Many students ask me how they can improve their vocabulary, as well as their writing, and in my opinion, the best way to do that quickly is to read as much as you can in English, about subjects that interest you. New books are expensive, and if you borrow books from the library, you may find it hard to finish them within 3 weeks. An excellent way to learn about many new things is to visit the Books2Buy booksale, which is held several times/year at the Stanley A. Milner Library, in downtown Edmonton. It’s just upstairs from the Churchill LRT station. The best selection is available early Friday morning, and the best deal is available on Sunday, when you can fill a whole box with used books for only $10! For only $1-2/book, I recommend buying a good selection: some children’s books, non-fiction, English learning, and books that teach you how to do something new. Don’t miss this opportunity!
