Some tips to enhance your English mastery

By Azys Syaiful Anwar

      Today, English is the main need of people to communicate to the universe. It is also listed as the national graduation examination of high school students. Besides, English has many specific purpose, such as business, public communication, etc. The mastery of English becomes the main requirement in reaching our success.

    Since Indonesian do not speak as their first or second language, they may find many difficulties in understanding English. Government has set English to be taught from the elementary school to senior high school. This is one of efforts in improving English mastery of Indonesian.

    English, basically, has different structure and grammar with Bahasa, Indonesian Language. It has more complex structure and pronunciation. In English, people need to consider the time when they want to tell their own activities. They have to speak differently when they want to express the past, present or future activities.
In this blog post, I would like to give several suggestions to learn English well:

  1. Make a speaking club. This is very important to enhance your speaking ability. You can make a group of friend and start to practice your English constantly.
  2. Watch English Movie. You can learn from a movie while enjoying the story. You need to ignore the translated subtitle and listen to the conversations provide in the movies (or use English subtitle if you do not get the movie story).
  3. Write a lot. This is very effective ways of learning English (only in my opinion). You can learn the sentences structure, connective words, vocabulary and many more. Since you need many reference in writing, it is closely related with reading. Then, you'll get more knowledge while learning English.
  4. English Day. This will help you mastering English by practicing it to your surrounding. You can simply choose the best day of a week and make it as English speaking day. This will help you in mastering English as the communication purpose.

     I think that's all of my opinion about how to effective English learning. They are very simple and I hope it can help you, especially non-native speaker of English in mastering English. You can read more The Sun Shine articles if you like this one.

We need friends and commitment to do that. Language is about culture. To familiarize with a culture, one has to practice it in his/her daily life, as a part of his/her routine. Then only by that, one can master a language.
