Not so long ago, I needed the English language. Previously, she studied it in school. And though the school was English, almost everyone I knew was lost. Language, as always, needed just on-the-very urgent. Time was just enough, or rather something like month or so. Engage with the private tutor of English was not just any opportunity.
Importantly – an elementary was not enough time to really do this. And the timing, as always, propped up. My girlfriend, that worked with me, just engaged in private with the teacher of English. Successes it has definitely been. But since I had an urgent, she told me to listen to English-language radio on-line and gave a good ssylochku: – fully working. Here you can listen to BBC radio live over the Internet. What was pleased that on the same site you can find a bunch of other workers, and useful links.
Since my work-mostly in one spot at the computer, I I can listen to the radio, not looking particularly from the work. I took up in earnest. Of course, it was very hard in the beginning. Many unfamiliar words, turns. And they all speak so fast! Thank God not all taught in school was forgotten. At first I began to hear certain words. There were many unfamiliar words, had to dig into the dictionary. But, surprisingly, the longer you listen, the more you start to get to the heart. And what at first seemed quite well, not possible, then turned out well, if not easier, then, at least within reach. I compare, of course, there is nothing, but a month listening to foreign radio, I began to perceive speech in an English ear is much better than even after the end of the English school. Definitely, tutoring, I would have helped even more. But I believe that such an option is good for people who have very little time and very great need to study and practice application languages. So, good luck to all those who engaged in this difficult task. I hope my experience will be useful to someone.
