GOLDEN TIPS

                                                  ENGLISH COURSES

In today’s scenario where globalization is on the rampage, the stage is set such that English has become inevitable and important for anything and everything like studies, jobs, business and for many more aspects.

Possessing fair English knowledge would give you the confidence and good understanding on various global perspectives. It is never wrong to learn any new language. English language has become an essential tool to communicate with most of the people in the society.

 

Particularly, today’s youth, although it has good knowledge doesn’t possess English skills; as a result, most of it fails in interviews.

With the confidence that you can learn any language, right away start following the given tips … soon you will find a radical change in your language.

  1. Read English newspaper, short story or even novel for 20 minutes every day to get comfortable with the language.

  2. Develop your written language. It would help you to form right sentences within a considerable span of time and later this practice would help to form sentences in much shorter span of time.

  3. Start Speaking. Try out your spoken English on anyone who will be able to respond to you. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. You won’t improve unless you do that.

  4. Keep your ears open for the accent. Watch English news channels on Television. Watch BBC for the British Accent, CNN for the American Accent and NDTV 24/7 for the urban Indian Accent.

  5. Record your speech. Listen to your voice and catch your pronunciation mistakes. Make an earnest effort to avoid them.

  6. Grammar is important. The parts of speech, tenses, form of verb, articles and modals, all contribute to fluency. Focus more on understanding between noun and verb, which runs throughout English at all levels. Make a sincere effort to learn them.

  7. Make the Dictionary your best friend. Everyone including the scholars use it when confronted with a new word. So it is not bad and you don’t need to have the ashamed feeling that you don’t know. Familiarize yourself with its meaning and use it in a sentence that very day.

  8. Have someone proficient read aloud to you. A storybook or a newspaper article will do. Watch the way they move their lips and mouth while pronouncing certain words.

  9. Learn one new word every day. To increase your active vocabulary, start memorizing the meaning of the word you had heard but are not sure of. Use it regularly to absorb it into your vocabulary bank.

  10. Start writing a Diary. It will allow you to practice the language in a totally non-threatening environment. Everyday write one concrete paragraph of at least 100 words.

  11. Most importantly, never be afraid of clearing your doubts at Calibre Zone. The more you ask, the better you learn.

Always remember, the skills involved in developing any language are Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.

                                                  COMPUTER COURSES

The most important key to improve your Computer skills is to practice everything practically on an actual computer.

  1. Learn how to use Google to your advantage. Keep browsing for stuff whenever you’re free.

  2. Don’t be afraid to try something new on a computer. After all, there is hardly an action that you can perform on a computer to permanently break it.

  3. Read technical books and go through online tutorials.

  4. Hang out with geeks! If you spend time with technical people, some of their knowledge will automatically rub off on you.

  5. Subscribe to technical magazines.

  6. Go through user manuals of technical stuff very carefully.

  7. Start blogging.

  8. Take a computer course at Calibre Zone.

                                                    CORPORATE TRAINING

  1. Keep you mission and vision clear. When you have your goals set, you work harder and effectively to achieve them.

  2. Know about your dream company or industry beforehand. Research on it. Every organization has its own set of internal knowledge, or “sticky” information, that all employees come to understand. It can take time to learn how the company does things, from protocol for preparing client-facing documents to other types of best practices; but it is important.

  3. Strengthen connections.

  4. Keep yourself up-to-date on company changes, progress and future plans.

  5. Encourage information sharing.

  6. Clarify your ‘selling points’ and the reasons you want the job.

  7. Anticipate the interviewer’s concerns and reservations.

  8. Prepare for common interview questions.

  9. Know your strengths and weaknesses more than anyone else.

  10. Don’t lose confidence and hope.

  11. Line up your questions for the interviewer.

  12. Practice, practice and practice!

  13. Be well-dressed. Your dress code matters a lot.

  14. Always remember that, first impression is the last impression!

  15. Be enthusiastic, authentic, upbeat, focused, candid, confident and concise!

  16. Timing is critical. Don’t be late.

  17. Your references, resume etc. should be ready and in good condition in a folder.

  18. The evening before the interview is an important time. But it doesn’t mean that you need to relax.

  19. Being nervous is just natural. So, stay calm, natural and be yourself!

  20. Know the dos and don’ts during an interview by heart.

  21. Remember body language and avoid bad habits.

  22. Maintain a natural smiling face.

  23. Sell yourself throughout and then close the deal.

  24. Thank the interviewer(s) in person, by email or by post!

 

Definitely, your skills will improve, but cannot, if you lack commitment.

It would not be possible to develop any single skill in isolation.

BEST OF LUCK!
