How to Improve Maths Calculation Skill

As we all Know mathematics is tough subject :) .for those who thinks i'm right, below are some techniques to improve your mathematics calculation skill 

1. Start easy. Don't jump straight in there trying to work out what 235433×95835.344 equals, if you can do that you don't need to read this. Start with really easy addition and subtraction, even if it is patronizing, make sure you can do them quickly.

2. Learn the multiplication tables and find the patterns in them. Knowing the patterns will make multiplication and division of larger numbers much simpler. Repeat these until you can recite them backwards and randomly at anytime. write up to the 12 times table everyday once

3. Visualize what you are doing. Whether you imagine writing the sum out, or count objects, visualizing the calculation can make it easier to solve.

4. Use your fingers. Learn to count to 99 on your fingers and then use this to "store" the number so you don't worry about forgetting about it while calculating a different part of the calculation.

5. Learn shortcuts. There are a lot of these and can make calculations much easier. Look on the internet or ask your teacher to see if there are any shortcut methods for the calculation (or part of the calculation) you are trying to do.

6. Practice regularly. Give yourself a few calculations to do each day, starting easy and gradually getting harder.

7. Don't give up too soon. It will take time to get good at calculations. Persevere and don't reach for the calculator too soon.

8. Challenge yourself. Once you can do the basics quickly and easily give yourself challenges. Stretch your abilities and aim to do the calculations as quickly and accurately as possible.

9. Don't be afraid to reach for a calculator to check your answer if you're unsure. There are very few non-exam/school situations where you will be required to work without a calculator and if you find you're getting them right this will help build confidence.

Tips :-

. Perseverance is key. This will take practice, so don't give up too soon.
. Always be confident on what you are doing.

How to Password-Protect to Your Digital Life

If you're using weak passwords, you're doing so at your peril. Hardening them may seem like an onerous task, but it's nothing compared to the energy you'll have to expend -- not to mention the losses you might incur -- if you allow an important account to be breached. Cut the job down to size by following a few simple password rules of thumb. Start by setting some priorities.

It's no longer acceptable to use dates of birth, pet names and so on for passwords. These easily guessed words were never secure, but it didn't matter much in the past -- quite frankly, who cared if a black hat got into your email account? So what?
However, things are much different today, because our lives are now digitally enveloped. Everything from banking to relationships is now inexorably online.
Here's how to protect your digital life with hardened passwords.

Step 1: Strategic Planning

Determine which accounts to start hardening. Aim to systematically re-password the online accounts related to money first.
This can be quite a project, so start with banks and other valuable Web accounts; progress to email and social networks. End up -- on a rainy day -- rebuilding passwords for minor accounts like loyalty cards.

Step 2: Choose Good Passwords

Vary passwords and create different ones for every account. This is particularly important for any sensitive accounts like banking. Make up passwords by hand using a combination of letters, numerals and characters.
Introduce upper-case letters randomly within words; if you spell words, spell them wrong and use multiple unrelated words. Use numbers in lieu of letters from time to time, for example substitute a zero for an "o."
Alternative methods include thinking of a phrase and taking the first letter of each word -- or variations on that theme.
Tip: Crackers can use computer-driven dictionaries, pattern checking and word list substitutions that can attempt millions of passwords per second.

Step 3: Re-invent the Security Question Answer

Do not directly answer the security question. For example, if the security question requests a mother's maiden name or first school, fabricate them.
Tip: Use the same construction technique as in the previous step -- for example, misspelling your answer to beef things up even more. Just don't forget what the answer is.

Step 4: Two-Step Authentication

Use two-factor authentication if it's offered. This method of protection uses two factors, usually a password (something you know) and a phone or other device (something you have in your possession).
I've written about Google's authentication before. Facebook also offers this method of authentication.

Tip: Don't maintain a password list on a device you're using for two-step authentication.

Step 5: Stay Alert

Be aware of social engineering attempts. These are human interventions that are designed to trick you into giving your password to a criminal. Avoid this problem by never giving out your password.
Tip: Reset a password if you're in any doubt that you may have been tricked.

Step 6: Looking in Gift Horses' Mouths

Add password protection when offered. Laptops and phones can get lost -- or compromised by casual thieves.
It's not just professional crackers that you need to protect yourself from. Laptops are often fenced and resold.

