42. Sing your heart out! Show the world your beautiful voice! Learn English songs and sing along with them to improve fluency and intonation… anyone for Karaoke?
43. Get a pen-friend or use chat-rooms, forums and community sites. If you can’t speak to someone in English, this is the next best thing.
44. 'Shadow' English CDs. Listen to a few sentences then repeat what you heard. Focus on the rhythm and intonation.
45. Have English radio on in your house. Even if you are not actively listening to it, you will still be training your ears.
46. Dictation. Listen to a CD or friend and write down what you hear.
47. Nobody likes to hear their own voice, but be brave and try it! Record your voice and listen to your pronunciation and intonation. It will help you to identify your problem areas.
48. Ask your helpful teacher if you can record the lesson. This is a great way to review. You can also listen to your teachers speaking speed and intonation.
49. Use an English/English dictionary as it will help you to keep thinking in English and not translating.
