Go for It
Vicky is talking to her teacher about her English.
V: How can I improve my English, sir?
T: Well, the more you read, the better you''ll write.
V: And what about my spoken English?
T: Practice makes perfect. Speak English whenever you have the chance.
V: But I don''t get many opportunities to speak English.
T: Remember: You''ll have to create opportunities yourself.
V: What do you mean by that?
T: You can''t sit on your behind and hope that good things will come to you. You''ve got to go for it.
V: I see what you mean.
T: Good. Now go and put what you have learnt into practice.
