  • This question has appeared many number of times in this forum and there was always great participation from the members. I wish to state that instead of referring some books on improving spoken English, the author can consider having interaction with fellow persons or friends at the home or in office and never feel shy to talk. Before hand you tell the persons that you are in the learning process of English and hence they must correct you, if you are telling wrong or drifting away from the topic. That way you can expertise learning this beautiful language. Mind it no one was perfect in the beginning and every one learned through a process.

  • Every language has two parts, spoken and written. In India, in earlier days we used to give importance on the writing part of learning English. Now with the increasing importance of communication in English, spoken English is gaining popularity. The steps which are required to be taken to speak English are indicated below:-

    (a) Read English newspaper by making sounds. Try to learn difficult words and also their usage in sentences.
    (b) Allocate at least 30 minutes everyday and give a speech about a chosen topic in English in front of a mirror.
    (c) Try to form a group of friends and practice speaking English among the friends in the group.
    (d) Join an institute for practice of speaking in English.
    (e) Speak in English in 'appropriate' surroundings. Note the stress on 'appropriate', not on 'all'.
    (f) Most importantly, don't discontinue the habit of speaking English at a later stage. Remember practicing is the only way to speak fluently. It is applicable for all languages.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

  • The best way to learn how to speak a language, it's usage in our day to day life. The person who wants to improve his speaking skills should do this by public speaking and using the language as much as they can in their normal conversation.
    And even if they don't find anyone who speak, they can practice in front of a mirror or with any non living thing. And other than these things sites like ISC are one of the best platforms to improve these skills though the peoples don't have interaction here by speaking, but responding to the views of others thoughts also improves a person 's command over the language.
    If someone have time enough watching Hollywood movies, reading novels, etc., is not a bad idea these things not only enhances vocabulary, but also boost up a person's confidence in speaking the language.
