How to make the most of your time at BBELS


Students often ask me how they can improve their English outside of the classroom. Here are my top tips for this week:

• do your homework – after corrections do it again!
• talk to your homestay family
• make vocabulary lists – don’t forget pronunciation!
• keep a diary in English – ask your teacher to correct it
• write e mails and text messages in English
• watch English language DVDs (use the subtitles)
• watch TV – especially comedies and soap operas or even The Simpsons!
• read English readers – you can borrow them from the school
• learn how to do something, from an English speaker or another student e.g. cooking, games, sports
• listen to music
