If your team is focused on English grammar then It’s time for a change in strategy. How many people spend years studying grammar with little or no progress for their efforts. Grammar is a set of rules which give the language a structure.
But If you expect to see improvement in your team’s comprehension, they will have to put the grammar book down and start listening to native speakers using real vocabulary. That’s the kind of English that they’ll be hearing on their next international conference call, at the upcoming expo/trade fair they attend or when that foreign customer/supplier calls them.
They won’t have to listen to boring Cambridge audio recordings either. Accessing quality content today is easier than ever before. I’m going to share 3 great tools that your team can implement today.
- Movies and T.V. series:
In conclusion i’d just like to add that like with most things in life, with English the more you invest, the greater the returns. Start listening to English when you’re in the car. Try watching a T.V. series that you’ve already seen in English. With time you will feel the difference. Your ear will pick up more and you’ll be able to process real English.
