    How to improve your English skills

    مُساهمة  مصطفى منصور في الثلاثاء يناير 05, 2010 5:50 pm


    My most important piece of
    advice is: "Do something, anything




    If you don't do anything, you won't
    get anywhere. Make it your hobby, not a chore, but above all have fun




    Don't be in too much of a hurry
    You're setting off on a long journey
    and there'll be delays and
    frustrations along the way




    Sometimes you'll be in the fast
    lane and other times you'll
    be stuck in traffic, but there
    will also be lots of interesting
    things and interesting people
    along the way





    Take your time to really
    enjoy the experience




    There are many ways to improve
    your level of English, but only you
    can find the right way for you

    Improve your Learning Skills
    Learning is a skill and it can be improved
    Your path to Learning effectively is
    through knowing
    •yourself
    •your capacity to learn
    •processes you have successfully used in the past
    •your interest, and knowledge of what you wish to learn

    Motivate yourself




    If you are not motivated to learn
    English you will become
    frustrated and give up




    Ask yourself the following questions
    and be honest
    1.Why do you need to learn/improve English
    2.Where will you need to use English
    3.What skills do you need to learn/improve? Reading/Writing/Listening/Speaking
    4.How soon do you need to see results
    5.How much time can you afford to devote to learning English
    6.How much money can you afford to devote to learning English
    7.Do you have a plan or learning strategy




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Set yourself achievable goals



    You know how much time you can
    dedicate to learning English, but
    a short time each day will produce
    better, longer-term results
    than a full day on the weekend
    and then nothing for two weeks





    Joining a short intensive course
    could produce better results
    than joining a course that
    takes place once a week for
    six months




    Here are some goals you could set yourself
    1.Join an English course (and attend regularly)
    2.Do your homework
    3.Read a book a month
    4.Learn a new word every day
    5.Visit an English speaking forum every day
    6.Read a news article on the net every day
    7.Do 10 minutes listening practice every day
    8.Watch an English film at least once a month
    9.Follow a soap, comedy or radio or TV drama
    A good way to meet your goals is
    to establish a system of rewards
    and punishments



    Decide on a reward you will give
    yourself for fulfilling your
    goals for a month
    1.A bottle of your favorite drink
    2.A nice meal at home
    3......


    Understanding how you learn
    best may also help you




    There are different ways to learn
    Find out what kind of
    learner you are in order to better understand how to
    learn more effectively
    ..




    The visual learner




    Do you need to see your teacher
    during lessons in order to fully understand the content of a lesson



    Do you prefer to sit at the
    front of the classroom to
    avoid visual
    obstructions e.g. people's heads




    Do you think in pictures and learn
    best from visual displays
    including: diagrams, illustrated text books, overhead
    transparencies, videos, flipcharts
    and hand-outs




    During a lecture or classroom
    discussion, do you prefer to
    take detailed notes to absorb
    the information




    Learning Tip - you may benefit from
    taking part in traditional English
    lessons, but maybe private
    lessons would be better





    The auditory learner




    Do you learn best through
    verbal lectures, discussions, talking
    things through and listening
    to what others have to say



    Do you interpret the underlying
    meanings of speech through listening
    to tone of voice, pitch, speed and other nuances




    Does written information have
    little meaning until you hear it





    Learning Tip - you may benefit from
    listening to the radio or
    listening to text as you
    read it



    You could try reading text
    aloud and using a tape
    recorder to play it back to yourself






    The Tactile/Kinesthetic learner




    Do you learn best through
    a hands-on approach, actively
    exploring the physical world
    around you




    Do you find it hard to sit still for
    long periods



    Do you become distracted easily




    Learning Tip - you may benefit from
    taking an active part in role
    plays or drama activities
