Dialogue Between Two Friends on Difficulties in Learning English
Salim: Hello Sakil! How are you?
Sakil: I am fine and you?
Salim: I am fine too. I am very glad that you have come to visit me.
Sakil: Really! I have not seen you for quite some time.
Salim: Yes, it seems to be an age. However, I have taken decision to learn English well so that I can speak and write English fluently.
Sakil: Okay, you have taken a wise decision. I really appreciate your decision. In fact, it is impossible to build up a career without learning English well.
Salim: Exactly! But I do not know whether I would be able to learn English well or my attempt to learn English will end in smoke. Do you think I will face much difficulty to learn English?
Sakil: No, I do not think so. I hope you will succeed. What you need most to learn English well is to develop the four language skills of English.
Salim: What are these four language skills? And how can I develop these skills?
Sakil: These four language skills are reading, writing, speaking, and listening. In order to develop your writing skill you have to learn the basic grammar rules.
Salim: Oh, I see. But is that all?
Sakil: No. Every day you have to write some pages. Besides, you have to learn new vocabulary and their correct use and spelling. You have to write your diary in English every day.
Salim: But how can I develop my reading skill?
Sakil: By reading English newspapers daily, you can develop your reading skill easily.
Salim: But what about pronunciation for speaking?
Sakil: You can watch BBC, CNN, National Geographic Channel or English news on television to develop your pronunciation skill. You can also speak in English to one another in the class.
Salim: It is an excellent idea. Thank you very much for your wise suggestions.
Sakil: You are most welcome. See you again.
