Question:

How can I use more expressive language when writing and learn more vocabulary?

Inactive

Answer:

One of the best tips I have learned about becoming a better writer and retaining vocabulary is this "to be a good writer, you have to be a good reader." The key is exposing yourself to new texts, genres, and vocabulary consistently. You do not want to cram vocabulary lists only to forget them the next day or week. If you focus on exposing yourself to text whether leisure or academic you will progressively improve your vocabulary and therefore be able to use more expressive language.

Question:

How can I improve my English listening skills?

Answer:

I would recommend listening to music, audio books or watching movies and shows in English with subtitles or lyrics. Find something interesting about English that you like and make it a part of your daily routine. For example, maybe when you are getting ready in the morning you can listen to English pop songs or podcasts. The trick is getting your ears and brain comfortable to how the language sounds.

Question:

How do I use the present progressive tense in English?

Inactive

Answer:

To use the present progressive tense we simply use the Subject+ the helping verb (to be) + the present participle (with -ing at the end of the verb). For example (I)+ (am)+ (running ) = I am running. Or (we) + (are) + (running) = We are running. We use present progressive to express an action happening or going on NOW.
