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 key idea to focus on for your overall communication is to speak English as much as possible. Remember that there are two important parts to improving your spoken English – fluency and accuracy. Fluency is speaking at a natural speed and accuracy is using the correct grammar. Both should be practiced in order to help your communications skills.

Try to make an effort to use your English as often as possible each day and think about your fluency and your accuracy. Most students always focus on either fluency OR accuracy, so don’t forget that both are equally important. However the most important thing is just to speak English whenever and wherever you can.

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