I want to show you the best way to learn English. Talk to yourself don't translate
into English from your own language. Think in English to improve your fluency
You will find words easier to remember if you try to remember an example
sentence using that word rather the word on its own.
Be confident, don't be afraid to make mistakes. The best way to learn is
through speaking. Surround yourself in English. Put yourself in an all
english-speaking environment where you can learn passively. Establish a routine
make yourself a study plan decide how much time a week you are going to spend
studying and stick to it.
Tell your family and friends about your study plan get them to push you to study
and also don't let them interrupt you.
When you learn a new word think of all its other forms for example: adjectives
beautiful, noun beauty, adverb beautifully.
Practice the four core skills improving your writing reading and listening
skills. Keep a notebook of new words you learn.
Plan to take a test. You'll find that you work harder when you need to study for

Use English whenever you can it's as simple as that!
