- English is a skill not a knowledge. The skill needs practice. It is similar with the driving a car
- The traditional methods bring traditional (average) results (if you make a lot of effort)
- Nothing against grammar, do it, if you like it. Only not first but last.
- Learning the language takes time. Not necessary big effort.
- A teacher is helpful, not necessary. What is necessary are models to imitate (in case of your native language your parents for example)
- I want from you not to think about English every day, I want from you to think IN English every day
- EFL (Foreign? Forget about such term) ESL (Second? Third, …or x. It does not matter) I would only add 'N' into it to create ExNL where 'N' stands for 'Natural'
- Learning languages is more play than serious business
- There is no quick-fix to gain it, just regular activity
- The language is about communication, the communication is about understanding, the understanding is about listening – so, start here (children do it always, naturally and successfully)
- Learning languages brings joy. Is that so? (in your case)
