#223: How to Learn and Practice English at Home Alone

Over the past year, we’ve been spending a lot more time at home, but this doesn’t mean that you have to stop learning English or making progress in your language learning. We have some great tips for you that are going to help you get some structure in your language learning as well as some ideas on how you can continue learning and practicing at home.

Words You’ll Learn:

  • Jolly good
  • Add a string to your bow
  • Quiver
  • Fall head over heels
  • Gem of wisdom
  • To be in the same boat (with someone)
  • Humongous
  • Meetup
  • To chop
  • Avid reader

Quick Definitions:

  • Cutting-edge: highly advanced; innovative or pioneering.
  • Wisdom: the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise.
  • Input/output: when talking about practicing your English, input is what you read or listen to. Output refers to practicing orally or writing.
  • Push you forward (through difficult times): motivate you.
  • “You might end up with a jumble of ways of pronouncing”: an untidy collection or pile of things.
  • Pick up (on something): notice a mistake.
  • Put yourself out there: to put your skills into practice in the real word, as opposed to doing it at home alone.
  • Pops to mind: If something pops to mind, you start thinking about it.
