Speak Fluent English

How can I speak fluent English? This is one of the many questions asked by people who are attempting to conquer English as a secondary language. Here are a few tips on how you can improve your English speaking skills:

Practice is the key to fluency; practice where you can, when you can. Any practice is good, whether the person you are speaking to is native or not. It is important to build your confidence; don’t be shy. Start with simple sentences, and speak with the English that you already know. Use words and phrases that you know in new situations. Native English speaker are more likely to correct you is you use the wrong word than if you use the wrong grammar. This way of experimenting is helpful with vocabulary and is a great way to get proper feedback. Try to respond to what people say to you in English, even if the person speaking to you is speaking a different language.

Make sure your responses are as natural as possible. Often time’s people will try to translate from their own language, and this takes lots of time not to mention it makes their speech more hesitant. If you forget a word, don’t freak out, it happens all the time. Do what native English speakers do and say things that “fill” the conversation (uh, um). This is better than keeping completely silent, and at least the person will know that you are thinking about what you want to say. You can even just be honest and say, “I forgot the word” the person you are speaking to may be able to help you complete your thought.

Don’t speak too fast. When speaking fluent English having a natural rhythm is very important. If you speak too fast it will be difficult for people to understand you. Try to relax. When you speak at a normal speed you will discover that many pronunciation skills, such as linking between words will happen automatically.

Remember to speak fluent  English you should:

  1. More practice brings more confidence.
  2. Be as natural as possible, relax.
  3. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
  4. Don’t speak too fast.
