Lernziele für 4 Monate

Beitrag von Gundi »

Hallo,

ich bin neu hier und habe auch direkt eine Frage an euch :)
Da bei mir in knapp vier Monaten ein längerer Indienaufenthalt ansteht und ich bis dahin gerne noch mein Englisch verbessern würde (momentan vieleicht B1), wollte ich einmal fragen was realistisch scheint, was man bis dahin schaffen kann?
Vier Monate sind ja bei einer Sprache ein eher kurzer Zeitraum und all das Material das es dazu gibt erschlägt einen völlig. Da ich im Grunde alles verbessern muss (das Sprechen aber wohl am meisten) fällt es mir irgendwie schwer da Ordnung rein zu bringen.
Vieleicht hat ja jemand hier im Forum ein paar gute Tips wie man in einem bestimmten Zeitraum möglichst effektiv lernen kann...

Vielen Dank :uppy:

Namaste Gundi! _/\_

- assess your current level with the help of your last or current English teacher or use the internet

- think about and gather information about what you will really need to know (travel/culture...) and
what language skills you will need during your time abroad
(oral or written communication, technical English, business English, phone calls ... )

- create a prioritised list of all these skills

- divide the remaining time among the most important skills

- prepare yourself to start learning the essentials of the remaining stuff after you arrived there...

Hello Delfino,

Thank you very much for your comment.
My reason to go to India is a development projekt and I`m gonna work with some other Indian people who speak Hindi or English (and I´m not, of course, able to speak Hindi :lol: )
I would say my biggest difficultie is to speak english. It is not very easy for me to understand other people if they speak english, but most time I understand the most important things. But to talk with other poeple is very difficult for me. Unfortunately, I don`t know any native speakers or other people, who speak a very good english.
Actually, I`m watching english movies without subtitel and try to read some english books. And everyday some new vocabulary...
But how can I improve my speaking skills?

Thank you very much for your good advices. I believe you are right: I should try to make a prioritised list and to learn things which I really need there (culture/food/ smalltalk...)

Namaste :)

I have to learn now... :read:

Namaste is a friendly greeting in written communication, or generally between people when they meet.
It's not a parting phrase. There are other ways of saying goodbye.

meet people and speak Englisch
- ask people to correct you (try to insist on it politely)
- don't worry to much about making mistakes
- but remember the corrections of your tandem partner


Suche: englischer Stammtisch [your city]
http://www.google.de/search?q=englischer+stammtisch

Suche: English conversation groups Germany
http://www.google.de/search?q=english+c ... ps+germany

Du kannst auch bei den lokalen Hochschulen (ASTA, Fachschaften, Sprachenzentrum ...) nach Kontakten mit englischen Muttersprachlern fragen.
Bedenke, das die ausländischen Studenten häufig auch nach Möglichkeiten suchen ihr Deutsch zu verbessern. :)


Try to find the vocabulary you will need for the development project (e.g. technical terms, consider buying a comprehensive technical dictionary...).

You won't be able to take everything with you on the plane. So take only the most important things which need your personal care.
So start packing a box with useful stuff to be mailed to your accommodation there before you depart.
Leave less important things in a designated place for your friends and family to find easily - in case you need to ask them to send it to you after all.

Do not put all valuables in one box to be mailed to save on delivery costs!
Remember, there is always the chance you loose it.

So "Don't put all your eggs into one basket."

Don't bet everything on one single thing. Spread the risk around.

If something bad happens to the one basket containing all your eggs, you have lost everything.

It is less risky to distribute your eggs among several baskets. :jo:

I guess, next time I should take a closer look before quoting lines from an English website. :hammer:
