Two years ago when I began to learn English,I found it was hard for me to remember all the new words and so I didn't understand the listening exercises.My teacher gave me advice to try to learn at least ten new words every day and listen to the tape and radio programmes.So I kept on doing these and now I have made lots of progress in listening.Besides the listening problem I also had problems with speaking.I tried to get involved in English activities,such as,attend English debbates and speech contests,ask and answer at least two questions every English class,watch English movies and so on.Now I become more confident and I can speak English well.
Learning English just like learning any other language, is hard work so my first advice is to spend much time practicing using English every day. Besides, we should listen to the teacher and take notes carefully in class. Go over what is learnt regularly and finish doing our homework carefully. Listen to English radio programmes, read English stories and newspapers, watch English films and TV programmes ,keep a diary in English and attend English debbates and speech contests. If we make mistakes, correct them at once and try not to make the same mistakes. What's more, we should look up new words in the dictionary before class and prepare each lesson carefully before class. I believe if we work hard and have good ways of learning English, we will learn English well
