T.I.P.S – To Improve, Practice Skills (Only 6 Days to Christmas!)

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.

With only a few days until Christmas, Doctor English this week will focus on Christmas related suggestions. If you are planning to celebrate Christmas, there are many things you can do to get into the Christmas spirit and also practice your English skills.

Decorating the Christmas tree is a common family tradition, so if your family is celebrating Christmas, you can use this opportunity to practice speaking English and learn some new vocabulary words. Another common tradition is the singing of Christmas carols. You can find the lyrics to many popular Christmas songs on the Internet and learn the words. Finally, another big part of the Holiday season is Christmas shopping. Here you can practice both your speaking and listening skills in a busy, and sometimes stressful, environment. Whatever you do, there are many opportunities to get into the holiday spirit and practice your English at the same time!
