So, you've learned how to read, write, and understand English. But truthfully, it's hard for you to compose a proper response during a conversation. Often, you find native speakers of English giving you a confused look after you finish telling them something. Try following these steps to improve the flow of your future conversations.

First of all I thought the article was interesting. However, Mark, I would have to completely disagree on the pauses you have recommended to place after a conjunction.  No one speaks like this, and I mean no one. You might slow down a little when describing the products, and emphasise the descriptive words, but you would never in casual conversation pause - people will most likely interrupt you. I think the pause in the second sentence isn’t needed and also is poorly timed. You wouldn’t leave the sentence hanging there. If anything you are likely to pause after “ This is a great product (pause), because it’s small and light. I hope you don’t mind my opinion on the article, but I really can’t support what you have said and I think it’s not how natives speak.<o:p></o:p>

For me, this article is very helpful. I find that the first and the second steps are relevant to my current situation. I realize that when I speak to others, I tend to make people confused because I have difficulty in arranging ideas coherently. 

The second step (ten words per each sentence) is definitely worth to try need to be practiced. When I am nervous, I tend to speak long sentences. It feels like I want to finish the conversation by putting all the words in just one sentence. And that often makes me get a confused look from native speakers.

  Today, I read your article and I realize that speak any language, not only English need to use your head, but only audicien. Through,there are many words which I don't know mean of it but I still understand that you talking about what. Thanks for your article, it is meanful for me. Thank you very much!

Vlad, I bring up your mistakes because you made some basic basic mistakes but still felt yourself above the article and asked if it was aimed at infants. It's a shame you cannot see the irony.

You stated as fact:-

"He should have been aware that every man who starts learning foreign language first he does is buying a dictionary or even several dictionaries."

"They are absolute fact that is vindicated by all experience of humanity for many years."

I hate to disappoint you but buying products is not wordly knowledge. It's not an experience of humanity, there are many people in humanity who have never bought a thing, or own very little. 

I took issue with your inflammatory language and challenged your facts. Again casting aspersions doesn't help your argument.

Great article! It's very helpful for me... because sometimes it's difficult to organize my speech so that people around me would understand me well. ...and, as much as I am concerned, the article is targeted not only for everyday conversation but for givining presentations, lectures and so on. That is why I think using pauses as Mark suggested is really useful and effective.
