Don't leave it until the last minute. While some students do seem to thrive on last-minute cramming, it's widely accepted that (for most of us) this is not the best way to approach an exam.

When we learn our native language, first we listen, then we speak, then we read and finally we write. Listening, speaking, reading and writing are the four language skills we need to develop for complete communication.


Listening

It plays a very important part in learning any language. Effective listening ensures understanding and it helps improve accuracy when speaking , among other things.


Speaking 

It is often the hardest of the four language skills, but as soon as you can speak a little English there are lots of ways to improve quickly and have tons of fun.


Reading

It is a process of the brain and it takes time to develop: your mind has to attach meaning to the words, phrases and expressions represented by symbols, plus get to understand the grammar and structure of the language used in the passage to read. If you develop strong reading skills, it’ll be very helpful to your future. 


Writing

Even though it may be intimidating to a lot of people, anyone can get used to writing with a little discipline and a willingness to learn.
