Improving your English language skills
Many years ago, someone told me “Mr., just because you know how to say yes/no, don’t think you know English.”
That was true, I knew only ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ Was that humiliating? Yes, it was. Did I cry? Yes. Was I upset? Yes, for quite some time.
But I did not stop there. It was a blessing in disguise. I made it a ‘stepping stone’ for success.
I took it as a challenge. I started reading dictionaries! Yes, I followed the trail of words and their meanings through the pages of books and dictionaries. Started catching phrases here and there. I also used to repeat an audio sermon phrase by phrase. I worked hard on improving my English. You can do that too. Take it as a challenge. Read more, listen more, write more. Practice makes you perfect.
