Let me ask you something: Do you like watching movies, going through social media, and reading books? I’m sure you’d say “yes.” What if I told you that you can make your English better while enjoying these things you love?

It might sound surprising, but you can actually improve your English while watching TV shows or using social media. You’re not the only one who finds it tough to learn or get better at English. Many people delay because they think they have to read big books and memorize lots of words.

But learning doesn’t need to be boring or hard. Let’s make it fun, useful, and simple. Are you ready? Here’s a suggestion: Babbel provides online English courses that you might like and find useful.

As you go through this article about improving English quickly, I also suggest checking out my earlier post on developing reading skills in school.

Here is How to improve English quickly

1) Books

People often think of books as good friends because they can really help you get better at English. When you read, you learn lots of new words and how to put sentences together correctly. This makes you understand and use English better.

Reading teaches you new words and sentences. It also shows you how sentences work, which helps you talk and write better. Reading also makes you think about what the words mean, and this makes you better at understanding things.

If you don’t read a lot, you can start with interesting story books. Here are some short and good ones you can try. But do you know how to read books?

One great book is called “The Old Man and the Sea.” It’s a classic, but it’s not too hard to read, especially if you read the other two books I mentioned. Reading this book first is a good way to learn new writing techniques. The way Hemingway writes is well-known because it makes writing clear, easy to follow, and fresh.

“Animal Farm” is another popular book that can help you with English. It has short conversations and a simple story, so it’s interesting and easy to read until the end.

A book I really like is “Wind in the Willows.” The writing is short and easy to understand. Even a 7-year-old can enjoy this book. So, it’s a great choice for beginners who want to get better at English.

2) Interviews

A lot of us spend a long time on social media. Even though it might not seem logical, watching interviews can actually be more interesting than we think. We all have famous people we really like or look up to. We can watch their interviews with words written at the bottom to learn from them. Here’s how you can make the most of it:

Step #1: Watch with the words and see how they say things. This does two things at once.

Step #2: Say the whole interview in front of a mirror. It can be like a fun talk and a special feeling. Who doesn’t want to copy their favorite people?

Step #3: Write a short two or three-line comment below about what you think about the interview with your favorite famous person.

3) Movies

Having fun watching movies can make your English better. Movies use many different words, like slang and sayings, which can teach you new words and how to use them in everyday talk.

When you watch movies, you can see how people use grammar when they talk for real. This helps you understand and use grammar better. If you watch movies in English and read the words at the bottom, it helps you get better at understanding spoken English.

It’s important to pick movies that match your English level. Also, you can stop the movie and say what you heard or watch with words in your language to help understand. As you get more used to English, you can try watching movies with only English talking and no words at the bottom.

4) Diary

I really enjoy writing in a diary every day. It’s a helpful tool to see how you’re getting better at English. When you set aside a certain time each day to practice English, it helps you get better little by little.

To make your practice time the best, have clear goals for each time you practice. This helps you see how you’re getting better and work on certain things you want to learn. Reading over what you wrote and summarizing it can help you remember new words and ideas.

Also, thinking about how you’re doing and what’s hard can show you what you need to practice more. It helps you find ways to get better at the things you find tricky.

5) Read Blogs

Starting to learn English and improve your writing can be fun by reading blogs on different websites. You can check out blogs written by different people, and it won’t take long to read them. You can also listen to the blogs being read out loud, but the best way to get better at English is to read while listening.

Reading blogs can help you in many ways. It can make your speaking sound better and show you different ways of thinking about the same thing. This helps you learn a lot in just a little bit of time. Also, reading different blogs can make you excited to write your own things.

By reading blogs, you can learn about different styles of writing and how different writers do their work. So, are you ready to give this a try and see how it goes?

6) Practice

Getting better at English really comes down to practicing. Doing practice all the time, even if it’s just a little, is super important. Even if you only learn one new word, make sure to practice it a lot.

You can try making different sentences with the new word you learned. Also, find words that mean the opposite and words that mean the same. Learning opposite words is good because our brain remembers them really well. So, spend some time practicing both the opposite and similar words to the one you learned.

Remember, doing practice all the time is what helps you keep getting better at English. When you practice a lot, you can remember what you learned and get better at using the language more smoothly and correctly.
