Here are 101 things (in no particular order) you can do to improve your English

  1. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Be confident. People can only correct your mistakes when they hear you make them.
  2. Surround yourself in English. Put yourself in an all English speaking environment where you can learn passively. The best way to learn is through speaking.
  3. Practise every day. Make yourself a study plan. Decide how much time a week you are going to spend studying and stick to it. Establish a routine.
  4. Tell your family and friends about your study plan. Get them to push you to study and also don’t let them interrupt you.
  5. Practise the 4 core skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. They all need to be worked on for you to improve.
  6. Keep a notebook of new words you learn. Use them in sentences and try to say them at least 3 times when you speak.
  7. Visit EC’s free learn English website at least once a day and complete a lesson.
  8. Memorisation of lists is one of the most common ways of learning vocabulary for a test. It’s only a good exercise for short term studying because you often do not retain the information that you have learned for a test.
  9. Use your body clock. If you’re not a morning person, study in the afternoon.
  10. You will find words easier to remember if you try to remember an example sentence using that word rather the word on its own.
  11. Plan to take a test. You’ll find that you work harder when you need to study for something.
  12. Saying that, it’s better not to study just to take a test. Think of the bigger picture. What can you do when you have a good command of English? How will the quality of your life improve?
  13. Give yourself a long term goal. Focus on working towards it.
  14. Give yourself short term goals too and reward yourself when you achieve each one.
  15. Create an atmosphere in which you want to learn, not because you have to. You’ll learn more when you’re learning because you want to.
  16. Know what works best for you. Think about what methods have been successful for you in the past and stick with them.
  17. Figure out how you learn. It can be by memorising, reading, speaking, summarising or other methods. Find out how you study best. It can be in a quiet place by yourself or with a group.
  18. Get help! If you don’t understand something you’ve got to ask someone. Ask your teacher, classmates or friends for help.
  19. Review! Review! Review! Make sure that you take the time to review things you have studied in the past.
  20. It’s not a good idea to study on your own for more than 30 minutes at a time. Take regular breaks, get some fresh air and stretch your legs.
  21. Don’t be in such a hurry to move up a level. Concentrate on the level you are at now.
  22. Watch DVDs rather than TV. It’s better to use something that you can watch over again to catch information you might have missed the first time.
  23. Watching TV only gives you the chance to hear something correctly first time. This is better for high level students. It can be great practice for speaking to native English speakers so you don’t have to ask them to repeat themselves!
  24. Read graded readers. These books are especially written for your level. Read a whole novel. You can do it! You’ll feel great afterwards.
  25. Children’s books have easier words and are a good alternative to graded readers.
  26. Newspapers are a good place to find passive constructs. Read through an article and see if you can find the passive sentences.
  27. Read for the general meaning first. Don’t worry about understanding every word, then go back and look up new words.
  28. For a word you don’t understand in a sentence, look at the other words around it. They will give you a hint. Try to guess the meaning from the context.
  29. Learn root words. They’ll help you guess the meaning of words. For example: scrib = write, min = small
  30. When you learn a new word, think of all its other forms: Beautiful (adjective), beauty (noun), beautifully (adverb).
  31. Learn prefixes (dis-, un-, re-) and suffixes (-ly, -ment, -ful), these will help you to figure out the meaning of words and build your vocabulary.
  32. English, unlike Japanese or French, uses word stress. For new words, count the syllables and find where the stress is. Only one stress per word and always on a vowel. Two syllable verbs have a stress on the second syllable (beGIN). 2 syllable nouns (TEAcher) and adjectives (HAPpy) stress the first.
  33. Use English whenever you can. It’s as simple as that!
  34. Don’t translate into English from your own language. Think in English to improve your fluency. Talk to yourself…but not on the bus otherwise people will think you have gone crazy!
  35. You can’t learn English from a book. Like driving a car, you can only learn through doing it.
  36. The most natural way to learn grammar is through talking.
  37. Keep an English diary or journal. Start by writing a few sentences a day and then get into the habit of writing more.
  38. Why not start an online blog and share your writings with the world?
  39. To become a better writer brainstorm as many ideas and thoughts onto paper without worrying about grammar or spelling. Then think about the structure. After that, write your piece using good grammar and spelling. Finally, read it through or give it to someone else to check for mistakes.
