Here are our top six reasons why you can learn so much with Hot english magazine.
1. It’s effective!
There’s a simple formula for learning a language that goes like this: input + practice = language acquisition. Very basically, “input” refers to the things you read, watch or listen to in English. And practice refers to what you do when you speak or write in English. It’s that simple! It’s what children do when they learn their first language. They’re exposed to language, they practise it and then they learn it... without making any conscious effort to study. Hot English magazine provides you with all the valuable language input you need. And best of all, the language has been carefully selected to provide you with the most useful words and expressions.
2. It's simple
In order to speed up the process of learning, you need “comprehensible” input. This means language that you can understand (more or less) – language that’s right for your level and that you can take in without too much effort. There are basically two ways for you to get this comprehensible input: through reading and listening. Listening is an extremely effective method of absorbing language – the words and expressions just float into your brain. But as you’re listening, you also learn about pronunciation, intonation, word stress, connected speech, sentence stress and a thousand other useful things. Hot English magazine has some excellent listening material that’s been specially graded so you get the language you need, delivered at the speed and level you require.
3. It's easy!
Reading is the other way for you to get comprehensible input. While you’re reading, you’re learning new words, revising previously-taught structures and absorbing thousands and thousands of useful expressions. This is crucial for your learning. And the great thing about reading is that learning takes place subconsciously. There are no exercises to do, no grammar rules to learn, no tasks to complete. It’s all natural. The language flows in through your eyes, and gets registered in your brain. What could be easier? Once again, Hot English has some fantastic reading texts based on motivating, interesting and up-to-date topics.
4. It’s useful!
One of the keys to communicating in any language is building up your range of vocabulary. In order to communicate effectively, you’ll need to learn lots of words and expressions. The important thing is to see those words and expressions in context – in chunks of language, in expressions, in phrases, in sentences not as isolated items of language! Every issue of Hot English magazine includes extremely useful, high-frequency words and expressions – language that you can use to communicate. Hot English is written in a fairly informal and chatty style, so there’s a strong link between the written and spoken word. And as the glossaries are in English you’ll be thinking in English too, working out meanings, guessing, hypothesising doing all those things that are so important for language development. Plus, as Hot English deals with such a wide range of topics, you’ll learn lots of different words and expressions every month!
5. It's motivating
One of the most difficult things about learning a language is finding the motivation to learn it. You might be tired, bored of the same old material, or just fed up of not making any progress. But don’t worry! Hot English can help here too. Hot English is up-to-date, practical, interesting and motivating. There are funny dialogues for you to enjoy, videos to help reinforce learning, and exercises for you to check your progress. Plus, it's all presented in an attractive way with lots of images to help with understanding. On top of that, the magazine is linked into a learning system (The Hot English Method) so you can get extra practice with the Skills Booklets.
6. It's complete!
When you get to a certain level, all you need is input and practice: to read, listen, watch, speak and write English! You don’t need to study grammar or do complex exercises. There’s nothing really magical or mystical about learning a language – it’s really just a question of time. Hot English provides you with the essential input and listening practice you need to ensure language acquisition. Plus, you’ll increase your range of vocabulary and you’ll be motivated to learn. You will learn English with Hot English magazine and that’s a fact!