Step 7: Harden Further

Delete emails from new-account senders that include your password. Always change the initial setup password when prompted.
Set parental controls on in-app purchases for your mobile device. This is an area where a password becomes useful in thwarting any game upgrades that can inexplicably and rapidly occur when you lend your iPad to a child for games -- as has happened to me. I am about US$40 poorer than I was before I lent the tablet, because I left restrictions open.
Tip: Apple's device "Restrictions" are in Settings. Android controls in-app purchases in the Google Play store. Both let you set passwords, which you should not share with kids.

Step 8: Repeat

Do it all again when you've finished. Password cracking is all about time -- how many attempts at a guess can be made over a period.
The more often the password is changed, the less likely it is to be cracked.

How To Change Oil and Flatten Tyre | Jump Start a Dead Battery in car

Why There is Need for Oil Changes ?

Like everything, automobiles also require maintenance. One of them is oil Changes. Regular oil changes ensure longer engine life of an automobile. For automobiles with frequent short trips where there is no chance to warm up completely, oil changes becomes more important because acid and moisture buildup does not have a chance to burn off. There are new engines that normally run very hot. Missing even a single oil change can cause an engine to develop sludge which can cause engine damage early on.
Modern oils generally contain detergents and additives that are designed to protect against sludge formation but if you regularly do a lot of short trips viz. during rush hour traffic, engine heat will eventually break down these additives hence stop protecting car engine. Thus, best way to protect your car, with regular oil changes. Here, is a full guide on how to change Car oil.

How To Change Car Oil – 10 Simple Steps

1. Keep yourself equipped all your materials: new oil, filter, oil pan, pliers, screwdriver and correct size wrench.
2. Lift the car safely by using the jack stand on the frame of the car.

4. After pouring out the used oil, put plug back in and tighten it.
5. Locate the oil filter and remove it.
6. Put on the new oil filter in place.
7. Now, remove Jack stands and lower your car.
8. Add 4 half quarts of oil.
9. Start your car and let it run for 10-20 seconds.
10. Check if required quantity is there or not. Check oil and add correct amount.

How to Change a Flat (Punctured) Tyre – 10 Step Guide

    1. 1. Move to the side of the road and turn on hazard lights.
      2. Put on the E-Brake and get your tool trunk out.
      3. Get tools out of the trunk (jack, wrench, tyre). Get spare tyre out from the trunk.
      4. Loosen lugnuts slowly.
      5. Check for a good place on the frame to lift up the car using Jack stand.
      1. 6. Take lugnuts off and take off the flat tyre.
        7. Put the spare tire on. Tighten down all the lugnuts.
        8. Double check lugnuts.
        9. Now, lower the jack.
        10. Put the flat tire and tools back to the trunk, remove E-Brake, turn off hazard lights, and check for traffic before pulling back onto the road.

    Data, Information and Knowledge

    Data by itself is useless. An MP3 file is garbage without software to render it into a song, which is a kind of information. Ditto with your bank balance and the video you shot over the holiday, or the formula or source code for a new product. Instead of making data security our top priority, wouldn't we be better off focusing on data transformation?

    I still see far too many examples of content confusing the ideas of data and information. Sometimes it seems a writer is simply trying to avoid being redundant when using data and information in the same sentence to mean the same thing. Of course, they are different, and the result is unnecessary confusion.

    I just wrote a paper for a European law journal on the topic, and I learned more about it than is healthy for one person. The piece will be out in August. Generally, I admire the effort the Europeans are making to get it right, though they are less concerned with data and information per se than they are with privacy and security. These things all intersect but in sometimes unpredictable ways. The more I think about things, the less I am sure of -- and the more questions I have.

    The European parliament is trying to figure out laws that protect individual rights to privacy, which necessarily affect what data is kept and what is not. That makes sense, and it sounds simple, but how do you do that? Does a person walking on a street have a right to privacy and thus a right to determine how you use a crowd photo?

    What if a corporation like Google or a government takes the photo? Are we to prevent photos, based on the premise that someone someday might do something to a person in one of the photos based on the picture? From there it gets silly, but there are some concrete situations that are nothing to laugh at.

    The Persistence of Memory

    Take the case of a nurse in Connecticut who was arrested for possessing a small amount of pot. The case was dismissed when she agreed to take some drug education courses, according to an article in The New York Times. In the good old days, that would have been the end of it, because according to Connecticut law -- and the laws in many other states -- her record was wiped clean with the dismissal. Under Connecticut law, she can even testify under oath that she has never been arrested now that the record has been cleared.

    That all makes good sense to me. It might not be factually correct, but these expungement laws are one of the fictions we create in modern life to keep the world spinning. However, with the Internet, there's no such thing as expungement, and a search still comes up with the original news article that -- while true when it was published -- is now false.

