If you're going to speak in front of an audience as a speaker, make sure that you know your material by heart! Don't rely too much on your prepared materials. You should know the subject by heart which will give you more confidence.

If you're going to speak in front of an audience, have idiot cards instead of having your whole speech in front of you. Idiot cards or cue cards work best in small index cards. Just write down the topics and guides of what you're going to talk about. Not only will it look more natural, it can develop your speaking skills as well.

Great tips. If you don't believe in yourself, why should your listeners believe in you?

Careful transitions are an important part of preparation. A transition is a bridge from Point A to Point B - a connection between two points. If you learn to use specific transitions, you will improve the fluency of your speech as well as avoiding the verbalized pauses and unnecessary words. Good transitions demonstrate a command of language, thus enhancing your credibility.

In front of an audience, if the occasion allows it and/or it is quasi-informal, try bringing a little levity:

"You will have to excuse me, English is not my native tongue, so I might pronounce some words poorlier." <pause> "I know, poorlier is not grammatically correct... it's worstest." <pause during laughter> "That was a freebie." <smile then start speech>

Improve your Learning Skills! Learning is a skill and it can be improved.

Your path to learning effectively is through knowing:

-yourself
-your capacity to learn
-processes you have successfully used in the past
-your interest, and knowledge of what you wish to learn

Don't be in too much of a hurry. You're setting off on a long journey and there'll be delays and frustrations along the way. Sometimes you'll be in the fast lane and other times you'll be stuck in traffic, but there will also be lots of interesting things and interesting people along the way. :geek:

The main reason why we English learners fail in conversing efficiently is that we are in a dilemma that what if we say something that doesn’t make sense or sometimes we are just feel shy to speak to someone because we don’t know how to strike a conversation or something like that.

Here are few tips to improve your speaking skill in English:

1.Build your confidence: The first thing is to have confidence in yourself and in your speaking. Not having confidence is just a mental blockage and try not to be shy.

2.Try NOT to translate: If you translate the words from your Mother tongue, The order of words is completely different and you will be both slow and incorrect by doing this. Instead, learn phrases and sentences so you don’t have to think about the words you are saying. It should be automatic.

Another problem with translating is that you will be trying to incorporate grammar rules that you have learned. Translating and thinking about the grammar to create English sentences is incorrect and should be avoided.

3. speak out loud: when you study, don’t just listen. Speak out loud the material you are listening to and practice what you hear. Practice speaking out loud until your mouth and brain can do it without any effort. By doing so, you will be able to speak English fluently.

4.Practice: Without practice, nothing can be achieved. You must practice what you learn – new words, grammar and some of the phrases I mentioned.

5. Don’t speak too fast! It’s important to use a natural rhythm when speaking English, but if you speak too fast it will be difficult for people to understand you.

6.Expand your vocabulary: What you need to do is watch English movies with subtitles. As soon as you see and listen a new word, write it down and look for its meaning in a dictionary. Look on the internet to find sentences with that word. Pronounce the word many times to make it second nature. Review the words for two weeks at least and they will be a part of your vocabulary.

You got to watch a movie and boosted your word knowledge at the same time. Reading novels is another great way to learn new words and their use in different situations. So pick up a nice and interesting novel from your local library and start the learning process right away

7. surround yourself with English: You can do this by making rules with your existing friends that you will only speak English. You can also carry around an iPod and constantly listen to English sentences. As you can see, you can achieve results by changing what your surroundings are. Submerge yourself in English and you will learn several times faster.

8.Find native friends and speak with them: there so many sources for chatting through internet which make you able to communicate with people around the worlds,so you can be connected and speak as much as you want.
have fun :)

Wow, some great ideas here indeed.
I think that if you want to improve your spoken English, it would be a good idea to practise speaking. Repeat the conversations in your favourite movies to help exercise the muscles in your mouth and try to start slow and gradually build up speed.
Another idea is that if you want a partner to talk to but you live in a non-English country, try to find one on a website like http://www.livemocha.com or perhaps http://www.meetup.com.
I hope that helps {-:

Hi,

I'm new to this forum, and I'm a non native English speaker, trying to improve spoken English

Firstly, thank you so much for all the ideas. I learnt so much.

Question to everyone - How much do you think grammar is important when learning to speak English? I think that thinking too much about grammar will slow your fluency. I want to hear what others think {-:

I'm looking for a spoken English program where I can speak with natives - not learn grammar or words but just speak as much as I can. Do you know any such program on the internet?

Thanks!

I found two websites that provide spoken english practice with native speakers.

One is called Spoken English Practice. http://www.spokenenglishpractice.com Looking at the site, they seem to have been in business for sometime now.

