Episode#6 – Inefficient English Classes and Books

English classes and books: Inefficient ways to learn English

  • Yesterday I visited local library and found few English learning books. Most of these books were grammar oriented and I found none of these books efficient for my English learning.
  • When I was in India, I joined a English class and through out the course I just learned the grammar and never improved in my speaking. Few of the classes that pretend they are good at teaching English, but they teach only grammar in their classes.
  • I think it would be great idea to introduce efficient language learning systems like The Linguist at school level so that student can learn English in a proper way.


Your linguistic friend,

    I agree with you, I want them to realize that we can reach our goals more natural way. Especially to my friends who spent a few hundred dollars a month for the ESL school. However most of people don’t bereave it for a long time, do they?