    It matters, because this nurse can't find a job any more, thanks to the simple expedient of prospective employers doing a rudimentary search on every new job applicant. What to do? She's suing the news organizations that wrote the story for slander, but the story was true when it was reported. Yikes!
    The Internet and our modern world are full of examples like this. Society used to be able to conveniently forget small indiscretions, and we all got on with life. Now that's being taken away, without anyone even giving permission or any new law being adopted. The Internet is the defacto repository of all things digital about us -- but should it be? The Europeans take all this very seriously, and perhaps we should too.

    Information Alchemy

    It seems to me that the biggest issue we have with data and information today is not data security, even though lots of it gets stolen (I'm talking to you People's Liberation Army unit 61398). In fact, I think we've put too much emphasis on physically securing data and given too little thought to how it is transformed into information.

    After all, data by itself is useless. An MP3 file is garbage without software to render it into a song, which is a kind of information. Ditto with your bank balance and the video you shot over the holiday, or the formula or source code for a new product.

    Wouldn't we be better off focusing on data transformation? A new photo sharing service, SnapChat, takes this approach by delivering photos that disintegrate after 10 seconds. That's far from ideal for most applications, but it's on the right track.

    Generally, I think data ought to be handled like milk in a supermarket; it ought to have an outdate after which it automatically becomes archival. You might be able to access archival data, but transforming it back into its original information content would have to be restricted in some way.
    Look, we can still access information about various flat Earth theories, but we all know this is archival and historic and no longer scientific. Some of us can still take it seriously if we want to, but we can't take it to the bank or whatever -- you know what I mean.

    We don't have anything like that for data yet -- something that says this does not yield not the information it once did. On a parallel path, if we were better able to control the conversion of data to information so that only the data's owners could de-encrypt it, might we have less data theft and the loss of intellectual property that goes with it?

    If any of this makes sense, then it's not data security we should focus on as much as secure data conversion or transformation into information -- those are different issues with different approaches. When you think of it this way, the differences between data and information are starkly clear. It gives us all good reason to consciously choose the right words to convey our meaning.

    Facebook builds a tool to manage data on both facilities and servers

    Facebook is blowing up the data center infrastructure management space by joining two kinds of data that typically lives in separate silos — information on the building and information about the hardware.

    Remember that leap-second incident that threw much of the internet last summer? Facebook does. Its servers suddenly hit 100 percent CPU utilization, and as a result, a breaker failed at a site Facebook’s leases in Virginia, bringing down a few rows of gear — something like 300 racks.

    The event hardly threw off Facebook’s entire footprint. But it did get engineers thinking more about writing software that integrates third-party building management software with home-cooked tools for monitoring server performance, Tom Furlong, Facebook’s vice president of site operations, said in an interview during the Datacenter Dynamics Converged event in San Francisco on Friday.

    The combined system can take into account outdoor information such as temperature and humidity, power consumption for an entire building, and also data on CPU, storage and memory.

    Over the past few months Facebook has been rolling out the new data center infrastructure management (DCIM) program and a new cluster-planning system for visualizing all the data. The plan is to roll out the program more widely this year.

    The tack Facebook is taking helps in a couple of ways. The software can reduce the amount of time engineers spend to figure out how to rearrange equipment to improve performance. How big of a difference can it make? “Thirty minutes instead of 12 hours worth of drawings and other things,” Furlong said.

    It also can contribute to the noble cause of getting Facebook to squeeze the most efficiency out of its existing data centers — and, by extension, precluding the need for yet another data center.

    Furlong expected the company to talk more about the system at the next Open Compute Summit in January. He wasn’t sure if the company would make the tool available for public consumption in a similar way that it has disclosed hardware designs in the Open Compute Project. The hitch is that the combined program incorporates some existing internal Facebook monitoring tools, which the company might not want to expose.

    But regardless of whether that happens, public discussion of the initiative — Furlong talked it up in general terms before data center aficionados during a session at the Friday conference — can give people an idea of the next logical step for improving efficiency with existing hardware and being smarter about how and when to bring in new equipment that best fits workloads.

