Set your time-table

Before starting your self-study, set a time table that includes various aspects of learning English. Include a little grammar exercise, a little reading exercise, a little listening session and a little speaking exercise. Don’t focus on one aspect or you will bore yourself. Dedicate twenty minutes to solving grammar puzzles, twenty minutes to listening news/interviews, another few minutes for reading a newspaper/book and so on.

Learning is not fun unless you enjoy it. Therefore, find out what motivates you and incorporate in your learning to get better results. Most of us like watching movies and TV shows. Why not watch English shows and improve our vocabulary. One you can read the subtitles and understand how native speakers are using it in the context and two you can learn the tone of their communication. Similarly, you can describe a picture and improve on how you express in English.

Solve online English quizzes

Study every day

It’s a Sunday, let’s cut a slack and not study. This kind of excuses may hamper your self-study schedule. If you are in no mood of a serious session, learn the fun way. Chat with your friends in English and practice what you have learnt in a casual and stress free way.


This is one of the most important tips when you do self-study. The more you practice speaking English, the more you will learn the language. Speak English whenever you get a chance, and speak with confidence. Don’t fret over speaking wrong English as only practice can make you perfect.
