HAVE A GOAL
To have a defined goal to focus will make you a better student and mostly, you will learn a lot about your inner self. You will discover which tools can grant you faster results.
For example, you can set a goal to write an essay once a week with at least 5 new words. This will help a lot to improve your vocabulary and grammar.
USE THE BEST TOOLS
It doesn’t matter if the student tries hard enough when the right tools are not available. Especially if you have a limited amount of time to accomplish your goal. So why not use the weapons that will deliver to you better outcomes in shorter periods of time?
English Class On Your Browser
Have you thought how great would be to read an English blog post on the web and understand everything that is written? Most people can speak a very decent English but when it comes to reading, they fail. Why is that? Well, I think it brings us down to a lack of vocabulary.
An enriched vocabulary is a key to everything! It will improve your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Once you are familiar with a new word, you will easily recognize it during a listening test and moreover, use it in a proper manner in your speech.
So today, I am going to talk about a great little plugin I spotted called Power Thesaurus.
It works by giving you equivalent and antonym for the words that you have no clue what it means. Just select the word in doubt and a small popup window will float giving you the answers. Simple, fast and clean!
The plugin works on Chrome and runs smoothly without compromising your browsing speed.
In addition, you are able to search any meaning just by clicking on the plugin icon that lays on the top right corner of your browser. Its settings are easy and all you need to do is choose between how many words you would like the results to give you, show synonyms & antonyms together or just synonyms or antonyms. Pretty neat, huh?
Power Thesaurus is a free service that can be accessed thru their web page here.
I hope you can make a good use of it and improve your English!
