Learning English through Reading

                       Learning English through Reading

As a learner of English from China, I try to learn English well through reading. I think reading is the best way to study all the languages, it can improve your vocabulary, reading skill and writing. I'm good at listening and speaking but I made many grammar mistakes in my writing. The Pre-Sessional course in Warwick helped me a lot.

Vocabulary is a big problem in learning English for a non-native speaker like me. Remember so many new words are very boring but I have to do to so. Because more vocabulary you know means the high English grade you are. I like reading the English novels like Harry Potter and pick up the useful new words in a small notebook. After reading I will look up the dictionary and try to remember it. This is my favourite way of learning vocabulary because I can learn it through my interest.

My best skill is listening and speaking, because I'm a sunny, outgoing and optimistic person. I try my best to communicate with others and join in the different society club. Now I always try my best to improve this skill through chat with native speaker, watch television and movies. My worst skill is writing, cause of my poor grammar and little vocabulary. I thing I need do more and more reading and write more and more essay.

The Pre-sessional course in University of Warwick was the best experience helps me to learn English. Through this time I had learnt not only the English Language skills but also the way of study in a British University. It improved my English a lot even helped me a lot about my personal growth.

In a nutshell, try to learn English through reading. Although there is no short cut in learning, you can choose the best way to do this hard work like read whatever you like.

    Hi!
    I seem to have overlooked this blog entry – sorry that I did not comment on it earlier. It is very interesting – a clear and honest account of your feelings and strategies for learning English. I think you are right about reading – it will help you learn both grammar and vocabulary more easily. I felt from reading this blog that I got to know you as a person – you express your attitude to learning clearly and accurately – you do not make many grammar mistakes so well done!! Good luck with bringing all your skills up to the level of your listening and speaking.

    I have read the comments above learning English through . I do agree with this idea. Really , learning takes place whenever it is reading for pleasure most the learners coose their favourite books , novels , fictions , non fictions, inorder to increase their knowlege be and also be able to speak and write in the targat language. I will be happier if like this kind of questions raised and everyone should give his idea . It will help learners of English.
