Some examples: Alexa… Where is Chuck Norris? High five! Who’s on first? Simon says, ‘I love Bew’. Speak like Yoda. Tell me a joke/something interesting/a love story. Sing me a song. Play rock, paper, scissors. Knock, Knock. Can you bark? Which came first: chicken or egg? Talk like a pirate. Flatter me. How many kilometers are in a mile? What is the value of Pi? Play 100.3 What does rhyme mean?
Try as much as possible not to translate your thoughts and sentences into English, but think directly in English.
To do so, you should avoid using online translators, such as Google Translator and WordReference, but take advantage of monolingual dictionaries like The FreeDictionary, Dictionary.com, and Snappy Words
Visual dictionaries are dictionaries that use pictures to illustrate the meaning of words. They are also very useful because they help you to think in English, too.
Install or change the default display language of your operating system from your native language to English. If you use Windows 10, open the settings windows, Time & Language, Region & Language, Add a language.
If you use GNU/Linux, you can change the language of both the operating system and all the applications. It depends on your distro how to set it. If you are using Ubuntu, go to System Settings, Language & Region, Language and select English (United States).
There are also many applications that let you choose the language during the installation process. Mozilla Firefox allows you to install many extensions that are very useful for learning English. Once you have launched Mozilla Firefox, select Tools, and then, Add-ons.
Firefox offer personalized recommendations. Click Tools, Add-ons, Recommendations, and install a recommended add-on by clicking the + Add to Firefox button. There’s also a Find more add-ons button you can click and search for other extensions.
It is very difficult or impossible to achieve a good level of English or any other language without talking to native speakers. You may enrol in an academy, have private lessons, learn it at your school or travel abroad.
Another option is a language exchange. You meet someone for a few hours per week. You both speak your native language for part of the time and English for the rest of the time.
Why is it a good idea? You will learn the language of everyday life in a relaxed atmosphere. I mean, the informal expressions (I gotta leave now; Hi guys, what’s up?), idioms (I can’t make up my mind, someone has to help me; I’m glad the cat didn’t get your tongue), and slang (Who blew off? Oh, you cheeky monkey!) that native speakers use all the time. You can get to know people and expand your social circle. The limit is always your time, not your money. There are several options: face to face conversation; correspondence (a pen-pal is someone you write letters to and receive letters from and come to know by friendly correspondence); or just chat with people using Discord, WhatsApp, Viber, Skype, Messenger, etc.
Making friends online can be one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to improve your English. You can join specific, interested-based communities, be active in those communities daily, and start a conversation in a Facebook group; join some discord communities; use some friends dating apps (Tinder, Bumble), find social events in your area (Meetup.com), etc.
