Worksheets can be useful tools when it comes to practicing your developing English skills and testing how much you actually know. Be they for a classroom environment or for personal use, worksheets are an important tool in learning English.
If you’re working on your own, be sure to use worksheets with answer keys so that you can check over your work and catch any mistakes you’ve made. Mistakes are important—especially if they’re repetitive mistakes. If you consistently make the same mistakes, highlight them for further study or discussion with your ESL teacher or language exchange partner. Don’t let mistakes get you down, as they are an integral part of the learning process and provide valuable opportunities to grow.
