    Lightbulb the tune of speaking

    Have a good time. I'm a student from Taiwan. I have spent a lot of years learning English. But there is bottleneck that I can't breakthrough. That is, I hope that when I speak English, I can speak smoothly like a foreigner. How to change or improve the tune of speaking?

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good afternoon, Wendy.

    (1) Don't worry: you WILL have a breakthrough.

    (2) Just keep practicing. You know that old saying: Practice

    makes perfect. It's true.

    (3) It's imperative that you interact regularly with people who speak

    only English -- tourists, business people, etc.

    (a) You will be forced to use English if you wish to communicate with

    them.

    (4) I have known some people who came to the States not knowing

    any English. They did not attend language classes. They simply lived

    life -- got jobs where only English was spoken, lived among English-

    speaking people, etc. Gradually (it DID take time!) they started under-

    standing and speaking English without realizing it.

    (5) Your breakthrough WILL come. TIME is your best teacher.

    Good luck!
