It would be good for your to read some books (in english, obviously).

I read a lot of Mangas and play a lot of videogames (Videogames since I was 5), and that's how I learnt how to speack english, school obviously helpe, but that was the base.

11th grade english rules, at leat in Portugal :cool:.

The best way to practice and learn English is to read and use a dictionary. Record words you dont understand in a list along with their meaning.

As a Chinese man who moved to England not to long ago, this is how i improved my english. Reading academic journals is the best way to strengthen your english.

good luck with your studies!

Um.... I second that though. On the other half. I disagree with that. I was born in the U.S. A lot of the video games doesn't have proper written English. The English they use is not really good. Magnas such as comic books will not help you too. I have something to say about the video games.

Does video games give you good English? I said no. Because when you are playing a video game you have to pay attention to the moves and the graphics. Sometimes its very hard for you to hear an walk around the same time in the virtual game. When you play too much you can get an headache, seizure, and other sick symptoms. I have been there. I been playing video games when I was 5 too. I played all day and I didn't do to well in school. I barely passed high school. Games can be addictive. I suggest that you go to the book store to buy some chapter books such as The war of the worlds, stuart little, The third eye, Island of the blue dolphin and many more books. These books will give us the opportunity to learn about the writing that these authors are using. They uses very good English. Also go to this website: The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia Its a newspaper site. My friend showed me this website and I go on every now and then to read an article every night before I went to sleep. I also watch the news on television. Sometimes I misses so I went online to read the news at nytimes or fox 5 news. I use google to type fox 5 news.

Sometimes the English you write the teacher doesn't want that kind of English. So instead she throw away the entire paper. I've seen it happen.

As for manga. I don't think comic books is a good idea. Because comic books can cause mental issue. They can absorb it into your brain and messes it up. Between reality and fantasy. They also got pictures in it. They're not very good either.

Edit: Also write a diary everyday. It helps you to improve your English and your reading.
