I have been reading books for the last two years now and this habit has helped me to be aware of a lot of English words that I was not aware of.
While reading books, I came across a lot of words which I didn’t even knew the meaning of when I got started.
So I just went ahead and grabbed a small pocket dictionary and whenever I felt like there is a word whose meaning I didn’t know while reading something in English then I instantly searched that thing in my pocket dictionary and it helped me a lot to understand the book I was reading.
So it’s very crucial to develop a habit of reading books to enhance your English language.
There’s also a popular English proverb which goes like this 👇
Readers are leaders
Not only your English gets Better when you read books but you also get a lot of moral knowledge which other people don’t teach you in the real world.
So go ahead and grab some books that you will like to read and start reading them and note down all the words which you don’t know the meaning of in a separate notebook and look out for those words in the dictionary and this will help you a lot and add up to sharpening your English skills.
2. Write English more often
You should not only read books, but should also practice written form of English language to excel at it.

When you write something, don’t think about what you are going to write, what will people think about it, if people will like it or not, etc, etc.
Just pick a topic that you love and start writing whatever you feel like writing of, and when you have finished writing your copy, just read it once to make sure everything sounds good.

3. Listen and watch more
Part of learning is also observing, observing what experts do, and observing how native English speakers speak.
Let me tell you a little story about how I improved my spoken English language.
Let me tell you this: I’m not a native English speaker nor a writer, I have just become better at it day by day, and I still make mistakes sometimes and I am still learning and I’m sharing what I have learned.
Most of you already know that I am a Digital Marketing professional and a blogger, and one Fine day while I was surfing around the internet and just scrolling through Digital Marketing groups to know what’s happening, there I came across a highly fluent guy from India who was explaining something in his video, who is well-spoken at English language and I was very amused to listen to his English.
He is a Digital Marketing Trainer, and I instantly became a fan of him, not just because of his spoken English skills but also because of the skills that he has about digital marketing.
And I was like “How can an Indian guy be so fluent in English” and I still admire his spoken English skills and I have learned a lot from him.
So what I did was, I also started making small videos for social media platforms on a daily basis, speaking for just sometimes 1 minute and started uploading them on social media, and I didn’t give a crap about what other people would think about me, I just made video content and uploaded.
And you know what no one bothered to see my content and engage with it in the beginning days, but as days passed by and as I started creating video content more and more, I started to get better at speaking English fluently and being better at it.
I mostly make screencast videos for my youtube channel where I explain people about blogging and Digital Marketing in the English language and doing this has made me more skilled at the English language.
Here’s one of my video in Engllish Language
Otherwise earlier I used to be very shy about what people will think etc, but I stopped thinking about all of those and this helped me to overcome my shyness, and it has also let me try new things and Improve my skills.
who you should watch and learn?

You can do these things to be in touch with English.
- Watch english movies

- Watching tutorials Related to something in English.
- Listening to posdcasts etc.
Doing all the above mentioned things will give you access to experts, native speakers, how they speak etc and you can replicate their way of speaking english language to be better at English language.
4. When you are speaking English, don’t translate if first in your native language
When I began speaking English, the biggest mistake I made was that whenever I have to speak something, I translated it first in my brain and then later spoke.
This not only made my spoken English sound unprofessional and vulgar but also kept me away from learning.
Because when you do so, you are taking a bit of your time in translating, and you take time to think “what should it be that I should speak”, etc?
So it’s better to not think about what should you should speak when you are speaking, instead, you should just go with the flow of whatever your brain throws at you at the moment.
Sure you will make some mistakes, and say wrong words at the wrong times but you will definitely be prepared for the next time when you speak and this will prepare you for a real-world conversion in English.
5. Try speaking to yourself
Most people do not try to speak in English because they just think that people would not be interested in that, and other people around me don’t know English.
So that’s why they never try, and it’s the situation of almost every individual.
If that’s the case with you, you can try speaking something about a random topic that you like, and just record yourself while you are speaking.
After its over, play the video or audio whatever you have recorded and analyze all the mistakes you have made in the play and be prepared for the next time.
In this way, you can build your spoken English skills even when you don’t have anyone to talk to.
And I literally did this very thing when I had no one to talk to in English and it Instantly improved my Spoken English language.