    Banking System Basics | History and Study of RBI |

    What is Banking

    A bank is financial institution that provides banking and other financial services to their customers such as accepting deposits and providing loans. A banking system is referred to as system provided by the bank which offers cash management services for customers, reporting the transactions of their accounts and portfolios, throughout the day.
    The bank safeguards the money and valuables and provide loans, credit, and payment services, such as checking accounts, money orders and cashier’s cheques. The banks also offer investment and insurance products.
    Need of the Banks
    1. 1. To provide security to the savings of customers.
      2. To control the supply of money and credit.
      3. To encourage public confidence in the working of the financial system, increase saving speedily and efficiently.
      4. To avoid focus of financial powers in the hands of a few individuals and institutions.
      5. To set equal norms and conditions to all types of customers.

    History of Banking System in India

    The first Bank in India, called The General Bank of India was established in the year 1786. The East India Company established The Bank of Bengal/Calcutta(1809), Bank of Bombay(1840) and Bank of Madras(1843). These three banks units are also known as Presidency Banks. The next bank was Bank of Hindustan which was established in 1870. The Allahabad Bank was established in 1865, was the first bank completely run by Indians. Punjab National Bank Ltd. was set up in 1894, with its headquarters at Lahore.
    Between 1906 and 1913, Bank of India, Central Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Indian Bank, and Bank of Mysore was set up. The Imperial Bank came into existence on the 27th January, 1921 by the Imperial Bank of India Act of 1920, where all Presidency Banks amalgamated. The Imperial Bank was the biggest bank until 1935. On 1 April 1935, the Reserve Bank of India was established under the reserve bank of India act.

    Reserve Bank of India

    RBI is the central bank of India. Its head quarters is in Mumbai. It was originally constituted as a shareholder’s bank with a capital of Rs.5 crores. The entire share capital was contributed private shareholders with the exception of the nominal value of Rs 2.2 lakh subscribed by the central bank. It was set up on the recommendations of the Hilton Young Commission. Initially it was located in Kolkata. It moved to Mumbai in 1937. After independence, the reserve bank of India was nationalized.

    Functions of the reserve bank

    1. Note issue – Under Section 22 of the Reserve Bank of India Act, the Bank has the sole right to issue bank notes of all denominations.
    2. Banker to government – The second important function of the reserve bank of India is to act as government banker, agent and adviser. RBI carries out banking operations (e.g. to receive and make payments, carry cash reserves) for all governments except J&K—acts as advisor to govt on all monetary and banking matters.
    3. Custodian of foreign exchange reserve – Besides maintaining the rate of exchange of the rupee, the Reserve Bank has to act as the custodian of India’s reserve of international currencies.
    4. Banker’s bank and Lender of last resort – The scheduled banks can borrow from the Reserve Bank of India on the basis of eligible securities or get financial accommodation in times of need or stringency. Banks have been asked to keep cash reserves equal to 3 percent of their aggregate deposit liabilities.
    5. Controller of credit – The Reserve Bank of India is the controller of credit i.e. it has the power to influence the volume of credit created by banks in India. It can do so through changing the Bank rate or through open market operations.
    6. Bank of settlement and clearance – As the reserve bank keeps the cash balance of all commercial banks it is easy for the bank to act as settlement bank or clearing house for other banks.
    7. Information and research functions – The reserve bank undertakes collection and dissemination of information and conducts research in this field. The bank issues several periodical publications, which attempt to explain and assess the significance of economic developments in the country.

    Some Important Milestones

    1. 1. 1935- The Reserve Bank of India is established on April 1, and starts functioning.
      2. 1947- The Reserve Bank of India goes national, as India gains independence.
      3. 1949- The Reserve Bank of India is nationalized.
      4. 2004- RBI puts in a modern payment and settlement system, strives to further strengthen the financial sector.
  • Structure of RBI

    Some Important Terms used by RBI

    1. Bank Rate: Rate of rediscount at which the RBI discounts the first class bills of exchange brought by the banks.
      Repo Rate: Injection of liquidity by the RBI is termed as ” Repo Rate” . This was introduced in Dec. 1992 and Reverse Repo Rate in Nov. 1996. RBI buys Govt. Securities for a short period usually a fortnight, with an agreement to sell it later. Thus repo rate is a short-term money market instrument to stabilize short term liquidity in the economy.
      Reverse Repo Rate: Repo Rate is the rate at which the RBI lends to commercial banks where as the Reverse Repo Rate is the rate at which the RBI borrows from the commercial banks against securities for a very short period. Repo and Reverse Repo rates are used as policy instruments for day-to-day liquidity management under the liquidity adjustment facility.
      Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR): It refers to the percentage of net demand and time deposits which the scheduled commercial banks have to keep with RBI at zero interest Rate as per RBI act 1934.
      Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR): It refers to the percentage of net demand and time deposits which the scheduled commercial banks have to keep with themselves. i.e. by purchasing Govt. Securities or in the form of cash or gold as per Banking Regulation Act 1949, Sec 24. SLR is a mechanism used by Commercial Banks for providing credit to the Govt.
      Public Debt: When the government is unable to meet its public expenditure through public revenue, its resort to public debt, public debt can be raised with in the country or out side the country.
      Public Revenue: It is the income of government through various sources like taxes, fees, profits of the state enterprise and grants.