  40. Keep an eye on your punctuation as it can totally change what you’re trying to say. Check out the difference in meaning between these two sentences: “A woman without her man is nothing” and “A woman: without her, man is nothing”.
  41. Sing your heart out! Show the world your beautiful voice! Learn English songs and sing along with them to improve fluency and intonation… anyone for Karaoke?
  42. Get a penfriend or use chat-rooms, forums and community sites. If you can’t speak to someone in English, this is the next best thing.
  43. Shadow English CDs. Listen to a few sentences then repeat what you heard. Focus on the rhythm and intonation.
  44. Have English radio on in your house. Even if you are not actively listening to it, you will still be training your ears.
  45. Mirror CDs. Read out loud along with a CD. Again, this is great for intonation, pronunciation and rhythm.
  46. Dictation. Listen to a CD or friend and write down what you hear.
  47. Nobody likes to hear their own voice, but be brave and try it! Record your voice and listen to your pronunciation and intonation. It will help you to identify your problem areas.
  48. Ask your helpful teacher if you can record his lesson. This is a great way to review. You can also listen to your teachers speaking speed and intonation.
  49. Use an English/English dictionary as it will help you to keep thinking in English and not translating.
  50. If an English/English dictionary seems scary, there are learner’s dictionaries for English students of your level.
  51. Don’t become too reliant on your dictionary. Your dictionary should be an aid, not your main teacher. Try to guess the meaning of words rather than going straight for your dictionary.
  52. Don’t give up! Stay positive! Sometimes you will feel that you aren’t learning quickly enough. Everyone feels like this, don’t worry about it. You’ll get there in the end.
  53. Enjoy it! We learn more when we are having fun!
  54. If you get nervous when speaking, take two deep breaths before you say something. You’ll speak better when you feel relaxed.
  55. Keep yourself motivated by looking back at the textbooks and CDs you used in the past. You’ll be surprised at how easy they seem to you now! Congratulations, your level is improving!
  56. You are never too young or too old to start learning English. Don’t make excuses not to learn. What are you waiting for?
  57. Procrastination can stop you from being successful. To stop procrastinating, it’s important you understand if your procrastinating is to avoid studying, or if it is your bad habit.
  58. If you haven’t gotten the results you wanted yet, it’s not because you’re bad at languages, it’s because you haven’t found your own special way of learning yet.
  59. Use resources which match your level. Don’t use texts/listening exercises which are too difficult or too easy. Use materials which challenge you but don’t frustrate you.
  60. Don’t worry about making your accent perfect. It’s an important part of your cultural identity to keep your accent. Native English speakers enjoy hearing English spoken with an accent.
  61. There are many types of English: British, American, South African and so on. None of these are wrong or not as important. English is English.
  62. Instead, be aware of the differences in American and British English and use your words accordingly. For example: Elevator (US) / Lift (British).
  63. Carry cue cards with you. These are small cards which you can write new words on. You can pull them out and look at them whenever you a free minute.
  64. Use post-it notes and stick them around your home. You can use them to label things. Stick one on your pet dog!
  65. You can’t ignore phrasal verbs (two words verbs), there are hundreds of them in English and they’re widely used. The more you focus on their meaning, the more you’ll be able to guess the meaning of new ones. You’ll start to recognise their patterns.
  66. Use your intuition. Go with your gut feeling, you’ll be surprised how often your first guess is the right guess. Like we said before, be confident.
  67. Gather your thoughts. Take a second to think about what you’re going to say. You know the grammar, but maybe you don’t use it correctly when you speak.
  68. Meet new people. Make the effort to mix with English speakers in your town. You could join a club or go to bars where foreigners hang out. Buy one a drink, they love that!
  69. Be the person to start conversations in English. Try to keep the conversations moving and use listening words (‘really?’ / ‘go on…’/ ‘what happened then?’) Don’t wait for others to speak to you. Get in there!
  70. Debate. Discuss topics in a group. Each person should choose a viewpoint (even if you don’t agree with it) and debate it within the group. Make sure you get your point across. Learn to listen actively. Active listening will help in the classroom and it will help you get more out of, and contribute more to, group study sessions. Focus on the person who is talking. Don’t fidget or become distracted by other people or events. Concentrate on the speaker with your ears and eyes. Follow the movements the speaker makes in an effort to hear more. It may help to repeat what you hear others say in an effort to understand their thoughts.
  71. It’s not enough to only learn English words. You can teach a parrot English words but that doesn’t mean it can speak English! You still need to have an understanding of grammar.
  72. Verb tenses are used by English speakers to talk about the timing of actions. You might not have the same expressions in your own language. It’s important that you know these tenses and when to use them.
