There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    You can download many English podcasts in the internet and listen how native speakers speak and you can also watch movie that you like.
    Listen everyday and try to copy them.
    to practice speaking you can just tell stories to yourself grammatically and If you don't mind you can tell you stories with me in skype.

    This is what I do to improve my spoken English.
    1. I find topics for speaking examinations and I answer the topics.
    2. I try to explain things around me (speaking to myself). For example : A computer is ... Cats are...
    3.Listening English native speaker and then try to copy their Intonation, their pronunciation, their ways to answer questions, or to express feelings. How they greet people, how to ask permission. and so on.
    4. I try to "skype" with other people. you can "skype" with me.

    You dont need English native speaker to practice speaking.
    You need to have Passion to improve It and then you will see "the How".

    @amrtarekhassan knowing and mastering are two different things.
    to know english grammer I studied it only in one month.
    to master english grammar I need to use it everyday without absence.
    because when I try to use englsih Instantly, I make many grammar mistakes. therefore I correct myself or ask someone to correct me. I suppose It is okay to make mistakes when we learn.
    also I don't forget to read and listen how native speaker actually use grammar in daily habits.
    the conclusion is to master english grammar we need to use It everyday without absence and be aware about grammar.

    Hi @Rafiarema, ok you are right , but how we practice on grammar every day , the daily chat or voice can not be consider as a grammar practice ..
    what i mean , that i have this problem , i can chat , write and read English well, but i can't speak with it instantly , some time i wait to make the sentence in my head then i speak it , it make me very embarrassing .. :neutral:

    @amrtarekhassan It's not embarassing. English's not our mother's language.
    Even we might make mistake in our native language.

    If you listen to native English speakers attentively, you'll find that they speak with grammar rules, maybe not formal textbook grammar but they use tenses and other rules to express their thought.

    If you often hear and use English everyday. At least you will not say " He are", or "You is" anymore. And That is how you learn speaking English correctly.

    Try to tell your stories in past tenses and your plan in future tenses.
    Try to notice how native English speakers express their feelings and convey their thought , and than copy them.
    That is how we practice English grammar in conversations.

    Have you checked out the Skype sessions that are run by the Forum @amrtarekhassan? There's information on these on the LEO homepage.

    Grammar is something that you can learn from the book to a large extent @puji, so don't be disheartened. But you can practice using your grammar skills here in the Forum and if you have any questions, why not share them. I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

    Hi @mheredge , thank you for your answer, I really appreciate it.
    I haven't tried the Skype sessions before, but I will as soon as possible.
    I hope it help :smile:
