Let's share ways to learn the language. What do you recommend? Are there books, tapes, classes, teachers that have really helped you?

What really worked for me was watching TV and reading. You might not understand every word, but you'll understand the overall idea. That's the best way to learn, because it's like a native child learning his/her language. You start to understand other words based on the ones you already know. Get movies in English if you can and read a book entirely in English. When I first started, and knew very little, I read teenage books that weren't too simple and yet not too complicated. At first I didn't understand much, but the more I read, the easier it got, without having to look in the dictionary.

Right now I'm learning spanish and I try to buy Spanish magazines and watch the Spanish channel. I also decided to read the same book in English and Spanish at the same time, so I can just look at the English book if there is something I don't understand in Spanish without looking in the dictionary.

Anything goes - listening, talking, reading and writing. If you want to have a comprehensive knowledge of a language you should do all above-listed actions.

You can find some great training aids at the BBC site:

Why not? For example, journalists do write and speak about things they don't understand. :-)

TO Наташа Антонюк:
COnsidering your question I want to say that professional interpreters and translators are trained to work with different lexis including law related vocabulary. They are not specialists in this field but they learn the terms and their definitions. Anyway it's not very difficult - you can use many useful books, JUST ENGLISH for example.

I recommend to study language in English speaking country. that would be the best way to live and work there among English speakers.

Listen, listen and listen. Podkasts and audiobooks help me a lot in my learning. And speak with the native speakers.
