Things you can do to improve your English language skills: - Write sentences and essays which include new interesting vocabulary. This can help you improve both your speaking and wrting skills. It also helps you remember the new words that you acquire. - Read as much as possible from a different variety of authentic reading materials (books, newspapers, magazines,etc). - Use a good English dictionary that can clearly define words, provide information about grammar and give sample sentences to show how words are used in context. You can use the following books to extend and practice your vocabulary: - Collins Picture Dictionary for young learners (Andrew Wright) - Vocabulary Building 1-2-3-4 (vocabulary building workbook series by Betty Kirkpatrick MA) - Test Your Vocabulary 1-2-3-4-5 (a series of vocabulary practice books by Peter Watcyn-Jones) - Basic English usage (Michael Swan) - English Vocabulary in Use (Michael McCarthy & Felicity O'Dell)
