Eager to Improve Your English and Explore Canadian Culture? Try These Tips during ESL Studies

Learning a new language is about much more than mastering grammar and vocabulary. To make the most of the experience, it’s important to connect with the culture around you. This is the idea behind immersion-based learning. 

Immersion means learning a language in the most natural way possible by experiencing life in places where the language is natively spoken. This kind of exposure will expand your understanding of a language at a much faster pace, providing you with countless opportunities to apply what you’re learning and understand the context behind new vocabulary and phrases. But beyond that, it will also help you connect with locals around you, making your transition to a new country a lot easier. 

Learning English in Canada is the perfect example of this. At POINT3 Language Center, you’ll get to improve your English skills while immersing yourself in the history and customs of Canada. If you want to take your language learning to the next level, here are some tips for making the most of that experience!

Explore Canadian Media in English

There’s a lot to engage with when it comes to Canadian media. From CBC News to Canadian movies and TV shows, you’ll find plenty of content to support your language learning while taking virtual language courses at POINT3 Language Center.

The best part about learning through popular media is that it won’t feel like learning at all. Think about your current interests and find a Canadian media channel that you’ll enjoy listening to or watching in English. Maybe you’re interested in history documentaries or cooking shows or music. Exploring these in English will help you to pick up on the right vocabulary and phrases that Canadians use on a regular basis. You can hear how the local people actually speak and learn how to talk about your own hobbies or interests within a Canadian cultural context.

Attend Local Events With Canadians

Undoubtedly, the best way to immerse yourself in a new language is to speak to the local people. During courses at POINT3, you’ll gain confidence in your English speaking abilities with the feedback of your instructors. This will prepare you to spend your free time practicing your new skills with the Canadian people. 

While improving your language skills, take the time to check out events or group meetings that might interest you. If you have a hobby or activity you like doing, find somewhere where you can get involved in the local community and meet new people. This is a great opportunity to put your oral skills to the test while picking up new vocabulary, phrases, or slang from native English speakers. At the same time, you can build a network of friends to support your linguistic and cultural immersion in Canada.
