Learning a language is not a secret. The experts will tell you that you need comprehensible input (e.g. lectures, texts, videos, podcasts), lesson review, practice opportunities and language reinforcement. The OpenLanguage Method puts these steps together to help save you time.

Your biggest challenge in learning a language will likely be maintaining your motivation to study. To start, we recommend learning some common expressions to achieve some early success. Seeing how you can use the new language to create new opportunities for yourself is the best motivator to continue studying. Afterwards, you can start to examine the common sentence patterns to provide insights into how to quickly expand your fluency with the language. Do not start by studying grammar tables, but instead focus on mimicking high-frequency language. OpenLanguage lessons are designed to help you learn this way.

Introduction to the English Language

English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now the most widely used language in the world. It is spoken as a first language by the majority populations of several sovereign states, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and a number of Caribbean nations. It is the third-most-common native language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. It is widely learned as a second language and is an official language of the European Union, many Commonwealth countries and the United Nations, as well as in many world organizations.
