it is equivalently essential to record your own voice during the practice. This will enable you to observe your pronunciation, accent, and tone and improve if required.
If English is not your first language, this is the most crucial tip for you. The majority of people tend to use an accent that bends towards their native language, making it hard to eradicate. So, pick some small clips and imitate the dialogues, accents, and expressions. This will help you to keep the accent of your native language in check.
8. Take Notes
While all the above-stated tips focus on language and pronunciation, we now throw light on a very integral aspect of taking notes. This practice will enhance the memory of lessons you have learned. Make a separate notebook solely for this purpose. Add vocabulary, sentences, the grammar of each lesson on a new page. This will make the revision an easier task. It will also provide you with a glimpse of what you have learned from each lesson and help you monitor your progress.
If your goal pertains to improving your English, adding to your vocabulary is a way to excel. But you must keep on revising the new words so they do not slip past your memory. A revision session each week will prove to be extremely beneficial in your journey of learning English.
10. Do Not Give Up
Optimism is essential for progress. When you commence your journey, you might find yourself stuck in a whirlwind. Do not worry, ‘slow and steady wins the race.’ You might make errors but believe in yourself. If your development is not at par, don’t push yourself too hard. Maintaining a stable pace will help you attain your goals sooner or later. Enjoy the journey without worrying about the destination and maintain a positive outlook, no matter what happens.
