Allow me to start right now.
- Improve your vocabulary:
Start writing down every new word you learn from anywhere. You can apply all the new words and phrases learned to your everyday conversation during your entire English language learning phase.Use your phone to note your new vocabulary instead of carrying a notepad everywhere.
It’s essential to take note of the word’s translation into your native language. (Remember to mention the peculiar phonetic features of the new term, if it has any.)
- Watch English movies and web series:
This method of speaking practise helped me improve my spoken English as a Bengali medium student. It’s an easy and entertaining way to enhance your communication skills—you must put the subtitles on and watch a world-class English movie or web series.
- Speak with native English speakers:
Along with practicing English speaking with your friends and neighbors, try to talk to native English people. Training English speakers that way will help you to understand their accent, enhance your confidence level, and take note of how the native people speak the language.
- Read English newspaper loudly:
Reading the newspaper doesn’t only make you aware of what is going on around you, but it helps your English pronunciation. Keep reading the newspaper every day loudly for at least 20 minutes. It will work like magic. Your accent will be polished, and fluency will increase in no time.
- Listen to English songs:
We all listen to o music while we relax, sleep, drive, or work. It will be a great and fun way to learn to speak English better if you build a habit of listening to English songs.
You can start with evergreen songs by Beatles, Bob Dylan, or the world’s best classics like Coldplay, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, etc., as a beginner, and you can search the lyrics of the songs on Google. Eventually, you will start understanding the vocals without taking the help of Google.
