Rules for Speaking English Fluently

Don't study grammar too much
It may be amazing for ESL students, but it is most important. If you want to clear examinations, then study grammar. However, if you want to be fluent in English, then you should learn English without grammar.
Grammar slowly and intrigue. They will tell about the rules when creating sentences instead of naturally, to think a sentence like a native speaker. Note that only a small fraction of English to more than 20% of all the rules of grammar to learn. Many ESL students know more grammar than native speakers.
Learn and study phrases
Most of the students learn vocabulary and try to put numerous words collectively to create a correct sentence. It amazes how many words some of students know, but they cannot create a good sentence. The reason is because they didn't study phrases. When children learn a language, they learn both words and phrases mutually. Likewise, you require to study and learn phrases.
If you recognize 1000 words, you might not be able to say one proper sentence. But if you know 1 phrase, you can create hundreds of correct sentences. If you know 100 phrases, you will be amazed at how many correct sentences you will be capable to say. You will be almost a fluent English speaker when you know only a 1000 phrases.
The English Speaking Basics section is a good example of making many sentences with a single phrase. So don't spend hours to learning lot of different words. Use that time to study phrases instead and you will be closer to English fluency.

Don't translate
If you want to make an English sentence, do not translate the words from your Mother tongue. The arrangement of words is perhaps totally different and you will be both sluggish and incorrect by doing this. Instead, learn phrases and sentences so you don't have to consider about the words you are saying. It should be regular.
One more problem with translating is that you will be trying to include grammar rules that you have learned. Thinking and translating the grammar to create English sentences is wrong and should be avoided.
Reading and Listening is NOT enough. Practice speaking what you hear
Listening, Reading and speaking are the most vital aspects of any language. The same is true for English. However, speaking is the only necessity to be fluent. It is usual for kids and children to learn speaking first, become fluent, then begin reading, then writing. So the normal order is listening, speaking, reading and then writing.

1st Problem
Isn't it odd that schools across the globe teach reading first, then writing, then listening, and finally speaking? Even if it is dissimilar, the main cause is because when you learn a second language, you have to to read material to recognize and learn it. So even though the natural order is listening, speaking, reading, then writing, the order for ESL students is reading, listening, speaking, and then writing.
2nd Problem
The reason a lot of people can read and listen is because that's all they do. But in order to speak English smoothly, you need to practice speaking. Don't stop at the listening portion, and when you study don't just listen. Speak out noisy the material you are listening to and practice what you listen. Practice speaking out loud until your mouth and brain can act it without any try. By doing so, you will be capable to speak English fluently.

Submerge yourself
Speak a language is not connected to how elegant you are. Anyone can learn how to speak any language. This is a confirmed fact by everyone across the globe. Everyone can speak at least one language. Whether you are smart, or missing some brain power, you are able to speak one language.
In your country, you hear and speak your language continually. You will observe that various people who are good English speakers are the ones who studied in an English speaking institute. They can speak English not because they go to an English speaking school, but because they had surroundings where they can be around English speaking people regularly.
There are also some people who study overseas and learn extremely slight. That is because they went to an English learning school, but found people from their own nation and didn't practice English.
You don't need to go anyplace to become a fluent English speaker. You only need to surround yourself with English. You can do this by making rules with your friends that you will only speak English. Submerge yourself in English and you will learn several times quicker.

Study correct material
A common phrase that is incorrect is, "Practice makes perfect." This is far from the truth. Practice only makes what you are practicing everlasting. If you practice the wrong sentence, you will have perfected saying the sentence incorrectly. Therefore, it is essential that you study material that is usually used by the majority of people.
Another difficulty is that many students study the news. However, the language they speak is more official and the content they use is more political and not used in routine.  It is significant to understand what they are saying, but this is more of an advanced lesson that should be studied after learning the basics of English.

You should be conscious of the pros and cons of speaking with a non native speaking friend. Practicing with a non native person will give you practice. You can also encourage each other and point out basic mistakes. Use these practice times as a time period to practice the correct stuff you learn. Not to study how to say a sentence.
In short, study English material that you can trust, which is commonly used is correct.


  1. Hi! Good tips. I think submersion is probably the most important. Increasing your daily exposure to the language will get you used to it.

  2. I think you mean Immersion. Submersion is to sink into water.
