Hi

I am not having English classes this year but I am planning to spend my next year in an English speaking country. So what should I do in order to maintain my English level or even improve it. You may ask 'Well why did you not pick English then', but all I have got to say to that is that that is a very complicated matter that I am not going to tell you about.

Thanks in advance.

Here is my suggestion:

1) Spend 15-20 minutes each day practicing. Read the front pages of any English newspaper out loud. This can help tone and exercise your jaw and tongue muscles in English pronunciation.

2) Write a detailed journal/diary to keep your mind in tune with English.

3) Come to this forum often

I think that would be enough to make me want to give up learning. Emotion: wink
Please come up with more suggestions...

I suggest going to English chat rooms and making a friend there who will talk to you every day or so for the next year and help you. You may even pick up some slang and more advanced English.
