English is one area that can be easy yet difficult at the same time.

Newspapers, Magazines & Internet

Newspapers and internet can be another helpful resource while you find yourself juggling up with those comprehensions and heavy words. A regular habit of reading any newspaper is always beneficial in the long run. We recommend you to read The Hindu, The Economic Times or The Mint. Begin with small news articles and then shift to the big ones. Magazines like Business Line, The Economist, Business World, Business Week etc. too help you in the same way. Make sure you keep a dictionary handy at all times. Of course, through the context you will somewhere get a hint of the meaning of that hard word, but it is a great habit to keep looking for its correct meaning alongside. Also, maintain a diary of all these words you come across.

To make all this a little bearable, why not play a ‘Guessing Game’? Try to guess the meaning of that difficult word in your head and then find out its dictionary meaning. Reward yourself if you get it right. But don’t be disheartened if you fail. After all, it’s all a part of the learning process, isn’t it?

News Channels

Then, there are some candidates who give credit to the English news channels and other programmes for their improved performance in English. Well, not very sure if we should be adding Games of Thrones or Friends here. Channels like CNBS, BBC, etc. not just work good for your speaking skills, but do wonders while you are writing too.
