When I was in Senior High School, I decide to improve my English by listening to the music, understand the lyric and sing with it. Then I buy a grammar book with answer sheet and try to answer the questions by myself. Sometimes it's a little hard for getting the correct pronunciation and nobody to correct me when I am wrong.
