    If possible, try picking up words and phrases from netive English speakers. You can learn native ways of phrasing what you want to say. Sometimes it's better than composing English sentences by yourself.

    Hi, glad to have such a nourishing forum. I am a student from Pakistan. I am seeking every effort for english speaking enhancement. As it is required term for our education. I need anyone who could speak with me in skype. The one should also have to judge my grammer and mistakes as well. I will be very thankful

    > Hallo everyone, I and the other new member need help from you. As we know, we are the beginner english learner got some problem to understand this language, like can't understand when we watch a conversation of movie or some video, confused what their said on the video, defficulity when we want to speak, fear of being wrong in the use of the verb. Do you have a special trick, to cope with such things?
    > Thanks Before. Sory my english not good :)

    I think it is my problem too, I still didn't know what should I do.

    speak english as much as you can so it will be fresh in your mind and you dont forget the vocab and be confident.

    We should think about the way we learnt our native language, it was a mixture of sounds associated to symbols and objects, songs, repetition, and so on... So in my opinion to simplify the process of learning as much as we can could be a good way to better introduce ourselves in a language

    It's taken me, and it's still taking me so long to really feel that I've mastered English. I still don't feel that I'm qualified to say that I can really speak English. But here's what I think we can do to improve our speaking skills of English.

    Take a walk in the town, or go into a grocery store. Imagine that you're taking someone from English speaking country. He doesn't know much about your country. Next, as you stroll around, imagine that your imaginary foreign friend asks you about what he sees. He keeps asking you questions, even about things that are too obvious to you. Now, try to explain them in English. You'll realize how many very essential words you're lacking. This way you can learn new words.

    I've met with a couple from France a few days ago. I had to walk around the meeting place before I actually met them because I didn't know if they might be interested in what was around the meeting place. By doing this preparation, I've learned what these fish were called in English: mackerel. Words that you remember like this, I bet you won't forget easily.
