Here are the links from this lesson:
*** Tip 1: Get the Audiobook ***
Listening to English will dramatically improve your ability to have conversations. Also, if you read and listen to stories at the same time, you’ll learn how to pronounce words in English (and sentences!).
*** Tip 2: Find Interesting Books ***
Find stories that engage you. A good story will open you up to new language and you’ll want to read more.
*** Tip 3: Don’t Make it Too Difficult ***
If the language is too hard, you won’t learn much English. It’s not enjoyable reading something that is too complex. Therefore, find books that suit you and your level.
*** Tip 4: Join a Book Club ***
Join other people who are learning English and talk about particular books. This will help you better understand what you’re reading and you’ll get more practice speaking in English.
*** Tip 5: Test the Book First ***
Instead of just buying a book, test it first. Read a few pages to see if you’re going to like it. You can do this on https://www.amazon.com by clicking “Look Inside This Book.” Read a few pages to see if it’s going to help you.
*** Tip 6: Stories Are Everywhere ***
You can read or listen to stories in lots of places. There are numerous podcasts that have people telling stories. Ted.com is a great place too. Oh, and check out my other lessons (link above)!
