Lesson 34
Good morning Friend,

Yes I know when you are reading this it could be quite late because you are so busy with your job and family. Or is it your study? Whatever your situation, if you can improve your English, you will have more time for the things you like doing most. Why? Because when you speak good English you can work more effectively, meet more intelligent people and establish better business contacts. The big question still is how ''How can I improve my English when I don''t have much time''?

First of all, keep in mind that you are not the only person who has this problem. There are millions of people whose schedules might be even busier than yours. Second, you need to understand that it''s not important how much time you have. What really counts is how you use your time. This fact is so crucial that I want to repeat for you: The important thing is how you use your time. We all live on the same planet and a day still has 24 hours regardless of what country you live in and what job you do or how many kids you need to care for. Time management starts in your head. Decide what you want to do and you will find the time to do it.

But let''s get back to our question: How can I improve my English speaking skills? The answer: Get in touch with native English speakers. Listen to them. Ask them questions. Answer their questions. Learn from them and help them learn from you. "OK", I can hear you say "but how do I do that when I live in China, Russia, India or any other country where there no native speakers in my neighbourhood?" Don''t worry. You don''t have to move to the US or the UK. You can make friends with native speakers no matter where you live. Use the Internet. Use our forum. All you need to do is listen to the following voice messages and record your own. The first message is from Inga, an English teacher who lives and works in Minsk, the capital of Belarus. In her recording Inga says that she doesn''t have much contact with native speakers in Minsk. That''s why she uses our forum to talk to people like Alan Townend from London and Tom Kane from the United States. Here is what Inga has to say: How to speak English on the forum?
