Good question! There are many ways to improve your English skills from your own country! 

1. Firstly, you can take English classes with native English speakers from the comfort of your own home via Skype. This way you will have the help of a qualified teacher who can guide and support you on your journey to becoming a fluent English speaker.

2. If you already speak some English you could look for an English conversation club in your home town. This is a great way of improving your spoken fluency and of meeting new people who are also learning English.
 
3. You can watch movies, television shows, the news or documentaries in English. At the beginning you can use subtitles to help you to understand what is being said. This will help to develop your listening skills, improve your vocabulary and it is fun and informative too!

6. You can read books, magazines and articles on the internet in English. It is really useful to start your own ‘dictionary’ of any new words you learn, that way it is easy to revise your new vocabulary. Don’t look up every word you don’t know, try to understand the general meaning of the text first and then you can re-read it in more detail. Try to guess the meaning of the words from the context. If you are still unsure, check the meaning in a dictionary and write down the new word in your notebook.
