Necessary is to make it one habit, always speak english.

Go to England for example, you can decide to live there forever.

Why do you want to become a "master" in english-speaking ? do you want to teach english later ?

Will we once speak like native english-speakers ?

That's not necessarily true. My sister is married to a German for over 7 years now. He's a bright boy and understands most of what my sister and I say, but when it comes to speaking, he acts like he's having a seizure or something. He lacks confidence.

Will, interest, and determination play vital roles as well.

Yeah, red. That's a great piece of advise. Besides, Canadians and Americans are so cute. I'd be glad to marry one of those handsome guys. :oops:

Just look at him. Awww Isn't he cute? His name, "Peter Krause"
Let me tell you guys that I only tune in "Six Feet under" in order to see him. I'm not saying that this TV series isn't great but he really makes it better.
Sorry that I didn't paste his pic here. It's just I don't know how to do that. Could you help me? I know there is a button "Img*" you have to click on here but It didn't work. Well, I just wanted to share this cutie with all girls here.
I'm sure I mastered the language if I'd marry him, no doubt about it! :oops:

- Frengo thanks a lot for your help. I'll try that.
- Elba, yeah I know, this guy Peter is so cute. Too bad that you like older. Hmm I'm curious. What kind of guys do you like? Do you have a favorite actor that you find cute? Why don't you share a pic with me? I bet you have great taste. :mrgreen:

your query on:perfect English speaker.

Post by Bond007 » Tue Mar 15, 2005 2:49 pm

Dear Nissar007,

To be a good orator, follow the following:

1) Use simple words when u speak, so that others can understand u, If u speak bombastic words, people will clap like fools, many will not follow.

2)Enrich your vocabulary, so that when u attend or when someone speaks in bombastic language, u will be able to understand as to what he has said.

3)Always speak with slow space - mainly because when u speak with space (slow pauses), it gives time for others to understand and grasp your words as well it is beneficial for you as it gives u time to select proper words to be used for your future sentence. Saying in speed, u may utter out words not appreciated.

4)Speak in low voice, too loud a tone, would affect your personality, and would sound hoarse and crude.

5)Be a good listener.

Evidence of the above is : U see good English Film Stars or Actors, they do not speak slow because they think about dialogues, but their main intention is with reference to point 3. mentioned above.

Feel free to contact me on :ayazmomin@yahoo.com

bye

Not much. She lived in Germany for 2 years but hated it because she had trouble with the language.

I think she only knows the German word for vaseline and virgin: Veenashlidar and Guduntheit, respectively.

Pretty much because he has no choice. My siblings and I speak English only. We speak Chinese only when my parents are around. He's Chinese, btw. At the beginning, he spoke only Chinese to us, but we almost always replied in English.

They've been married for 7 and he lived here for 5 so he has spent a significant amount of time in Canada.
