Dear Rosmini

I received your létter yesterday. In your letter, you have written about your weakness in English. You have also asked me for some suggestions on how to improve my English. Here I go with my suggestion. In order to learn English well, you have to acquire all the four skills of English which are reading, writing, listening, and speaking. At first, you should attend your English classes regularly and listen to your teachers attentively.  You should also watch English programmes on TV and listen to the English programmes on the radio. All of these will improve your listening skill. Secondly, you should speak in English with your English teacher, and interact with family members and friends for daily activities. Self-talk in English also helps a lot in developing speaking skills. Thirdly, to improve your reading skill, you should often read and try to understand storybooks, illustrated books, daily or weekly English newspapers, etc. While reading, if you fail to understand the meanings of some new words, you should try to guess (a) their meanings from the context. If you can’t, you should look them up in a good dictionary. You should also practice ‘Reading Comprehensions’, cloze passages, etc. Besides, you have to study grammar for developing writing skills. Then, you should regularly write paragraphs, compositions, etc. off-hand and get them checked by your English teachers. Furthermore, you can keep a diary and write a few pages every day. These things will improve your writing skill. By doing the above activities, you can improve your English skills.

I hope to hear from you soon. Convey my best regards to your parents. Take care.

Yours ever
