Because, you started learning a little bit a day.

Suddenly you’re speaking and understanding a whole lot of English!

1.  5-Minute English Audio Lessons

  • Time required: 3-5 minutes a day

Why audio lessons? Because listening is easy to do. You listen to songs, audiobooks, lectures, and of course, you can listen language lessons.

How would it work?

You press play. You hear an English conversation. Then,  the teachers explain all the words.  You repeat. And now, you know a conversation. In just a few minutes.

Listening to audio is one of the best ways to learn English in just 5 minutes a day. You can listen while walking, driving,  or at work.

So, where can you find audio lessons. Here are some examples of audio lessons from – an English learning program.

2. Get the English Word of the Day

  • Time required: 1 minute a day

Want to learn a little bit of English every day?

Start with the word of the day.

Every day, you get an email with a new word every day. You check it. You listen to the pronunciation. You read the meaning. This takes a minute or less.

The English Word of the Day is a great tool to help you start learning English. You learn a word every day. You build a strong habit by checking the words daily. Then, you start learning more and studying harder — because you have a strong habit — and you become fluent. Of course, it takes time though.

3. Get English PDF Lessons & eBooks

  • Time required: 5 minutes

What are PDFs? Well, PDF files can be used for all kinds of things: documents, important letters, but…

But, think of PDFs as little books for your phone or device.

There are plenty of PDFs online that are lists of English words, phrases, actual lessons… and even actual books in PDF form.

And if you’re on the train or are waiting somewhere you can open one up and review English words and phrases. With the free list below, you get 30+ PDFs for all kinds of conversation topics: family, love, food, work, school, giving directions, and so on.

4. The Daily Dose of Language App

  • Time required: 1-3 minutes a day

What’s this app?

Well, it sends you a “daily dose” of English…. every day.

So, every day, you get a reminder to check your new lesson. And these lessons are quick and cover anything from English slang and cultural insights, to words and phrases. It’s random.

But, if you like that randomness, it’s a nice 5-minute supplementary tool. Though, I think it’d take you less than 5 minutes to learn English with this.

How do you get it?

  1. Choose Android or iOS
  2. Download the App (it’s free) and you’re done

5. Learn English with Duolingo 

  • Time required: 5 minutes a day

Speaking of apps, here’s another one.

Duolingo is another interesting, supplementary study tool.

It’s mostly matching games and fill-in-the-blank quizzes.

You won’t learn to speak fluidly with it. It’s not a complete program. It’s kind of like Daily Dose.

You will learn words and that’s good enough… if you’re learning English for 5 minutes a day. The selling point is that it get you hooked on learning. In my opinion, if anything helps you learn English and stick with it – whether an app, a book or audio lessons – then that’s a good resource. Duolingo may do that for you too.

  2. Choose Android or iOS
  3. Download the App (it’s free) and you’re done

6. Learn English with Video Lessons

  • Time required: 5 minutes a day

Video, like Audio, is an easy way to learn.

You just press play and watch and listen to English. Now, what you need are the 5 minute lessons.

I want to suggest YouTube here but I won’t. Why?

Are you low on time? Do you want 5-minute learning resources? And do you honest-to-god want to learn English? If you answered yes, YouTube is a bad fit.

See, that’s because YouTube primarily entertainment and will distract you into watching other things. YouTube makes a lot of money keeping you jumping from video to video. Even if you think you will only use it for English… their algorithm still will work against you. Long story short: it’s bad for focus. Yes, you’ll have fun but you’ll waste your time and not learn anything.

Instead, I’ll suggest these video lessons. Just click on the images below.

Conclusion. Back to You.

That is it for now!

Now you know some fun and easy ways to learn English in 5 minutes.

Why should you try and learn English in 5 minutes a day?

Because it is easy.

Do you know why that is so IMPORTANT for SUCCESS?

Simple. Things that are easy to do, are easy to continue… and finish! If you can learn some English today, tomorrow and 4 weeks down the line without problem, you’re on your way to fluency.

But, if you choose an English textbook, which ends up being hard, you won’t continue.

So, starting easy sets you up for long term success.

At some point, you’ll think that 5 minutes is not enough. Which is good! At some point, you’ll feel you’re ready for 10 minutes. And so, you’ll add more time just like someone at the gym will add more weight because they’re ready to do more.

And that is how you’ll master English.
