I tell students this ALL THE TIME…
One of the best things you can do to improve your language skills is to read. Read on your free time. Read while you’re taking the bus to work or school. Set aside some time to read every night before bed.
I usually recommend blogs or magazine articles on topics of interest to my students. However, books are another excellent resource. I don’t mean boring textbooks (which many students use to learn English) but interesting, entertaining English books. Do you enjoy Science Fiction? Read it in English. Romance novels? Read them in English.
Reading doesn’t have to be boring to be beneficial. In fact, you’re much more likely to improve your language skills if you are engrossed in something enjoyable.

Happy reading :)
