Improving Speaking skills

My most important piece of advice is: “Do something (anything). If you don’t do anything, you won’t get anywhere. Make it your hobby, not a chore, but above all have fun!”


Don’t be in too much of a hurry. You’re setting off on a long journey and there’ll be delays and frustrations along the way. Sometimes you’ll be in the fast lane and other times you’ll be stuck in traffic, but there will also be lots of interesting things and interesting people along the way. Take your time to really enjoy the experience.


There are many ways to improve your level of English, but only you can find the right way for you. Here are a few tips that might help:


Improve your Learning Skills


Learning is a skill and it can be improved.


Your path to learning effectively is through knowing



  • yourself

  • your capacity to learn

  • processes you have successfully used in the past

  • your interest, and knowledge of what you wish to learn


Motivate yourself


If you are not motivated to learn English you will become frustrated and give up. Ask yourself the following questions, and be honest:



  • Why do you need to learn/improve English?

  • Where will you need to use English?

  • What skills do you need to learn/improve?

  • How soon do you need to see results?

  • How much time can you afford to devote to learning English.

  • How much money can you afford to devote to learning English.


Set yourself achievable goals


You know how much time you can dedicate to learning English, but a short time each day will produce better, longer-term results than a full day on the weekend and then nothing for two weeks.


Joining a short intensive course could produce better results than joining a course that takes place once a week for six months.


Here are some goals you could set yourself:-



  • Join an English course – a virtual one or a real one (and attend regularly).

  • Do your homework.

  • Read a book or a comic every month.

  • Learn a new word every day.

  • Read a news article on the net every day.

  • Do 10 minutes listening practice every day.

  • Watch an English film at least once a month.

  • Follow a soap, comedy or radio or TV drama.


A good way to meet your goals is to establish a system of rewards and punishments.


Decide on a reward you will give yourself for fulfilling your goals for a month.

Thanks for your valuable suggestions. I can not give much time  to learn though I want  (wish) to learn quickly.  When i read any news or report, I can not understand long sentences, it makes me frustrated. I think, I can express myself with simple sentenses in writing but it is very hard for me to express, what i want to say in speaking.


Please help me with your valuable feedback.
