Of course it will. Taking a month off is one thing, but three months is a long time. I recommend taking a short summer language course. Many schools run summer programs and some (like Languages Unlimited) offer very dynamic and highly orally-interactive summer courses that don’t drain the fun out of the summer. In fact, they enhance it.
However, there is a lot you can do on your own too. Try the following tips:
- For Vocabulary
- You can learn 300 new words in a month, spending just 15 minutes per day:
- - Open www.lingualeobr.com. You can register or login with facebook.
- - Find favorite movies, songs, books or jokes – whatever you like.
- - Click on 10 new words (you’ll see the translation), which you can add to your online dictionary.
- - Choose games to memorize these words, and learn English playing.
- Note: It’s in Portuguese. For other languages use english-attack.com.
- For Speaking
- Don’t forget why you are learning English – to communicate. If you live in an English-speaking country, pay attention to the English conversations around you. If you don’t have contact with native English speakers, you can use a facebook application to contact people:
- - Open apps.facebook.com/speak-in/
- - Select the language you want to learn and your native language.
- - Click on “Select Levels/Topics”, and choose what you want.
- - Click on “Learn Together”, and start speaking.
- - Also you can click on “Language Exchange” to communicate with native speakers.
- For Grammar (and other things)
