How to improve your English Skills

Updated on May 18, 2010

Would you like to improve your English skills without having to go back to school. Or maybe you recently moved from your home country and want to establish fluent English? In any case, the best way to do this is through your writing. There are certain things you can do like reading more, using mini cards for memorizing and more. Here are just a few things you can do to improve your English on your own time.

Reading a Book

Every night, try to read a book. I suggest reading something that is slightly more challenging from what you are used to reading. Keep a dictionary by your side when you do this. If you don't like to flip through the pages, you can always get a dictionary that is digital. I use the digital ones and they are very useful - you can even translate words in your own language if you don't know what it means.

Learning from Friends

Learn from someone who is fluent. You could ask a friend to teach you once a week on words you don't know about. They can even read to you while you take notes on words you don't know. Also, be sure to ask about pronunciations because you'll need to get in the habit of pronouncing your words correctly.


When I first started writing when I was younger, I used something called "English4Idiots". This is a wonderful program which auto corrects all of your spelling and teaches you how to write proper grammar without even trying. It even has grammar spelling explanations which is wonderful for new writers.
