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.

Reading is an important skill that can easily be practiced on your own, and at your convenience. The important thing with reading is to practice everyday. That means you should try to read at least a few pages each day.

When you are reading, try to not focus on understanding the meaning of every word, but read for the general idea. Even native English speakers do not always know the meaning of all of the words, but can still understand the basic idea of the story.

In order to enjoy reading, make sure to choose something to read that interests you. It can be a book, magazine, a newspaper, or use the Internet to find links to web pages that you like.

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