    Default How to frame sentences

    Hello madam/sir!
    Well the problem is that as I am a native Hindi speaker, so whenever I speak in English, I first translate whatever I want to say from Hindi to English and sometimes I find that I don't know how to frame certain Hindi sentences in English, not only what words to use but also what structure to form.

    One more problem is that I am unable to use even the words that I know, while speaking and writing.

    I am currently preparing for the CAT exam and to clear the GD/PI, I need to have a good command over English.I have only four months left. So suggest me what to do and how to go about it.

    How much natural English do you expose yourself to? The more listening and reading you do, the more natural it will be`come to use English without translating.

    hello!
    Thank you for your reply.
    well these days I am quite free. So I devote considerable time to learning English.I do newspaper reading daily for about two and a half hour and also read magazines for 1 hr.I also read word Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis for about one and a half hour and also read dictionary for sometime. I also devote a couple of hours to speaking english with my friend every other day.
