After reading a lot of articles and questions about how to improve English, I decided to share some tips that can help you improve your English in no time.
I know it's a drag because almost all students struggle with English. And to be more specific, we struggle with both Hindi and English, especially for CBSE board students.
I'll include all the elements that you need to know about your English and how important English is to you.
I am only sharing tips that I have used in my life to improve my English. And these are all totally practical. I still do these things daily.
So make sure to implement these tips. Otherwise, nothing is going to change.
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF ENGLISH IN STUDENT LIFE?
The answer to this is simple, as English is a world-wide accepted language because everything from computers to our basic smartphones depends on English.
Not only that, but English is quite easy to learn and speak. This is one of the reasons why English is so widely spoken throughout the world.
And in India, English is widely accepted. Almost every exam is conducted in English, and we use English as a primary language for our cell phones. Plus, all the jobs are mostly dependent on English.
Ways to improve English faster
I don't want to set you up with illusions. I don't want to lie to you either. Because I've seen people say they learn fluent English in just 30 days, after subscribing to our channel and all.
You must get this in your head. It's not possible to learn English in just 30 days or even 60 days.
The reason is simple: English has more words than your imagination, and these words have synonymous and antonyms.
So to learn all these synonymous and antonyms, you need time and patience. Just learning is not enough, you also need to master their use.
So be realistic and try to learn English in simple way.
Ways to learn English!
1. Listening; Listen to western music and audiobooks
The fastest way to learn any language is to listen to that language through different media. It's not buffing, it's completely practical.
So start listening to the songs of Ed Shereen, JB, or someone else.
2. READING; Read more books to improve your English
There is only one way to learn tenses and grammar rules: by reading. You need to read a lot of books or online content to improve your "English grammar".
Also, underline the words that are difficult to understand and search for their meanings. Repeat this daily.
This will help you build a strong vocabulary and increase your reading speed.
What do you need to read?
- Read newspaper daily.
- Read blogs.
- Read Magazines.
- Read Books that are helpful in your career.
You need to decide for yourself what you want to read because it's your choice. In my opinion, you should read anything that will help you with your future studies. Things that will be helpful in your career and for making progress in life. Because if you read content that is not relevant to you, you're just going to waste your time doing nothing else.
3. Writing; Write short notes and try to make short sentences.
Writing is vital. If you want to improve your English faster, daily writing is the best way to track your progress.
You don't have to write complicated things. Start with the basics. Keep a journal and write about your daily routine in English.
This will develop your habit of writing and enhance your command of English.
You need to be regular in this because regularity is the key to achieving fast results.
4. Practicing; Means speaking in front of others.
Practicing is essential for improving any skill that you want to develop.
Practice makes everyone perfect; not just men, lol.
What do you need to practice?
Whatever you're reading, you must summaries it and try to speak it out loud and repeat it daily. You don't need to do it in front of others; just try to be alone and speak to yourself in English.
This will improve your way of delivering words and, at the same time, the fluency of your English.
Many of us fail to speak English in front of people only because we never practice speaking English alone.
Practicing not only improves your English; it also allows you to develop a better grip on words and their use so that the right words can fall into your head when you're talking with someone.
You may be familiar with this dialogue.
The English in my head is way different from the English that I speak in real life.
It's only because we lack practice.
How to improve your vocabulary?
The most vital part of English is speaking and writing it with the right vocabulary. When it comes to building your vocabulary, it's the most difficult task.
The reason is simple: it's hard to remember all the words and their uses. Learning all the uses and remembering the correct synonyms, plus using them correctly, is a drag because it's impossible to learn all of them.
What do you need to do?
You don't have to burden yourself. Because things improve with time, you only need to learn some essential words and how to use those words correctly to make a meaningful sentence.
Then you can move to the second part, joining the sentences. For that, you only need a grammar book for class 6th or any other book that has all the basics that you need to improve your English.
So, stop focusing on learning too many words and just focus on learning essential words and learning to use them properly.
You need to follow these steps to add new words to your vocabulary.
- Mark the words from the book you are reading.
- Take note of those words.
- Try to find the meaning of these words and their synonyms as well.
- Repeat these words 2-3 times a day or according to your comfort.
- Do not write too many words.
- Only write a max of 20 words per day or as per your capacity.
Remember this: your brain is not good at words, it's good at images. So try to not force it. You need to be consistent instead of forcing your brain to learn more in a single day.
