practice

 

To practice something is to do it over and over again in order to learn a new skill or gain knowledge. If you do something every day, or if you do something frequently, you naturally become good at that activity--whatever it is that you choose to do. It could be cooking, playing the piano, driving a truck, or speaking and writing in English. This is a good word to start off a new year.

  • How many hours a day do you practice your English?
  • Maria practices speaking English every day in class.
  • Abadi practices English by going online.
  • Children who practice a musical instrument regularly can become quite good at it by the time they are adolescents.
  • Practice makes perfect. (This is a popular expression in the United States.)

You can also use the word "practice" as a verb or as noun when describing what a doctor does:

  • Dr. Singh opened a general practice in our neighborhood.
  • He has been practicing medicine for the last ten years.
