Check out my interview on All Ears English on becoming fluent in English without leaving your home country

I recently took part in an interview for an ESL podcast site called All Ears English. In the interview we talk about ways to become fluent in English without leaving your home country. 


Main points we discuss are:

Read English: Spend as much time as possible doing this, whether it’s books, magazines or online articles. It’s great for your vocabulary and your grammar, and allows you to explore not only the language, but the culture.

Small vocabulary list: Try focusing more intensely on ten words instead of loosely on fifty words. Don’t just learn new words – learn to use them! You have to really know a word so you can use it.

Use online tools: Consider something like Anki. It’s a space repetition software that can tell how well you’re remembering vocabulary, and force you to revisit it.
