When you attend our English language school in Hawaii, there are many benefits of having a friend or partner whose native language is English. Learning goes far outside the classroom, and there are so many ways to progress your skills that are fun and easy. Why have an English speaking partner?
You’ll have someone who can help with common mistakes. Those who have spoken English all their lives are very familiar with the language, and can more easily identify mistakes and help you correct them.
There are so many topics you can discuss that aren’t only learning experiences, but interesting and educational. From the nation’s economy or cooking to various business topics, politics, or even football – no topic is off limits!
An English speaking partner can keep things exciting. You don’t want to talk about the same things over and over again, and someone with a creative imagination can keep things fun. It’s important to have interesting or entertaining topics to discuss with your partner. From the latest movies to fashion or sports, imagine the language skills you’ll develop by scheduling regular sessions with a native English speaker!
Whether you’re a beginner or at a more intermediate or advanced stage in learning, your English speaking partner is highly capable when it comes to communication and can communicate with you at any level – their patience is without boundaries, so you don’t have to feel like you’re being rushed.
Your partner’s objective should be to help you reach your goals. When you don’t understand something, your partner will explain it or give you an example. Have questions? Ask. An English speaking partner will give you lots of encouragement and inspiration, making your desire to learn even greater.
You can imagine how helpful it would be to engage in communication sessions with an English speaking partner, rather than someone who speaks your own language and is only a bit more skilled in English than you are. It’s a huge benefit!
At ICC, our English language school in Hawaii is geared toward learners of every age. Learn for your career, for general communication, or to become a teacher yourself – the possibilities are endless.
