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 dictionary can be a very useful tool in helping students to learn English. Not only can it provide definitions for unfamiliar words, but it can also include information such as phrasal verbs, whether nouns are count and non-count and common prepositions to use with words.

Be careful when purchasing a dictionary, to make sure that your dictionary gives you more than just the definition of words. Electronic dictionaries, although more convenient are not always as accurate as paper dictionaries. If you are a high intermediate to advanced student, an English-English dictionary is the best choice to help you advance your skills and to avoid translating from your native language.
