How did I study English

Have you ever wanted to know why somebody can get an English certificate with high score? This post seeks to provide you the experience of learning English from someone who has never been outside of Vietnam but possess a 935 score in TOEIC test.

After upgrading my English level by taking a TOEIC test, I received many questions from my friends as well as colleagues asking me how long did I prepare for the test and how come I could make that fast. Well, I have to say that success always pertains to effort. There was nothing like miracle here.

I just haunted myself with English everyday. You can refer to following ways I used to study English:

  • Listen to podcasts (downloaded by iTunes) every chance you can (in the morning when you wake up or before you go to bed)
  • Read news and articles in English
  • Try to write down your feelings or anything you experience during the day/week
  • Learn any course from skill port (for FCG associates only) as this can help you to improve not only professional and soft skills but also your English
  • Don’t read the subtitle when you watch movies on cable TV
  • If you want to have a high score in TOEIC test then you should find sample tests to practice as much as you can

And one important thing you should do is finding a motivation so that you can stay committed to your goals.
