Improving Language Skills Are there any mistakes in this paragraph? There are different ways to improve one's language skills. To begin with, we should repeat things over and over. This will help us memorize everything we need and retain it for a long time. We also have to listen to other students speaking and try to notice their mistakes. It will help us to avoid their errors and, more importantly, to realize that we make the same mistakes too. Reading literature in other languages also improve our language skills. There are hundreds of interesting books in English, German, French and Spanish available in the library. Reading various books will hone both our reading skills and vocabulary. In addition, watching movies in the language you want to learn is a great idea as well. There is no doubt that our listening skills will improve. To sum up, there are thousands of ways to improve our language skills. Everything is possible because of computers and other modern technologies these days.

line 5: improveS line 9: probably should be 'will then' - to make it conditional on learning, rather than absolute. The last sentence is quite awkward, and somewhat 'out of place'. You have been talking about conversation, and libraries, and suddenly introduce technology in the last sentence, when I would normally expect a summary, like you have already done in the sentence previous. I think it should go earlier in the paragraph. Apart from that - very natural, and easy to read.

In what context are you writing this for? It all sounds good except fot the last sentence I would use the word "anything" instead of "everything." It sounds more natural that way. :)
