i am somali i learn english language for i want to ask you how i can improve my second language?
Nobody is born knowing the English language. Everybody must learn any language.
The best way to learn English is to force yourself to use English as much as possible. This is sometimes called immersive learning: by relocating to an English-speaking country, forcing yourself to use English every moment of the day.
If you cannot relocate, then you must find time to practice. Read English books. Listen to English radio shows. Watch English Television / Movies. Immerse yourself in the language.
Once you started to think in English instead of Somali, you are mostly done.
Hello gadhka: Look for GOOD examples of writing. DO NOT look to questions and Hubs on this site for good examples. The quality of writing on HubPages is generally abysmal. Look to old books -- fiction and non-fiction -- for good examples. By "old", I mean written prior to 1940.
As to TV and movies, the same applies. Generally, the quality of the speech in modern movies and TV is also bad. Some exceptions would be some of the "public television" programs from the U.S., or perhaps BBC in England.
kschang's answer is very good. You have to remember that babies need up to 3,000 hours of exposure to their native language before they start to speak it.
We can all learn any language or any number of languages well if we have enough contact with it every day.
A child hears the word “nose” tens or even hundreds of times before they use it in a sentence.
You must find good examples of the spoken language, break it up into small manageable sections (10-30 minutes) and listen to the same section at least twice a day. You can get material from the BBC, or search for podcasts on internet. If you record 1 or 2 minutes of classical music (without words) at the beginning it also help to open up both hemispheres of your brain It's not necessary to listen attentively, you can be driving, cooking, walking, biking etc
My younger students listen to between 10 and 20 minutes twice a day, older students listen to longer sections. You might like this fun article to put things in context: http://www.learnenglishlanguagewell.com … ilds-play/
Nobody can learn English for you, you have to do it. Organise your time listen, read and enjoy. Good luck
Talking to a native speaker. I learned it very fast by moving to the United States. But once you are here the pace slows down quite a bit. You realize that you have to be actively talking to people to improve even more... I hope this helps
Hi there... there are many sites and groups on facebook that you can join to learn more.
I am writing idioms and phrases on here for English language learners so you can take a look at that.
I also recommend, as a teacher, to read books and listen to music and watch films in English to improve your skills.
Try watching movies and TV shows (with subtitles or closed captions), listening to music, reading newspapers (of stories you know already), and things like that. Of course, practice with other people is very important.

The best way to become comfortable with a new language is to speak with people in the language and get as much practice as possible. And always ask questions if you don't understand something! Is it better to ask a question and get a good answer than keep making mistakes.
Practice with English speakers; try to write the language; borrow CD's from libraries; go to English speaking venues and look at documentaries in English on the net or T.V.

Should everyone in this country be forced to learn English?English is NOT the official language of this country and it is considered one the hardest languages to master. Many Americans who move to other countries never learn the native language there.
