Learning English is a valuable—and fun—tool which has a lot of benefits. And with over 1.6 billion people speaking the language, it also means you’ll be able to converse, entertain, and socialize with someone, somewhere, at any time.
Hollywood blockbusters always come out in English—and watching them dubbed to your native language is really not the same experience. With the U.S. and U.K. being two of the world’s powerhouses of business and finance, English is also the default language of the economic world.
Whatever your reasons for joining more than a billion people who choose English as their second—or third or fourth or twentieth—language, you need the right tools to be successful.
Apps like Duolingo and Busuu are cool. Babbel and Mondly also help build your vocabulary and grammar as you learn. All these tools have a place in your learning.
But on their own, they’re not enough. Every app has a different focus, and every learner has a different style. So it makes sense that every unique individual needs a little variety in their language learning game, right?
Right! To keep your knowledge growing, and stay engaged, you need variety.
Most importantly, you need to talk to other English speakers.
And that’s where Discord comes in.
Wait, what? Discord is for gaming, not learning English!
We hear you. But Discord is actually one of the best places on the internet to learn English—and we’ll show you why.
Discord: Why We Love It For Learning English
If you’ve ever played a MMORPG or first person shooter—or practically any mobile game—you’ve probably been on Discord. It’s the #1 social media platform for gamers to message, get game support, and share their wins. It’s also one of the most solid platforms for free voice chat.
And that’s what makes it a great free English language learning tool.
Discord language learning delivers:
- Free access: Discord is available for free on all Android, iOS, Windows, and web devices. It has extensive support across all platforms, and you can switch seamlessly between your devices without losing your place—or your patience.
- Genuine social media: Discord gives you a place within a global community of like-minded people. Share tips and get feedback from a tight-knit group of active English language learners—anywhere, anytime. Open the door to a massive mix of English speakers from all over the world, who speak with different accents, different vocabulary, and different levels of fluency. With a highly engaged Discord English community, you will always have someone to practice with.
- Talking works: It’s pretty common knowledge that the best way to learn English, or any language in the world, is by speaking it and listening to it. With Discord, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anyone who speaks English. It doesn’t matter if you’re living in an isolated area where you can’t practice with other English speakers. If you’ve got a mobile device or computer, you can speak English and listen to English speakers—and get valuable feedback in real time—any time you want.
- Real-time notifications: Discord allows you to send and receive notifications just like you do with chat apps like Messenger, WhatsApp, and Viber. You can check in from anywhere to practice your growing skills, and with a highly active membership, there’s always someone around to engage with you quickly.
