    Firstly, you have to try to identify the reason for this. Often students feel shy about speaking because they are scared of making mistakes, which is a wrong approach. It doesn't matter of you make mistakes as long as you get your message across. Is the class dominated by a few speakers or do a lot of people speak? If it's just a few, then try to break in. Be an animated listening- nod you head, make agreeing or disagreeing sounds, then start to participate. Speaking can be a bit like getting into a cold swimming pool- you have to take the plunge at some stage and once you do, you'll find that it's fine.
