For those who are not able to study English abroad with an immersion programme, such as those offered at Oxford English Academy in Oxford or Cape Town, have no fear! YouTube offers a wealth of free English-learning videos to help you.  Below is a list of videos who claim that they can help you to learn English fast.

Jade Joddle is an English speaking coach. In this video she explains her ‘Twenty Minute Method’ to learning English. She says that you only need to commit to twenty minutes a day and before you know it you will have learnt a lot of English. Twenty minutes doesn’t seem so bad, does it? Why don’t you give it a try!

Julian has a very interesting take on learning English faster, and it’s not what you might expect. He says that you should focus on less, rather than trying to learn everything if you want to improve quicker. That’s good news for those who feel overwhelmed by the immensity of the English language. Good advice, Julian!

This is a great, clear video with subtitles and lots of hints and tips for learning English quickly. Kristin speaks very slowly and writes all her advice on the board. I highly recommend this video for lower level English learners.

What? Learn to speak English in just 10 days? Sounds too good to be true! Sarah seems to think it’s possible and promises to deliver a secret to this seemingly impossible task. Just be warned, she does speak very quickly so it might be an idea to ask a native English speaker to paraphrase or translate the video for you.

So it seems that the bottom line with all the videos is that you need dedication, motivation and commitment. And with these three things, learning English fast will be possible. So what are you waiting for? Start today and you could be speaking English sooner than you think!
