3 Rules for Improving Spoken English

Have you been learning

English for years but still can’t speak fluently?
You are not alone. In fact, spoken English is the hardest aspect of English to learn for most ESL students.
But why does this happen? How do most students develop English writing skills faster than speaking skills? How can one improve spoken English fast?

Rule #1: You can’t learn spoken English like you learn History or Biology.
Subjects like History and Biology can be mastered by learning and memorizing. You will only improve your spoken English by continuous speaking practice.

Rule#2: Find a teacher that will act like a Conversation Partner, not a professor!
Most English teachers are great at teaching grammar and vocabulary. However, you will never become fluent in English just by studying grammar and memorizing vocabulary words.
The secret to improving spoken English is practicing speaking a lot. For this to happen, your English teacher should act like a Conversation Partner.

Rule#3: Focus on Fluency, not Grammar!
Tired of memorizing endless grammar rules? Stop doing this immediately!
Studies show that learning too much grammar actually hurts your ability to speak English fluently. The reason is English grammar has far too many rules and your brain simply can’t memorize and use all of those rules in real conversations.

Practice, practice, practice speaking!

    Wow! I think what you said is totally right! I think most English learners in Chinese have been focusing on vocabulary and grammar too much, and we definitely lack practicing spoken English. I really hope to have a teacher as a conversation partner.
