How I did it: I knew i was going to start study this year, starting September, and that is was gonna be in English.. So i knew i was going to prepare my brain for this.. I started this year with travelling for 2 months, through Central America and i had many chances to practice my English in conversations, and i did. That helped me a lot! When i got back home to Sweden i bought the books i was going to study at University in advance, and i read EVERYDAY for at least 1 hour after i get home from work, and the days i´m not working, i read a couple of hours, i also listen to talks on Youtube in English..
I had this goal a bit abandoned. Yesterday I started watching to documentaries in English, no subtitles. It has been quite a time without doing this… I hope it helps both with my comprehension and pronunciation. Plus I’m learning stuff about subjects I’m interested in! ;-) 5 months ago
I found something useful and interesting. I recommend watching this short, 11-min video about English pronunciation and intonation:
I think I have a pretty good english pronounciation, but my vocabullary is a little poor.
I would like to increase my english vocabullary to be able to understand more when I read something, watch a movie or listen to a song. Hopefully one day I will be able to have conversations in english as easy as I talk in my native language.
The only problem is that most people have bad pronounciation and there are many classes that are aimed to theese people, but I haven’t seen classes aimed to people with poor vocabullary.
I hope I can find something like that or some class that is more about writing, because it would inevitably end up focusing more on vocabullary. 6 months ago