  73. English has many irregular verbs. You should drill yourself on them.
  74. Keep it up! If you take a break from speaking English, you will find that your level decreases and all your hard work has been wasted.
  75. Don’t be put off by a bad test score. Sometimes students have the ability to pass an English test, but can’t communicate well with English speakers. If you can speak freely in English, you should be proud of yourself.
  76. Remember that as long as you have tried your hardest, you have succeeded!
  77. Learn English with a friend. You’ll have someone you can practise with and you can motivate each other to study.
  78. Remember, the way we write English is not the same as how it’s pronounced. For example ‘Ough’ has over 6 pronunciations. Familiarise yourself the Phonetic Alphabet. It will help you correctly pronounce words in the dictionary.
  79. Get used to the ‘schwa’ sound [ə] – an unstressed and toneless neutral vowel sound. ‘Schwa’ is the most common vowel sound in English. For example, the ‘a’ in about and the ‘u’ in supply.
  80. Keep in mind that it takes longer to improve when our level is high. Usually the fastest progress is made when we are beginners. Don’t think that you’re suddenly not learning anymore, it’s just a less noticeable progress.
  81. Make sure that your English matches the occasion. It’s OK to use slang with friends but not in a business meeting. Decide in which situation it’s appropriate to use the words and phrases you have learned.
  82. Textbook English is often different from the way we casually speak. To learn casual ‘slang’ watch movies.
  83. Idioms can be difficult to memorise, but they are great fun to use and they’ll make your English more colourful.
  84. When talking we usually link words together so that two words can sound like one. Simply put, we link words ending with a consonant sound to words beginning with a vowel sound (consonant > vowel). We link words ending with a vowel sound to words beginning with a vowel sound (vowel > vowel). Practise these to improve your listening and pronunciation.
  85. Make use of the internet. It’s full of resources to help you learn: BBC Learning English ; learnenglish.ecenglish.com
  86. Think about your strong and weak points. Write down which areas you want to improve on and work on improving them. Of course, don’t ignore your strong points. Congratulate yourself on how well you’ve done!
  87. Unlearn your mistakes. You probably make the same grammar mistakes over and over again. Use English tests results as a study tool. Go over your mistakes and choose one or two that you want to focus on. Use your favourite grammar book to check rules.
  88. Use the correct article (a/an, the). Be aware that there is more to this rule than a/an= non specific, the=specific. For example: A university (not an university because it begins with a consonant sound). An hour (not a hour because the ‘h’ is often silent).
  89. For fluency, try image training. Before you go to that restaurant think through what the waiter is likely to say to you. Think of what phrases you are going to use.
  90. Much communication comes through body language and gesture. These can be different between cultures and countries. For example, the two-fingered “V” for victory symbol is fine palms-out. If you make it with you palm facing toward you, you’ll offend a British person. It means…well, you ask a British person and find out for yourself!
  91. The easiest one – Sleep! You’ll learn more after a good night’s sleep. You’ll be able to concentrate more.
  92. Take an English course in an English speaking country.
  93. If you studying abroad, mix with people from other countries not only people from your own country. It’s not a good idea for you to live in a shared house with people from your own country. Enjoy a more cultural experience by spending time with other nationalities.
  94. Have you thought about getting a job or doing an internship abroad?
  95. Get yourself a qualified teacher. Who wants to learn wrong things?
  96. Nobody can learn all of the English language. No need to worry about trying. A useful shortcut to learning is that in English we have lots of words that have the same pronunciation, but a different spelling and meaning. For example, ‘come here’ has the same pronunciation as, ‘I can hear the birds’. You might find it easier to build vocabulary by knowing the different meanings.
  97. Once you have a basic level of English explore the different ways you can say the same thing. This makes your English more interesting to the listener and it shouldn’t be too difficult for you because you already know the basics. For example, how many ways can we say, ‘Goodbye’ in English?
  98. When you are on your English course, be prepared for your class. Do your homework as soon as possible and hand it in on time. Review your notes and your last lesson a few minutes before the class. Doing this will refresh your memory and you’ll be warmed up for lesson.
  99. Don’t get distracted in class. Focus on the lesson, don’t stare out of the window. Don’t be late, arrive a few minutes before the start of the lesson. Don’t sit next to people who won’t speak to you in English. Switch off your phone. Be organised, remember to take your textbook, notebook and pen.
  100. Find a comfortable, peaceful place for quiet study. You need somewhere where you can focus 100%.
  101. Last but not least, learn English with EC!

