How to best use MyEnglishWorld

MyEnglishWorld is a real-life language-learning environment, full of news, discussions, etc, but with a plus: a pedagogic filter.

MyEnglishworld gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an English environment and to communicate in English. And it also gives you pedagogic support to help you improve your English and correct your mistakes little by little.

Here are some things you can do to have a better experience:

1. Be immersed

Visit the website as often as you can, read a bit, watch a video… It’s not necessary to completely understand everything. It’s OK if you understand only 50% or even less. Just be present in this English world and you’ll get better at understanding things little by little.

2. Be involved

Don’t just read and watch. Try to participate too. Post updates, photos, etc, and comment on other people’s posts. If you feel your English is not good enough, start by making simple short comments and in a few months it will be easier for you to participate more.

3. Use the language Gym

Don’t forget the Language Gym and interactive quizzes. They help you learn English in a more organised way and consolidate what you have learnt.

4. Use the contextual support

MyEnglishworld’s contextual help is a powerful tool that will help you learn to use English more correctly.

There are three colour codes:

  1. A blue underline (like this) means an explanation. The difficult words and expressions in the posts usually have this colour code. Move your mouse cursor over them to see explanations that help you understand better. (Note: If you are on a mobile device (phone or tablet), tap with your finger to see the contextual help.)
  2. An orange underline (like this) shows something that is not exactly wrong but can be improved.
  3. A red underline (like this) means a mistake.

When you make posts or comments, we read your texts and add contextual support to it so that you know what is right and what is wrong and can work to improve your writing skills. So, when you see the red colour code, you should try to make a new comment and correct your mistakes. You can also suggest and discuss corrections or improvements for other members’ comments and posts.

5. Keep a notebook

You can learn better if you combine different ways of learning. Keeping a notebook in which you right down the new and useful things you have learnt can be very effective in helping you remembering those later. Don’t write explanations in your notebook; write “complete sentences” that can help you communicate and express yourself better.

Be in touch, be involved, use the language gym and interactive quizzes, use the contextual help, and keep a notebook…

And you’ll see that, with the opportunity to communicate in English, and with our pedagogic help, you’ll gradually improve your English in a fun and practical way!
