Hello, this is Jack from tofluency.com, and in this video we're going to look at how you can improve your English speaking skills, so keep watching!

I receive many emails from English learners telling me that they want to improve their English speaking, and I imagine that this is what you want too.

But before we take a look at the specific ways that you can improve your speaking, it's important to know that working on your general
English is going to help your speaking too. So, make sure you're doing the other things that you need to do to improve your level.

So, there are two main ways that you can improve your English speaking, and the first way is to get more natural practice; and this just means having conversations with other people in English. Doing this not only helps you use your English in different situations but it also allows you to learn new words and phrases and to learn more about English by listening to other people speak.

And having conversations is one of the best ways that you can get natural input. The second way to improve your speaking is to do something that I call focused learning; and this is when you practice specific things to help you improve, and you can do this on your own or work with a teacher, and this is different than having normal everyday conversations

An example of this is doing drills and other things that are going to help you improve your pronunciation, and I feel that not enough learners spend enough time working on their pronunciation.

It will make a massive difference if you can say the different sounds in English correctly, in addition to being able to use the correct stress, intonation, and rhythm when you speak and that's why I recommend that you spend time working on your pronunciation.

Another example of focused learning is mimicking native speakers, and anyone can do this now because of all the audio that is available for free online.

And this is in easy method to work on: all you need to do is listen to a native speaker and then repeat after they speak. To take this method further you can actually record your audio, and then compare it
to the original recording. What this does is it allows you to compare your version to the original version, and then make any changes that you need to make.

So, using a combination of natural practice and also the focused learning methods I talked about is really going to help you… and my question for this video is this: How often do you speak in English? How often do you speak in English?
