Tips belajar English lagi!

It takes time to learn English. If you are good at writing in English, most likely you maybe good at speaking it too but the lack of speaking practice may hinder you from progressing.

As you learn, do not be afraid to make mistakes. Most people avoid to talk in English because they do not want to be judge - by the grammatical mistakes they make, wrong choices of words, idioms or tenses. But it pays to be able to talk in good English.

So, just talk the way you write it. Here are some tips to get you cracking:

One of the way for you to start is by learning tenses. Remember, we do not use all the tenses when we talk.Tenses dictates the verb ( some are easier to see / hear = ending with ed > I liked the bag). However it is good for you if you to know and one of the way to do this is by memorising or by making phrases. (What is verb again? Verb is an action word, it describe a subject in a sentence).

Kita tak guna semua tenses bila bercakap. Fahamkan sahaja supaya anda tahu bila nak guna.

Using common pronoun I/Me, He/Him, She/Her, We/Us, They/Them
What is common pronoun again? Pronoun is used as a substitute to noun, to avoid repetitive usage of noun in a sentence.

I/He/She/They are subject pronoun. It is used to describe when a subject is doing an action.
Example :They walked together.

Me/him/her/them and us are object pronoun. These words don't do anything accept to receive an action.
Example: I gave it to her.

Dalam BM, tak ada semua ni sebab bahasa kita, kita gunakan 'dia, mereka' sebagai rujukan. Hafallah sikit2 sebab bab ini sangat mudah.

The doer is the subject in an active voice.If you swap it to a passive voice,the object and subject trade places.
Active voice: I love Paris. I is the subject and Paris is the object.
Passive voice:  Paris is loved by her. ( Paris now becomes the main subject in the sentence).
Passive voice is normally used in fiction writing.

Dalam perbualan kita akan gunakan active voice. Melainkan anda tulis blog, menceritakan sebagai orang kedua anda akan gunakan pasive voice.

Using preposition is important in constructing full sentences. It links and complete sentences.  Examples of prepositions are: on, about, around, in, against, beside etc.Most of the time a noun will follow after a preposition.
The book is on the table.
The book is beneath the chair.
The book is beside the phone.

Question tags
This is usually a statement followed by a question to affirm it.
Basic structure of a tag question:
Positive, negative
Negative, positive

She did it (+ve), didn't she (-ve)? Dia buat, bukan?
He doesn't love you (-ve), does he (+ve)? Dia tak cintakan kamu, kan?

Ingat, tengok berita dalam BI, movies, drama etc boleh banyak membantu anda memahami BI.
