Hi there!

 How are you today? i hope you have a nice day and i just want to share tips and secrets to improve english… if you are really like to improve your english? feel free to contact me at any time at ...

here you go for one of my secrets to improve your english…

LISTEN! LISTEN! AND LISTEN!

Students sometimes say: 'I don't listen to the BBC news
on the radio because it's too fast for me and I can't
understand it.' That's a pity! When it's too fast for
you, when you can't understand it, that is exactly when
you NEED to listen to it!!!

How can you improve if you don't listen and practise?

When you were a baby, did you understand your own
language? When you were 3 weeks old, or 2 months, or 1
year, did you understand everything? Of course not! But
you learned to understand by listening. Think about
it. You learned to understand your own language by
listening, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. After that,
you learned to speak. Then you learned to read. And then
you learned to write.

But listening came first!

GOOD LUCK TO YOU

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND HAVE A NICE DAY

I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU

Hi There its me again!

One of my friends asked my help to improve vocabulary power so that here i would like my help with you friends too…

A simple way to improve our vocabulary is to use the dictionary. Create flash cards of unfamiliar words and practice them in the train, on the bus, or when we wake up in the morning. Try to practice words in a variety of environments so that we really learn them, and make sure to use the words in daily sentences as well so that we can grow accustomed to using them correctly. If we hear someone using a word we don’t recognize, look it up!

Good luck to us…

yes you’re right we have to listen and listen, but personally i have a problem since when i’m listening to native speakers i understand programmes that based on academic english, but when it comes to movies i find it difficult to understand. there is also a problem concerns listening to native speakers, that’s, you may understand some people while you won’t understand otheres!!!!!!!!!! it’s really confusing.
waiting for ur comments

Well, we always say that we don’t understand native speakers, they are too fast and so on… and I can't understand it.' What a shame! When it's too fast for you, when you can't understand it, that is exactly when you NEED to listen to it!!! I have already posted this help.

 

Here I am telling you guys again when you were a baby, did you understand what was you mamma talking about? language? When you were one year old year, did you understand everything? Of course not! But you learned to understand by listening your mamma ya? Remember that, we learned to understand our own language by
listening, weeks, months, and years After that, we learned to speak our own language Think about that age… we are like that baby… if you trust on me don’t worry if you don’t understand keep listening…day after day you will come to know what is it exactly.

 

I can write you a lot but time is up here and I have to leave my office…

 

Good luck to us and I wish you a nice time…

 

Thanks for asking my help…

 Ilyas.
