If you want to improve your English speaking, writing, listening or reading there are many quick activities you can do today (and everyday!) that will help to make a big difference.
To get started, you can:
1) Listen to some interesting talks from TED and once you’ve finished, try to write a few sentences about what you’ve heard. Here are two that I enjoyed this week.
2) Next, you can read an article from your favourite website or magazine. Then, write a sentence or two which gives your opinion on the article. Here’s an article that I found of interest where Mark Zuckerberg talks about how some people are turning against globalisation.
3) To improve your speaking skills, take a few minutes to think about how you would introduce yourself to a new friend or colleague at work. Try to write a few sentences about yourself, your background, interests and experience and remember to add as much description as possible. Then practice reading what you’ve written out loud. Finally, practice saying it without looking at any notes.
Have a great week!
