Dear All,

I'm an electrical building services engineer with 20 years of working experience. My boss said that I should improve my English.

Anyone can suggest any way I can improve my English. Any suggestion is welcome!

Many thanks in advance.

Shakespearean English is 200 years out of date in terms of the words and structure used! Id suggest something more contemporary by an English rather than an American Author.
Good luck with the new job.

As a former English teacher, I'd suggest first working out which particular areas you need to improve - i.e. writing, speaking, technical vocab and then just continually practice. Have some English podcasts on your mobile/ipod to listen to whenever possible, preferably with a subject that really interests you, or find a magazine on a topic that interests you and read an article a day. Find opportunities to practice speaking as much as possible - go out with native English speakers or join a club/group if necessary. Good luck!

My previous employment required a high standard of written English. But, now I have changed my job. I'm now reading English books that interested me and I can see improvement in my English. Thanks for your advance.
