    Exclamation Tips to improve spoken english

    Hello,

    This is San from India, I urge your tips to enhance my spoken communication skill. While I write I remember more phrasal & idioms to add extra flavor to my English however while speak I couldn't even use any single phrasal verbs. Please suggest me to get rid of this.

    Thanks,
    Santhosh

    Re: Tips to improve spoken english

    There's no great need to add extra flavour to language- it can often be unnecessary and can lead to confusion instead of clarity. What kind of situations do you speak English in? If there are any repeated situations, like meetings, then it could be easy to plan some phrasal verbs to practise.

    Actually I'm a trainer, I'm used to speak with US clients often and sometimes becoming perplexed because of the vocabularies they use. So I'm wanting some tips to match my English with Native speaker.

    Naturally, you'd first want to learn all of the vocabulary used in the field in which your are a trainer. If it were me, I'd read books and pamphlets in English that refer to that field.

    Many Americans are addicted to sports metaphors which can be utterly perplexing to foreigners unfamiliar with baseball and American football.

    Is it possible to write them down so that you can find out their meanings later?
