The best way to improve your English is to practice reading and writing everyday.
You might think that reading and writing are pretty easy and don’t require much practice. But if you want to read well, you need to focus on reading well and not just on grammar.
So what are these 7 steps to reading better in English?
STEP 1: Read Often and Often
Reading is the most important skill you can develop in English. If you want to read well, you have to read often and often.
It doesn’t matter how many books you’ve read, the more you read the better you’ll be at reading. The reason for this is simple. Reading improves your vocabulary and helps you understand new concepts.
In addition to reading, I recommend spending 5-10 minutes a day writing. This helps you develop a habit of writing and will make it easier for you to improve your grammar.
STEP 2: Read Books and Periodicals
There are many great English language books out there. The best way to improve your English is by reading as many different books as possible.
Read everything from fiction to non-fiction, from business books to novels, from self-help books to technical manuals.
The more books you read, the more topics you’ll be able to understand.
STEP 3: Read Short Stories and Novels
Short stories are perfect for improving your reading skills because they force you to focus on the details of the story. You’ll also learn more about yourself through short stories because they focus on telling a story rather than giving a lecture.
It’s also important to read novels if you want to improve your vocabulary. The more words you read, the more vocab you’ll learn and the more vocab you have, the better you’ll be at reading.
STEP 4: Listen to Podcasts
Podcasts are great for improving your listening skills because they force you to listen to long stories without skipping around. They also give you the opportunity to practice your English by speaking back what you hear.
Listen to podcasts every day. Even better, start a podcast with friends or family where you speak about a topic you care about.
STEP 5: Read Articles Online
The internet has made it possible to read almost anything for free. This makes it much easier to improve your reading.
Instead of reading books from the library or buying books in stores, read articles online. If you’re short on time, just use Google to search for a specific word.
You can also use Google’s translate tool to translate the text. You’ll get an idea of how the word is used and how it’s pronounced.
STEP 6: Write Articles Online
Writing articles online is a great way to practice your writing skills because you have to communicate in a more formal and structured manner.
This will help you write better in any situation because you’ll be able to communicate clearly. It’s also a great way to practice your grammar because you have to write in a more grammatically correct way.
It’s also a good way to practice your vocabulary because you need to express yourself in different ways.
STEP 7: Read Newsletters
Newsletters are a great way to learn new information. They’re also a great way to improve your reading because you’ll be forced to read longer stories.
Read the newsletters of companies that interest you, or subscribe to newsletters of magazines or news websites.
