Don't study English just to pass an exam. Instead, think of all the benefits that the knowledge of this language can give you, how it can improve your life: finding a better job, moving abroad, travelling without problems, having international friends and much more!
Studying word lists doesn't help you remember those words in the long term. It's better to try to learn them by remembering examples or phrases in which those words are used.
Visit www.weloveteachingenglish.com once a day and read at least one of our free lessons! Doing a little every day will help you improve your English effortlessly.
Learn prefixes (such as dis- un- re-) and suffixes (such as -ly -ment -ful). They will help you understand the meaning of many words and they will enrich your vocabulary.
When you read in English, try to understand the general meaning of the text first. Only later, start again and stop to look for the meaning of all the words you don't know.
Tell your family and friends that you are working to improve your English. Ask them to help you achieve your goal: you could study together, watch a film in English or organise to travel to English-speaking countries together!
Immerse yourself in an environment that is as English as possible. You can't travel? Hang out with people from other countries, join an association of language lovers, watch films in English, listen to British or American radio stations. The more English around you, the better! And to practise conversation, contact one of our teachers.
Read in English, read a lot, read every time you can! The lyrics of your favourite songs, news articles, fairytales or recipes, whatever you fancy! Reading helps you learn new words and remember the grammar.
