    sir my english is weak .How to prepare for English

    • Harshit says:

      fluency is very compulsary,acco. to me u should try to speak with ur elder brothers and sisters in english only and no doubt ur fluency skill will be improved

    • Sarthak says:

      There are lots of people who tells you about “Ho to Improve English” and you can also take help from Internet. But, I think besides all this, IF you are not dedicated about what you what to do…all these answers were useless. So, make a PLAN for English subject, if you want to crack NDA exam and apply English language in your daily life, Frame a sentence and repeat in one or two times in a day and most of all Inscrese your vocab.
