𝚃𝚒𝚙𝚜 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚛𝚒𝚌𝚔𝚜 𝚝𝚘 𝚍𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚕𝚘𝚙 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝙴𝙽𝙶𝙻𝙸𝚂𝙷 :



1. Opening a Quora account:


I daily spent about half an hour on the website quora.com, which is, unsurprisingly, something I recommend to all of my friends now. It is a social networking site where people ask questions which can be answered by excellent writers. I could subscribe to any number of topics as I wanted and it didn’t feel like I was “studying English” in this site because it is SO much fun.


2. Improving reading by … *drum rolls* … reading:


Sorry. I wish there was a shortcut around this, but (un)fortunately there isn’t one. The good news is, there is something fun to read about almost everything you can possible think about. So something as simple as embracing the mindset that reading English is way to learn about new things in Google can be extremely useful! Moreover, instead of reading newspapers in Bangla, I switched to English. And started carefully reading a few short stories from newyorker.com (HIGHLY recommend).


3. Talking in English (and ACTUALLY doing it):


Up until 2016, I almost never spoke in Engish with my friends and family. Reason: I was shy to do so. Speaking English was a rare occurence and I knew I had to change that.


Baby steps: First, I just started chatting in English more and more often. Once I became comfortable thinking about mundane matters in English, I initiated English conversations with one or two friends. It made me very embarrassed, though. 😦 But if we’re all so comfy in spoken Bangla despite making so many mistakes in it, why should we treat spoken English differently? The more I spoke in English, the more fluent and confident I got in it huehue.


4. Advanced reading steps::


This is what really stepped up my game dramatically. I mustered the courage to pick up English articles from websites like the economist.com, project-syndicate.org, and nytimes.com on one hand and a dictionary on the other. At first, it took me a lot of time to just understand one paragraph properly. But soon from I could comprehend half of the article and then eventually the entirety of it. Consistently reading just 1 article per day went a longer way than I could have thought. If you can grasp articles of this difficulty, even SAT Reading passages become easy.


5. Utilizing good practice materials:


Getting as comfortable with the exams (such as SAT/TOEFL/IELT) as possible is a crucial test-taking strategy. And toward that goal, I used the following resources to practice:


khanacademy.org/sat (HIGHLY recommend)


blog.prepscholar.com/how-to-get-800-on-sat-reading-10-strategies-by-a-perfect-scorer


cracksat.net (lots of question papers)


Furthermore, let’s talk a little about the reading section of these tests. The format is as such that there is one (or more) passages and a few questions based on those passages. Some suggest to skim through the lines and then go to answering the questions, whereas there are others who recommend directly seeing the questions first and coming back to the necessary portions of the passage(s) accordingly.


While you should practice different strategies by timing yourself to find out what works best for you, I personally benefitted from reading the passage first (read, not skim) with the intention of understanding it, and then going to answering the questions. This is because sometimes skimming first doesn’t help comprehend anything so you spend more time going back to the passage(s) than you would have spent actually reading the passage(s) thoroughly. And I discourage the question-first-passage-second strategy because sometimes the questions will throw in some words that might be present in some lines of the passage(s) which are totally irrelevant to the question and thus might confuse you.


Hence, I like the method of understanding the passage first and then going to questions. This could seem like time-consuming, but you can take a lot of practice tests and increase your speed.


7. Learning vocabulary


I used the book Wordsmart. You can Google and download this book. There are a lot of apps for GRE/TOEFL vocabulary on the Android Play Store which I highly recommend. More about these apps here: huffingtonpost.com/…/7-helpful-study-apps-for-_b_6174330.ht…


Try to use these words while chatting with your friends to retain the new knowledge.


P.S. I want to clarify that this is, by no means, necessarily the best method. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. I was just telling a story of what worked for me.


I hope InShaaAllah this post was helpful to some prospective applicants or anyone interested in learning English. May Allah grant success to everyone in their journeys. ❤
