Rahim: As-Salaam-Alaikum; how are you, Jamal?
Jamal: Wa-Alaikum-Salaam; I am fine and what about you?
Rahim: I am also fine by the grace of Almighty Allah. But you did not talk to me for many days. I don’t know why.
Jamal: Actually, My English exam will start after a month. So I am very much worried about it. In fact, I am very weak in written English.
Rahim: English is a foreign language. So, any student may face this problem.
Jamal: How can we face this problem?
Rahim: You know whenever we face any problem, we need a little patience to solve it.
Jamal: I want to discuss the way to solve the problem.
Rahim: English is not our mother tongue. So at first, we are to build up our vocabulary.
Jamal: How can we build up the vocabulary?
Rahim: Word coming is a good system to build up the word stock. It means you will note down the difficult words in a separate copy. After that, consult the dictionary for meaning.
Jamal: Which dictionary is better?
Rahim: Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English is a useful dictionary.
Jamal: I will purchase it. What more do we need to improve English?
Rahim: For English writing, we have to know structural English as well.
Jamal: What book can we read for this purpose?
Rahim: ‘A Practical English Usage’ by Michael Swan is a good English Grammar book. You may consult it.
Jamal: I’ll purchase the book.
Rahim: We must read English regularly and keep writing on some new topics. This is how we can upgrade our creative faculty.
Jamal: Right you are! If we learn vocabulary and grammar properly, they will indeed help us write any topic correctly.
Rahim: Thanks for sharing.
Jamal: You are most welcome. See you tomorrow.
Rahim: Okay! Bye.
