How to Speak English language fluently in a short period?

What is Fluency? What is the definition of fluency? Fluency means the ability to speak any language without any problem, using correct grammar and punctuation.  Another important thing is awareness of idioms. Idioms are a group of words whose actual meaning is different from the literal meaning. So, Fluency means knowing of words and place them with ease and comfort.

Now another question arises- How to get the Fluency? Fluency cannot come in a day or two. Fluency comes with regular practice. You cannot think if you study tonight and tomorrow morning you will speak fluently, this will not happen. Reading is important to get to know about new words or to increase your vocabulary but speaking is important to get fluent in English. So, practice is very important. More you practice, more you will get confidence and then you will be able to speak without any hesitation. Therefore, we can say that Reading and speaking, both are important for speaking fluent English.

Let’s discuss basic things which help to speak English fluently.

 Start thinking in English

 It is very important you should start thinking in the English language. Don’t try to translate your opinion from your mother tongue (Native language) to English. Because when you start thinking in English will help you to become more fluent in speaking English and this language will be incorporated within yourself. It is one of the best ways to increase your vocabulary with words that you will use in your daily conversations. Overall, start practicing it in your daily life.

  1. Reading

 Reading is also very important to speak English fluently. It helps to improve your vocabulary and grammar. Read books and novels.  With reading, you will get information about different topics like your society, health, and education etc. While reading, underline the words which you are not familiar with and get the meaning of the words and start using those in your daily life. Remember! during reading, concentrate on the pronunciation of the words as this will help in the improving your fluency. Reading will also help you to improve your writing skill along with the speaking skill.

  1. Videos

Start watching movies or videos with English subtitles. This will help to read them or to understand the conversation while you are watching English movies. If you didn’t understand the meaning, replay that scene of the movie. Watching English movies or videos is the best way to get used to listen to English.  With listening, you will get to know the pronunciation of many unfamiliar words and about idioms.

  1. Record your voice

 Another important thing that most of the people don’t realize is -recording your own voice. At the end of the day, just recall what you did and record your own voice which helps to identify your mistakes like how you pronounce each word while speaking. Slowly and gradually you will feel more confident and when you speak in public, you will not feel embarrassing.

Above given points will definitely help you. So, start implementing in your daily routine.

Some immediate steps, you can apply to speak English fluently:-

  1. Start watching English movies.
  2. Start reading English newspaper and books or novels.
  3. Start speaking in English with your family members.
  4. Start making notes of idioms and colloquialisms.
  5. Listen to the other people and try to observe how they pronounce the words exactly.

Best conversational techniques to speak English language?

Now you must be thinking it is impossible? Most of the people find difficulty in speaking a different language other than their mother tongue. Now why people face difficulty in speaking another language? The simple answer is that they are not used to speak another language. They find difficulty as they are not able to find correct words to express themselves what they are trying to say.  Now the question arises why people feel difficulty in finding correct words to express themselves? It is because most of the people think in their mother tongue (like Hindi, Punjabi etc.) So, the best solution for this, one has to think in English and start speaking with correct word choice and grammar.  Let me explain the fundamentals principles and common mistakes that you need to avoid. Learning the English language involves Listening, Speaking, Reading and writing.

There are four essential components to learn English.

  1. Phonetics Awareness

Phonetics is related to sound, which means a systematic organization of sounds in the English language. The English language has 41 phonemes which are a combination of words and syllables. It is a method of teaching people to recognize different sounds. There are a number of video’s available online

  1. Reading Capability

Reading fluency is very important, basically, it is a capability to read and speak continuously.  Which also means not looking at each word and finding difficulty figuring out the correct pronunciation of the words? It should be proper and accurate.

  1. Vocabulary Development

Vocabulary is the main body of the English language. It also means deep knowledge of English words and their meaning and pronunciation.  It is very important to develop your academic word list with meaning and pronunciation.  Yes, that’s true you cannot remember all the words in one day. It’s is recommended you should learn at least 10 words and try to use those words in your daily speaking. There is around 3000 academic word list. Practice daily until you are perfect, yes it is a slow process.

  1. Oral Speaking Skills

Oral skills mean how you speak English fluently. But to speak English fluently you require confidence which further needs the use of correct grammar and correct pronunciation of words. It is very important you should start speaking only in English with your friends and family. Try to watch English movie channels and get into the habit of speaking only in the English language. So, these are the essential things which are required for oral speaking skills.

What is the best way to prepare for PTE (Pearson Test in English)?

This question is very important for those who have just started preparing PTE.  First of all, you need to understand your level of English language which includes speaking and writing.  It is very important to watch English Movies and read the newspaper if you are an average student.  Moreover, it has been observed that students face problems in PTE reading section because of their low academic vocabulary.   It is highly recommended to study the list of academic vocabulary available free of cost online.

Once you have identified your level of understanding the English language, and then the second step is to start working on your weak areas.  Again the question arises …..How? How to start and where to start?

If your vocabulary is not up to the mark or if you are lacking in English Grammar, get an English grammar book and start working on your weak areas.  It has also been observed that many students face problems with the pronunciation of words. So, there are many free apps available online where you can practice free of cost and improve your pronunciation. Because of poor pronunciation during the exam can damage your speaking score. It is recommended to practice daily at-least 10 Read Aloud. The best Tip to practice Read Aloud is to speak naturally and open your mouth while reading.

If you have improved all your weak areas, then start preparing for actual exam test. There are 3 books which are available in the market for the PTE Preparation.
