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.

It is important to pay attention to grammar mistakes you make in your speaking if you want to improve your overall conversation skills. When you get a correction from your teacher, try to write it down and then practice it at home.

For example, if you commonly use an incorrect preposition combination such as depend of, and someone corrects you by saying depend on, you should go home and practice that combination by repeating it to yourself. Then, the next time you say it incorrectly, you should correct yourself. Self-correction is a very important skill to learn because you will not always have a teacher around to make the correction for you.
