HERE ARE 4 TIPS ON HOW TO BE FLUENT IN ENGLISH:
1. Surround yourself with English
If you want to speak English well, you need to create an English learning environment.
When we surround ourselves with the language, we’re helping our brain absorb whatever sound we hear around us. This is an opportunity to observe and immerse into the language. Sometimes this might be difficult if you are in a non-English speaking country, if this is you, I have just the right tips for you. A disclaimer though, this isn’t just for people outside English-speaking countries this is for everyone who wants to improve their speaking skills.
Watch different kinds of movies or vlogs, interviews, or even stand-up comedy. When you are watching movies or videos, it will help absorb new words in your brain and the more you entertain the concept, the more you become curious or interested in phrases or words.
Once you catch a glimpse of an expression you want to use, use them in conversations! Listen to real-life conversations and take mental notes of certain phrases or expressions that native speakers would use. Mingle and make friends, and learn about interesting things in English!
2. Use effective methods
Don’t waste time on lists of random vocabulary and boring textbooks! Learn in context with real-life materials, and put what you learn into practice.
3. Speak more often
– Fluency is impossible if you don’t practice your speaking.
Think about how many times you’ve spoken English this week. Are you using English to communicate, or are you just studying it?
4. Get support and feedback
– Don’t be afraid to get help from a professional English teacher. A teacher can help you understand what you’re doing well, and what you can do to improve
