Effective Tips to Improve Your English

English is one of the most important languages in the world. It can even be said o be the single most important language. Yes, other languages are important too, but not for the same reasons as English is important. Now, the question is, How can one improve his or her communication skills.
For anything you do in life, a clear goal, vision, adequate motivation, enthusiasm, hard work, discipline and the ability to take risks, challenges are critical attributes. However if you are seeking help in learning English what you require is the key attributes called ‘discipline’ and ‘enthusiasm’ with which you can achieve anything you want.
Your enthusiasm is the reason you came to this article. The next test is to be disciplined and follow the suggestions given here.

To Master the communicaiton, you need to learn the usage of English words. Learn the usages from a book namely PRACTICAL ENGLISH USAGE by MICHAEL SWAN published by OXFORD PRESS.

  • First suggestion is to read as much in English as possible. A standard daily English Newspaper and the English Magazines have very good reading material. This will help you gain knowledge on new words and improve your pronunciation.

If you have enough time, read novels and understand. If you don’t understand, read it again and again till you find the real meaning of what you are reading.

  • Make more English speaking friends and make a determined effort to speak only in English, even if you keep forgetting words, or tend to stammer or your friends tend to laugh at you. This will require a lot of will power but believe me you will soon improve.
  • Try to learn at least 3 -5 new words and look up the meaning in a dictionary. then try and use these words in your daily work and in your communication. Also Note new words you come across note then down find meaning try to use them remember them.
  • If you still feel that professional help is needed then you will have to attend English speaking classes
  • Read tongue Twisters – This would help you to your Mother Tongue Influence.
  • Stand before mirror and talk in English on any topic – This would remove your stage fear and your improve your fluency.
  • Overcome the inferiority complex that u are not good at English.
  • If u have any grammar books in your box keep them away for a year or at least till you are confident about your English.
  • Make mistakes boldly and courageously and without fear. But speak only in English.
  • Practice practice and practice
We face the problem of not being able to talk fluently in English due to one basic reason. That we think in our mother tongue and try to express the same in English. You need to practice and think in English to see good results.

Trick: if u are finding difficulty to speak with others in English, practice the same in your mobile on off line. No body will check with you that whether other side anybody is there.But before that mute your ring tone.

English is important because it is, maybe, the only language that truly links the whole world together. If not for English, the whole world may not be as united as it is today. The other languages may be important for their local values and culture.
I am sure these steps would help you a lot. ALL the best.
