Wow! Incredible! I am gobsmacked! A million subscribers! I don’t even know how many people that is, what does that even look like?

Thank you, thank you to each and every one of you who has clicked on that little red subscribe button down there and joined me every week to practise English. With all of your support, I will be here making lessons for you for a long, long time to come. So we need to celebrate, right?

I’ve got a super special video lined up for you today. I wanted to celebrate with you, of course, and some of my very special friends. Friends that you might already know. They are all English teachers on Youtube and I’m so excited that they are here celebrating with us because I get to introduce you to them just in case you haven’t met them already.

What I love most about them is that they are all really unique individuals and they bring their own teaching style to their English lessons here on YouTube. It’s impossible to get bored learning English online because there are so many amazing, entertaining, talented teachers here. And they all work so hard to share their knowledge and their experience with you for free.

So while we are celebrating 1 million subscribers here at mmmEnglish, we are also celebrating the amazing opportunity that YouTube and the internet has provided for all of us to learn whenever we want, wherever we want, whenever we want, wherever we want. So who is here celebrating with us?

Listen carefully because they’ve all got a very important piece of advice for you.

Every time that you watch an English lesson on Youtube, I challenge you to write a comment using what you learned, every time. Because you know that repetition is key, start repeating right away!

Did you learn a phrasal verb? Use it in the comments! Did you learn how to pronounce an expression? Write a sentence in the comments and then read it out loud!

The good news is that you can complete this challenge right now in the comments below this video. Congratulate Emma and tell her that you love what she does!

Vanessa

The Speak English with Vanessa

My piece of advice, well it actually relates a little bit to Emma and her channel, I get a lot of students say “I want to learn British English” so I’m only going to listen to British people”

Wrong!

You need to listen to as many different accents, as possible.  There are so many accents to be found on YouTube not forgetting this beautiful Australian accent right here on this channel. I don’t mean me, I mean Emma.

So try and listen to as many different ones as you can and your ears and your brain will get used to understanding all of the variations in pronunciation across all the English-speaking countries, all of the English accents everywhere all across the world.

Do we have a tip for people learning online? Yes, a little and often. There’s a lot of research about how to be successful when you’re learning English. It doesn’t matter how intelligent you are or how old you are, the important thing is regular practice.

Practise on Youtube every day? Yes, 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there so a little and often.

Vikki and Jenny

My top tip for learning English online is repetition, repetition, repetition. We all know that by repeating a lesson, it helps to put it into our long-term memory so we retain all that fantastic information.

Now the great thing about YouTube, is it gives you the option to create playlists. Most people don’t use that feature but you definitely should. If you find a lesson is particularly good and you like it a lot or you find the lesson it is a little bit difficult to grasp and you know that you have to go back to watch it a few more times, add it to a playlist and then you’ll always remember how to find those lessons. Best of luck!

My advice to students studying English online is when you find a few teachers that you really like, follow them. Subscribe on Youtube, follow them on Facebook, even better if they have a mailing list, it’s their direct line of community to you and they want to teach you. It’s so much better than just watching random videos. When you really follow a teacher, you can start to know the path that you should be on. The sequence that you should watch the videos to get the most benefit.

Also don’t be afraid to comment on videos, answer other people’s questions and ask questions. When you start to engage in the community, it makes you feel like you’re part of something bigger and that can be really motivating. When you really follow a teacher and engage in that community, it can help online learning feel less random and it can give you more structure.

Rachel

Rachel's English

Remember to set realistic goals and don’t fear mistakes as you take steps towards reaching those goals. Mistakes are learning opportunities. For example, after having a difficult conversation, replay it in your head. When you have time to think clearly and calmly, change your words to what you should have said or could have said or could have said, you’ll be better prepared next time.

So our top tip for learning English is love it, enjoy it! Make learning English an enjoyable experience.

So let’s face it, you’re going to find some things difficult but try and find ways that you can actually enjoy it more. For example, rather than picking up a grammar book, why don’t you find a lesson on the grammar point you need on Youtube. Or why not get out into the streets and try and have conversations with native speakers or go to conversation practice clubs.

Find a way that works for you to actually enjoy the experience of learning English.

Leila and Sabra

Love English

Cultivate a learning mindset. Before we even learn the specifics of English grammar and pronunciation and so on, we have to have an open learning mindset. Basically, this means that you must believe in yourself and believe that you are capable of learning something new because you don’t want to star thinking I can’t do this, it’s so difficult I’ll never reach my goal.

That is a sure way for setting yourself up for failure. So what we want to do is start with a positive, open learning mindset and tell yourself things like, for example, I can learn English! I am learning a little bit each day, I’m doing a great job and I am 100% capable of becoming fluent in English if I try hard and focus.

So good, right? Thank you to all of my amazing wonderful friends. Thank you for helping me and my subscribers to celebrate and thank you for making Youtube such an incredible tool for education and for learning. You are doing a really, really good job.

And to my amazing subscribers, oh my goodness, you guys are the best! I have one last piece of advice for you.

Now you can make up any reason why someone else succeeds. You can tell yourself that they were lucky or they’re smarter than you or they’ve got more opportunity or more money or more time. No, the people who reach their big goals are not looking around themselves at everyone else, comparing themselves to others. They are focused on their goal and they are doing something every single day to get there. Little steps every day.

And yes there are going to be days when you feel like giving up, you’ll feel frustrated and angry. You’re going to tell yourself really rubbish things like, I’m not good enough and I don’t have enough time.

You need to push all of that aside. You need to keep focused on your goals and you will get the rewards. They won’t happen instantly, you won’t find a magic button that you can suddenly press and become fluent in English or whatever else you want in life. But what you need to do is simple.

You need to show up. You need to be here practising with me or any of these other amazing English teachers that you saw today. That’s it. Big life-changing things are not easy to do in a day. You need to stay focused, you need to take responsibility, you need to learn from your mistakes, you need to keep getting up every time that you fall down and then you will get there.

So thank you, thank you for coming on this incredible journey with me. Let’s not stop, let’s keep going! I will see you next week for another lesson. Bye for now!
