1. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
Your goal is to deliver a message, not speak perfect English, with the right grammar and vocabulary. Even native English speakers make mistakes!
2. Practice, practice, practice
Practice makes perfect. Constantly look for opportunities to test out your spoken English. Busuu’s Conversations feature, for instance, provides an easy way to speak English and get feedback from native speakers around the world.
The more you hear, the easier it will be for you to speak better English. You’ll start speaking more fluently and confidently in conversations, learning how to give your opinions in English with new expressions and idioms.
4. Celebrate success.
Every time you talk to someone in English is an achievement. Every single interaction you have, no matter how small, will help you improve your skills over time. Be proud of your progress.
Speak, speak, speak!
Be confident and speak as often as possible to as many people as you possibly can! Do not be shy to make mistakes! The more you practice the better and more confident you will become in your pronunciation and vocabulary. Remember, speaking is a skill like learning a musical instrument or new sport – the only way you can get good is to actually do it!
