- 06 things you can do to improve your English
1- Change the language of your Mobile phone and laptop to English:
The first tip that i have for you is changing your operating language on your phone and your computer.
It well help you to learn lot of new words, now if you are a beginner a little difficult for you, but then eventually you will end up having a lot of words for your vocabulary.
Of course we also have options for facebook and twitter of using native language, but instead using native language switch it to language, trust me using your facebook and twitter which we all love it will help you to lean new words so go ahead, go under your settings and change the operating language on your phone and computer.
2- Read or watch the News in English:
The second tip that I have for you is to read and watch news in English, now staying informed buy what’s happening in the world is a great habit, but then do that in English rather than picking up your newspaper in your native language and start picking up English newspapers.
Start watching BBC CNN, and trust me this would also build your listening skills, so of course watching news is updating yourself with current affairs. So it would also help you to build your vocabulary and talk about it with your friends, so It isn’t an excellent idea!!!
So the next time you are buying a newspaper or you are watching news, make sure you do that in English.
03- Listen Music in English and learn the lyrics:
The third tip that I have for you is to listen to English Music, well we all love dancing on English numbers, signing English numbers, but at times we struggle with lyrics.
If you enjoy English music just download the lyrics or go to any websites and you will find the lyrics. So once you have the lyrics in front of you, listen the music and sing along. In fact this would also help you to get those words out of your mouth, because if you enjoy singing automatically English words will pour out of your mouth
04- Read children’s books & watch cartoons :
The first tip that I have for you is to read children books and to watch children cartoons, don’t be embarrassed about doing that, don’t think that oh my god am not so small to read these books.
Don’t be embarrassed, just go ahead and do that, I will tell you why.
The reason is the language that is used in these books is of course for children, so no big words are used instant simple language is used which children can understand, so once you start reading these books it would help you to understand language well and of course they are a lot of pictures in these books illustrations are given so you would know what they are talking about or what is written about.
Same applies when you are watching cartoons, they are usually repetitive so same and simple language is used on constant basis , so this way you would also build your vocabulary and also build your listening skills and eventually you will end up having so many news words for yourself.
So go ahead by buy books or download it for your learn lots of websites who offer these kids story books. You can do that or you can watch several children videos on YouTube.
05 – write in a journal every day in English:
The first tip that I have for you is to maintain a book, if you start maintaining a book it would help you to write better, what you can do is every night spend five minutes writing about what you did throughout the day , so whatever events or whatever happened with you can just write up a small story, also you can add new phrases or news words that you have learned, either when you are talking to people you can pick up some words, understand the meaning , look at dictionaries and make sure you put it in that book and then whenever you want to refer, you can just quickly have a look and this way you will build your English well.
06- Find a partner to speak English with:
The last tip that I have for you is to speak with English with someone, well you can do is you can find a partner to practice the language, so be it a friend be the family member or even your office clean, don’t embarrassed about it, just go ahead and start practicing because the more you practice the language would come naturally to you. So rather than being nervous or trying to struggle with words or you know trying to make sure that whether you are going correct or are you making any mistakes, a partner would definitely help you to correct that. So eventually you will really confident and then you will speak so fluently.
So go ahead despite someone whom you can practice language.
