Learning English with Pleasure: Alternative Ways

Grammar books and multiple exercises are, without any doubt, a good old-fashioned way of studying English. At the same time, let’s face the truth: it’s nothing but a piece of hard work to you. However, learning languages doesn’t have to be just another complex task on your life path. You can enjoy the process while gaining necessary experience and knowledge. All you need is to know the interesting ways of learning English and there are many of them.

Movies and TV series

If you enjoy watching American or British movies or belong to a certain TV series fandom, then the best way to learn English with pleasure is to watch whatever you like in original language. You can use the subtitles if you are only a beginner, to help yourself with understanding. By watching movies in original language you will not only expand your vocabulary, but it will also help you to make your pronunciation better. A little bonus: in most cases the translation drops out many jokes and funny quotes, and you will be surprised at how much more interesting your favorite film appears to be.


Many people listen to songs in language they don’t know just because the music corresponds to their mood. However, wouldn’t it be even better if you could understand the text and get the singer’s message in full? Besides, it is much easier to memorize all kinds of words when they are connected to a particular melody.


This advice is only good for “bookworms”, because for people who don’t especially like to read books in English will be another learning torture. But if you are able to look up new words in a dictionary every other minutes and still not to lose interest in reading, this might be the best way for you to study English. There is also a possibility of a “light version” – you could read comic books or graphic novels, then the images would also help you understand the meaning of the text and therefore – make your reading easier.

Website or Blog

If you are also kind of geek or a blogger, you could help yourself with learning English by creating your website or blog in English. However, if you are not a geek and do not wish to learn coding, recover from broken Wordpress theme or simply spend your time on website’s creation, you could simply create a blog. At the beginning you could post both in your native language and in English – or translate your original posts in English.


Surf the Internet, find English forums or simply join English groups on Facebook – and communicate with people. It would also help you if there was someone you could talk on Skype to. However, bear in mind that native speakers sometimes use slang or make grammar mistakes automatically. Perhaps it would be better to watch movies and read books first.

As you can see, there are many ways that can make your English studies much more exciting. But don’t forget – grammar exercises are still a priority, they will give you the basis for further learning.

Some decent advice for sure, will try to bring them into my practice. Group work does really matters but all the group has to be on average same level. If someone is failing he can take an individual lessons like back there in Poland and then go on with group study.
