In many cases, the best way to improve your English fast is to immerse yourself in the language.
Why does it work so fast?
Well, when all you have in order to communicate is your English, then you simply don’t have a choice! You learn English, or you die trying
Of course, sometimes you cannot move to an English speaking country for a few years time, but there are other means we can use to try and imitate this kind of immersion.
One of those is videos.
The best thing would probably be to find videos on a subject that really interests you. Then, while watching, you should check out the new words in a good dictionary. You can use each new word in a few sentences – it will help you understand and remember it better.
Why should you choose a video on a subject that you really like?
Because it’s more fun! And it will give you more motivation to carry on through the obstacles.
The internet offers practically millions of videos, on any subject. You can watch them at your own pace, and pause whenever you need to. (Unlike shows or movies on the TV!)
You can go to websites like YouTube, or simply search for videos on your favorite subject on Google.
