Even when you’re not in the classroom, you can—and should!—find other ways to practice your English skills. People who can speak, read, and write English fluently are able to do so because they use the language every day.

Make practicing English part of your daily routine; even as little as 30 minutes a day can help. If you need to improve your reading skills but don’t particularly enjoy books, focus on your other interests instead. For example, if you love baseball, read some sports articles or watch a game on TV with closed captioning. Watching television and movies is another great way to improve your listening skills and comprehension. If you want to practice conversational English, don’t be afraid to make small talk. Saying hello to a cashier at the grocery store or asking your barista how his day is going will help you feel more comfortable using the language. If you make learning English fun, you’ll always look forward to it.
