Hi, you have done a nice course and why are you still working here as a sales assistant, what will happen to your career? why dont you search for a job related to your career in a nearby city of yours or just try seriously to find out one job in your own city. I think if you really try it seriously you can be successful. are you satisfied with this current job and its pay? if you are really satisfied and if you think that you can improve your career in a different industry you can very well stay here and continue this job, else , better find one which is suitable for you and your career. Don't spoil your career, look for a job which requires you to speak lots of english so that you can improve your language by so doing. All the best.

That my problem before so I ask other how can I improve in english. Simple read always english article, loudly but not shouting. Then always talk in english language. After a month I'm sure there a big difference. Just try my advice. Don't mind other people if they can hear you talking in english.

Trying to learn as much English vocabulary as you can, will certainly improve your grasp on the language. I did that by watching the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS, ever since he moved his show to New York in 1993. So with a show like that, you learn not only major amounts of vocabulary, but how the words go together, how to pronounce them. Just taking English courses (learning grammar, syntax, etc.) is not enough in my opinion, the brain needs more food than that, hence the vocabulary.

Hello mari. You know, you can mylot a lot so long as you like if you do not have much to do. This is really a good way for you to improve your English. Also if you wish to work in a company dealing with foreign business, why not choose to find a job somewhere along the coastal areas of the country instead of working inland? Give it a try and you will find yourself a success, buddy. Good luck to you.
