When we are learning English, it is important to use and practice our English as often as possible.
All we need to do is
Let us consider the 4 skills that we need to use a language well.
The more we listen, speak, read and write in English;
The more we will be able to be comfortable in using this language.
Listening: We donâ€™t need to try too hard to understand everything.
We just have to listen and we will soon understand.
There are cassettes and CDs available in the market.
We can listen to BBC, CNN and Voice of America.
On television, we have a big choice of programs: films, chat shows, documentaries, news.
Speaking: Speaking is one thing that we cannot do alone.
So we should practice as much as possible where there are people to speak to.
Nobody will create English speaking environment for us unless we do it for ourselves.
We should choose a partner or a friend with who we can practice speaking English everyday.
Reading: We can make a habit of reading English newspapers(like The Daily Star) and Magazines (like The Readersâ€™ Digest) daily.
We need to read the right level of English. If it is too easy, we will make no progress. If it is too difficult, we may become discouraged.
Also, we can become a member of the library of the British Council.
There are short stories and classic texts in english.com English Reading with notes to help us.
Writing: The medium of instruction in our university is English.
All teachers of each course are giving us a lot of assignments.
So there are lots of scope of developing written skills for students.
In effect, we can keep a diary and write at least one page everyday and students must do so and get it checked by respective teachers.
This is how we can improve our English.