2 fun new ways to learn English vocabulary


Learning a new language is difficult and boring. Every student learns differently, and it’s important to find a study method that is right for YOU. I want to put the fun back into studying English with two methods that are fun and which make learning easier and quicker! In this lesson, I will teach you how to make connections between words in order to remember them more easily. I will also reveal my hidden poet talents, so you don’t want to miss this one!
http://www.engvid.com/2-fun-new-ways-…

TRANSCRIPT

Yeah, that was fun. I’m looking forward to hearing that from you later. Hi. James from engVid. In this video what I would like to do is help you work on vocabulary. I want to make it fun, because when things are fun, you work harder and you learn more. And today’s lesson, I’m going to teach you two ways to not only just remember vocabulary, but learn how to use vocabulary in a way that we use it, and you will really understand it, and… Heck, it’s fun. You’re just going to have fun doing it. I’m sure you will. All right? It’s a little bit creative. So, let’s go to the board. Simple lesson. Here we go.

Two ways to have fun with language. Not just language, but vocabulary. Ways that you may not be studying in class, we’re going to do here today. The first one I want to talk to you about is fill in the gap. Huh? “A gap” means a space, there’s a space between something. So, here’s my hands, in between my hands is a gap. Okay? You have a gap between your eyes. One eye, one eye, space. In this case, you see I’ve got this: “tree __________ chair”. Now, fill in the gap doesn’t mean just one word. It’s a couple of ways you can do this. In this particular game, we’re going to take two vocabulary words, “tree”, and take another one, “chair”, and they’re kind of a little obvious to make it easy for you, but what I want you to do is one of two things.

The first thing we can do is use x words. What I mean by that is you could say: “I want to use five words, and I want to go from ‘tree’ to ‘chair’.” Or: “I want to use three words from ‘tree’ to ‘chair'” or two. Huh? Well, okay. How do I get from “tree”? Okay. “Tree”, “cut”. You cut the tree down, right? “Lumber”. Lumber you make into wood you can use. Let’s see. “Carpenter”. Find a carpenter. “Craft”. “Craft” means make. You’re like: “What?” These… All these words… And then I can say: “Furniture”. Okay? Okay, furniture. “Chair”, so if I have a tree, I cut it down and make it into lumber, I take it to a carpenter, he crafts it into a chair. Five words from A to B. So, one game is tell yourself: “I want to go from five… One word to another word, and I want five words to get there.”

And you can challenge yourself; maybe go from three words. Right? Or make 10 words. You can use it to describe something. How many words you can use to describe a certain thing. Right? “I have this word, and I want to go to this word. How many words does it take me to get there?” What this does is it teaches you relationship between words, and that also can teach you nouns and verbs, and how they function together. Or, we say “syntax”, right? So, start at A, say: “I want to use five words to get there.” This is a great word to do with a friend. You can say: “Okay, we’re going to do ‘tree’ and ‘chair’, you need to do five words that make sense to go from ‘tree’ to ‘chair'”, and put a clock on for five minutes. You go, and she goes, you write together and see what words you get. Compare, check them out. “Why did you choose this, and why does this word…? What does this word mean?” Right? So, now, you’re not just writing words in a book and saying: “This word means this.” You’re: “What does it mean? How do I use it? How would other people use it? How would other people think?” Right? Yeah. See? That’s fun by yourself or with a friend.

