How to improve your speaking and listening skill 😉
Make friends with people in Vancouver
First of all, I recommend using the Vancouver Meetup Website.
Vancouver hosts all sorts of Meetups, there are conversational English meetups,
cooking meetups, meetups for people who like board games etc.
Go to a meetup event today!
here’s the link:
Watch Educational TV and use subtitles
Watch TED talks
TED talks have been watched by a billion people worldwide.
These are informative talks given by academics about all sorts of interesting topics, such as; art, design, science, fashion, politics and more.
Here’s the link:
This is how I recommend you use TED talks to improve your English.
1. watch the TED talk without subtitles – once
2. then watch the TED talk with English subtitles twice
3. then try to overlap, and repeat what the speaker says at least 3 times
(you can use subtitles this way)
4. Finally, try to shadow and repeat what the speaker says
without using subtitles at least 5 times
You can try it from this banner ↓
You can also watch a variety of great TV shows with English subtitles on Netflix
My last 2 suggestions are:
change your cell phone to English
listen to English music
And finally, don’t be afraid to just try and speak English, don’t worry if you make mistakes!
