Pearson Senior Vice President Emma Stubbs joined Pearson in 2008 from the British Council, where she was a global IELTS manager for four years. Stubbs spent six years in China at the British Council, developing the presence of IELTS in the Chinese market.
Here are some of her advice for a businessperson on how to improve English skills.
- The biggest barrier in learning a language is confidence.
We all suffer from fear of making mistakes.
Native speakers make mistakes.
It’s normal. It’s not necessarily about accuracy.
It’s about communication.
- Start with putting yourself in a safer environment to practice. That might be talking to people you don’t know.
- Try to find high-quality English language newspapers and read them.
- Make most out of the latest technology. You can find English language materials online including podcasts and videos. You can practice listening even in 10 minutes to a meeting. Listen to a story for 10 minutes and try to summarize it as though you are telling it to your friends.

Doing English exams such as TOEFL and IELTS may require different approach in building English vocabulary and English fluency in general than just trying to learn general English.

I agree.I love learning English with bellsenglishonline.com I have tried for year to learn English but feel that this is a much easier investment than the time and money I spent on ther courses. I go to Great Britain every year and am thankful to have finally found a course that is really going to make it possible for me to talk in English.
