How to improve your spoken English

Speaking the English language is easy for native people in English-speaking countries. But what about for people who come from other countries who are not well-versed in this global language? If you are such a person, you may be thinking that it can be quite a challenge to learn the rules to improve your spoken English. But it is always possible. With practice and a few tips, you can learn to improve your spoken English. Step 1

Study the English language. There are certain rules in grammar and sentence construction with which you must be familiar. The written and the spoken English language have similarities and differences. Learn the pronunciation rules and accent tips. Step 2

Be attentive to how English-speaking people hold conversations. Listen to the words they use, what words they stress, how they express their thoughts through the language and the common expressions they make. Keep a small notebook with you and write down words and phrases you hear so you can recall them and practice speaking them later. Step 3

Enroll in an English class. You can find English as a second language (ESL) classes at some community organizations and schools. These classes might be free, or you might have to pay, but these classes will help you improve your spoken English skills. Step 4

Watch news programs, talk shows and movies in English. The more you immerse yourself in the language, the more you will familiarize yourself with the language and expressions used. Turn on the closed captioning so you can read the words in English and hear them being spoken at the same time. This will help strengthen your association to the written words that you likely already know with the sound and inflection of the spoken words. Step 5

Listen to the radio and audio books in English. Listen to something that you enjoy, that way it will be easier to absorb what you are hearing. This can help you recall the pronunciation and intonation better later....
