How to improve English speaking skills
English sounds very difficult to many but it is not that difficult if there is will. To speak you just need a basic understanding of English i.e. sentence formation, understanding what other person is saying to you in English, etc. but this has not to be so difficult it can be as easy as making a paper boat if we just try to enjoy the process, so the tip from my side would be:
1. Listen: Watch content in English, it is clichéd but it is true if you watch and hear someone speaking in English then there are more chances of you to understand it better. As English is not a theoretical subject but also a practical-based subject so you need practice in it. And it can be done by listening. You can watch movies, web series, or listen to English music with subtitles to develop a basic understanding of the language. Here subtitles are important as they will help you to learn to make sentences properly without studying grammar.
2. Observe: Observe the people around you or your mentor who are good at speaking English. By just observing them you will be able to make understand how they are moving their lips, how they are starting their talks, and how they are ending it. We indeed learn much more when we observe others, their behaviors with others. If I take the example of myself then I always try to observe who is well dressed, which doesn’t mean Gucci or Mercedes but who is caring for themselves confidently and with good posture.
3. Environment build-up: having a learning environment. Your friends and environment hold a similar place in terms of your life. Both equally affect your behavior, so having a positive surrounding is really important in the process of growth and yes learning any new skill is an addition to your abilities. Nothing gets wasted in this life, each ounce of your good work and bad work are counted here. Environment development doesn’t only include positivity but also having people who rather support you or don’t say anything when you try to do something new. These people can be anyone your mother, father, sibling or teacher, or any other person. But as a human we all crave basic support from our families and if we tend to fail to get that we feel disabled. But learning English doesn’t require talking to someone, there is no rule like that in English grammar, for this, you can practice speaking in front of the mirror every day for 10–15 minutes and after a few months, you will be seeing some change in your way of speaking.
4. Enjoy the process: All that I have told you is not just about learning but also to enjoy because without enjoyment you can’t improve any of your skills. So, if you watch a web series then not just focus on subtitles but also enjoy the story, if you listen to a song then dance along and make this process of building a new skill fun for you.
