    "Speaking skills"

    Improving "language proficiency" is always talked about. The way of fluency and accuracy in one's speaking is also important.

    As I understood, writing and reading may help one at first if they feel like speaking. He/she learns and then uses new words and expressions through the both skills above. Reading may increase the number of new vocabularies, phrases and so on. then they will be used properly in writing. Those learned expressions would be produced by speaking in real situations.

    Standing in front of the "mirror" and speaking by oneself may improve one's speaking skill too.

    Would you please add more examples to move forward speaking skill by itself?

    Do you mean ways of practising alone?

    Listening to English speaking Radio and TV Channels and movies are very helpful. If you don't have enough free times to focus on them, just do your normal works and let them be on. You'll get the lessons in your unconcious memory.

    Yes, writing down whatever we hear from T.V channels and, especially radio can be very useful.

    Imagine interviewing yourself- gives you two sides of a conversation.

    You can also find the Pimsleur English for your region. It's the best oral program out there -- that can be mentioned here.
