There are various ways to study English effectively and fast. Here is the approach that was practiced by me. It helped me to substantially improve my level of English from very basic (I couldn’t construct even basic sentences correctly) to a fairly high standard of academic English within just 6 month.
Anyway, you need to establish your goal. You need to learn the foreign language thinking about your goal. The connection between learning English and the goal is very important for your motivation.
There are several things you need to do during your English hours (3〜4 hours a day, 5〜6 days a week).
Pick up any movie you like that was originally filmed in English. It should be something you like a lot and has strong characters.
Watch the movie in your language a few times so that you understand each individual phrase very well and know when it’s said.
And watch the movie in English with subtitles. You will start to associate the phrases with meaning and the English phrases become familiar. Then you need to start pronouncing each word and phrase and they happen on the screen.
Try to mimic the actors’ voices. Become the character yourself! After one week of 3〜4 hours watching the movie you will learn it and will be able to pronounce the whole movie by heart.
The second movie will be faster. Repeat first movie once you complete second. After 10 movies you will be shocked!!!

One of the new teachers arrived in Japan only last week. He is an American and his name is Richard. He is going to teach them English. He has never been in Japan before so they have to speak English to him. They like the English class very much.
Richard comes into the classroom and smiles at all of them. He says, “Good morning, everybody!”
