Today we are living in a "Global Village". As the Internet explosively grows, ever more people are becoming aware of this "Global Village" on a personal level. People correspond with others from around the globe on a regular basis, products are bought and sold with increasing ease from all over the word and "real time" coverage of major news events is taken for granted. English plays a central role in this "globalization" and it has become the de facto language of choice for communication between the various peoples of the Earth.
Becoming confident and speaking well in a foreign language takes hard work, but it is fully within your ability.
Take ever opportunity with speaking with foreign native speakers. Everytime you meet or have the opportunity to talk with a foreignor speak, ask them questions about their day, about their family, about their work, Just do one thing and speak!
Don't get frustrated. Of course there will be plenty that you do not understand, that's part of learning. You will get better. If you feel silly trying to speak to someone who speaks English fluently, just remember: You speak their language better than they speak yours!
Be patient. Speaking with a native English-speaker may be very difficult at first, but it's ok. Perhaps you are used to hearing your teachers or friends speak with an accent and they are easier to understand. The more you practice with native English-speakers the better you will get. Have patience and keep working at it.
Learn English with a professional teacher if you can do two to three sessions each week. Practicing a language is like working out muscles, it's important to do it regularly to improve. Just like lifting weights or jogging once a year won't help your body get in shape, practicing English infrequently will not be much of a benefit. Set a goal for practicing regularly and stick with it.
Write down words that you do not understand. Ask your teacher or email us and our staff will be happy to explain what the word means and how to use it in a conversation. Afterwards it’s important that you work on memorizing those words so the next time you hear them, you will understand.
Read English books. Reading English books will improve your vocabulary and your grammar, which will help you get more out of your Speak English sessions.
Don't give up on studying. Just because you are practicing speaking doesn't mean you should give up studying other ways too. Continue memorizing vocabulary, taking English classes, and reading English.
