11.Get involved in some social media (@Facebook, @Instagram, @WhatsApp) where you will find out texts, videos, things written and spoken mostly in English.

12.Always pay attention to grammar.

13.Brush up conjugation of verbs.

14.Be curious about the British culture.

15.Learn abbreviations (asap, &c, IOU, OK, vs., etc.)

18.Practice. Do lots of exercises.

19.Take notes, write drafts of emails, opinions, letters, descriptions, et cetera.

20.Read. Read lots of texts. Read letters, articles, newspapers, comic strips, magazines, lyrics, poetry, drama, novels. Read graded readers as well.
