Improving your English

You can improve your linguistic skills by working on your writing, reading, listening and speaking. Reading and listening are the input while speaking and writing are the output product. To improve your English skills, try out the following;

  • Listening- Listen actively to not only what is being said but also how it is being said. You can do so by listening to music, watching movies, TV shows, and attending talks, plays, exhibition and so on
  • Speaking- While many people dislike the sound of their own voice, talking and recording yourself talking in English can help identify problems in your speech like talking too quickly, swallowing your S’s among others. Also, you can talk to your classmates or join chat rooms and practice your spoken English.
  • Reading- In order to get a sense of the grammar and the structure of the English language, it is important to develop a strong reading skills and it can be achieved by reading books and articles on the web as well as by switching your device’s operation system to English to reinforce the learning process.
  • Writing- This can help you to associate meaning to words and you can do so by writing down words and expression in a diary to remember them better and also by writing comments in English blogs.

The key to improving any language is to practice as much as possible. Good luck! :smiley:
