Tired Of Getting A Low Score In Your English Tests?

Article by Mary Simmers

The title was actually what was asked to me by one of my best English teachers. I was flunking my English language class in high school because it was indeed too boring. The fact that I had to stare at the blackboard, trying to absorb all those lessons made me uninterested in the language.

I guess I’m not alone with that kind of feeling especially for other students like my age before. Besides, why do I have to learn English anyway? This is the first thing that comes into our mind when listening to English courses at school.

Unfortunately, we all have to. In this modern world, English is the universal language for business and commerce, even with politics! English is used by a lot of people especially when you are up to dealing with your business or when you are at work. Professionals need to talk and write in English and that is one of the signs of formality.

So whether you like it or not, you will have to do something to catch up with that failing grade of yours. Studying is always the first solution that one can come up when it comes to academic problems.

However, the problem relies with how the student is studying. A student who is reading a book while facing the T.V will never understand what he or she reads. When you study, use a room without any televisions, radios or other objects that can distract you. As long as you are surrounded with the things that catch your attention, then you will never learn to what you are going to study. Once you started to study all by yourself, use the dictionary, the thesaurus and any available resources available to you.

If you have a laptop or a PC, you can try using grammar checkers in order to correct yourselves if in case you want to improve your vocabulary. Read English books. Practice writing English sentences and then check it to see if you have improved. These things help you a lot in acquiring the knowledge you would like to have.

Make it a habit to list down difficult words that you might have encountered while in the course of reading a book or answering your English homework. Study hard and be a dedicated student. If you are determine enough, you will surely learn with all the things that help you come through it.

Of course, success in your grades in English and all other subjects is dependent on how much you really are passionate with your work. But in any case, determination and perseverance can sometimes be the key to make our studies successful.

Keep on reading English books when in doubt; you will learn a lot from them indeed. Also, do not limit yourself with the dictionary. You can also use the thesaurus, which will help you in finding the right synonym for a certain word.s. do the things that you know it is right for your studies. Never stop learning, be eager enough to learn more and more.
