General Tips to Improve Your Command Over English Language

Meghana
16 Jun 0 0

Greetings to you all!

There are mainly four core skills that will have to be developed in any language which are:

  • Listening skill
  • Reading skill
  • Speaking skill
  • Writing skill

Let's look at each of these skills, one by one, to see how they could be enhanced:

1) Listening skill: 

  • When someone else is talking, never interrupt.
  • Never talk over them, wait for your turn.
  • Eliminate distractions.
  • Actively listen, and not just hear.
  • Clarify your doubts/queries once the speaker completes his/her turn.
  • Reflect on the overall discussion.

2) Reading skill: 

  • Read with correct expressions.

  • Analyze phonics and spellings.
  • Use a dictionary extensively to learn more about new words.
  • When you learn a new word, think of all its other forms. eg: Beautiful (adjective), beauty (noun), beautifully (adverb)
  • Remember that the same word may sometimes be one part of speech, and sometimes another. E.g., That brick(noun) is yellow. Here is a brick(adjective) house.
  • New words are more comfortable to remember if sentences are formed using them.

3) Speaking skill:

  • Speak slowly, but not too slowly.
  • Pause between ideas.
  • Carefully articulate and pronounce your words.
  • Expand your vocabulary.
  • Learn the natural flow of English.

4) Writing skill:

  • Punctuation makes a huge difference.
  • Grammar matters.
  • Practice spellings of unfamiliar words.
  • Be wary of the differences between American and British English. We follow British English. e.g., the favourite is British English, and the favourite is American English.
  • Plan and outline the content first rather than to directly spring into action.
