How to improve your spoken and listening ENGLISH
English improving practical methods
English is undoubtedly the most beautiful, simple and widely used language all over the world. Its an international language which speaks for itself. Having good English skills really boosts an individual’s confidence. A person with poor English generally misses out many opportunities. Especially the great opportunities we have in today’s fast changing and advancing world.
Today, I will be discussing some of the factors that played key role in improving my English speaking, learning and understating skills. Hope these will benefit our readers too.
We will go back in time for about 2-3 years when I was a normal person with average English knowledge. I was able to write English, read out what’s written in English and understand that to much extent too. But when it came to listening to some person with American accent, I was a failure. Moreover I was not able to speak English as fluently as them. So what really helped me? Well I have tried to cover almost each and every fact that boosted my English skills in below points:
Steps to improve English speaking and listening skills
1. I was a big fan of Bollywood movies. I do care a lot about them. But my interest changed suddenly and it jumped towards more awesome line of movies what we call call as ‘Hollywood‘. Initially I started to watch dubbed Hollywood movies those were in my regional and easy to understand language and not in English. Then I tried to watch them in the language they were shot in (English). I do had a lot of trouble initially, but I didn’t gave up. I used Subtitles along with movies to help myself. And it really helped me a lot. With time, I was able to understand each and every point being said in a movie even without using subtitles. That worked like BOOM.
So try to watch movies, shows, news and serials that are in English. Not this will only help you with your listening skills, but you will also learn many new words, sentences and phrases. Try to learn as you watch. So when you will be speaking in English, words and sentences will automatically start building up. We all know that a movie leaves a very great impact on our mind. So this will surely help. Moreover, this is the most fun method to improve English.
2. Try to build a friend circle with only those friends who really want to improve their own English skills. Make commitment with each other to only use English as your sole language of communication. Try to talk more with them over phone, personally or in class or meetings.
3. Watch interviews of Great American personalities like some Entrepreneurs, some Actors or Athletes. You can easily find such videos on Youtube. Generally these people talk very efficiently in their interviews. Try to learn new words and sentences from them. Learn how they respond and reply to certain questions and situations. That will help a lot.
4. Point out the words that you don’t get and go through Dictionary every day to clear their meanings. In this way, you will learn new words everyday.
Improving English is not an over night task. It only gets better and better with time. So be consistent and patient. This will surely help.
