- An effective approach to learning English
Indeed you heard or watched the story of the tortoise and the hare when they decided to hold a running competition between them. After the hare ridiculed the turtle, the contest started, and everyone began to exert their utmost energy. It was shocking; the turtle won the championship, received the cup of appreciation and respect, and won the excellent memory award and good example.
It is indeed a remarkable story that carries a fundamental principle, which we benefit from in various fields to this day, including learning and mastering the English language and today. Through this article, we will learn how this principle has a substantial impact on learning and mastering English.
Do not be like the rabbit who started the race with great enthusiasm and high activity, then soon became bored and shaded under a tree and fell asleep until the time passed. Instead, step by step, studying English for several months straight without any practice or learning a new word.
The problem of many young people is that they imagine that learning English is like learning other skills. However, a new language is hardly acquired at the end of the year or in several months.
The truth is that learning a language is not like other things because language is something inherent in humans and an essential tool for communication between humans. The English language needs a long time to reach proficiency, which may exceed a year, so do not underestimate it and know very well that it takes a long time.

The first person will most likely notcomplete the 3 months at this rate because he will quickly get bored andfeel that his mind no longer understands because of High pressure, English need a slow fire to cook it.
Interruption is one of the biggest problems contributing to young people's failure to reach English fluency and proficiency. The language needs continuous practice to be established and entrenched in our minds.
Whichenables you to listen and speak naturally, then the language will become part of your daily life. You will watch movies, listen to the news, communicate with others, and then you will never back down and forget thelanguage.
So, if you want to master English, set yourself a long-term plan, a plan to go with it, and practice. You can study or work and learn English simultaneously, but try to dedicate two hours or more to English and not less, so it is a feasible amount of time.
In addition, try to take advantage of free time to practice listening, reviewing words, and other activities that develop your English language skills.
You take a huge step back when you don't listen to English, learn new words or revise previously learned words. Therefore, don't let your day go without any activity or practice, even if you are very busy.
I wish you success and reach the finish line, and then you will receive many prizes and not one prize, the language is a
