Steps to guide you:

  1. Read Books In English

One of the first steps is to choose some books to read in English. The interesting thing is that the choice is for a book that you are already familiar with, thus facilitating the understanding of the new contact through this new language.

Mark the words and expressions that you have the most difficulty with and ask the teacher in the next class, but be sure to consult the dictionary to continue reading. Try making a list of expressions and words you learn. Have constant access to the list so you will memorize these items.

The habit of reading will also help you improve your writing since you will have contact with the language and will better absorb the differences in writing and correctly constructing sentences.

  1. Watch Movies And Series In English

Being in the habit of watching movies and series in English can also help learn the English language. The idea is to find a series or movie that you have already watched and are familiar with the story.

With this in mind, you can do tests: watch it for the first time in English but with the subtitles in Portuguese; watch a second time with English audio and subtitles, and finally watch a third time in English and without subtitles. This type of exercise helps to increase vocabulary, especially when thinking about everyday expressions such as slang. Whenever there is a question, stop, go back and try to understand what that word means and the context in which it is being used.

  1. Listen To Songs In English

Listen to songs in English? This we always do. But are you in the habit of paying attention to the lyrics and trying to understand the message of that song? The exercise here is precisely this: choose songs you like and try to understand what is being sung: this will help you improve your ability to understand the spoken language, as well as, once again, learn new common expressions that end up not being taught in English courses. Try listening to the song once and try to understand as much as you can. Then listen again following the lyrics, explore the words with a dictionary. Finally, listen again without the lyrics and try to see if you understand the song better.
