The Advantages of Learning English in America
English is very useful for everyone and learning it has many advantages in United States of America. Learning English in an English native speaking country is very helpful. When a foreign language speaker studies English in USA, he or she tends to learn English better, faster and in perfect US form. An addition, studying in the United States to learn English has three other advantages like having to practice English for daily activity, native English teachers and general English speaking society.
In the process of learning English in the United States, you can practice the language by talking with American people and this is very helpful if you are a student in the United States. Thais helps you speak better and faster. For example, when you speak with people around you in English all the time, it leads you to speak English well. Also, as you practice listening and speaking with native speakers, you gain confidence in speaking fluently and understanding the American accent. For example, when I speak with a native speaker I sometimes have a hard time to understand some words even though I know the words. Sometimes, Americans face a hard time to understand my accent even when I try to learn and speak in an American accent. In conclusion, if you practice daily, you will improve your English language skills.
Another advantage of learning English in the United States is having a native teacher. When you start to learn English with a native English teacher, you feel extremely comfortable using the language since they teach you the correct pronunciation. The native teachers are more comfortable in using the language because they have a rich vocabulary. For example, I have two teachers, one of them native and other non-native. In the class room, the native teacher is always teaching us new vocabulary and she feels free when she talks with us. The second point is that the native teachers teach correct pronunciation. When you first learn English, it is better to learn correct pronunciation so that when you speak people understand. Moreover, the native teachers help us with the stress places in the words and with good pronunciation. I think these two points help us to learn English better by the native teachers. Non-native speakers are not very forthcoming and have their own pronunciation problems.
The society in general is the last advantage of learning English in the United State. The general society of the United States is very cooperative with students. For example, I always go to the International House which is a place for all people, both American and international. In that place, society people help me with speaking English.
Moreover, English is the first language in the United States. To me, this means that I must speak English outside of home to do whatever I need to. For example, if I want a driver to drop me at the supermarket, I need to speak in English. Also, at the supermarket, I need to speak English to ask about groceries and other stuff. Overall, the general society helps me with improving English language skills and be confident while speaking English.
In summary, learning English in United States is very common for people from different countries and for various reasons. For me, there are three main advantages to learning English in the United States, like Practicing English most time, the native teachers help with pronunciation and new vocabulary and always helpful general society. For me, learning English in the United State is very important if one wants to learn it in correctly and perfectly.
