Как выучить английский язык урок 3

Lesson 3.
Most learners make one big mistake when they study English. They make this mistake because of how language is taught in most schools.
I'm going to give you one piece of advice so that you can avoid making this common mistake:

Don't study vocabulary lists.

Huh? What's wrong with learning vocabulary?
Vocabulary isn't wrong. You need it. The problem is the traditional way of thinking about vocabulary.
Most people are taught to study lists of words by themselves: applesurrenderenormous. But when you learn words by themselves, a few things happen:
  • You learn what the words mean, but you don't learn how they're used. You don't learn what other words they fit together with.
  • The words get saved in your brain one by one. So when it's time to make a sentence, you have to pull them out again one by one. That makes it slow.
  • You don't get a real connection to the words. They're just boring words in a list, so it's easy to forget them.

Instead of teaching words, E4S teaches phraseseat an applesurrender to (someone), an enormous mistake. This gives you better understanding of how words are used, not just what they mean.

So here's a new rule: Never learn a word by itself. Always learn two or more words together in a phrase.

Tomorrow, I'll share an even better way to learn that will make you more fluent than ever.
