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.

Participating in sports is a great way to utilize your English skills and have fun. Team sports are a good way to practice your communication skills with other team members, however individual sports can also give you a chance to use your English.

For example, a popular sport in the winter is skiing or snowboarding. This is a sport which you practice on your own, but has a great social element to it. When you are riding on the chair to the top of the hill, you have a perfect opportunity to talk to the person or people next to you. Ask them questions about what run they like to ski or make a comment about the snow or weather. That will help you get a conversation started and use 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.
