: Question about ban time
: Well, you have the grammar, and you have the basics, what you need, is an improved vocabulary and familiarity with the daily use. There are two ways to improve at that level, which require no huddling over a dictionary: **Watch english films and TV shows and talk to other people speaking english.** It doesn't matter if they are native speakers or not, the purpose of this is, to make USING english so familiar to you, that at some poitn you will stop realizing that you are even using another language. Invite your own family to have "english days" for example. As to watching movies and TV, focus on TV shows which you like in your language, and get them in their (usually english) original sound. Not only is it fun, but what you can train very well that way, is the DAILY VOCABULARY, the things people say and communicate in daily life, including common phrases and expressions one would normally not find in most textbooks. Films on the other hand, are very good for training your listening and comprehension skills, as conversations in films are often heavily accentuated, hasty, or partially masked by background noise. This will help you in daily situations, where clear, open communication is not always an option, for example, talking onthe phone in a busy subway train during rushhour. Have fun in London, its a great town!
Hey man! Thanks a lot. I appreciate everything you wrote. I read everything you wrote. I will definitely try talking with some other non and native english speakers. I live alone, so I can't have my family for "english days" unfortunately :D. I'll try however watching some TV shows and/or films :). Thanks for the good advices and the long post! I agree that London is a great town, already been there at the age of fourteen, and I really liked it. Looking forward to go there again :P

: If you're moving to London you shouldn't be using words like hence or despite when you're speaking when trying to make friends. However, you should should be using those words for your superiors, teachers etc. If you use those words to your friends, you sound like a write knob and sound really posh. You can practise your english and having fun at the same time. Find something you can enjoy and watch in english. It can be sports, tv shows or even the LCS :D.

Yeah, haha I meant in the writing form, not in the spoken. Although I was thinking if using those words in the spoken form isn't right either, but thanks for clearing that out. I also wish to know what are the best replacements for those words I posted, just to be sure I am using the right ones.

: if your spoken english is as good as the written, you'll be grand-- i don't know which replacements you're referring to, but if you mean "less fancy words" there's absolutely nothing wrong with that-- and expressions will come with time as for practicing, change your phone language, operating system and games you usually play from your native language to english -- use english subtites for films/series and interact as much as possible -- you'll be fluent in no time :D

I've been using english for my phone and PC for years, yeah I reffer to "less fancy words" as replacements, same meaning, but with other words. I still haven't started watching movies with english subtitles, but I might as well start doing that too, I guess it will help me improve a lot.. I made few tests some time ago, online, got C1 most of the time, tried different variants just to see the result..
