Hi Tini and Aid-e
I believe that you may improve your English by doing the following:

1) read English books - try to find books with subjects that are interesting to you. For me, I have always liked an English novel.

2) find friends whom you can speak English with.

3) use English in your e-mails/social network,etc. - be careful though as there are too many jargons that may mislead you!

4) think in English - this may be bit harder but it has worked for me.

5) NEVER give up to practice all the above.

Hope these suggestions help.

juben1, thank you!! Point 2 won't be easy, at least for me but I'll try all your suggestions every day, that's why I'm here in TFD, point 4: I heard that before, I better find the way to start, it is hard. Regards.

You learn more quickly under the guidance of experienced teachers. You waste a lot of time going down blind alleys if you have no one to lead you.

This forum is a good place to learn.
Never mind some spelling mistakes or grammar errors. We all do them. Just ask questions and answer to others'.
You'll perform better than you'd imagined sooner than you have thought.

English is my native language, and admittedly it is difficult to learn; you'd be surprised how many natives in America still can't speak or write it properly. However, while I was in high school, I studied French, and my French teacher said the same thing about learning to think in French; it does work. So does reading in the language you wish to learn; and both Amazon and Barnes and Noble have e-reader apps for PC you can download for free, and lots of free books you can then download into them to read. Just go to amazon.com and click on Kindle, the follow the instructions to download the free Kindle app for your PC, and search the book list for free books then choose those you want to read. When you choose a book, click on the buy now bar to the right, it doesn't mean there's a charge. It takes about 5 minutes and it shows up in your Kindle library, when you open the app, and then download and read. I haven't quite figured the B&N Nook out as well yet, but I know the Kindle app works easily. Hope this helps you get started.
