How to speak better English?

Writing, reading, and listening are the skills that can be practiced alone. But what about Speaking then?

It is easy to write beautiful sentences. You can memorize hundreds of vocabulary words. But when you open your mouth to speak, nothing comes out!!

Here are certain tips on how to speak better:

      Think In English: If you translate your native language into English, you will always make mistakes. The solution is to think in English. Try to use English whenever you are thinking about your day, or whenever you are ordering food. This is the easiest method which can be used anytime, anywhere. Also, try to use English dictionary to find out the word meanings. Gradually you will notice that when you think in English, it is easier for you to speak in English.

      Talk to yourself: Try to talk to yourself whenever you get time or whenever you are at home. Try to speak your thoughts aloud whenever you are thinking in English. Practice as much as possible. Even if you don’t have anyone to correct, still try to speak your thoughts aloud.

       Use a mirror: Mirror is your best friend! Choose any topic and speak in front of a mirror for at least 2-3 minutes and just talk. Watch your mouth, face and body language as you speak. Talk! Just talk! For full 2-3 minutes. Even if you don’t have any words and sentences, try to speak. This exercise will help to find out words or sentences you have difficulty with.

      Focus on fluency, not grammar: Try to be fluent in your speech. Do not take unnecessary pauses in between. The more you stop, the less confident you will sound. Even if your sentences are not grammatically correct but if you are fluent, your sentences will be understood and you will sound better.
