How To Improve Knowledge Of English?

The students should improve the languge of English from their school days itself. English is a widely accepted langauge of the world and the students should learn English from their school days only. Many students committ many grammatical mistakes while speaking the language although speak continously. The teachers and the education board should take some steps to make English better in many ways.

Make English better

Many students in our nation study in a English medium school but most of the students do not speak English very fluently. The level of fluency of English usually differs from region to region. To make English better the parents, students, teachers and education board should take active step to improve the language. If the students learn effective English from their childhood days then the future for them is brighter. If they travel across any part of the nation and any part of the world, they do not face any communication problem. They should improve their English knowledge but at the same time must not forget their mother tongue. The parents should not consider learning English as a taboo.

Ways to improve English

Reading habit

The students only study something that is prescribed in the syllabus but do not bother to acquire knowledge from books, television channels like Nat Geo, Discovery, etc. They should give attention to other sources because they learn the language more effectively. The parents should give them encouragement to learn English better. If they inclucate the habit of reading, then they can acquire a lot of knowledge about English. They should read something constructive to learn better English.

Extra assignments

Usually the class assigments that are prescribed at the end of the chapters are similar at the end of every chapter. Usually most of the textbooks comprise of chapters such as 'fill in the blank section', match the following section, insert conjuctions, prepositions etc, give similar meanings etc. The board can take some initiative steps to add new type of assignments to every chapter. The class assignments should be more constructive and provoke interest in the minds of children. The children are usually bored with the same type of assignments.

Do not stick to the assignments

Usually the teachers also teach something that is only prescribed in the text and perform the assignments that are mentioned at the end of every chapter. The teacher can take step to perform assignments based on their intellectual. They can perform the assignments that are more intersting and teach the students more easily. They can create their own assignments to provoke interest among the students. They can construct more game-like assignments to provoke interest.

Conduct sessions for effective interaction

The teachers once in a way can create sessions that can provoke interest among the students. Let the sessions not relate to the prescribed syllabus but something that is not related to syllabus. The students are bored with the prescribed assignments and the students should not feel that they are studying everything only from the examination point of view. The teachers should conduct sessions and also expect participation from the students. The teachers should teach the students that the language is useful to them from the life's perspective. The sessions may include a short lecture about the English language.

School should sponsor interactive sessions

The school or even the government can take some steps or conduct programs that enable the students to learn better English. They should create awarness among the students about the importance of English language. At the same time they should not provoke in the minds of students that other languages are not important. English is a language that is used in the arena of offices.

More interesting lessons

In most of the English textbooks the volume of stories compared to the others chapters is relatively less. Most of the other chapters simple include descriptive lessons which do not provoke much interest in the students. These chapters are actually important but balance the section of stories and other chapters effectively. The students are more interested in the story section and hence the board should consider this point.

Sponsor competitions such as elocution, debates and other oratory events

The schools although once in a way but do not regularly hold such competitions in school. The teachers, principles and other higher authorities should take active steps to hold such interactive sessions to promote the language. Sessions such as debates and other oratory events should be held periodically. The teachers may face hardships but if they take this extra step they can acquire the fruit tomorrow.
