Inspiring Tips to Fluently Speak English

In learning a language, the fluency stage takes dedication, patience, time, and effort to attain. Every year there are thousands of people with a determination that reach the fluency phase in the English language.

Tips for fluently speaking English 

Start speaking in English a lot

To speak English better, you need to participate in more speaking practice. If you reside in a non-English speaking country, then it is hard to find opportunities to communicate in English. 

  • You can buddy up with an English speaker wanting to learn your native language. You can download the language exchange app. 
  • Find another person interested in learning English and practice.
  • Use a language learning program with a speech recognition feature. 
  • Speak loudly in English about what activity you are doing.

Creatively find ways to practice English speaking!

Get personal tutor

Investing in an English tutor helps to increase fluency levels. By talking to a language tutor even once a week, can dramatically enhance your language. You can ask questions, discuss new words, and receive constructive feedback in real-time. 

Gain as much exposure to English as you can

Every day does something in English even if you are not studying. For example, listen to English songs, change phone settings to English, read English news, watch English shows and movies, and more. It is popular as ‘language immersion’. You get used to the sounds and fortify what you learned. 

Work on pronunciation

Pronunciation must be easy to understand. If an English speaker cannot understand your accent, they can underestimate your English level. You will need to move your tongue and mouth in a new way, so your physical becomes fluent. 

Learn phrases 

Fluency means speaking a language without hesitation. Learning English words one at a time will be hard to construct sentences. It is because you will need to translate each English sentence mentally word by word. On the other hand, include new words in common phrases to ease the mental stress, while speaking. 

For example, if you are learning the word ‘tomorrow’ then it is helpful to learn the entire phrase, ‘tomorrow, I am making’. In this way, your brain is prepared for half of the answer. There is less stopping and thinking involved. ‘Sentence mining’ means learning a list of phrases in a new language. People say that it helps them use new vocabulary quickly and memorize the grammar more naturally. 

Accept you feel uncomfortable while speaking English 

Speaking a new language is like combating a fear barrier. It is normal. In your native language, you know the subtle implications words carry, how stressed words can change the meaning, and how to use humor. 

On the other hand, a new language can offend someone, and embarrass you because you cannot impart exactly what you intend. It makes you seem foolish and intimidating. It even sucks at times. Language experts say that you will not understand everything or talk perfect English when you are trying to attain fluency. It is normal…accept the confusion and vagueness. 

Real progress starts when you overcome the awkwardness and place yourself in English-speaking circumstances, and make blunders.
