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.

One of the skills that is often least practiced and can really help to improve overall communication skills is writing. Students who practice writing can often identify mistakes that are made when speaking and can also improve vocabulary.

One way to practice writing is through keeping a journal. The best thing to do is to write a small amount (maybe a half a page) everyday about what you have done. If you feel that this is too much, try writing at a minimum once a week and then write one or two pages. A journal is a great way to record your experiences, thoughts and actions, and at the same time, improve your English skills.

If you would like more information on T.I.P.S for English, please email Doctor English with your questions at drenglish@vec.ca.


  • Hello. I'm a student studying English as a second language. I think it's a great idea to keep a diary every day. It's personal, so I don't have to write anything difficult. I can write anything I want to, so it's easier to continue writing. I'll try myself. Thank you.
