I'm not a teacher, but I have been in your place once. This is what I did:

- Read English books. If your level of English is not very high, you can start with books for children.
- Watch movies and series in English. Without subtitles in your native language. You can also watch a movie in English with English subtitles (many DVD's have that option for deaf people)
- Find someone who speaks English and practice with that person.

Welcome, sakura.


- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- Capitalise the word "I" (first person pronoun) and proper nouns like 'English'.
- End every sentence with the appropriate punctuation mark (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).
- Put a space after a comma.
- Write 'you' — not 'u'.

Also, ask a lot of questions about things you don't understand. Be prepared to make mistakes- it's part of learning.

Welcome the the forum, Sakura and non_e_guisto. :hi:

Thanks, appreciate it :)

And I agree. The only stupid thing you can do is to stay stupid. Every mistake you make is one new thing learned. Do not make them on purpose, but don´t be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes are good. The entire evolution of living species is based on accidental errors in DNA multiplication. Mistakes are the root of everything. So just be bold and go for it.
