SOME SIMPLE WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR


ENGLISH

This is what most people would advise: read. Read anything and everything in English. You can read story books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, comics,
English textbooks, instructions and ingredients on food packages, advertisements, etc. For story books, dont force yourself to read something too difficult or
something you know you wont enjoy. Make reading fun! Read books that you ENJOY reading. I hate to read books that bore me too.

Watch English movies with subtitles. This would be one of the favourite way of learning English. Not only do I get to have a fun time watching the movie, Id
be learning new words at the same time and knowing how to pronounce them! Usually, you can get movies with English subtitles on DVDs.

Listen to English songs. Read the lyrics as you listen to the songs. Listen to your favourite songs and sing along to them.

Start a blog in English. This is one way for you to practice your writing. Blog on something that you love. If you are a fan of movies, start a blog and write
about your favourite movies, your favourite characters, what you think could be improved in the movie, what new movies to expect next year, etc. Besides
blogging, try joining online forums, engage in online chatting and more.

If you dont want to maintain a blog, why not write to a pen pal? Itd be even more fun to have a pen pal from a different country! I used to write to other people
from the US, Germany, Mexico, and even Yugoslavia. I remember feeling excited when I see letters with foreign stamps on it in my mailbox. If you dont want to
spend too much money on stamps, then get a local pen pal.

Write in your diary/journal in English. This is where you can write anything in it. But if you do write something you wouldnt want others to read, make sure
you hide it somewhere safe! Or try not to write anything offensive at all in case someone does find it. You can also write about neutral stuff like the places you
went that day, what you ate, who you met, what you did, etc.

Be best friends with a good English dictionary. You can use Oxford, Collins, Cambridge, etc. Buy a dictionary that youre comfortable with and USE it at all
times. Keep it next to you when youre reading. I always put my favourite Oxford dictionary by my side when Im reading. So when I stumble upon a word I
dont know, I dont have to get up and look around for it. Its right there by my side. Thus, I have no excuse for not looking the word up!

Speak the language whenever you can. Speak it with friends and family. You can also sing along to English songs! Try karaoke! Dont be shy to try speaking
the language. Dont be afraid that others will tease you. In fact, theyll admire you for your courage and confidence.

Learn a new word a day. Keep your own vocabulary notebook and write a new word and its meaning in it every day. Refer to it as often as possible so that the
new words will stick in your head.

You can also learn new phrases, idioms or proverbs a day. A kick in the teeth, sit on the fence, make a clean sweep, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,
a mans home is his castle, etc. When you come across a saying that you like, write it down and its meaning in your notebook!

Actually, there are many more ways for you to improve your English. If you have extra money to spend, you can even sign up for English courses, English
camps and so on. But why throw away your money when you can learn the language in cheaper ways?

Why Learn English ? 10 Reasons to Learn


English

There are
many
reasons to learn English, but because it is one of the most difficult languages to learn it is important to focus
on exactly why it is you want to learn English. Here we will look at ten great reasons why English is so
important.
1. English is the most commonly used language among foreign language speakers. Throughout the world, when people with different languages
come together they commonly use English to communicate.
2. Why learn English when it is so difficult? Well, knowing English will make you bilingual and more employable in every country in the world.
3. Despite China, the United States is still a leader in technical innovation and economic development. English is used in the United States and in
each of these fields.
4. English is commonly spoken throughout much of the world due to Great Britains expansion during the colonial age. People in Australia,
New Zealand, Canada, parts of Africa, India, and many smaller island nations speak English. English is the commonly adopted second language in
Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands. Speaking English opens these countries and cultures up to you.
5. Another reason why English is so important is that it is the language of science. To excel in science you need to know English.
6. English is based on an alphabet and, compared to Chinese or Tamil, it can be learned fairly quickly.
