Try to locate a person in your school or area that is a fluent speaker of English, and ask that individual to meet with you on a regular basis in order to practice your English. You will have the chance to ask this native speaker questions about English grammar and pronunciation, while speaking about issues that both of you have an interest in. Bring a pen and a note pad with you so that you can write down any words that are unfamiliar to you. When you return home you can use your English dictionary to look up the meaning of these words, if your English language buddy has not already helped you to understand the meaning of these words. It is a good idea to make the person that you are practicing with someone who does not speak your native language. I know that it is quite tempting to practice English with a person who speaks your language, but this is not the best thing because you want to learn to think in English. It will be harder for you, but also better for you to pick someone who must help you in English only because they do not speak your native language. If your English speaking friend does not speak your native language, you can help them to learn it also. I am sure they will really appreciate this assistance from you as much as you appreciate you appreciate their help.
If you do not know where to go with your new English friend, you can try the grocery store. No matter where you are from, you must eat. In your country going to the grocery store may not be an exciting activity, but in a new country it can be quite fun. You should ask you English speaking friend to let you practice your English by asking for things in English. For example, you can ask the grocery store employees where the meat is, which aisle the soda is in or other other food related questions. Before you go to the store itself you should have a written list of items that you will need. This is something that your friend can help you with in advance. After you have bought the things that you need from the grocery store you can invite your friend to dinner. You should both be very hungry at this point.
