? Dear Lin Hao, ? How is it going? Now I will give you some advice on learning English. ? As we know there are language skills. They are listening, speaking, reading and writing. As for listening, I usually get up early in the morning and listen to the radio or tape, and practice pronunciation at the same time. If you want to speak the language you have to talk to others in English. So joining and English club or an English corner is a good way. Remember to open mouth and speak English. Making mistakes now helps to make fewer mistakes in future. For reading, you can read some newspapers or some interesting story books. When you like the stories you will have some feelings to share. Then it will lead your to w
rite. The more you read, the better you can write. ?
Anyway, the most useful way to learn English is to use it. Spending enough time practicing it will help a lot. And interest is the best teacher. If you like it, go and get it. You are sure to make it.
