How to improve your English - part 2

6. Watching DVDs rather than TV is much better as a learning resource for a lower-level learner of English. DVD has a replay and subtitle function to allow you to catch any information you might have missed the first time.

7. For advanced learners, however, watching TV is more demanding as it only gives such students one chance to hear something correctly. This is particularly useful as it provides great practice for speaking to native English speakers so that you don't need to ask them to repeat themselves.

8. Try reading graded readers to increase your word power and structure awareness. Feel a sense of achievement when you turn the last page!

9. If you can't get a hold of graded readers, try children's books! Although the grammar and vocabulary are easier, such books provide a good alternative to the graded reader.

10. If you are studying a particular grammatical concept (e.g. the passive voice), search newspapers to see if you can recognise it and the context in which it is used.
