    "Talk a blue streak"

    This is the best way to improve your English.

    The expression “Talk a blue streak”, means to talk a lot.

    In Spanish, people say “Hablar por los codos”.

    Of course you don´t say “Talk by the elbows

    So, to talk a blue streak one needs to read, listen and speak a lot in English.

    If you know an average of 2000 words, then it´s possible.

    In fact, that isn´t very much.

    Simply talk about anything in an English conversation group.

    It is very important to read novels in English to build up your vocabulary.

    You should write down vocabulary words in your special little notebook, when you are reading a book, an English study book,  a newspaper, or even watching a film in English.

    It is also a good way to learn a lot of common and popular expressions.

    Use the new words in a speaking conversation group. It´s fun.

    Nowadays, it is very important to speak English if you are looking for a job.

    English is the number one language in the business world.
