    how to use "enhance"

    I usually hear expressions like "enhance the appearance". Since enhance means making something better and improved, is it proper to say "I want to improve my English listening level"? Or what are the more acceptable expressions?

    NOT A TEACHER

    That seems possible to me. Alternatively you could say, 'I want to improve my level of English comprehension/listening'.

    Since your thread title is "how to use "enhance"", I wonder if you meant to ask "Is it proper to say "I want to enhance my English listening level"?"

    If not, I don't see how your title is relevant.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sorry, I'm afraid I made a mistake. Yes, I want to know if I can say "enhance my English listening level"
