I do not know if this topic can be called like "challenge from TMAN", but in it I collected all the advice I gave in his subject for learning English.
I think that this information will be very useful to interested people.



Books for learning English



1. Universal English textbook for beginners
   New English File                                                    New Total English                                           Speakout
                                                                                     
  
2. For activating vocabulary
   English Vocabulary in Use                                  Oxford Word Skills
                                             
  
3. Textbook for grammar
Essential Grammar in Use                                    Grammarway
                                           
4. You need to mention 3 textbooks on grammar from Raymond Murphy and Martin Hewings
First level                                                                Average level                                                  Advanced level
                                                                                         

5. Also do not forget about a series of textbooks from Oxford from the creators Norman Coe, Mark Harrison, Ken Paterson, John Eastwood and George Yule
First level                                                                Average level                                                  Advanced level
                                                                                           

6. Book for those who have just started studying!
Scholastic Children's Dictionary                                 Children's Illustrated Thesaurus
                                                           



To learn English, you can watch English movies with subtitles. Here is the list of those films and series that I used.



My Fair Lady (1964)      Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)               The Office (2001—2003)                    
                                                             
                                          Extr@ (2002—2004)
                                              


I would also like to add that you can learn English using different sites. Links to them I will not leave, I will leave only the names



I'll talk about two resources - Busuu and Duolingo.
I'm not trying to name the best method of learning English, but only acquaint you with the practice - my and friends.

Duolingo

Having learned about this system after the need for training courses has disappeared, I can judge the effectiveness of the system only by the feedback of its graduates. If you evaluate only this indicator, you should definitely try it.

The Duolingo project was launched in the US. It is built on the technique of igrofification - the path from the beginning to the end of the training is fixed on the gaming skill tree. The technique pays much attention to written lessons, dictations. If you perform the task with dignity - you add points. Failure to do so results in a loss of life and a return to the beginning of the lesson.

Busuu

International social network, which unites people to study the language. Here you can communicate with its speakers, learn grammar, memorize words. The educational materials of the site are diverse, however, to have access to full content, you need to pay a subscription. But it's worth it. You can learn both on the computer and with applications for smartphones.



I hope I did the right thing when I made this post. I hope that the information turned out to be useful. Good luck to all!

I'm not sure if this is of any use to you or not? https://fittotalk.com/english-talk/index.php?topic=25.0

It'll give you a chance, and others, to practice English with things like word orders, punctuation and grammar.

English is quite a forgiving language, someone who is fluent in it can usually pick up what you have written if you don't use the right word order but have the right words or words similar to the right ones, however, it would probably be a useful scheme that Jet Cash is doing to get people to write a bit better here.

I don't know where nullius went to, but anyone looking for posts deserving of merit should look no further--he makes very few mistakes and is a talented writer.  The books listed in this thread might be pretty good for general language improvement, but nullius's post history is a true lesson in how to get merits here. 

English shouldn't be a major determinant of getting merits, but it is since the main section is English.  There really should be merit sources in every local board, but I don't think that's the case--nor do I think that the majority of users in any given local board a probably deserving of merits anyway.  Mediocrity and laziness prevail, that's my guess, just like on the English section.  Most users here just want to crank out shitposts for their campaigns and not just for one account but multiple.  There isn't enough time in a week for all those accounts to make thoughtful posts.

I'd suggest locking that thread and paste a redirection link at the bottom of it (just my thoughts, keep both open if you wish).

I thought about this and decided that you are right. Edited the main post, where he inserted a link to this one. Many thanks for the advice. I am very glad that all the participants of this forum help to make it better! Good luck!

I'm a newbie, and I have bad English. Before I join this forum I have done english practice. But, I stopped midway due to economic factors. Then I tried downloading the duolingo app in the play store. In my opinion, this duolingo app is good enough for someone with bad English. Because I've tried it. But, does getting merit should have a good quality of english? I've read some guides to get merit. There are only posts made qualified, informative, and constructive.

The majority of merits are awarded in the English speaking parts. You can get merits in your local board but they might be a bit more scarce as sources are as we are generally a forum based on the English language.

If to take in general, in local branches very seldom share merit. I do not know. can this be the mentality of my country or something else, but experience is experience.

If you are getting an impetus to learn English to post in this forum then you are sick dude. It is good for you to learn a new language but your attempts at doing so prove the fact that you are a shitposter who comes here to spam and earn some "free cash" while doing so. This type of mentality is responsible for the spam in the forum.

If you come to this forum in order to get merited then you need to get lost.

The reason I follow this forum is just to add knowledge about bitcoin and improve my English. I am Indonesian. Not because of economic factors. And I have also read the rules of the forum here that it is forbidden to be a spammer and I certainly will keep it away. To hell with merit. I'm not stuck with that. If you suggest me to learn a language other than English, have you mastered the others?

Mastering the English Grammar is one of the two things to receive a Merit but the other thing you need to make your good grammar pay off is the content of what you are posting. Even though you are good at grammar but your posts lacks content or doesn't have any value for other members you won't be receiving any merits, I also recommend while you are practicing the English language you also need to learn subjects related to cryptocurrencies as this is the only way you can properly apply your writing.

I completely agree to this. If I had to choose one between the two, I would give more weightage to content only.

Some members might be giving more value to English and writing skills and I respect their choice.

It is books that help to broaden the horizons of knowledge, as well as correctly formulate words in sentences. That's why the main emphasis in studying I did on reading books. I would not even write in the topic of what I do not know. Even before registering on the forum, you should think about having enough knowledge for it.

Well, learning to speak English fluently will definitely make you a good writer. Of course the constructiveness of a sentence or paragraph filled with information will definitely be noticed. With that surely merits may be given if they find it very helpful.

Sure there are lots of books out there but still, Learning still depend on a person's attitude on how they will be determined learning how to improve themselves.

but still appreciated the effort finding useful books. Good job.
