Elizabeth’s quick tips as you learn English:
- Read regularly. Texts can be in the form of a novel, encyclopaedia, newspaper, magazine. Reading exposes readers to a wide range of vocabulary and grammar and models excellent writing techniques. You also can learn alot about the world.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” (Dr Seuss)
2. Write regularly. Writing can be in the form of a journal, blog or creative writing (narratives, poetry). Writing allows you to practise writing skills learnt. It is also an invaluable opportunity to explore writing styles and express thoughts, opinions and ideas.
3. Speak regularly. Preparing for an upcoming oral presentation or speech in front of an audience can be daunting. Remember to practise regularly in front of family, friends, your mirror, your video camera. The more you practise, the more confident and more prepared and capable you will become! Get involved in activities in your life where public speaking occurs frequently or naturally. E.g. Join a debating team, lead a hobby group, share your reading or writing with others.
4. Listen regularly. Listen to audio books, TED Talks, educational YouTube clips, English apps, in particular, conversational apps.
5. Visit the library regularly. Libraries are fantastic resource hubs! You can read and borrow books etc. You can also join a library reading group. Libraries often run school holiday programs.
6. Play an English app. If you own an iPad or tablet, browse the Apple App. or Google Play Store. There are many educational apps. that can be used: grammar, spelling, conversation, etc. They are fun and educational, which are designed to support your learning of English.