    What is Online Marketing?

    Online Marketing can also be referred to as e-marketing. Basically this is the concept of marketing via internet. This has been a modern concept that many businesses that are competitive are channeling their attention on.
    Online Marketing is not only covers marketing and sales but also a wide range of activities which include; supply of materials management, employee’s work procedures, financial operations and advertising of the company’s products. Potential customers are able to get all this information via internet from a particular targeted organization. This therefore helps to make work easier for employees, suppliers, distributors and more importantly customers.
    For online marketing to be efficient, an organization is expected to erect a website where a customer can easily access all the company’s products and services under one place. Organizations have gone to a level of hiring a permanent web designer who not only designs the website but also monitor how it runs.
    Online Marketing has gained fame over the few years as people become more and more computer literate. It has also been realized that most of products sold via internet tend to be less expensive than those obtained from retail shops. This has therefore increased the use of internet by customers. This pool of internet customers who basically have no time to go window shopping for products has made organizations to switch to online marketing in an aim of capturing this customer pool.
    Other reasons why businesses have opted for online marketing is that the world has been made by internet to be like a village. One is able to access information regarding a certain product from a far region easily. In an effort to increase market base, business have set aside provisions in their budgets to be channeled to online marketing.
    As more and more inventions and modern things come up, people are opting for convenient and less time consuming things and online marketing offers them such a platform whereby they are able to select products they want and even get them delivered to the door step without them going over to the respective retail shop.
    For this online marketing strategy to have effect on revenue and customer attraction, there are several things that need to be made efficient like having all details of the organization present in the website like contact information as it will enhance customers’ loyalty and confidence that if something goes wrong like delivery of a product purchased, their problem can be addressed.
    Other than having a website, online marketing can be made efficient by the use of keywords suggestion tools. This will enhance the company tap a lot of potential customers.

Wi-Fi is the short form of Wireless Fidelity.
    It was only used in place of 2.4GHz at first but it advanced to include all types of networks. Wi-Fi engages with many applications and equipment’s like video game gadgets, home networks, mobile phones as well as major operating systems.

It has to have an access point where it broadcasts a wireless network which devices detect.
    Wi-Fi has four main components; networking gateway; which is between high-speed access connection and the wireless network, wireless network; which connects the devices being used with the high frequency radio waves, high-speed access; a very fast internet connection commonly called a broadband and a wireless end user; these are the customers who have internet enabled devices.

    How to Learn Simple English

    Learning to speak basic English is the first step to communicating in many of the world's global circles. With today's technology, you have a virtual world of resources at your fingertips. Get started today with these tips and soon you'll be on your way to speaking the world's lingua franca.


    1. 1 Familiarize yourself with the alphabet. If your native language is Latinate, this will be very easy. If it's not, start with the basic sounds of each letter. There are 26 and there's a song to help you remember.

      • Unlike many Germanic and Romance languages, English letters don't necessarily correlate with one specific sound (this is why English is regarded as one of the hardest languages to learn). Know that the vowels (and certain consonants in certain environments) have two or three sounds, depending on the word. For example, "A" sounds different in fatherpath, and say.
    2. 2
      Get a teacher.  
    3. number one resource will be a real live person that you can ask your questions to. He or she will be able to provide you with material and tasks to improve your skills. They'll also demand that you speak -- a skill that is pretty hard to learn on your own.
      • Headway, Face2Face, and Cutting Edge are all popular and reputable lines of books.[2] But if you have a teacher, they'll be able to point you to (or even give you) a book that may be more catered to your interests. If you're looking for simple business English or simply conversational English, you may be better off with a book of a narrower focus.
      • The best teacher is someone who's actually a teacher. Just because someone can speak the language does not mean they'd be a good teacher. Try to find someone who has a bit of experience tutoring or supervising others, if not teaching. It is a skill and, to top it off, more weathered teachers will probably have more resources for you.
    4. 3
      Go online. The internet is jam packed with resources to fill your time, bettering your language skills. Any English website is good, but you may find you're happier with ones geared to your abilities. There are many simple English websites or websites for recommended easy reads.
      • Simple Wikipedia is a great source for information on anything put into language that's easy to understand.[3] With this site, you can study the things that interest you while simultaneously learning English. Breaking News English[4] and BBC Learning English[5] are good sites for news stories, too.
      • There are also sites that can give you information on good material. GoodReads has an Easy English shelf that has lists of books that are made just for your level.[6]
    5. 4
      Go to the library. Sometimes the internet isn't portable (or you just don't want to stare at a screen anymore). Books you can hold in your hands are just as good for learning than the internet. You can read at your discretion and make notes in the margins to ease the path to a bigger vocabulary.
      • Don't be afraid to start with children's books. The language is short and to the point; what's more, the books are short, too, and good for a squirrel-like attention span. You can start as simple as you want and work your way up the age groups.
      • If you have a book you know by heart, grab the English translation. Since you know the book so well (provided you know how to read English script), it'll be faster to translate and follow the plot points.


