1) Listen, Listen, Listen 

I think listening is the most important skill. And the easiest one to practise. You can practise listening while you're doing housework or even sleeping. There are videos just for this.

2) Speak As Much As You Can

Many people struggle with speaking but the only way to get better is to practise more. Talk to a friend or with yourself. You can find a question to disguss. There are some example questions below.

  • Are birthdays important? Why?
  • What 3 things would you take with you if you were stuck on an island? Why?
  • Why do kids like sweet?

3) Do Everything In English

I don't mean everything but you can do many things in English. You can translate the language of your phone or computer to English. You can watch English movies and series. There are some movies that I recommend below. (Note: Many of them are children's movies. I prefer them because they're easy to understand.)

  • Harry Potter
  • How to Train Your Dragon?
  • Ballerina
  • Maleficent
  • The Odd Life of Timothy Green
  • Dumbo
  • A Christmas Carol
  • Beauty and The Beast
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?
  • Minions
  • Despicable Me
  • ZOMBIES (Disney)
  • Shrek
  • Frozen

4) Read

Maybe you haven't got much time to read but you can read short stories too. And some books that I recommend. ⬇ (children's books)

  • Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling
  • A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens
  • The Happy Prince - Oscar Wilde
  • Matilda - Roald Dahl
  • The Magic Finger - Roald Dahl
  • Wayside School (series) - Louis Sachar

Turkish Ravioli



Turkish ravioli is a traditional food in Turkey. We call it "mantı". People usually eat Turkish ravioli with yoghurt, dry mint and it's special sauce. Sometimes they eat it with garlic yoghurt too. In Turkish ravioli there are wafers and in the wafers there are minces. There are many kinds of Turkish ravioli like Sinop ravioli, Kayseri ravioli and Çorum ravioli. (These are some of our citys) Ravioli isn't just in Turkey. There are Russian, Japan and Italian ravioli too but they all are special. I recommend you to try Turkish ravioli. Goodbye!
