    ***NOT A TEACHER***You now live in Chicago. So use every opportunity to speak with native speakers. The more you use English, the more you will learn. Here's a "secret" that some teachers give their English learner students: Every day read some comic strips. In your city, I think you have two newspapers. Do they have comic strips? Read very slowly. Just a little bit each day. The comic strips will teach you how people speak in everyday life. And you will learn so much about American culture, too. When you read some words in the comic strips that you don't understand, ask an American friend or post the question here. Good luck.

    Thank you so much for your response.
    Today itself I will find out about the local newpapers and the comic strips. Also I am glad to receive a spontaneous response.
