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.

It is essential to remember that it is not only what you do in the classroom when learning English, but what you do outside of the classroom that is important. Many students who are studying English only practice their English while in classroom and therefore miss out on a lot of opportunities to improve their skills.

When you leave the classroom, make sure to continue using English. Talk with your friends, use the telephone, write in your journal, read a book or newspaper, watch the TV or go to a movie. Whatever you do, make sure that you are using your English as often as you can.
