11. Concentrate on Reading
Rather than reading text books, focus on reading novels. If you enjoy the material you’re reading, you’re much more likely to continue to push yourself. Start with children’s books and work up to more complicated pieces.
A great starting point for adult literature is to find a copy of your favourite book in English so you already know the gist of the story and can use that basic understanding to effectively work out what the words and phrases you’re reading mean.
