another tips with english language

Postby jeangrey » Mon Jul 17, 2006 9:46 am

based on my experience, i learned english a lot by:
1. of course, my fave class is english.
2. reading english books.
3. watching english movie or tv series.
4. tune in to english radio.
5. practice to speak english everyday with your friend or officemates.make a game, like there will be a consequence if you dont or if you forgot to speak in english.in that way, we have no choice but to speak the language.

hope this might help you.

Hi Pirate

I followed your teacher advice I spoke and recorded my voice but I didn't like my voice ..
it's very funny when I speak in English..
and my pronunciation it's also funny ..


Give me another advice ..



Instead of I practicing speaking I spent time at laughing at my voice

Practise makes perfect.

Don't worry about grammar. Just speak out. The more you speak the better your grammar will be.

English kids never learn grammar before they go to school, but they can speak English fluently. It's all because they speak English everyday.

Do you think you would be interested in an online chat room, where you could chat in English using voice?

I am thinking of starting one on my site http://askjohn.seesaa.net, but I am not sure if people would be interested in it.

What do you think?

Good Afternoon Gents,

I am completely agree with the person who gave us the way of "Self Learning" which tells us that you have to bring recorder and cassettes then start to speak about any subject comes across your mind. after that listen to your speaking MANY TIMES then you can easily figure out your weakness points and you can see how good you are in speaking? And you will know who you start your conversation with polite words and sentences.

Start do that job always and time to time see how many changes have you done during short period

I really appreciate you all for your nice information and 4 subjects you submit :D

Your Always
Alkhader Ali

Yes,... and nowadays, with gimmicks like mini MP3 recorder and player,.. the problem of feeling embarassed being seen carrying a big mini-cassette-recorder is solved.

My private students do this when they attend seminars, business presentation, even English-speaking church sermons ...
They just record them, bring home and copy onto their computer hardrive and use them as self-learning listening exercises.

Hope this can inspire you too ... ;-)

Cheers,...

i'm new here. i really need your help. some people says that we can improve our english by speaking with people. but then, i dont have enough confidence to speak, especially with people who speaks english fluently. please give some advice and motivate me because i really need it and please corrent my sentence. Thank you very much ;-)


Don't worry about it. Native speakers actually like it when you speak English. They can see you're making an effort. I grew up in rural Canada speaking only French. When I turned 16, I decided to go to an English school in Montreal. I didn't have much confidence at first either... Oral exams were a complete nightmare, as well as the essays we had to hand in. That was until I met some people who were interested in the same stuff as me. I say you should get to know some people, no matter how hard it can seem to you. You will notice that the more you know someone, the more confident you will get, and your English will improve considerably over the months :D

HI guys been here twice now,i always like to go into forums because i like to share some of my ideas too.Right now i am in Asia doing some schooling.I have the opportunity of tutoring some Koreans here & what i did is read,read,read & read books to widen my vocabularies.It's quite hard to teach them cause some of them don't really speak the language,but mind you they're really good at grammar.It is just the way you view things i guess,if you think it's easy it will be easy, just practice,practice & practice the language.This is where i am now,there's some forums in there too that you can read & get some tips in speaking the language.

As Pirate said about his/her Australian English teacher, trying to practice speaking English alone might be one of those useful ways of practicing our speaking skills. I believe this proves effective, at least I figured it out when I was once informed of this trick by one of the best English teachers I had back in 2002. He once told me he used to practice speaking all by himself and that trick worked for him. I don't know if this trick can work for anybody else. Despite the need for being good at speaking, I've rarely spoken myself. The truth is, I've always found it much more effective when I speak with a partner (especially a good friend), as I can more easily come up with lots of ideas.
