How to Master English
by: Sapan kumar

The only way to speak English is to speak English when u get a chance. Put it in your daily routine. Think in English only. Read English papers only.

Speaking English
by: Ryan

I have been studying English since grade school.I understand English and can read well but when it comes to speaking,I always feel that it's not a piece of cake.

You are absolutely right.The only way to become fluent is to speak regularly.No other method that will work except that. What we have to learn to do we learn by doing.

Thank you very much for sharing your ideas. It really encourages me to do what I ought to do to become fluent.

Once again, thanks a lot.

Easiest Way to English Fluency
by: Robby Kukurs

Hi Mabrouka,

The easiest and simplest way to English fluency is SPEAKING English.

You can study English for ten years and possess large English vocabulary but you still won't be able to speak fluently unless you've been speaking English A LOT.

You have to put every bit of newly acquired knowledge in practice. Ideally you should be constantly speaking either with others or yourself using phrases and expressions you learn along the way.

The most important practical piece of information I can give you about achieving English fluency is this - spoken English consists of PHRASES and WORD COMBINATIONS rather than separate words stuck together.

If you create English sentences in your head by translating from your own language and stick the respective English words together, your road to English fluency is going to be riddled with potholes.

If, on the other hand you make it your habit to learn new English words as part of word combinations http://englishharmony.com/use-english-collocations/ and explain them using other English words when memorizing, you're going to find it much easier to use that vocabulary in real-life conversations.

And once more - speaking, speaking, speaking.

Speak as much as you can with other whenever you get a chance. Engage in short 5 - 10 mins conversations with yourself by commenting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHtMgnzp5w4 on your actions, recalling recent events and planning your daily activities. After watching a film - talk about its plot in English and whenever you feel stuck for words - try to use other English words to fill gaps to make it your habit to paraphrase.

You'll find it much harder if you don't live in an English speaking environment, but believe me - to become fluent in English you need to speak English regularly!

Hope this helps a bit,

Regards,

Robby
