Yes, you read that right. Most of us don’t have a habit of talking to ourselves. But what do you know? It is actually a proven fact that talking to yourself has many advantages.
Talking to yourself is probably one of the easiest ways to learn English. You have nothing to be scared about because even if you make a mistake, no one is going to laugh at you.
What you need to do is, whenever you are alone or even around family members you should just talk to yourself freely. It doesn’t matter what you say as long as it’s in English. This will help you eliminate the fear you have of talking in front of people.
It will help you gain confidence and improve your fluency in the language.
2. Set A Time To Study

Setting aside a time of the day to study will help you focus and concentrate better. What usually happens if you don’t keep a specific is, you tend to feel lazy and procrastinate.
You keep saying you will do it later but later never comes. Before you know it, you are doing this every day and cannot achieve your goals.
To keep yourself disciplined you should have a time of the day in which you can do all your studying and practice. This will help you improve gradually at a constant pace.
3. Use A Designated Workspace
Now when I say workspace, I mean make a part of your home just yours. If not throughout the day then at least during your study time.
Take a part of your home and remove everything from there that can distract you. All you need is your computer or laptop, a book and a pen. If needed you can add a few more things.
Make sure you don’t add things like video games or television. They will definitely break your concentration.
Use this workspace every day to study or practice your English speaking. Doing this will help you focus and learn better.

7. Try Tongue Twisters In English
Do you know what tongue twisters are? Well, for those who don’t, tongue twisters are a sentence of words or sounds that are not easy to say quickly.
An example of a tongue twister is she sells seashells by the seashore.
There are many more that you can find on Google. Try saying them fast and for a few times in a row. It sounds easy but I assure you it’s not.
Tongue twisters help you get the right pronunciation and help you express words with more effect. It is also a very fun way to learn.
8. Read Aloud
When you read English books or magazines you should always read aloud. It doesn’t matter if you are the only one in the room.
Reading aloud will help you practice pronunciation and will also help you frame sentences better.
When you speak to someone your English should not only be good but you should also be able to pronounce words correctly. In order to do that you need to practice. Reading aloud will help you do that.
If in case you get stuck and don’t know how to pronounce a word don’t worry, you can just use Google.
9. Translate Into English
This is one of the simplest ways to learn English speaking. What you are going to do is, rehearse in your mind what you want to say. If you get stuck on any word just translate it from your native language to English.
This will help you learn English and it won’t even be difficult.
Not just words but also sentences. You can say it in your mind and then translate it into English. Then you can speak freely and without any hesitation.
It’s okay to take a few minutes before speaking. In fact, we should make it a habit to do so.
10. Practice Speaking For Specific Situations
There are certain situations that you can predict. For example, you are going to the market and will have to speak to the shopkeeper or you are going to a party with your friends and will want to speak in English.
Before such situations occur, you can practice what you want to say. When you are at home act like you are speaking to your friend or a shopkeeper or whoever you prefer. Then, speak the way you actually would.
Don’t get nervous if you get stuck. That’s why you’re practicing. You can take as long as you need to perfect yourself. Once you have, you will be able to speak fluently in those situations.
11. Learn Phrases
Along with learning proper English, you should also know phrases. Not that it is necessary but it makes you a good conversationalist.
When you learn and know phrases you can use them in a conversation while talking to your friends or neighbours. Using phrases gives you an edge. This means it puts you a little higher than the people you are talking to.
You can easily slip phrases into a conversation. For example, if you are talking about someone being curious you can say “She was too curious. You know what they say, curiosity killed the cat” or if you are talking about a group of people who are the same you can say, “They are all the same. Birds of a feather, flock together”
Phrases are easy and simple to learn. Why not try it? I’m sure you will have a lot of fun with it.
12. Set Your Goals
You need to take a sheet of paper and write down what your goals are. You also have to write down when you want to achieve those goals.
When you are done, take that paper and keep it near your designated workspace. This paper is going to help you get through the tough times.
Every time you feel disappointed or feel like giving up, I want you to take a look at this paper. If you want to achieve your goals you cannot give up when things get hard. What you need to do is, stay positive and work harder.
Focus on your goals and work towards them.
13. Practice Every Chance You Get
Practice is the most important thing you need to do. If you want to be the best and achieve the goals you need to practice.
Practice every chance you get whether you have someone to practice with or even if you are alone.
Practice makes a man perfect. You do want to be perfect, don’t you? If you think you don’t need it, unfortunately, you are wrong. No matter how good you think you are you still need to practice to get better.
