5 Steps to Improving Your English Speaking Skills

Numerous organizations and companies have started to make ‘speaking in English’ a mandatory even when you apply for a job or go to attend an interview. It is important for one to acquire the English language as if it were their own mother tongue. Speaking in English comfortably and flawlessly will take some time and you’ve accepted it but can you neutralize your accent?

Well, Yes! Yes you can.

How to go about it?

Start by implanting a few regular practices in your day-to-day lifestyle. The more you practice, the quicker the learning process will end and soon you will be able to speak like a native English speaker. Don’t bother about whether you want to adapt the British or the American accent, instead aim at adapting correct English.

5 Vital Steps Process:

Observation – Carefully observe the mouth movements of those who speak in English fluently. Slowly and softly repeat what they just said in the same manner (imitate). This will help you catch the intonation and rhythm of their speech.

Slow Down – Yes, of course, it is exciting to have adapted to a language but try to speak slowly until you have a grip on the accent and tempo. Don’t worry about your listener getting annoyed with your slow speech. It’s better to speak more slowly than to speak in wrong English.

Music for the soul – Listen to slow and soothing English numbers that will give you a chance to listen and understand the pronunciation of the words as well as the accent being used in the sound track. Try not to get too influenced by such songs and maintain the accent you are comfortable in.

Use the Dictionary – Familiarize yourself well enough with the words that bother you. Lay emphasis on words that you just cannot pronounce. Use the dictionary and look up for the correct pronunciation of words that have got you going bonkers.

Read Aloud? – It has been proven with significant evidence that reading aloud in English on a daily basis over a brief period of three months develops strong mouth muscles, which is extremely essential especially while learning and adapting a new language.
