WHY ARE YOU LEARNING ENGLISH?
Welcome to EnglishConnect. Learning English can
help you pursue educational opportunities, seek
better employment, and expand your circle of
friends. The EnglishConnect lessons will help you
build speaking and conversation skills. These lessons do not teach English reading and writing. You
can learn English reading and writing skills in other
EnglishConnect courses.
Before you begin, decide why you are learning English
and write down your reasons. When you feel discouraged, look at what you wrote. Remembering why you
are learning English can help you stay motivated.
I’m learning English because
In order to successfully learn English, it is important
that you:
○ Practice English every day. A little practice every day
is better than a lot of practice on only a few days.
○ Make weekly English goals. These should be specific,
such as “I will learn 20 new words.” Write down your
goals and record your progress.
It is also important to decide what, when, where, and
how you will study.
WHAT WILL YOU STUDY?
The EnglishConnect Learner’s Manual
This book will help you during your EnglishConnect
course. It contains activities for each lesson and other
helpful resources. However, you cannot learn English
from this book alone. For this reason, it is important
that you attend class each week.
○ Bring this book to class each week.
○ Write in this book to take notes and to complete
activities.
○ Review the current lesson vocabulary and learn the
homework vocabulary in the vocabulary appendix.
○ Preview the lesson for next week’s class.
○ Use the grammar appendix (in the back of the book)
to review the grammar you use in class.
My English Practice Plan
EnglishConnect courses come with a plan to help
you practice English 10+ hours every week and keep
track of your practice time. Use this plan to record the
hours you spend practicing and to track your progress. My English Practice Plan suggests several ways
you can practice.
○ Practice and listen to spoken English by attending
class each week.
○ Complete the Invitation to Act included at the end
of each EnglishConnect lesson. This gives you an
opportunity to apply what you have learned in class.
○ Review and practice the vocabulary from each
lesson. Practice writing the words as well as saying
them.
○ Practice the homework vocabulary at the back of
the manual. The homework vocabulary is an expansion of the lesson vocabulary.
INTRODUCTION: ENGLISHCONNECT 1
vii
○ Practice the conversation from the lesson with a
partner or by yourself.
○ Preview the vocabulary for the next class. This prepares you for what you will be learning.
○ Duolingo is a resource available for free for both
Android and Apple users. Visit the corresponding
app stores. Please note that Duolingo uses your cellular data, so you might want to use it when you are
connected to WiFi on your handheld device. Duolingo is also available online for free at duolingo.com.
It is recommended that you spend about 10 to 15
minutes a day practicing with Duolingo.
○ Participate in Speaking Partners, a program that
provides you with the opportunity to speak weekly
with a native English speaker through video chat
such as Skype or Facetime.
○ Other English practice activities include watching
English movies, television, or podcasts or listening
to English radio or other audio. It also includes practicing English with classmates or others.
My Foundation
In many areas, My Foundation is a class taught as a
companion to EnglishConnect English classes. My
Foundation helps individuals learn and live principles
that lead to spiritual and temporal self-reliance. This
20-minute class is usually run by a class president who
assigns group members to facilitate a discussion of a
principle from the My Foundation manual.
WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW WILL
YOU STUDY?
Study tips
○ Choose a place that works best for your study
habits.
○ Choose a consistent time of day to study and practice English.
○ Find a native speaker or someone who is learning
English to practice with outside of class.
○ Speak English as much as possible, both in and
outside of class. If you don’t know how to say
something in English, try to describe it using words
you know.
○ Make a list of the new words you learn. Review this
list often, perhaps by making flash cards or by using
a vocabulary notebook.
○ If you have access to the internet, you can review
each week’s lesson by watching the video from each
Listening section online.
Learning a new language is a process that requires
time, patience, and persistence. It can also be exciting
and fun! Congratulations on your decision to learn
and practice English with EnglishConnect.
