    Red face How to improve English Speaking Skill?

    I am a third year student in English major but until now, I have not spoken English fluently yet. Eventhough I tried any methods I could try, I can not make a progress. I see that my teachers and my friends are able to speak English so well and easily. I understand What they says, even found that They use very simple words to make complete sentences. I also know those words but I can not make an complete sentence like them. i really need a help and instructions to improve English Speaking Skill. Would anyone help me, please? thanks a lot!!!! Loc,

    Re: How to improve English Speaking Skill?

    What's holding you back? If you can get to the bottom of that problem, you might find it easier. Many people, for example, worry about making mistakes when speaking, and this can hold them back- people who worry less about making mistakes and concentrate on trying to get their message across can often progress faster.

    Do you talk to yourself? Many people do this as a way of building up their confidence and fluency. What opportunities do you have to speak?

    Re: How to improve English Speaking Skill?

    Thank for all your time and trouble you have taken to give me advice. It's so interesting and useful. You know, I do not know what has been holding me back. That's reason that until now i am not still able to speak English fluently. However, I often worry about making mistakes in front of the crowd. But I think that is not a main reason because I can practice speaking by myself. Bui it seems not to be improving as well. I have a quite good condition to practice speaking. Can you show me how to use it properly to get success. Thankyou so much!
    Regards,
    Loc,

    Your written English is good, so there has to be a way to use your knowledge when speaking. Do you listen to much English?

    Hello.

    I'm an English learner like you. I'd suggest you talking to yourself and listening to English as much as possible. There are several WEB pages like TED: Ideas worth spreading , YouTube where you can listen to English during all day. Furthermore, I'd suggest you finding pen-pals. It doesn't matter whether they're native speakers or not. I'm sure that if you're an English admirer like me, you'll improve your speaking skills. Just keep practising and you'll see the result.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Why has it written 'listening English' in the above quotation while I learned from ems that we should add to, please?

    Remember that it's "listen to something".

    I am pretty sure Boris is a "he" and not an "it."

    He has made an error. He is not a teacher or a native speaker, so you should not expect perfection.

    Hi Tdol!
    Yes, I am. I often practice listening English whenever I have free time. But it sounds like it does not make me improve my speaking skill!

    Hi Boris!
    Thanks so much for your useful advice! I will try to listen more and more. I hope I can do it! But when we listen, should we take note the common phrases or just listen a cartain track many times until you feel you can know something, Boris? Thanks!
