I agree, watching English news, movies and Youtube clips give you (almost) the works: situation - accent,  body language, timing and tone, inflection etc.    Copy what you are hearing; seeing.
All important.  Record your reading aloud and get a good teacher to advise on tone and context.

The rest is simply practice.  (practice!  practice!  practice!)

You'll be Ok.              :top:

Hi everyone,

@ Moon1990, you could also browse through the adverts in the Language classes in Ho Chi Minh City and even drop your own one so that members wishing to help may directly contact you.

All the best,
Bhavna

This is excellent advice, contrary to the parent who says "turn off the TV and do your homework."  I had a handful of students in Vietnam who were essentially fluent by grade 8 but one stood out with respect to accent.  Hers was distinctively American.  I asked her back when I first taught her in Grade 6 if she had lived in the US and she told me never but that she watched Disney Channel every day and repeated what she heard.

I am teaching ESL in a Hawaii low income district high school now, mostly Filipino, Chuukese and some Chinese.  They admit that they watch ethnic TV channels at home but I urge them to stick with English TV even if it is cartoons.

If u wanted also we can chat through zalo,and we talk always in English so u improve,my number was +XXX

Practice, practice, practice.

Reading pretty much any magazine on subjects you're interested in will help a lot. The vast majority of magazines have a reasonable standard of grammar, so you'll pick up the points by reading, even though you may not understand the rules.

High quality TV (Nat Geo and similar) will help your listening comprehension a lot, especially if they're subtitled in your local language.
Be very careful of American films as they tend to contain a lot of bad language, and you might well start using the words not realising they're offensive.

Then try to speak English with high grade speakers, including native speakers, as much as possible.

Yeah, that's good idea. I live District 7. I will message on skype.

Thank you so much. Have a good everyday.

One word: practice, practice and practice anytime you can. And don't by shy if you make mistakes 'cause you learn a lot from those and gradually you'll upgrade yourselves in English communication.

Wish you luck, Moon1990 ^^

Please do not deceive people for personal gain. To say that 3 months of study and one will "pass the interview", is false. Yes, the interview is conducted in English but there are other factors that will be taken into consideration.

Here are some FREE resources:

https://www.edx.org/ Free courses only pay if you want a certificate. A few courses here, but most notably there is the TOEFL prep course (see link below).

TOEFL® Test Preparation: The Insider’s Guide

https://www.coursera.org/ Free courses only pay if you want a certificate. Several courses probably designed for college students.

https://www.khanacademy.org/ Free courses. Donations optional. Not really for teaching English, but there might be some helpful lessons for those who desire.

There are many FREE educational resources. I think with some independent studying and practice, practice, practice with English speakers, you can succeed.

Best of luck.

Get Rosetta Stone and you won't look back. I learned 3 languages using that and Google.
