ENGLISH BY MY OWN. Tip #1. Some strategies you can apply to improve your English skills are watching your favorite movie in English and repeating the dialogues after your favorite characters. You can also listen to tv programs, series, documentaries, videos, tv programs, conferences, news articles, reports, among others in English and make an effort to understand some words. Full your ears with English words. The use of subtitles is useful too. The idea is that you relate pronunciation to what you see in subtitles (word and pronunciation), to relate what people say to what or how they act.
