Is there an English speaking show on TV in your area?
Before I came to the US, I learned French as a second language for many years and English as third language for one year. I could only write and read in French. I was very weak in English. Now nearly three decades later living in the US, I looked back and credited my English speaking skill from watching lot of TV shows like "Three's Company". Also I was forced to speak English daily with other people. Learning a new language is like learning a new skill. Practice makes perfect. By the way my French language is now gone. Best of luck to you and your students.

ı'm from turkey.I'm studying in an üniversity and I'll be an english teacher.However,my english knowledge was very weak except my grammar abilitywhen I started to the school. Because the only one that I had been taught was only grammar but I hadn't known this situation before I started to the school.later,I found out my english was weak.ı think a detailed grammar is very confusing.While writing or speaking,you are being confused for correcting your grammar mistakes.
besides this situation,people in turkey don't have other words,trusting yourself effects this situation..ıf you are a shy person,your speaking ability may not improve and this problem will influence your abilities like writing,reading.that is they are very important to learn a language very well.

I´m english student, I recommend you that you apply some learning techniques about games, songs and competitions. I think that we should break all our paradigms about traditionalist method.

See you.

Students should discuss different questions (topics) during the lessons. They should retell the texts and know the proverbs. With best wishes, Teacher of English from Ukraine.
