How to improve my English skills? It's a challenge for me since then to read in English. This is my 2nd language, we seldom use this in our daily conversations. As a result I'm having hard time reading words in this English. I did alot lately to improve my skills. Some of these are reading books during freetime which helps my vocabulary. I also read dictionaries and used technology like talk to speech to check the audio on how to pronounce certain words. I'm also starting to use English in daily conversations. All I need is someone around me who can also talk in English. Most of my family members don't want to use the language at home. They're more comfortable to use our native language. I'm also planning to get a virtual friend who's native language is English so I can also practice my speaking skills. I'm hoping to master English very soon.