The other one is English 1 on 1. wwww.eng1on1.com

Pls share if you have had past experience with these sites.

Hi Sabrina,

I cannot agree more with you. Focusing too much on grammar
at the start will definitely slow down your speaking progress.


Maybe you could glimpse some insights from my students' stories:

All my students, aged between 10 to 16, are excellent at grammar because
that's what they are being drilled at schools.

However, when I first started teaching them, speaking was their nightmare. They
could not utter a decent sentence. I think they were too afraid of making
the wrong sentence structure.

As soon as I forced them to speak English in any ways they want, words
flowed out their mouth. It's not perfect, but at least, they could communicate.

In the beginning, I didn't focus too much on grammar. Over time, when they made
grammatical mistakes in their speech, I fixed them.

Interestingly, at that point, it wasn't that difficult for them make the change.


So, in general, grammar is undoubtedly crucial for clear English communication, but
I don't think it should be your priority when you first learn to speak.

Good luck.

{-: Thanks for these great tips! I 'be been learning and teaching English since along time & I still believe that speaking is one of the most important skills in learning English. I would like to share with you some techniques I used to improve my speaking & I wish you ll find some of them helpful:
_ build your confidence and never feel afraid of making any sort of errors.
_ Think in English when speaking as this will help you generate the ideas more easily and make the right connection if needed.
_ Increase your list of vocabulary. You can't talk if you donot have the adequate amount of words needed in every situation.
_ Record your self while talking . This may give you a chance to hear yourself and find out the areas where you need improvement e.g. Pronunciation , grammar, intonation....etc
_ Increase the amount of time you practice English using different skills :listening, reading.....
_ If you donot have acess to talking with native speakers, you can watch their vedios and other authentic materials especially those that are related to teaching & learning English as well as talking about different topics you are interested in.

Hi, here is a tip that I consider very helpful when you need to practice speaking but there is no one to speak with. I learnt Greek this way but it does work for any language. Talk in front of the mirror. And talk aloud. You can start with any topic, from how to buy a ticket for the subway, giving and asking for directions, ordering food and s.o. Make talks and dialogues ... do it aloud, don't keep it quite, it's not gonna work if you don't say everything aloud. Say that you started a dialogue for asking and giving directions. You take both parts of the dialogue and you keep it alive for several times. Try to improve it, add new words, make the sentences more complete every next time. Also, try to give a voice to your thoughts. When you are walking in the park for example and you are thinking of something, try to do it aloud. For example, "Now, when I get to the end of the par, I will need a small rest. I will find a bench and I will sit for half an hour. Later, I will go to visit my sister. She lives nearby and once I am here I need to visit her. Shall I call her before or shall I go straight." and s.o.

Hi,

I've seen some good advice in this topic. The only thing I can add is that when you don't have people around you to practice with, you must create, or make, practice opportunities. Your speaking will not improve without practice. So read this topic, read other resources, and make notes about practice opportunities that you can create for yourself.

Record yourself before you begin the new practice. Then, after maybe 2 months, record yourself speaking again. Listen to both recordings and see if you notice progress. It is important to focus on what you do that is correct, and not only on what you need to improve.

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to add some details. I tihnk it is rather obvious but anyway. You are likely to make a mistake when you have a fear of making it. The main tip for me is to try to talk without being nervous. I have been learning English in this academy in Madrid http://www.soloidiomas.com/ and I clearly undestood that the group communication is the perfect way of learning a language. Discussing something interesting (a movie or a series' episode) may beat your fears and provoke you to talk more. I liked visiting my classes and thanks to this practice I stopped getting shy when it comes to speaking.

I have seen that the BEST way to learn English is by using the ASSIMILATION method. Ok How did you learn French? You learnt it by LISTENING and REPEATING. You didn't learn it by sitting in a classroom while someone did grammar on the board! You need to listen and practice saying the words out aloud.

Proficiency in English language speaking is very important. Once you have made the decision to learn English, the next step is to learn how to improve your English speaking online. To improve english speaking, there are many online services that offer different online learning courses. These online courses connect you with native speakers and with their help you can improve your conversation skills. It is very important to speak as often as possible with native speakers. With their help you will not only gain a greater level of fluency, but also become more confident in your own English skills.

You need to increase your vocabulary to get a good speaking skill. It required regular practise. Internet can help you in this matter very well. So explore the web and learn for the related keywords everyday.

1. Use English in Your Daily Life as Much as Possible - It’s more important to have frequent contact with English than to have hours and hours of study. Using English for 10 minutes a day, every day, is better than studying for 1 hour only once a week.

Even if you don’t live in an English-speaking country, there are still many ways to do this!

