Re: How to improve english language?

speak more, speak to those who are really good in english and ask them to correct you

reading more might help, i find that it does not help to majority of my friends

Re: How to improve english language?

You mean vocabulary?

Whatever the case, use English more often. Start online. Type in proper sentences with proper grammar and punctuation. Once you get more fluent, everything will be fine.

Read, read and read.

Read published books and newspapers.

Avoid speaking in bad English just because your friends and family do.

Re: How to improve english language?

If you want to look up grammar rules, you can use mla.org (Modern Language Association) and apa.org (American Psychological Association). Also, you may want to find it useful to purchase a book called the "Bedford Handbook," which teaches proper English speaking and writing. The Bedford Handbook is used to teach proper English in the U.S., though.. a lot of Americans also have poor English haha.

Re: How to improve english language?

As cliche as this sounds, practice makes perfect.

Read books, articles and if you have to, imitate how these writers go about writing their essays/texts. That's how I got started. After that, when you have comfortable grasp of grammar and vocabulary (personally, I'm not someone fond of reading up proper grammatical terms just to brush up the grammatical aspect of English but I'm someone that loves reading texts which are grammatically-certified affirmative), you can start practicing and writing out your own essays or your point of views for certain current affairs around the world.

If your wondering about the oral aspect of English, you might need to speak more and in time to come, you should be more fluent with it.

All the best.

Re: How to improve english language?

i remember last time got this cambridge guide thingy...maybe u can try find it

if u r worried about speaking part, i suppose u are worried for oral part...like most people say, u should practise speaking english with those who speak english more

find a time to cut the singlish and speak proper english for a lil' while...esp near your examination...aft u r done with english, can go back to speaking singlish with those u feel more comfortable communicating with

Re: How to improve english language?

Here are my suggestions:

1. To improve your grammar, you can refer to http://www.grammarbook.com/english_rules.asp . Do practise writing on some forums (or go to some American or British websites), read their writings or you can write on blogs. If you have a friend who is good in grammar, ask him to help correct your grammar for the writing.

Grammar also includes proper spelling, so do check up http://www.dictionary.com if you do not know how to spell.

2. To increase your vocabulary, read more English books, including novels, poetry or any subject. You can also read more English material on the internet. Use http://www.dictionary.com to check any new words for the meaning and spelling.

Reading the Straits Times Newspaper is a good way to improve your English.

3. To improve your speaking, you can practise English-speaking with people who speak more English. If you have an Angmo friend, it would be even be better.

4. To improve listening, you can listen to English programs on radio. I suggest you can refer to BBC 88.9 , which is standard British English.
