How to Improve English
Keep a notebook
As you go about your day, there s bound to be some English words that you run into that you don t fully understand. This is when you whip out your handy dandy notebook! Scribble down the word and then when you go home, you can look it up. Instead of thinking, Gosh, what was that word I saw on the menu at the cafe? you ll flip right to the page and learn a new word.
If that s a little 2003 for you, just whip out your smartphone. Start a note (or whatever app you want to use) that s dedicated to new English words. Then every so often you can refer back to it and make sure you remember them all.
