There are 5 ways how to improve your English language :

1. Read

Read anything English - books, magazines, brochures, catalogs, signboards and everything. If you’ve been accustomed to reading the newspaper in your mother tongue, choose the one in English from now on. Stick to it.

Set yourself a periodical target to achieve. For example, reading 2 books per month. Then, increase the load to 3 or 4 books. Mix the book genres according to your interest. Start slow and you will improve progressively.

Learning a language, especially a language which is foreign to you, is a gradual process. It takes time. Don’t be discouraged with the amount of new vocabs and grammar you learn every day.

2. Write

Write your first sentence in your sketch book, diary, journal, blog and so on. If you’re so scared that someone will see your writing and laugh at it, keep it a secret. Put under your mattress or something. If you blog, assume no one is reading it. Or keep it password-protected. As the time goes by, take your time to review back what you have written for the past 6 months. While the beginning of your ‘writing career’ may sound embarrassing, you will be surprised to see how well you actually can write and how much you have improved.

3. Speak, and don’t be afraid of mistakes

The easiest way to avoid mistake is to stop doing things and this is where people go wrong. They assume that those who make less mistake are the better learners, an assumption which is only true inside the classroom. In real world, people who make mistakes learn faster as the experience taught them invaluable lesson. So, start your English conversation with your parents, siblings, neighbours, classmates and peers. Don’t be intimidated when other people surrounding laugh at your attempt and your mistakes. See the difference after 1 month.

4. Watch English movies without subtitles

Watching English movies or programs without the subtitles sharpen your listening and auditory skills. Begin with those films or documentaries you have not watched before. Listen to what is being said and interpret the meaning of it, either implicitly or explicitly. Later, when you write, try recalling some of the phrases used in the movie and now you have combined your listening skill with your writing skill into one.

5. Join courses

When circumstances are right, pick and join an English course, which is easily available nearby your neighborhood, in schools or even online, where you can learn from the comfort of your own place. There are many levels of courses available and making the right choice seems to be a daunting task. But fret not. You can always discuss with the program provider to make an initial assessment on which level of English competency you have. You can also test yourself to discover what kind of English learner you are here, before proceeding with any English courses.

Lord of The Ring (The Return of The King)

GENRE(S): Action Drama Fantasy
DIRECTED BY: Peter Jackson
RUNNING TIME: 210 minutes
ORIGIN: USA / New Zealand

Bird's Eye View

This shows a scene from directly overhead, a very unnatural and strange angle. Familiar objects viewed from this angle might seem totally unrecognized at first. This shot, however, put the audience in a godlike position, looking down on the action. People can be made to look insignificant, ant-like, part of wider scheme of things.

Hand-held Shot
A shot made with the camera held in hand, not on a tripod or other stabilizing fixture.

Extreme Close Up
It is too close to show very dramatic scenes of reactions or emotion.

Long Shot
A shot taken with the camera at a distance from its subject.

A shot in which a face or object fills the frame. Close-ups might be achieved by setting the camera close to the subject or by using a long focal-length lens.

Scene Transition
The moving from one scene to another. The scene 1 fade out while the scene 2 fade in.

Don't Look back


As you travel through life,

there are always those times
when decisions just have to be made,
when the choices are hard,

and solutions seem scarce,
and the rain seems to soak your parade.

There are some situations where all you can do
is simply let go and move on,
Gather your courage and choose a direction
that carries you toward a new dawn.

So, pack up your troubles and take a step forward -
The process of change can be tough,
but think about all the excitement ahead
if you can be stalwart enough!

There might be adventures you never imagined,
Just waiting around the next bend,
And wishes and dreams just about to come true -
In ways you can't yet comprehend!

Perhaps you'll find friendships that spring from new things
as you challenge your status quo,
and learn there are so many options in life,
and so many ways you can grow!

Perhaps you'll go to places you never expected,
and see things that you've never seen,
or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
and wonderful spots in between!

Perhaps you'll find warmth and affection and caring
and somebody special who's there
to help you stay centered and listen with interest
to stories and feelings you share.

Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing your friends
are supportive of all that you do,
and believe that whatever decisions you make,
they’ll be the right choices for you.

So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
and taking your life day by day...
There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road -
Don't look back! You're not going that way!
