The question we get a lot is: How to Speak English Fluently? Today we are going to talk about a few things that you should DO and NOT DO in order to Speak English Fluently.
Your English teacher has 10 years of teaching experience and is certified to teach English as a second language.He even displays his ESL Certificate proudly on the wall.
He teachers you advanced grammar lessons filled with rules and exceptions.You know all about regular verbs, prepositions and present continuous tense.
He uses phonetic charts to help you improve pronunciation.
You are given a list of 3000 English words to be memorized as part of the English course. You have studied most of these and can remember the meanings.
You do role plays and quizzes in class. You memorize dialogues with the doctor, barber etc.
You get comprehensive notes from classes. You write down every important thing your teacher says.
You are given a lot of homework in each class which you complete promptly.
The biggest reason why you can’t speak English fluently and confidently is that your English teacher never lets you speak in English in class. Your teacher gives lectures, asks you to take notes, gives you homework and asks you to study.
He talks all the time. But you never speak in English.
Most English teachers and English courses violate this fundamental rule about learning languages. You can’t learn to speak English fluently without Real Conversational practice.
If you goal is to just pass English exams like TOEIC, TOEFL or IELTS, use memorization techniques and prepare for these exams. However, if you want to become fluent in English and speak with a clear accent with confidence, find a English teacher who works more like a conversation partner than a teacher.
If you want to improve English speaking fast do these things:
Find an English tutor who works like a Conversation Partner. If you can find a Native English speaker it is even better.
Get corrections when you make mistakes but ask your teacher not to correct you all the time – you simply will not remember every correction, so it is better to develop confidence rather than worrying about mistakes.
Increase English “inputs” – Watch TED Talks, watch American/British Late night shows, Listen to BBC or NPR. Read the New York Times or Huffington Post. Expanding your Vocabulary is something you can do without a teacher.