    1. 1
      Get a penpal. Talking to a person in an English speaking country can be an incredibly fun and exciting adventure to start on. They'll be able to tell you about their culture, their customs, and give you a real path to the English speaking world. And getting mail is always a pick-me-up!
      • Students of the World[7] and PenPal World[8] are both good online resources to finding a penpal. You can either use snailmail or email with your new writing friend. Though email goes much quicker, snailmail can be a lot more personal and exciting.
    2. 2
      Keep a journal. Though you won't be able to correct your own mistakes, you will be able to keep up your vocabulary and discover the words you don't know (and then look them up!). If you don't use words, you're likely to lose them -- keeping a journal daily keeps the words and phrases fresh in your head.
      • This journal can take on a number of forms. It can either be an English journal devoted to other's musings -- where you write down song lyrics, poems, and quotes in English that you like -- or it can be writing of your own: thoughts, venting, gratitude, or just devoted to one specific topic.
    3. 3
      Start labeling. This tactic is good for writing and recall. Take everything in your home and label it in its English name. The goal is to start thinking in English; at home, you'll be more likely to think, "What's on TV?" if "TV" is right in front of you.
      • Don't stop at what's in front of you (bedchairTVlamprefrigerator) -- go inside your cupboards and fridge. If there's a place you keep the dishes, label it. If there's a place you always keep the milk, label it. It'll help keep you organized, too!

    Speaking & Listening

    1. 1
      Join a conversation group. If you have a college, university, or language school in your area, odds are they have organizations you may be able to get involved in. You'll meet other people just like you who are just looking to better their skills.
      • Before you start conversing, you'll be well off if you know the basics:
        • Numbers (1-100)
        • Time (numbers 1-59 plus o'clockpast, and till)
        • Days of the week (SundayMondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFriday,Saturday)
        • Introductory phrases
          • Hello! My name is...
          • How are you?
          • How old are you? I'm X years old.
          • What do you like? I like...
          • How is your family?
    2. 2
      Watch videos. As always, YouTube is a great resource for knowledge and information. There are hundreds of videos dedicated to ESL learners that keep a steady pace and are all about expanding vocabulary and grammar.
      • You don't have to limit yourself to ESL videos. As long as it's in English, if it's a topic you enjoy, you may find it useful. Try to find videos that have captions so you can read along. Many music videos have lyrics with them, making it easier to follow and keep up.
    3. 3
      Listen to English programs. Turn the captions on (if you have to) and tune into a popular English show or the news. Though you may not be able to catch most of what they're saying, the more you study, the more you'll understand and the more you'll be able to notice your progress. Podcasts are good sources, too.
      • Keep in mind that when you're listening, each speaker has an accent. Some speakers will be easier to understand than others. If you're interested in American English, listen to American speakers. For British English, stick to European programs. People speak English all over the world and there are hundreds of variable accents.
        • This is good news for you! Regardless of your accent (in general), most native speakers will be able to understand you. Since English comes in so many varieties, native speakers' ears are used to the differences.


    • Ask your friends if they're learning English, too. If they are, spend 20 minutes every day only conversing in English. It may take an effort initially, but eventually it'll become old hat and something you two look forward to.
    • Buy a good English dictionary. If you're translating or simply run across a word you don't know, you'll be able to look it up in seconds. Or -- just download an app.
    • Start small. Don't stress yourself out -- languages take years to get good at. Trying a bit every day is guaranteed to improve your skills.