Okay, listen, the second way to play this game is: How many words to the answer? What? Well, we can pick up two random words, two, like… I have “chair”… “Tree” and “chair”, we could have put “chair” and “moon”. Now the game gets a little bit more interesting. Right? “Chair” and “moon”. How many words does it get me to go from “chair” to “moon”? Now, you might say: “That’s impossible. They have nothing to do with each other.” I could say, “Listen, the chair in my living room”-“living room” is a noun-“sits”-which is a verb-“close to the big bay window where I can see the moon at night.” How many words did it take me to get from “chair” to “moon”? So, it’s playing with words, being creative.

Learn English: 3 easy ways to get better at speaking English


There are easy ways to learn English, and here are 3 methods NOT taught in language schools or textbooks. These methods are fun, fast, and easy to learn! You will learn how to make studying English easier, and learn how to spend less time studying. Take this lesson and learn the secrets to getting better in English right now.

“The Prosperity Plan.” It’s empty. Why? Well, hi. James, from EngVid. I have a book, and it says “Prosperity Plan”. I know you’re here to learn English. This is a book full of secrets on how to make millions of dollars. Empty. That’s because when people tell you there’s a secret, there’s not really a secret; there’s a method behind something, and you may not know it, so to you it’s a secret, but you know, just like that book, there are no secrets. The only one is hard work. Let’s look at the three methods I have for you today in order to learn English, okay? Call them the “Secrets you need to know” because most people don’t know them because the funny thing is, although they’re not secret — I said it again — they’re not methods that are usually taught in ESL books.

The Kaizen Method, the Process Method, and the Writing Method are actually books I read on something completely different. But what I found was they were very, very handy for learning English. Personally, I’m trying to learn Spanish, and when I apply these different methods, I found my learning going faster and faster, and I actually enjoyed it. So I called them “secret” for you because I’m quite sure that your teachers haven’t sat down and gone, “Today, we’re going to learn the Kaizen Method of English. Then, we’ll do the Process Method, and then we’ll do the Writing Method.” No. Because they’re actually three different books, all right? So I’m just going to give you a part of each book, and if I come across to the end, I’ll give you another lesson on it, all right? But these are three things I liked out of these books.

All right. Let’s start from the first one, the Process Method. I know — and it’s in red, and I start here why? Most of the times people are learning a language, they want to — and this is what the Process Method is about. People start with “product”, “product”. What is a “product”? A “product” is something you can touch or hold. This marker is a product. But this isn’t how the marker started. I’m sorry. Okay, the marker started a little differently. I mean, that’s an alcohol base that I’m sniffing. When I go [inhales], there’s liquid in here. This is plastic — came from oil. So why I’m telling you all these things — you’re going, “Why are you telling me?” Well, things start in a certain way, but they end up like this. In fact, you can think of the Process Method versus product as being a tree and being a seed. And a seed, you know, little thing, you put it in the ground, and it grows into a tree. Well, when you have a seed, the seed has no idea that it’s going to be a tree and a big tree — how long it will take. But humans are funny. They want to start a language, and they think right away, “I’m going to learn English.” And then, they sit down; they open the book; they open the book; “I’m going to learn English. I’m learning English. I’m learning English.” And then they get upset one hour later. “I don’t know any English. I don’t speak English.” Well, it’s like being a human. You start as a baby, you grow to an adult. When we talk about the Process Method, what you want to do is don’t think about you want to speak English. Yes, I know. That’s why you’re watching this video and why you’re studying. Think more about what you’re doing while you’re studying English. And this is called the “process”. Go into the step. Concentrate on what you’re doing. You’ll find a couple of things happen: Sometimes you’ll say English is hard or it’s boring. If you do this method, you’ll actually stop finding it hard or boring, and you’ll enjoy it because you’ll be working on something specific, mastering that, and then you’re going to start noticing that the final product — English — is coming to you.

