EL.101 How can you improve your English in your own time? Read! Reading will help you to improve your reading skills, but also your vocabulary and grammar as well. But what should you read? And how much? Here are some tips to help you… 1) Join the KLC! There are lots of novels, magazines, newspapers, non-fiction and graded readers. Graded readers are books which have been made easier for English language learners. They’re often quite famous titles and are a good way to read literature classics. Also, there are often vocabulary and comprehension exercises at the back of these books. 2) Try reading short newspaper articles on the internet. This is a good site: http://www.ananova.com/ 3) Try to read at least one book a month. The Graded Readers are a great place to start. When you have finished the book, try and write a short summary of the story. Listen! Practicing listening will help you to improve your speaking skills as well as your vocabulary. If you hear someone say a word which you don’t understand, ask them what it means or try and remember it so you can look it up in a dictionary.
