One of the best ways for a student to learn something new is to apply it to real life situations. When a student is learning English, the best way to get use to the language is to actually do some real homework in it. This doesn’t mean just doing cramming study hours each night. It means actually taking action by going to class and trying to learn something. There is a difference between learning through textbooks and learning by doing.
When a student goes to class each week, they are learning textbook information. They’re not being introduced to new words or to concepts that the student can use in the coursework they will be doing. In order for a student to gain a success, they need to learn to make their own classroom happen. They need to be active participants in class. So what can a student do to improve their homework in English?
One of the best things a student can do when they learn English is to practice what they already know. When a student does his or her homework in English, they usually just read the assignment or copy the answer to their workbook. They don’t practice their reading comprehension skills. This is why a lot of students leave class before they’ve fully understood an assignment. They don’t learn to think in their native language. When a student only reads with the intention of doing homework, they miss out on the fun of learning.
Another way to improve the chances of learning what a student should be learning in the classroom is to get into the habit of asking questions. A good student should ask about topics that are unclear to them. This allows them to develop reading comprehension skills.
When a student is in class, they should raise their hand to ask a question. This shows that the student is participating in the class discussion. When a student raises their hand to ask a question, the other students have to step up to give the student time to answer. The teacher never knows what the student will want to answer. If the student had raised her hand without having any idea of the topic, then the teacher may assume she is looking for help and give her a correction. If the student was able to raise her hand without needing assistance, then the teacher knows the student has started to develop reading comprehension skills.
I did my homework in English, because I wanted to learn English and improve my reading comprehension skills. As a result of this, I learned a lot more than just how to read. I learned about grammar and word usage, and about the differences between the British and American English. Because I was able to learn about the different words and grammatical forms while learning how to read, I was better able to learn how to speak the language. Now that I speak English, I can tell the difference between a British and American English sentence.
Although I didn’t get into the top level of reading comprehension skills when I did my homework in English, I am happy that I accomplished this goal. The skills that I learned prepared me for college and helped me gain a better understanding of how to read. I am now well on my way to having the career in the language that I always dreamed of. Even if I never fully developed my reading comprehension skills, I am very glad that I learned as much as I did. As a result, I am now very competent at the intermediate and advanced levels of reading and writing in English.
