If you are that English language learner who is always trying to learn, who studies alone and wants to be fluent, this text is for you! Or, if you are already studying English in a language school or with a private teacher and still don't practice your speaking outside the classroom, these tips are also for you!
Speech is one of the skills that, theoretically, we would need someone else to practice, right? Yes and no ... Well, if it is possible to practice with someone other than your teacher, or even with other people, whether they are native or not, it will be excellent for you to achieve the longed-for fluency!
However, if you still don't know anyone, don't have a gringo friend or a bilingual friend to exchange ideas, or if you want to feel more confident before starting the conversation, I'll give you three simple tips for you to start practicing now! So, let's go!
Talk to yourself in English, out loud. Think about the tasks you have to do or the activities you did during the day. Talk to yourself when you're alone at home, in the shower (shower talk!) Or in traffic. Oh, don't feel so weird talking to yourself, everyone talks to themselves at some point in their lives… hahaha!
Go in front of the mirror, reproduce some phrases and words (especially those that you find difficult to pronounce) and observe the movement of your lips, tongue, and jaw. Make sure you are pronouncing correctly and making the right moves.
Record yourself speaking English, a short text or lose phrases, then watch/listen and watch your evolution week after week. Don't be embarrassed, it can be awkward the first few times you see/hear yourself, but rest assured, the more you do, the more natural it will be. And remember, you don't have to show it to anyone ... However, showing it to the teacher (if you study at school / with a private teacher) or to a friend who already speaks English and asks for feedback, will undoubtedly help you to identify the points that should be improved, such as pronunciation, for example.
Okay, guys? Practicing a little bit every day makes all the difference! Start practicing now and, as soon as possible, find a partner willing to talk, exchange experiences! There are several platforms and groups on social networks full of people interested in practicing speech, just like you! So, let’s get started !! See you, guys, in the next post! Take care!
