There are many things that you can do to improve your English. Which ones are best for you will depend on things such as your current English skills, where you live and whether English is your first language. You can take English classes in many parts of the world, and there are many other learning tools — such as audio and video recordings, computer programs and books — that you can purchase or even find for free. One of the best things to do, however, is to read, write and speak English as much as possible. The more you practice the language, the more likely you are to improve your English.

Take a Class

First, decide whether you want to enroll in an English class. These classes are available through schools or community education programs in many parts of the world. No matter where the class is offered, it is best if it is taught by a person whose first language is English. Some courses might focus on reading, writing or speaking, but others will teach students in all three areas.

Use English Daily

If you are living in an English-speaking country, you have many chances to improve your English outside of class. For example, if you have children who are learning English at school, you can improve your English by talking to them in the language and helping them with their English homework. It also can be helpful to use English in public, such as in conversations with people at the grocery store, on the bus or around your neighborhood.

Use Learning Tools

There are many products that you can use to improve your English, including tutorial books, recordings and computer programs. If you cannot afford to purchase these, you might be able to borrow them from your local library or find free versions that you can download over the Internet. One advantage of these is that they allow you to learn at your own pace and on your own schedule.

Watch Movies with Subtitles

If English is not your first language, consider watching movies that are in English, with subtitles in your native language. Another option is to watch movies in your native language, with English subtitles. Either of these methods will help you associate the English words and phrases with the corresponding words and phrases in your native language.

Keep Reading

As you become more comfortable reading English, be sure to read things other than instructional materials. For example, reading books and news in English can really help you improve your English. It can be beneficial to choose topics in which you are especially interested, which not only will increase your motivation to read, you also will be more familiar with the subject and might be able to understand the material better.

One Word at a Time

If you want to improve your English vocabulary, it can be helpful to focus on learning a few new words at a time. For example, you could learn one new word every few days and look for opportunities to use them in conversation. Another approach is to learn two or three new words each week and spend the entire week trying to use them when appropriate. You also could look and listen for words that you don't know, write them down, then look up their meanings later.

If you want to learn English faster, you have to communicate with your close friends or relatives in English, although they will laugh at you. That's the reality, but never mind that.

Avoid speaking with your own language/dialect. At first, it is OK to speak some English mix with "some of your language", and then later, you have to change "some of your language" that you might not know before into the English language.

By the time you're doing that, you are already improving your communication skills in English. And if you make this as a habit, you will know how to speak English fluently. Congratulations in advance.

I'm very impressed with this article and all the people that posted their comments.

I've got to say for myself that it's been uphill sometimes when you are learning a second language, mostly English. It's either a slang, a saying, a phrase, you name it. The most important thing is to immerse yourself in it. You have to love it, and have fun in the way.

My advice is to build a solid foundation with the basics and never back down. Never quit or give up, keep trying everyday, because when you think that you are losing ground, it's when you realize that you have earned a lot of knowledge. Do it 24/7 without hesitation and find support from friends and people who are interested in helping you out. Best of luck ---R.M

Millions of educated people move to english-speaking countries such as USA, Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand, and they live there for a long time e.g. 20 years or more. In addition, they cannot speak, read, or write very well.

Furthermore, Hollywood made thousands of movies in the past decades, but they did not show anything which can help for english learners. Moreover, there are lot of english newspapers around the world, but unfortunately there is nothing for ESL student which can help us to understand english newspapers.

My question is: Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I tried to search every day online in the newspapers, movies and other sources, but I could not find any one which can help me understand movies and newspapers.

Please let me know, then I will solve the problem. This is the best way for learning english, but how can I find these sources?

If you want to improve your vocabulary then download the free dictionary from the internet and

I'm really sure it will help you improve your vocabulary problems. If you want to improve your speaking skills, then do 30 minutes' speaking practice a day. Write your thoughts in notebook.

For example, how did you spent yesterday and what are your future plans? What do you want to become? There are all kinds of thoughts. Write in your notebook and it really works.

Always think in English, not in your mother tongue. If you do these kinds of things I really sure this will help you to improve your English. keep up the practice and practice and more practice! all the best.

@ Soha. This comes from a native speaker of English. I also have my degree in the subject.

First, you *must* stop using text speak in your writing. It's fine if you're actually texting someone, but in formal writing, words like "plz," "u," "ur," "4" and "2" must be eliminated. Learn to use the proper words. It's "please," "you," and "your." When referring to the number, it's "four." Otherwise, it's "for."

Go online and purchase a good English dictionary. This will help you learn new words, their spelling and pronunciation.

Learn to use articles like "a," "an" and "the." Don't say or write, "I go to store." Say, "I go to the store" or "I'm going to the store." It's not "Chair is broken," it's "The chair is broken."

Invest in a writing handbook like a Strunk & White "The Elements of Style" or a Harbrace College Handbook. These were written by native English speakers for native English speakers, but nothing will teach you to read and write English like a native like one of these books.

Read classic novels in English and take note of the grammar and writing style. Read an English newspaper and observe the writing style there.

If you want to write good English, then read what is written in good English. These suggestions are a beginning. It's hard work to become fluent in any language, but if fluency is your desire, you must do the work.

Let me introduce myself to you guys. I am Jason from Singapore. Let me share with you guys some tips or methods to improve your English.

First of all, choose a place like a library, community centre or even go to an English Church. Those places which i had mentioned above are places which you can learn English from.

Actually, This method is not so useful. To me, reading English storybooks is important. you can start from the basics and so on.

If for those people who want to learn English, try reading a simple storybook in a day. set yourself a target, so, you can aim towards it.

Give yourself some time to learn. And as time goes by you will find you yourself able to speak English well.

Best Regards, Jason L.

To

really expand your ability to speak you have to practice, practice, practice. The more people you speak to, the better your English will get. There's no real way around it. And, if you live in a community with lots of people that speak your native language, that'll make it harder. You have to just get out there and do it.

Yes, watching TV is a good way to learn conversational English--that is, everyday, spoken English.

To all those who want to improve their English, you need to do two things: get a good English dictionary and a grammar book. The grammar book should be on an elementary level. You need to learn it like a child learns the language. Also, read the reputable news web sites to see good, standard, written English.

*Stop* using text speak and abbreviations. This is not standard English, and it's a bad habit. *Don't* use "u" for "you"; "pls" or "plz" for "please"; "ppl" for "people" and so forth. Just don't do it. Using text speak in this kind of format makes you appear uneducated and immature.

If you're speaking to someone who is a native English speaker, do not be embarrassed to ask him or her to speak slower so you can understand. In all likelihood, the person will be glad to speak slowly to help you.

Most English speakers understand you are learning the language and will be happy to assist you in learning.

English is a big, complex language, and it takes time for a non-native to speak it well, as is the case with most languages.

Good luck to all who are learning English!

Ramya: This is good advice for anyone who wants to become a better speller. Use a good English dictionary. They are available at any reputable bookseller and there is no substitute for having one.

A good dictionary will enable you to find the spelling of a word, as well as learn to use that word correctly in a sentence. Even native English speakers (like me) use English dictionaries. Using a dictionary is the best help you can give yourself for spelling English words.
