CHALLENGE YOURSELF TO SPEAK IN ENGLISH
Immerse yourself in English learning head over heels, yes, you need to develop a love for the language to embrace it from the heart. Learn high-frequency English dialogues which you think could be used repeatedly. Challenge yourself to say things in English that you simply think could be too difficult for you. Most importantly, accept the fact that for the first few weeks it might feel frustrating but with practice, you are going to conquer your phobia of Speaking English. You need to understand that you know your native language so well because you have been listening and speaking it right from your childhood. The same rule applies to the English language as well. In order to master the language, you need to understand that you are trying to grasp your command of the language and not on the subject. The practice is the key to success in acquiring expertise in this language. If you wish to speak English fluently, you have to make it a necessary part of your daily life.
FAKE IT, MAKE IT!
Attitude plays a major role in learning any language. The day you stop thinking of yourself as someone who is learning to speak English and consider yourself as someone who already knows this language, you will see a huge difference in yourself and you will feel more confident in using the knowledge of the English language that you already know more effectively. It’s a small change but it definitely has great results. Focus more on what idea do you want to communicate. Initially use basic grammar structures and simple words to put forward your ideas in English, then slowly and gradually experiment using advanced grammar and English expressions.
Listen carefully when you are being questioned and you will answer perfectly. English questions are like mirrors. If someone asks you a question and you are not sure how to answer, paraphrase the question as to the beginning of your answer. Remember the person has already given you some words to compile your answer. Instead of memorizing grammar thoroughly, start with patterns like, “the thing is that…”, “honestly speaking”, “this whole thing is….”, and so on.
BE AN OBSERVER
Try to get more out of listening. The non-native speakers of the English language concentrate more on understanding the meaning of a particular word. This is important, but you should try not to listen to the words for their meanings, but to know how they have been pronounced and structured in a sentence.
USE IT OR LOSE IT
As the saying goes, “Use it or lose it,” which means if you don’t use what you have learnt, you might forget it. It’s fine if you don’t mug up thousands of complex words, but practicing what you learn is a must. The most effortless method to learn a new word is to use it the same day in your conversation and link a memory with the word. Try to say it in a sentence a few times over and you’ll never forget it.
LEARN ENGLISH SENTENCES THAN INDIVIDUAL WORDS
Speaking English fluently means being able to express your thoughts, feelings, and ideas spontaneously. Your aim is to speak English in complete sentences, so why not learn readymade English sentences and conversations than learning an individual word. You’ll find that English is more useful in your daily life if you study whole phrases, instead of just vocabulary and verbs.
STRIKE A BALANCE
The key to learning a language is maintaining a balance between studying and practicing. Speaking English flawlessly isn’t the same as mastering English grammar – even native speakers make grammar mistakes! Fluency is about being able to communicate. That’s why right after you exercise basic grammar and vocabulary, it’s important to put the textbook away for some time and practice speaking whatever little you have learnt. Trust me, you don’t need to learn everything to embark on your English fluency journey.
NO ONE IS BORN AN EXPERT
Sometimes it can be difficult to put all those rules and words together into a simple sentence. Don’t let the fear of saying something wrong stop you from speaking in any respect. Even if you realize you’re fumbling, stammering, or using grammar incorrectly, it’s fine, keep speaking anyway. Most of the time, people will understand what you’re trying to mention , even if you make a slip. Remember, it is the transition one has to go through, the more you speak, the better you are going to be, and the more spontaneously the right words will come to your mind.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
English is your second language and can be weird at times. There are no primitive rules that grammar will always rule this language. For example, the sentence “Let’s eat Grandpa” is a simple sentence, however, one might understand it as one wants to eat grandpa himself, however, if it is properly punctuated, then the meaning changes. So when it is read as “Let’s eat, Grandpa,” the meaning becomes as such that one is asking his/her grandfather to eat. Also, you would find a difference in the pronunciation of words like “read” used under different situations. “Read” pronounced as (reed) and “read” pronounced as (red) are the same in spelling but are pronounced differently depending on whether being used in a sentence in the past or present form. Also, the spelling of “mouse” and “house” may look to be the same but when pluralized, “house” becomes “houses” and “mouse” becomes “mice” and not “mouses.” There is no escape, learn a little every day to reach an expert level.
