When you hear how I learned a foreign language, you have to remember a few things. In 1993, when I was starting to learn English, no one had heard of the internet. I wasn't able to read websites on topics that I found interesting or follow blogs. And I have no idea how I decided which movies to see without my favourite movie review website.

My reading practice was limited to literature. All I had were the few books on sale locally, plus whatever I could get from my cousin in America. For listening practice, I only had the news and cartoons on cable TV. DVDs didn't exist at all. People bought and rented VHS videos but in Poland there was no spoken English on them. The only way to hear that was to visit the movies.

My dictionaries were all in book form until I received my first PC dictionary. It came on at least six disks and had unhelpful explanations and few example sentences. It doesn't sound very useful but in fact, I loved it, because of its ability to work with other programs and find English words more quickly. Today, computerized dictionaries have simple explanations and lots of examples.

If I were a complete beginner learning English today, I'd spend hours on the web, reading about my favourite topics, downloading up to date movies, emailing English-speaking friends and posting comments on forums. Yes, I admit, at first, it would probably be hard to understand real-life English, but I'd spend time looking things up and in the end I'm sure I'd pick up the language much faster than I did back in 1993.

(Adapted from an article by Tomasz R Szynafski)

  • Encourage people to start learning a foreign language.
  • Complain about the use of technology in language learning.

To watch films in English, Polish people in the 1990s had to

  • found information at a faster speed.

  • It’s a great way to improve your English because you can find things online that interest you.
