Never be scared to speak English
Yes, never be reluctant to speak the English you have learned so far. You must not be perfect before you start communicating in English neither is it a strict requirement that you must begin speaking only Queens English. Gradually walk up your learning curve, make mistakes and learn. The good thing is the more you speak in English irrespective of your errors, the more you tend to wrap yourself around it getting more acquainted to the deeper rudiments of the language. One secret is try to jump into conversation in English language as much as possible. It doesn’t mean you are trying to show off how good you are, or trying to be clownish with how poor your English is. The more you speak, the more inside you get into the nerves that connect the language.
Lastly you can try English movies
English movies are immensely helpful in improving your English language. You can choose an interesting movie whose English level matches yours. It would be a huge addition if the movie had subtitles. Then flow along with the movie. Aside this, movies help you with the correct pronunciation, especially ‘how things are said’. You can watch one movie all over and over again, say one with a subtitle. The trick is the more you watch the movie, the more relaxed you are watching it since it is now less suspenseful and predictable. This will now take the agitation and excitement off positively, giving you enough calm to focus on learning the words proper.
So far these steps will help you improve your English language. Remember, this is not the journey of just a day. It is quite gradual and procedural. Don’t push yourself too much, learn gently at your own pace. We would really love to hear you speak Queens English.
