30 English Words for Beginners

Posted on 31 July, 2017 at 0:30

Suitable for CEFR beginners (A1) + 


Language learning can sometimes be quite difficult, especially with a rather complex language like English, which has many tenses. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But the secret to learning any language is very simple: speak as much as possible!


Don’t worry about grammar too much in the beginning. Don't let complicated rules get in the way of what you actually want to do: speak English. Of course you will make a lot of mistakes in the beginning, but shamelessly speaking your target language as much as possible is the only way to succeed, and I recommend doing it from day one.


Start by learning 10 common nouns, 10 common verbs and 10 common adjectives. With just 30 words you can make about 1000 sentences! It is possible for anyone to learn 30 words in just a few days.


Here are 30 common words in English to get you started:


Nouns

Use with definite article (e.g. the man), or indefinite article (e.g. a man).


1. Man

2. Woman

3. Child

4. Car

6. House

7. City

8. Country

9. Money

10. Book

Learn these words and once you know them, you can express yourself in English! Here are some examples of what you can say:


• The house is big.

• The man makes a lot of money

• They have a beautiful child

• I know the city.

• The child needs food.

• We see a small car.


Now you can start speaking English. Be like a child and express yourself in the most basic way! I firmly believe that this is the best (and fastest) way to learn a new language.
