Here are some useful tips I found for speaking skills improvement
Imagine speaking English automatically… without thinking. The words come out of your mouth easily, and fast. You understand instantly.
To do this, you must change the way you study English. Your first action is to stop studying English words. What?
Stop studying English words.
That’s right, do not memorize words. Native speakers do not learn English by remembering single words. Native speakers learn phrases.
Phrases are GROUPS of words that naturally go together.
You must listen to UNDERSTANDABLE English. You must listen to
English EVERYDAY. Don’t read textbooks. Listen to English.
Its simple. That is the key to your English success. Stop reading textbooks. Start listening everyday.
Learn With Your Ears, Not Your Eyes
In most schools, you learn English with your eyes. You read textbooks. You study grammar rules.
The secret to speaking easily is to learn every word & phrase DEEPLY.
Its not enough to know a definition. Its not enough to remember for a test. You must put the word deep into your brain.
You must learn grammar by listening to real English. The best way is to listen to the same story… told in different times (points of view): Past, Perfect, Present, Future.
How do you do this? Easy! Find a story or article in the present tense. Then ask your native speaker tutor to write it again in the Past, with Perfect tenses, and in the Future. Finally, ask him to read and record these stories for you.
You learn real English if you want to understand native speakers and speak easily. Use real magazines, audio articles, TV shows, movies, radio talk shows, and audio books.
Learn Real English, Not Textbook English
Listen and Answer, not Listen and Repeat
Use Listen & Answer Mini-Story Lessons
In each Mini-Story Lesson, a speaker tells a short simple story. He also asks a lot of easy questions. Every time you hear a question, you pause and answer it.
You learn to answer questions quickly– without thinking. Your English becomes automatic.
How can you use Listen & Answer Stories? Easy! Find a native speaker tutor. Ask him to use this method: Ask him to tell a story… and to constantly ask you easy questions about it. This will teach you to think quickly in English!
