My Day

Hi, my name is Jayanna. I am a teacher. Yesterday I had a very busy day. I woke up at half past six. Waking up was so hard that I needed to wash my face with cold water to open my eyes. I brushed my teeth. Then I went to the kitchen and had a cup of coffee and toast for breakfast. I ironed my clothes and finally got dressed and left home around seven o’clock. I got on the bus at half past seven. I arrived at school at ten to eight. I taught my class till four o'clock.

Dear Gita,

If you'd like to improve your English, one thing you can do is to build up your vocabulary. I’m afraid there is not a short cut for this. But there are many effective ways. First of all, you should read a lot. You can read short stories, comics, newspapers, magazines etc. depending on your English level. Look up the meaning of difficult words in a dictionary. Another way of building vocabulary is to watch movies in English which will also help with pronunciation. Keep a vocabulary notebook and write down new words each day. Keep in mind that you have to revise them regularly. In my opinion, to communicate with people all you need is words

Your loving
