Here are some tips which may help you to master the English language!
1) Speak without fear. The fastest way to learn anything is to do it – again and again until you get it right. Like anything, learning English requires practice.
2) Use all of your resources. The Internet is a fantastic resource for virtually anything, but for the language learner it’s perfect.
3) Surround yourself with English. Take notes in English, put English books around your room, listen to English language radio broadcasts, watch English news, movies and television.
4) Do exercises and take tests
5) Listen to English music. Get the lyrics (words) to the songs you are listening to and try to read them as the artist sings.
6) Record yourself.

In 1935, a man was riding his motorcycle when he saw two boys in the road. He tried not to hit them, but he fell off his motorcycle and died from the accident on May 19. His name was T. E. Lawrence. When he was in his twenties, Lawrence went to the Middle East to study. World War I started, and he helped the Arabs fight against the Ottoman Empire. In 1962, they made a movie about his life. The title is “Lawrence of Arabia.” It is almost four hours long, but many people think that it is one of the best movies ever made. (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
