Here are Tony’s 3 tips for improving your English:

Ask yourself, What do I want to say? And to whom?  It’s easy to become overwhelmed by vocabulary, so keep it simple.  Start by learning what you need – not by trying to learn every single word.

Learn a little, Use a lot. Practice using small phrases with many different people and learn from the responses you get.  Connect your new vocabulary naturally.  This is the opposite of rote memorization.

Language teaches itself. It is easier to learn grammar from language, than language from grammar.  Grammar patterns will become apparent when you begin learning, so don’t try to learn every grammar rule in the beginning.  Learn to speak first, and the grammar will come.
