What makes a successful learner of English?

I put that question to a group of Advanced level students two weeks ago. Here are the ideas that they came up with:


Watch movies, tv programs

Love English

Memorize grammatical structures

Submit themselves to the pressure

Connect with people

Take risks

Put themselves into English speaking environment

Tolerate ambiguity

Realize that not everyone learns the same way



Motivated and know why

More concerned with correct English, not perfect English
