 Ten Ways To Speak Better English
1.   Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Be confident. People can only correct your mistakes when they hear you make them.

Practice every day but make sure you practice all the 4 core skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. They all need to be worked on for you to improve.

Tune your radio to an English channel in your house. Even if you are not actively listening to it, you will still be training your ears.

  Sing your heart out! Show the world your beautiful voice! Learn English songs and sing along with them to improve fluency and intonation.

  Carry cue cards with you. These are small cards which you can write new words on. You can pull them out and look at them whenever you a free minute.

   English has many irregular verbs. Try and learn them all it will make speaking in English so much easier.

   You will find words easier to remember if you try to remember an example sentence using that word rather the word on its own.

  Learn English with a friend. You'll have someone you can practice with and you can motivate each other to study.

  Give yourself a long term goal. Focus on working towards it.

  Use English whenever you can. It's as simple as that!
Being a successful flight attendant is a lot more difficult than most people realize.  That's why Excellent English runs an "English for Cabin Crew" course designed for people in the aviation industry who want to improve their communication skills, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammatical accuracy.

It follows the realtime working routines of flight attendants from pre-flight briefings to disembarkation, from 'gate to gate' as well as the operational procedures of the cabin crew and their progress through the different stages of both long-haul and short-haul flights.

It aims to give flight attendants confidence in using the right English at every stage of the job in hand and makes life in the air that much easier.  Drop as an e-mail if you'd like to learn more.

Many parents have heard about phonics but don't really understand what they are all about.  That's why many of them still have questions about phonics such as: Does my child need to learn phonics to learn to read? (No, but it helps make doing that so much easier - especially when it comes to pronunciation).  Is phonics most effective if taught at a certain age? (It is useful at all ages but the sooner you learn the better really). 

Words are made up from small units of sound called phonemes. Phonics teaches children to be able to listen carefully and identify the phonemes that make up each word.

This helps children to learn to read words and to spell words more easily.

In the past people argued that because the English language is so tricky, there was no point teaching children phonics. Now, most people agree that these tricky bits mean that it is even more important that we teach phonics and children learn it clearly and systematically.

A written language is basically a kind of a code. Teaching phonics is just teaching children to crack that code. Children learn the simple bits first and then easily progress to get the hang of the trickier bits.
