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!
