Structural approach

It raises no doubt that structure of the language can be distinguished as quite a certain number if elements, which are interrelated in their turn and if we touch upon the teaching-learning aspect, it can be presented as follows: reading, listening, watching, speaking + pronunciation, writing + spelling, translating. I have widened a little bit the traditional set of elements, but I think that the added ones are also of paramount importance when we deal with learning a foreign language.

The fact is that a perfect balance is not so easy to find... especially if we keep in mind that some aspects are supposed to be paid attention to more on the first stage or later. As for beginners, I believe that video material is the most essential, since for starters when we launch ourselves into learning English we perceive better when we see images, connected to words and phrases, as context is not helping at the moment.

What is more different purposes demand additional focus on particular layers of learning English - when we want to speak correctly, but don't care about spelling, it is obvious what we need to do. BUT providing we want to have profound knowledge of English all the aspects are important. Another division is - vocabulary and grammar, neither can survive without the other, so pay attention to them both. Develop the grammar structure in your mind and string new beads of lexical elements.

English is a building in your mind - keep erecting it, brick by brick!