And it will come faster than you think. Why? Well, if you’re thinking, “I don’t understand this English”, you’re focusing, really, on you don’t understand English or you don’t know English. You’re not focusing on what you’re doing. If you take a breath [inhales] and go [exhales], “Okay. I’m just watching this video of this crazy guy who speaks very quickly in English, and just now, he told me to take a breath. Oh, okay. I understand.” And you’re ahead. That’s the Process Method. Take time to actually go back — when you’re thinking about it’s hard; it’s difficult or boring — and say to yourself, “What am I doing now?” And then look at that. Each time you do that, you get further in the process and you will end up with a product before you know it. Okay? Sounds simple, but try it. You can even do this on a date. That’s another story.

Early-Learning-InitiativesEnglish is the global language now due to outsourcing. India has gotten 1st position in outsourcing due to English language.

How Senior Citizens can Save Energy?

Senior citizens, oldies, pensioners, retirees and elders – they might be different persons but they all share a common dilemma – a limited income.  When you reach the old age, you have to leave your job hence no source of money and not everybody is lucky enough to have kids who can support them for their remaining time. With that, the money you have amassed over the years is your only salvager. And just like any others’ money, they run out so fast so saving and spending wisely is the key.

As a senior citizen, staying at home is the usual set-up and due to that, home utility bills start to outgrow but there are ways to save from all these sky-high utility bills. Help our beloved senior citizens and share these amazing tips on how to save from energy at home.

  1. When staying most of the time at home, change the lights at home to LED or to energy-saving bulbs since the energy consumption of these stuff is way lesser and cheaper compared to the ordinary ones. If they have thick curtains at home then clear them out during daytime to maximize the light coming from the sun, hence no need to open lights anymore.
  2. Unplug any unused appliances. Even if they are turned off but they are still plugged into an electric power source, they still consume energy that adds up as the time passes by. It will be better if all the plugs and power sources will be on an average level and always at reach so our elders shouldn’t have to exert too much effort on plugging cords out.
  3. Make sure that the heating and air conditioning system are all working well. Clean the filters of your heating system regularly to keep the machine working generously good instead of consuming a lot of energy and getting a little amount of comfortable air. Also, dirty air coming from these home dehumidifiers can cause certain illnesses especially with the weakened immune system of senior citizens. Call your favorite and trusted air conditioning repair for vegas immediately if any malfunction is observed.
  4. When heating food, better to use a microwave or a toaster for small portions since their energy consumption is way lesser than ovens and electric stoves.

These are just some of the tips on how we can help our senior citizens save energy and save money from paying too much. Share the word and let us all unite to keep their lives much looser and more gratified. When we all get old like what they do, we’ll understand how much a little savings can mean much.

AC repair carried out by an honest ac and heating Repair Co

If you’d like to switch your AC system rather than do AC repairs,you should do your research on the different manufacturers available. There are numerous different brand names and while an air conditioner is an air conditioner there are huge differences in price and dependability, but just because a brand is even more costly does not mean that it is better. Speak with a seasoned A / c Repair Company and see what they recommend. You also should check out the makes on the web. Consumer reports does a yearly report on the best AC units to buy. Some of the brands you can take a look at are Ameristar, Amana, York, American Standard, Trane, Bryant, Rheem, Comfortmaker, and Goodman.

How Senior Citizens can Save Energy?One of the things you could potentially not fully understand is if your a / c unit still is covered under manufacturers warrantee, and you allow anybody but a certified company work on your unit it will probably void the warrantee. And let’s face it if they discover a reason to certainly not recognize a warrantee the brand manufacturers typically will certainly. Also using an unlicensed Heating and AC technician means that you have no legal recourse if they don’t do the job correct, or if perhaps they cause even more deterioration of the AC unit.

When choosing what Heating and AC Repair Company you want to hand over with your comfort, there are a few things that you need to take into account, what is the critical reviews on Yelp, check out all of the testimonials bad and good, and always do your required groundwork on ensuring that an Air conditioning and heating repair company is licensed and bonded.

When faced with Air conditioning and heating repair, you should already have an honest Heat and AC Repair Company which you can use. Before you should have any AC repairs undertaken, do your homework on the AC companies locally. Check their reviews on line, consult with your neighbors, relatives and buddies, someone has used a good A / c Repair Company at one time or another.
