How to be good at English (21-30 tips)
Eugenio Fouz

21.Learn by heart (memorize) phrasal verbs, synomyms, antonyms, lists of words.

22.Understand the meaning of words, sentences, paragraphs or any text you read or listen.

23.Use Latin mottoes if you know their meaning.

24.Pronunciation: look for a good model and follow it.

25.Get used to listening to podcasts (BBC.co.uk podcasts) regularly.

26.Watch as many videos as you can. I recommend these: BBC, euronews, YouTube.

27.Imitate the pronunciation and tone of native speakers, but never betray your own accent.

28.Separate the words when you speak (and when you write).

29.Do not speak too fast. Do it slowly, but not extremely slow motion.

30.Literature: read the Classics (English and American literature: Charles Dickens, Wilde, Shakespeare, Byron, Thoreau, Hawthorne)
