It is a common problem for every student of English. You know lot of words but you are unable to speak. Isn't it strange?
The reasons are many. English is not your mother tongue or you are hesitant because of your nature (and personality), as you may not be too confident and think a lot before you speak. This makes it doubly difficult.
So the key is to start speaking is to initiate and condition your mind to speak English. For that, you need to begin with words, small phrases and sentences. You may have noticed how people try to intersperse their speech with English words. It may not sound too good but it's definitely a good way to build a rhythm.
Just your like brain, your mouth must also get used to speaking. So do speak words. The basic words like:
1. The basic step is to speak words like:
Sure, Certainly, Well, Possibly, Great, Really....when you are talking in your mother tongue.
2. Now to carry on conversation, you don't always need to speak longish sentences. Small phrases and 'two-three words' can do that:
Are you sure?
Are you sane?
I don't believe!
Just do it
It really hurts
These small sentences will work as a foundation for your future fluency. Talking to a person, you don't need to speak longer. By just speaking a few words and letting the other person speak, you will be liked for being a good listener and the other guy will enjoy the conversation.
3. Subsequently you will graduate to bigger sentences:
That sounds interesting!
I'll give you a call
Feel free to ask me
What's your plan?
Can you do me a favour
Am I disturbing you?
You can take that
May I take the liberty to...
Shall I go out for a while
The idea seem interesting
Can you lend me this book...
Sure I have no objection
Do you mind if I take this
I hope you won't be angry...
One these 'strings of words' start coming naturally. It will not be too long before you start speaking longer sentences as your brain-lip coordination will get better and English will become your own language.
This may sound a simple technique. But, once you start practising, be sure that you will effortlessly speak English in future. There will not be any hesitation or hitch and you will be able to express yourself like a native speaker.
The above mentioned words and 'word strings' are just a few examples. You can yourself collect them. If you are really interesting in the language and have a passion for it, you will gather them. Of course, this blog will also help you. Do tell us about what you expect from us.
