字幕列表 影片播放 列印英文字幕 Hello, everyone, and welcome back to English with Lucy. Today I am going to show you six everyday habits for improving your English. And these are things that you can do at home. One of the best way to learn a language is to make it a part of your daily life, and you need to do this by forming habits on. I have got some great ideas for you. Some of these habits are really enjoyable. For example, the 1st 1 which is performed guided meditation in English so guided meditation is great for relieving stress levels on anxiety and making you feel more connected with yourself. But doing it in the language you are learning can offer so many benefits, often listening to English trying to understand English. Learning English in general is really, really stressful for students, but guided meditation sessions are designed to relax you, so you may find yourself picking up on a lot more. I have got three recommendations for great YouTube channels that offer guided meditation. The first speaks with a British accent, the second with an American accent on the third with an Australian accents, and you can choose which is best for you. For British, we have Caroline McCreedy simply become aware of your breathing. She has got the most beautiful voice and accent for the American accent. We have the mindful movement and now turn off all distractions and commit this time for yourself. You can see there's so much vocabulary to pick up on on. Some people find that listening to foreign languages in a subconscious state can help them pick up on your vocabulary. It doesn't happen for everyone, but try it and see if it works for you on the last one for Australian accidents, we have Michael Seeley and you understand that Yes, these. Ah, your thought. But you also know and understand that her you are is so much more than simply your thoughts, right? Let's move on to habit Number two. Habit Number two is all about keeping yourself inspired and motivated. Okay, Something that I found so helpful and interesting when I was actively learning Spanish was discovering other people's language learning journeys. And I want you to do this with other non native English speakers who have reached a level of English that you also want to reach every day. Try and watch a video of somebody sharing their experience. You can learn so much from them. There is only so much I can teach you as a native English speaker im in your shoes because I've learned other languages. But I'm not absolutely in your shoes with English. That's why I always say it's great to listen to native speakers and native teachers, but also non native teachers because they understand where you're coming from, because they were once there, too. So I've got an example. Few. The I'll link below. There is the most lovely girl. She's from Brazil, but she speaks English with this most incredible British accent. She has absolutely nailed it, and she tells you how she's achieved, that I am originally from Brazil, and I'm just a regular English student like all of you out there learning English. But I thought I would come if every day you can make it a habit to listen to at least one motivating and inspiring learning journey story. You'll pick up on so much knowledge and insight, and you'll feel much more confident about your own learning process and journey. You'll realize that you're not alone. You're not stupid. learning English is bloody hard. It really, really is. And these people who have achieved amazing accents and wonderful fluency, it should be really, really proud of themselves. Now this next segment of the video, This next habit has been sponsored by Lin Goda Andi. It is incredibly relevant. It is to take a lesson every single day. Make that habit of taking a lesson every day on this is so relevant, especially in these strange times where so many of us are having to spend so much more time at home alone.

You have my link in the description box. You have my code. Class one. What are you waiting for? Right, Let's move on to habit number four. This one is work out in English. There are two ways of doing this and I have many, many recommendations for you. Online fitness classes are booming because everyone is at home. They are so convenient and they are also full off language learning opportunities, so many verbs, so many propositions, lots of pronunciation to learn as well. Working out is something that you should do anyway, so why not multi task and learn English at the same time? I have got four recommendations for you to our British. They speak British English on to speak American English. My first recommendation is Joe Wicks from the Body Coach TV. He speaks with a cock me accent during the look down. He has been doing a daily live work out, but you can watch these after their lives as well. We go down this come up and then we go. 123 Joe's workouts Normally high energy, they're made to make you sweat a lot of interval training. High intensity interval training, hit training. We also have the wonderful Lucy Wyndham read. She is so lovely. I've had the pleasure of meeting her many times. She speaks with a beautiful British accent. Her videos tend to be short on, suitable for all fitness levels. They're great if you've just got 57 10 minutes in the morning, or you can stack lots together and make a bigger workout. I love her fitness videos. If you put in 100% you get in result of 100% back. So that's where I really want you to focus this week on doing this for seven days. Then we have two American channels they're quite different. We have blow Gallardo days. Her name is Cassie and she speaks with a very clear American accent. Hey, guys, Cassie here and welcome to your seven day glued challenge. I'm so excited to be focusing on the lower part of our body for this entire we. I do a lot of Kasi's workouts myself. I love her brutal beauty. Workout is quite old now, but I do it a lot, and it's really, really great for reaching those muscles in your bum that you can't reach with just a normal squat on. We also have yoga with Adrian. She teaches yoga on. She has a beautiful accent as well. She is really a pleasure to listen to her. Hi, everyone. Welcome to home your 30 day yoga journey. It's Day 19 Drumroll, please. I have linked all four channels down below. The other habit that I recommend to do with working out as well is if you like walking and running or you want to get into a walking and running. Listen to audiobooks whilst doing this. Maybe you could listen to a learning English audiobook on this actually brings me on to number five, which is multi tasking, so I'm not just focusing on working out whilst listening to audiobooks. There's so much more that you can do whilst listening to audiobooks or other things, maybe radio programs, podcasts, anything that you want to listen to in English. Do it whilst doing something else whilst you're hoovering whilst you're cooking whilst you're cleaning whilst you're working from home, there are just so many opportunities that add an audio element into your daily life. And if you do it every single day, are he'll be picking up on so much pronunciation. So much for cavalry on so much additional knowledge as well on now, for my last habit, Number six, it is participate on disgusts, and I'm talking about joining forums that are relevant to you, places where you can have genuine written conversations about topics that interest you. Writing a little bit every single day is great for improving of spelling, improving your vocabulary and improving your writing skills, and even better if you can have someone corrected as well. An online forum platform that I absolutely adore is read it. I spend way too much time on there, and there's so much positivity on Reddit. There are so many lovely people. Don't get me wrong. There are some terrible things as well. But forums like relationship advice ask men ask women legal advice. Malicious compliance are linked down to them. But they're all forums where people post their problems and other people respond. You can read and improve your reading skills and absorb new vocabulary, and you can also offer advice as well. You can mention Excuse me, English. I'm not native and in brackets say, if anyone wants to correct me, I'd be so happy on Do you will find that there are a lot of people on Reddit that are willing to take the time to help out someone else. There are so many subreddit thes are sub forums on reddit that cater for so many different interests. Photography, art, certain breeds of dogs, anything. If you want to find people to share opinions with toe, ask opinions from I think I read. It is a really good place, right? That's it for today's lesson. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you are able to implement some of these habits into your daily life, thus improving your language skills. Don't forget to check out the lingo that language sprint.
