There are a lot of things you can do to improve your game.

You can take lessons; ICC has got a number of excellent teachers:

You can watch the hundreds of instructional videos that ICC’s members have access to:

And fo course you can keep playing, and check your games with a chess engine, to see where you went wrong.

Also, ICC has a lot of robots you can play against, to improve your chess. Here is a list:
