“What is the fastest way to master English?”

December 30, 2017 , by Dr Julian Northbrook

Very common question: How much time do I need to master English?

What this really means, of course, is, “What is the fastest way to master English?”

Watch this video and I’ll tell you:

I’m afraid there’s no magic way to master English.

Ultimately, you have to put in the time and effort to learn the language you need, then use it in the real world. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend a crazy amount of time every day. Indeed, if you’re like most people, you probably don’t have that much time.

That also isn’t an excuse to do nothing, though.

Wise words:

“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” — Abraham Lincoln

Very true, that.

It’s also true of things you want to achieve in your life. English included. Waiting until tomorrow doesn’t somehow make it easier.

I once had a student who used English in his work but was “too busy” to improve his English. But when he stopped and thought about it… the reason he as too busy was because his English wasn’t that good. Much of his work was in English and dealing with overseas clients. And he was wasting stupid amounts of time because again… his English wasn’t good enough for the job.

It wasn’t until he stopped…

And made the decision to start working on his English that things started to get better.

The thing is…

It doesn’t even need to be that much.

If you’ve got a good, consistent system for constantly inputting new language, for sorting that out in your head then implementing it in the real world then you can do a lot with just 15 to 30 minutes a day.

Not sure what to do?

P.S. The “fast” way is the slow consistent approach – which is exactly what I teach in my book, Master English FAST. Get it here.
