1- Practice every day
Make a schedule for studying, decide how many hours you want to study everyday and stick to it.
2- Get an outside encouragement
Discuss your schedule with family and friends and ask them to help you or at least encourage you.
3- Cover the 4 skills of english language
You have to practice reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Choose few words daily, use them in few sentences, write them and try to contribute them in your speech.
4- Work according to your time
You may like studying in the morning, afternoon or evening, so choose which you like.
After all, you must enjoy studying instead of considering it a daily punishment.
5- Plan to take a test
When you put in mind that you will do some kind of tests every month, you will work harder.
6- Keep the memorized words on your notebook
Keep all the words which you’ve learned before on a notebook to reread them in another time.
7- Think of a big picture.
Ask yourself what will change when you have a good command of English? Can learning english change your life?
Encourage yourself by having a long term goal and focusing on working to achieve it.
8-Study either alone or with a group
What do your prefer? Study alone in a quiet place or make a studying group.
9- Get help if needed.
It is not a problem if you get some help when you don’t understand something. You can simply ask your teacher, classmates or friends for help.
10- Determine some short term goal too.
It is so useful to give yourself short term goals and reward yourself for achieving each one.
11- Figure out how you learn
Start with the easiest way to learn, be gin by memorising, reading, speaking, summarising or other methods then move to the harder.
Every couple of sessions, take one session to review everything you have studied in the past.
13- Take a break
Plan to take a break every 30 minutes of study. You can go out for five minutes to eat a snack, get some fresh air and stretch your legs.
14- Concentrate and don’t rush
Concentrate on your level and move step by step.
15- Watch DVDs rather than TV
Watching something in English over and over(as on DVD) is much better that watching it once(as on TV). So, watch DVD to catch more information and discover new words.
16- Learn new words from their original forms
Whenever you learn a new word, begin with the original form then look for the adjective, adverb, noun… and try to use it with possible prefixes (dis-, un-, re-) and suffixes (-ly, -ment, -ful). This will help you learn more words and build your vocabulary.
17- Don’t translate from your own language into English
To improve yourself, you have to think and talk to yourself in English.
Sounds easy? Now, let’s start…
