So some of you who follow my blog will note that I am always studying English to improve my conversational ability. That is one of the reasons I started this blog and that is the main reason why I write this blog in English. The other reason being that many of my friends are not Italian so they cannot read Italian but most of my friends can read English with no problem. Well flashback to a couple of weeks ago when I talked about wanting to take the TOEIC test. If you remember the TOEIC test is a business related English test. My goal for the TOEIC test was 850 points. But when I took a free test that I found online I scored much lower. I only got 640 points. Well guess what? I’ve been studying since then and I have made some improvements. What I found was that my vocabulary was lacking. So I went online to find a vocabulary course for the TOEIC test. And I found. And I’ve been using it to increase my vocabulary. Doing that has helped me improve my TOEIC test score to 710 points. It’s not my goal but I’m getting closer. If any of you out there are looking for a good vocabulary course I highly suggest the website that I found, it’s called Goodwin English. I will leave a link below if you want to check it out.
Update: A lot of people have emailed me and said that they were in a similar situation. They need to improve their English so that they can better communicate with people from around the world and online. So I have decided to write more posts about studying English and websites that I use to improve my English skills. To get started you can go on Youtube to find some pretty good free videos that can teach you things like basic greetings and introducing yourself. If you are a higher level than you can still find some good videos but eventually you should buy a textbook or use an online English course. Of course the very best way to study English is to take a local English class. Many cities have private schools especially created to teach adults English conversation skills.In my town I found a very good school that was small but had very experienced teachers. I went there for about a year, two or three times a week. That year of study really helped me improve my skills from a low level to an intermediate level. I would highly recommend it for anybody else. Because I got so many emails from visitors saying they wanted to know how I studied English you can expect more post on my website about English study. I think the next post I’m going to do will be some popular YouTube videos that I have found that can help other people. So thank you everyone for writing me your emails I’m definitely listening to what you want and what type of content you want to see on my website so expect some changes in future posts.
