You don’t need to live in an English-speaking country to become fluent in English. One way to start fun learning is to do it right in the comfort of your own home. Your own home is the best place where you can learn.

So, do you want to improve your English at home? I will share with you some effective strategies to help you get faster results.

Sing Karaoke

At home, you can just relax and sing your favorite songs as loudly as you want! It doesn’t matter what singer you prefer, you’ll improve your speaking skills while having a good time.

Luckily, you don’t need an expensive karaoke machine to sing karaoke. You can easily find karaoke songs on YouTube. Simply type the name of the song and artist, and plus the word “karaoke” into the search field. 

Create your own English library

Start by looking through the textbooks and other materials that you already have at home. Decide which of these resources you still find useful and put them in your “English corner”.

Read Out Loud

Reading silently can help train your mind in the English language. However, reading out loud will train your tongue to speak. Start with easy English reading materials

Chat with Friends Online

You can practicespeaking in English in a conversational way. This will be good practice for you.

One of the most useful video and voice chat apps isSkype. Another app you can use isViber. Install the application, and then you can start talking to your friends in your phonebook.

Make English friends

There are probably many foreigners living in your country. Find ways to meet native English-speakers: going to foreign bars and restaurants, joining sport and social clubs, or arranging language exchanges.

Find fun ways to learn new words

If you like singing, then look up the words for your favorite English songs, also, you can write new words on ‘Post-it’ notes and stick them up around your house. Make funny example sentences or draw little pictures next to new vocabulary to help you remember.

Shepherd’s Pie

 Shepherd’s Pie is primarily made from minced lamb and potatoes. Many families will make this dish using beef, but then it should actually be referred to as Cottage Pie, as shepherds only herd sheep (duh). 

Most Brits would agree that Shepherd’s Pie is best eaten at home with your family and, in fact, the dish is not often served in restaurants.

 Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington is a fillet of steak coated in patê and then rolled in pastry. Although the dish shares its name with the famous Duke of Wellington, it actually shares no link with the British nobility. In reality, it is thought that Beef Wellington was based around the French dish filet de bœuf en croûte (fillet of beef in pastry).

Beef Wellington is served in posh pubs and restaurants up and down the country.

A phrasal verb is a phrase that consists of a verb with a preposition or an adverb, or both. In many cases the meaning of the phrasal verb cannot be deduced from its separate elements. In addition, many phrasal verbs are polysemous i.e., they have more than one meaning. There are also difficulties with the grammar of phrasal verbs, particularly with the position of the particles, in that some phrasal verbs are ‘separable’ (the particle can be moved), while some are ‘inseparable.’ Quite apart from all this, there are literally thousands of them
