How to Speak English Fluently

Learn with Robby Kukurs, 
a Fellow Language Learner and Blogger

If you have been trying to learn how to speak English fluently for a while, then you might be feeling a bit frustrated.

Am I right?

When asked what their goals are, most students learning English state that they want to speak English fluently.  


The ability to express oneself readily and effortlessly

What does that mean to you?  

  • Speaking grammatically correct English?
  • Not making any mistakes?
  • Feeling confidant despite your mistakes?
  • Sounding like a native English Speaker?

The list could go on and on.  Everyone defines fluency differently.  

That is why I team-up with English Harmony creator Robby Kukurs to bring you this article section focusing specifically on your English fluency issues.

Speaking from my own experience, learning a language, fluency is the idea that I can communicate with others without hesitation, confusion or misunderstandings.  I imagine a "utopia" where I speak perfectly.  

This obviously does not exist --not even for native speakers-- but it is this "idea" that pushes me to improve, study, and search for new ways to make the process easier.

Typical English Fluency
Issues According to Robby;

  • Knowing what you want to say in English but not being able to get the right words to come out of your mouth;
  • Speaking but suddenly confusing words or using incorrect grammar structures;
  • Speaking in English but hesitating a lot which makes you difficult to understand.

If any of those situations sound familiar, take a look below at some personalized help and advice from Robby himself.
