Dear Parag Thosar,

Without strong foundation in the knowledge of the basic, it will be Pyrrhic victory to go ahead. So, learn the basic from a person who is well versed in English. Allot some time, so that you will reap the benefits in your future. If you hesitate to take initiatives, your future will not take you to any higher places either in your profession or in you social life. Having a strong foundation in the basic is the secret of success in any field. The more you go up, the more you will realize the significance of the basic knowledge. So, take all steps to learn the basic. You are not alone to raise such this question-

Then follow these methods mentioned below to make yourself familiarize with English.

1. Read aloud and slow any News Paper. Go as slow as possible to understand the meaning behind what you read.

2. You can choose any Children Books which may contain many Parables and Moral Stories. Reading such stories would give you better understanding of the words. This way, you can improve your vocabulary.

3. Prepare your own dictionary with the words which you master every day.

4. Go through this dictionary once in a week so that you will recall the meanings of these words in a better manner.

5. Every time you go through this dictionary, visualize the meaning of those words. For example: For the word hallucination, you should imagine what the word actually means. This visualization method will make you understand the minute difference between similar words such as consent and permission.

6. Construct your own sentences using the words which you have noted in your dictionary.

7. Then use those words in your daily conversation with your friends and in your written communications.

8. This way, become sensitive to new words.

9. If you follow this method for the next few weeks, then using new words will become your spontaneous habit.

10. Never hesitate to read aloud. If you’re shy of others, you will only be only a victim. So, never, never hesitate to take initiative.

11. My wishes to you. Let you master English just in few weeks.