Here are just a few suggestions for making English part of your daily life:

. Listen to English as you drive to work.
. Read the news online in English instead of in your native language.
. Practice thinking in English while you are doing housework or exercise.
. Read articles, listen to podcasts, and watch videos in English about topics you enjoy (this is important! You will make much more progress if you are having fun during the process).

2. Balance The Area of Language Learning -

. Reading
. Writing
. Speaking
. Listening
. Grammar
. Vocabulary

Many students make the error of focusing too much on one or two areas, and they end up being weak in the other areas. One tip is to dedicate one day per week to studying and practicing each area.

3. Get a Regular Speaking Partner Through a "Conversation Exchange" Website - You can’t just study English… you need to USE your English!

If you have nobody to speak with in daily life, you can find a speaking partner online through a “conversation exchange” website. On these websites, you can meet native English speakers who want to learn your native language – this way, you can both help each other learn and practice.

4. Practice Talking To Yourself - This is REALLY an excellent way to develop your fluency and build your confidence. There is no pressure to be perfect, and nobody else will hear your mistakes.

Imagine somebody is asking you the question. Then practice answering it by talking to yourself out loud.

Yes… it feels a little bit silly. But you can do it alone where no one will hear you, and it’s a great step to putting your English into practice.

1) initially we don't need any person, we can start up by talking ownself talk to yourself and reply in mind....
2) and start to think in English
3) Ask question to yourself and reply elaborately.
I am agree with you perfectly.
I feel we must rely on our own and save energy and time.
Besides the Internet has some very good resources and we don't have to go class.
good luck

You can always start by reading out a book - aloud. Then once you feel confident try to move on to thinking in English in your mind. Then you can start practicing in front of a mirror. You can then start recording your speech and listen back to it. These activities will give you more confidence.

If we use the basic tips of speak English then I think English is not difficult to speak. These basic tips are below:
1. Increase your vocabulary daily by 5 new words you don't know
2. You need to feel before speak, mind who is doing, what is doing and with whom.
3. Don't translate into your native language before speak.
4. Think everything in English daily 15min in the morning and talk with your self
5 First, calm down to think about wordings you are going to choose and then speak slowly.

Hello,
The most important is your confidence in speaking English.If you have no confidence then you can't speak in front of anyone in any language.
Another you have to increase your vocabulary. So find the vocabulary words daily.
Talk with yourself in front of the mirror and speak aloud because when you speak aloud automatically it helps to increase your confidence.
You become a good speaker if you are a good listener.
Record your voice when you speaking English and cover your mistakes to listen to it.

Thanks

My Australian teacher of English gave me a way to practise speaking at home, alone and I think it is important because Speaking is the skill that we find most difficult to self-practise.

1- Get a recorder.
2- Prepare a presentation on any topic u like.
3- Record your speaking.
4- Listen to it again and again.
You will find out your mistakes and weak points.
(You will find your voice very cute :mrgreen: )
5- Do the 4 steps above whenever you have time.
Does your speaking get better? :wink:
Thank you very much for sharing your tips to improuve our skills.

i agree your strategy to improve speaking

using a recorder programm with your voice is a very good way to correct and improve your speaking and pronunciation

i add another idea

you can listen a short story and repear it with your voice

good luck

How to get a good speaking skill? It keeps long practise! No one can speak fluently in a flash . It needs time and how long depends on your ability and IQ.

Is normal

learning anything take a time and patience, and English is no exception

but if you have ability, will and patience you will realise your goals quickly

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome on board!

Dear newbies, it's nice to see you wave hello, but I'd prefer a speech! Feel free to post here what you like to speak, then SPEAK IT OUT LOUD :idea:

One tip for good speaking is TO SPEAK IT OUT LOUD! Don't let words lie in your head only. If you cannot find a partner, talk to yourself in the mirror. Let's see how long you can :wink:
Yes am with you if we don t finf a partner is not the end

you can talk with yourself with a out loud

thank you_ very much

Hi,all:
It's really a good site for english learners like me who want to
do well in english speaking.
It's a difficult for a non-native-speaker to talk to someone in english I think. Nearly 10 years have passed since I got to know this language. But unfortunately, I still can not open my mouth when I want to make a conversation to a foreigner. I just almost lose confidence.
I always admire him/her who speaks english fruently.How can he/she speak so well ?
And I find so many freinds right here with a warmly heart.And give us so many helpful tips&experience.
I CAN DO WELL WITH YOUR HELP.Thank U!
welcome back and thank you very much

you can use groups in facebook to know new friends and speak with them

you can also use wats up and messenger or skype to write and speak by voice with friends
