Even after you’ve attended our English language school in Hawaii and successfully completed your course, you can continue improving your English skills! Just because you’re inside a classroom and study textbooks doesn’t mean it’s all over once you’re done. The more you speak, read, write, and communicate with others each day, the more confident you’ll become. How can you keep learning?
Join a conversation club. You don’t have to engage only with those whose native language is English; in fact, it’s very beneficial to practice speaking with others who are also working to better their English skills. There are lots of cultural centers, universities, and libraries across the country that offer free conversation clubs on a weekly or every-other-week basis. You’ll also enjoy making new friends along the way.
Become an avid reader. We know, not everyone is passionate about reading. However, the more books and blogs you read that are written in English, the more you’ll expand your vocabulary. When you come across a word you’re not familiar with, look it up on Google to learn its meaning, and then look back at the sentence so you get a greater understanding of how it’s used.
Watch television shows and movies in English. It’s entertaining, fun, and a great way to improve your English skills. Considering the documentaries, movies, and shows you can watch on a service such as Netflix, and the fact that you can turn on English subtitles you can actually read, it’s a great benefit to both your speaking and spelling skills.
Keep in touch with students you met at school. When you attend a language school, naturally you make friends from other countries. Keeping in touch, whether you speak over the phone, Skype, or through social media, is a great way to not only catch up, but practice your English speaking skills.
These are just a few of the ways you can continue improving your English skills, even after you’ve completed your course. The more you use it, the better you’ll become in terms of speaking, spelling, reading, writing, and overall communication!
