“6 Ways to Immediately Improve Your English Communication Skills.”

Worth noticing is the infinitive “To improve”. Can we break the infinitive and insert an adverb like this. Should it not have been “6 Ways to Improve Your English Communication Skills Immediately”?

Waiting to hear from you..

Hi Deepak!

Splitting the infinitive as is done here is perfectly fine!

There is nothing grammatically wrong with saying “Ways to Immediately Improve Your English”. In fact, both titles are grammatically correct. You can say either one, and they mean the same thing.
