There are countless ways of practicing your English skills outside of your ESL class. Consider asking your ESL teacher for suggestions. He or she might recommend changing the language settings on your browser, phone, and social media pages from your native language to English. Doing so can help you learn how to quickly and accurately identify English words. Additionally, watch a movie or TV show in your native language first to get the gist of the story, and then watch it in English.

Ask your friends from your ESL class to meet for extra practice outside of class. Get together for a walk in the park or a study session in the library. Agree to only use English when speaking together during these times. You’ll likely find that this helps you expand your vocabulary, and significantly improves your conversation and listening skills.
