Well, I am an engineer, I have worked in industry, I have trained hundreds of engineers in different corporate houses, so I guess you can safely accept what I say.
I started learning English systematically very late in my life. I spoke my first sentence, my own creation, at the age of 23. I studied in Gujarati medium schools. I never knew that English would be so important in my engineering profession. But during my work in GNFC and then in LnT, I realised that English is like a passport to success. I saw many engineers whose content and skills were good, but they did not grow as much as they should because of their poor command of English. So after 4 years of industry life, I left it and started learning English. Of course, I acquired all the qualifications necessary to become a teacher of English. Can you imagine, a person who spoke his first sentence at the age of 23, became, at the age of 40, a National Vice President in English Language Teachers’ Association of India.
If you ask me, “I am convinced that English is important for my career and anyone can improve it, but what how should I go about learning it?”
Well, the sequence is very simple.
- Find a proper guru, teacher, guide, coach, whatever you call him or her.
- Discuss your background, needs, etc with your guide.
- Decide what kind of English you want to learn — British, American, Canadian?
- Find authentic and appropriate material.
- Keep working hard under your guide’s supervision.
- Ruthlessly and critically analyse your performance and progress.
- Practice, more practice and still more practice.
