Speaking English Naturally and Fluently

One of the points being assessed during the IELTS preparation for Speaking Test is fluency. Fluent in a language means you don’t have to think before you speak, you don’t have to consider grammar rules, and vocabulary to translate in your mind. What you have to do is expressing the thought when you have it; there is no in-between stage for stopping and frame a sentence according to grammar and vocabulary.
1.       Listen, Listen and Listen
 Before you learn how to speak English you need to learn how to listen to English. As you listen, you are filling your memory bank with information. The more times you listen to something the better, and all of the information will come out naturally as you start to speak. Study the real conversations that happen in real life instead of books!
2.       Pronunciation
Pay attention to the pronunciation of native speakers. You can find a lot of videos on YouTube. Read aloud in English, any text or poem or a passage; it is also simply the best way to practice. Then, try speaking with native speakers, for example via video calls. Start with small conversations.
3.       Stop Thinking About Grammar
To improve your speaking you have to stop thinking about the grammar and rules that you have learned. The grammar rules have helped you learn how to write better, but they are not helping you to speak better. In fact, these grammar rules are stopping you from speaking fluently because you are thinking too much about which words to say and what tense to use.
4.       Have Confidence
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to speak English, but you felt too shy, nervous and scared to speak? Were you afraid of making a mistake? Were you worried the other person wouldn’t understand what you were saying? Don’t be afraid! Have confidence, just open your mouth and speak.
5.       Practice
The more you practice and interact, the more natural it will be to speak English! The exposure to other people speaking English will allow you to learn how they speak.
Finally, have fun learning English!
