- For Teachers
I made CPE and was wondering what to do next. I have already started learning SAT vocabulary and listening BBC Radio 4. Any ideas?
Congratulations on gaining CPE.
If I were you, I'd just relax now and enjoy using the language. While you may still have some slight accent, your command of 'good' English is probably sounder than that of some native speakers.
The only way you are realistically going to become more proficient is to live/work with native speakers. Your speech then might become more natural, though it wouldn't necessary become 'better' in the sense of 'grammatically more accurate'.

Some of my ex-mates did well dabbling in journalism or blogging - well from the linguistic point of view, others did benefit from extensive reading in abundance, still others have built up their careers around English. What seems really essential is creating an English-speaking background, just as 5jj said.
