T.I.P.S – To Improve, Practice Skills

Tired of studying English through basic grammar practice? There are many other creative ways to practice and improve your language skills than just by using a textbook.

A complaint that I often hear from students living in Canada is that they don’t get to practice conversation very often with native speakers, other than their teachers. One of the key problems they face is how to meet and make friends with Canadians.

The best way to meet people and potentially make friends is through common interests. That is why one of the best suggestions is for students to join a local community center. Here they can get involved in activities with local Canadians in their area and also enjoy things like sports, cooking classes or workshops. The community centers have many different programs available, usually at very reasonable prices and some are even free! So find the nearest community center in your area and see what they have that might interest you.
