- LISTEN TO THE RADIO
✔️You will get used to hearing people speaking naturally and at a normal speed & hear different accents.
✔️You can listen even if you’re busy: in the car or on the bus on the way to work.
✔️Don’t worry about understanding everything!
You will ‘soak up’ more language than you realise.
✔️If you listen to the news you will also recognise names or news items, this will give you context to ‘hang’ the language onto.
2. READ MAGAZINES
✔️Most magazines and news outlets have an online version so you can access them easily and for free.
✔️Read about what you want! Search for a magazine in your target language related to something you’re interested in, this will motivate you to read.
✔️Pieces are usually short so you can read something in a short amount of time.
3. KEEP A DIARY
✔️There is no pressure – you don’t need to show anyone!
✔️Try to write regularly (a few times a week) you will see your progress and feel it getting easier.
✔️You will learn and use vocabulary that is relevant to your life.
