Five easy things you can do every day to improve your English

1. Learn 5 new words or phrases a day.
John Davey

If you stick at it, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you build up your vocabulary

2. Read one online article in English – maybe from a newspaper or magazine website.
Don’t worry if you can’t understand anything at first – the more you do it, the more you’ll understand

3. Find a radio or TV station that broadcasts English, and watch or listen for 15 minutes.
You’ll understand more every time – and it’ll help you get used to how the language sounds

4. Switch your Facebook, games console, phone, TV or any other technology to English. 
It's a great way to immerse yourself.

5. Have a short conversation with someone who speaks the language.
If you don’t know anyone, make a new friend – or find a penpal! Maybe you can help them with their Spanish in return.

These are just a few simple and free (or cheap) things you can do every day. I'm sure you have more interesting ideas, why not share them in the comments section?

Good luck!
