1. Learn English to match the proficiency you have with your own native language. The words, phrases and sentence construction that you are familiar with in your own language are easier to relate to than a totally new manner of speaking. In short, you are able to communicate in your own language and being familiar with your own style of conversation will give you a degree of confidence going forward. As you progress, you will discover new words and phrases that will improve your English communication skills. The basic idea is being able to communicate in English; perfecting your speech will follow.
2. Translate services are a great way to get started with your learning program. Write down a typical conversation you would have on any given day and use translate services to convert your work into English. Select key words from your work and see how the words are connected together to form a sentence. Memorise key sentences that you can easily link to your own language.
3. Pronunciation is important. If you do not pronounce a word correctly, people will not be to follow your message. Listen to English Audio books and have a print copy of the book with you. Highlight your key words and record yourself saying these words then compare your pronunciation to the audio book pronunciation.
4. Make friends with English speaking people or people who have a higher command of English than you. Speak English with them as often as you can. Join online English forums; watch English movies and listen to English music. Surround yourself with English.
5. This is the most important tip of all. Practise, practise, practise… In order to enjoy learning English, you have to be motivated. You also have to find enjoyment in the learning process. Motivate yourself to always be excited to take your next step to English fluency.
“For example” are words to definitely included in your conversations with other.
Here is an example of what I mean…
Little boy in class: “Teacher, I got no pencil.”
Teacher: “No Sam, you say, I have no pencil, you have no pencil, we have no pencils.”
Sam: “Then who got the pencils?”
The teacher forgot to use the phrase “for example” and this resulted in little Sam being confused about the whereabouts of the missing pencils.
In general people are very serious in life and it is only when you become familiar with the personalities that you are able to lighten up to life a little. We literally have to spoon feed strangers into understanding what we are all about, so, always remember to use “for example” when using an example to try and get people to understand you.
