English Learning at Home: L-S-R-W Methodology
You might be wondering what is LSRW methodology. This is the scientifically approved methodology you need to follow while learning the English language at home. You don’t need to confuse about the methodology because you have already gone through it. Any person who studies their mother tongue intrinsically and automatically follows this methodology to learn the mother tongue. Have you ever thought that why you can’t speak English like your mother tongue? That’s just because while learning English at your school you haven’t followed the LSRW methodology. Let us look what is LSRW methodology.
LSRW methodology is nothing but the abbreviation of the Listen-Speak-Read-Write methodology. When you observe the linguistic development of a child the child may not be speaking for the first year. He/she is observing the surroundings and listening to the sounds and languages. After listening to the language for a long time the child will start to imitate it by saying it incorrectly or delicately. The parents on that time repeat it correctly and make the child repeat it again. Thus he/she starts to speak the language. Then after speaking the language, he/she will be equipped with the letters and alphabets and try to read the books and all. After reading the book the child will try to produce writings. Many of the persons who are very fluent in their mother tongue are not good writers. It is just because they haven’t read much. So, listening-speaking-reading-writing is the perfect methodology you need to follow.
While coming to the English learning program in schools the teachers will first try to make us write and make us say the alphabet A then only, we hear the language and then we are forced to speak in the English. Since the methodology is reversed in the school not very student will be able to speak in English fluently. So, while studying English at your home by yourself you need to adhere to the methodology of Listening-Speaking-reading-writing. Entri Spoken English Course is designed in such a way that the student will go through these phases correctly. Let us look into the particulars.

Apart from that there will be much live session also to have the maximum opportunity to listen to the language. What we are listening is also important in this methodology. Because we were not listening the speeches of great persons or movies like classics while we were kids. We were listening to the words of parents and grandparents about the introductory words about everything. So, what you listen is also important. Here the course is designed in such a way that you need to listen so as to improve.
