  • 3 Signs of an Effective Spoken English Class

    Picking an effective Spoken English class is really important if you want to improve your English speaking skills fast. The problem is a lot of Spoken English classes still use outdated memorization methods to teach. For example, if you go to a Spoken English class and only learn about irregular verbs for a whole hour, you are not gong to be fluent in English. You will understand the theoretical aspects of irregular verbs but your speaking ability will be improve.

    In this blog post we will discuss the mains signs of an effective Spoken English class. Hopefully, this will give you some guidance to pick the right Spoken English class and study English in a more productive way.

    Pick a Spoken English Class that operates like an English Speaking Club

    An effective Spoken English Class will provide students a lot of conversational practice. Most English students need to learn how to converse naturally after gaining basic level grammar and vocabulary knowledge. This requires frequent ‘free’ talk and which should be based on their interests in order to keep them motivated to learn. While doing so, they will pick up the correct pronunciation and feel of the language with the instructors help.

    If your Spoken English class does not give you chances to speak in English a lot, it will not make you fluent.

     

    English must be the ONLY language spoken in class

    If you are in a Spoken English class where you speak in your native language and not English, how are you going to improve? But you will be surprised how often this happens in Spoken English classes around the world.

    The key to improving Spoken English is having real conversations in English as often as you can. There is no other way. Learning a language is about communication, and learning to have a conversation with someone in any foreign language takes a willingness to make mistakes. Having someone to speak with who can gently point out their mistakes and explain the correct way to say or pronounce a word or sentence can be extremely beneficial to leaning a new language.

    So always pick a Spoken English class that encourages students only to speak in English at least during the class.

     

    The teacher MUST be a Native English Speaker

    If you can find a Spoken English class conducted by a Native English Speaker, that is the best way to be fluent.

    Speaking in English with anyone is better than not speaking in English at all. Speaking in English with anyone is better than just sitting in English lessons and taking notes.

    However, if you can find a Native English Teacher to practice speaking with, that is the best way to become really fluent in English.

    Benefits of practicing with Native Speakers compared to non Native teachers:

    • When you practice with a Native English teacher you will learn to speak at the right speed with the right pronunciation.
    • You will develop an accent which is close to “Native” as possible.
    • You will learn idioms and slang used by Native English Speakers – things that are hard to learn just by studying textbooks.

     

    A non-native English tutor can help you with things like grammar rules but you will not learn to speak like a Native English speaker.

    So always pick a Spoken English class conducted by a Native English Speaker!
