I Need Your Advices! Help Pleaes

Hello folks, how are you doing?


I wanna reach level C2 in a month(or at least finishing C1). My current level is almost B2, and I learn by myself usually.

These days I am really trying to improve my English skills and reach new levels or a high improvement that I can feel it!

Nothing works or it is not fast at all. Watching movies with English subtitels or reading short articles or practising by an application...


Do you have any advice for improving your language in a month, I need your ideas and experiences fox.

Feel free to suggest me your advices, I appreciate it.: )

Hello Aaram, unfortunately I don't have very good ideas how to learn a language fast, and I would need some for my German too. I just wanted to say that learning a language simply takes time and you may be underestimating the time it takes. You can't reach C2 from B2 in a month. It will take you years to reach C2, sorry but that's how it is. You may be able to reach C1 in a month but even that is quite ambitious and you probably have to learn English every waking hour during a month to achieve it. Good luck!

Dear Aaram, as you have a specific target, maybe you can look for learning material that corresponds to your intended level with trial tests and other exercises. Good luck!

You're welcome!! 

Actually, I am just watching :) no subtitles and no translation. The same with podcasts ... I feel that this trains my brain the best way. I may not understand every single word, but I am learning to get the context.

An English teacher also mentioned to have some English audio in the background...tv, radio, podcasts etc. This trains the ears without doing something actively :) 

I do translate words, but mostly when reading articles.

@Nika Thanks, Cool. I have a question from you. How is your process of watching movies and series on purpose of improveing a specific language, what do you do exactly? do you translate the words you dont know or just watching it? :))
