23 May 11
I was also thinking about that, it is said that firstly listen to the VOA special english, when u can understand all what it is talking about ,you can then listen to the VOA regular english, wish we can all success. But anyway, I think it is more useful to make friends with english native people .

You have not told from which place are you posting this msg. You can learn english well by adopting following: 1) Read newspaper on the internet or in hard copy form 2) think before talking in english and then communicate 3) Develop contact with people who can communicate well in English and utilise every opportunity to talk in English. 4) Allow your well wishers to correct your english whenever you commit mistakes 5) Practice writing on simple topics like-- My family, my likes, my dislikes, my company, my school etc.

hi there.. welcome to mylot! i suggest, like the others did, READ english articles, LISTEN to english radio progams, WATCH english films...use the technology, you'll learn a lot from YOUTUBE! and if you have chance, take some "accent reduction" classes..also, learn how to use the dictionary(observe proper pronunciation)--i suggest you use the "merriam" dictionary! on top of all, the best you can do is PRACTICE! good luck..

in my opinion, do sth you like and you will learn it best. This might sound contradictory sometimes, like if you dont really like english then you can learn it. no, not in that sense anyway. For example, when you pick a book to read, dont just read aimlessly or just for the sake of reading. Read, instead sth you find interest in, it could be a short story or an article online, anything that makes you curious, a recipe book even. The idea is to do something you can find joy in doing. This way of learning will make learning fun and productive. Another way is to imitate by watching tv or listening to the radio. It helps, you in pronunciation and tones. Its also good to communicate with friends or strangers in English. Make sure they they understand you though. Make friends with people who could speak well and learn from them. Never be shy about learning.

Hi xiangwan! I am not a good English speaker myself but fortunately I was able to learn it my own way. I suggest you have to read some basic grammar books by learning the correct usage of a particular figure of speech etc, that way you can build an effective foundation of your English skills, you can also read books that interests you and watch T.v shows that uses all-English language just like BBC,ESPN,Star Movies etc. Some people are learning from tutorial lessons but I think it's a costly way. Participating in social networks like myLot also helps. Happy myLotting! Good Luck..

Learning english very well takes time and effort. First you must have the willingness and determination and as well as perseverance to learn. Second, reading english books can really help in enhancing your vocabulary. If you found hifalutin words, immediately consult your dictionary and lists the words in a sheet of paper for your reference whenever you encounter it the next time. Then, be familiar with the subject and verb agreement.
