6 Rules to Speaking English

 

What is the secret to speaking English?

 

The first rule is:

 


1.Make mistakes! It is only after we try and fail that we get better. What is most important is speaking, writing and making mistakes. You don’t have to say it perfectly the first time. The most important thing is to try. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. So rule number 1 is make mistakes and don’t worry about what other people think. The only way I ever got better at something was by making mistakes. Always, listen to yourself and say “Yes, you can”.

And of course rule number 2 is

2. Be patient and never give up! Learning a language is not an elevator ride. It’s a walk up a staircase. Every step you take, every mistake you make, you get better and better, step by step. Make the decision to be better than you were yesterday. Take one step forward every day and decide that you will never give up. Even if you learn one new word today, that is one more word you didn’t know yesterday. So be patient and never give up!

And this brings me to rule number 3

3. Take physical action – Nothing is going to happen by lying down waiting and listening. The only way to improve is to move. For you to improve something must move. Your mouth must move, your hand must move, your brain must move. Then, and only then will you improve. A golfer never got any better by just watching golf videos or just listening to their instructor. They went out on the range and hit ball after ball after ball. And so it is for you. You need to speak or write word after word after word. So just remember you can’t learn anything by lying on your back! Take action!

4. Find a good teacher – My mentor once told me. There is no such thing as a bad student, only a bad teacher. Get a great teacher that will be there to help you, coach you and make it fun for you. The people that get the best results have the best coaches to motivate and push you to achieve. So rule number 3, is find a good teacher that will help you every step of the way. Don’t do it by yourself. Get a strong support system by finding a good teacher.

5. Don’t learn textbook English – I’ve never enjoyed talking to someone that sounded like a textbook. How are you? I’m fine, thank you. And you? Isn’t real English but if you want to be a robot then yes, this is the best English to learn. But seriously search for useful English that is used every day for everyday people. This way you won’t waste time learning English that is never used or sound like an old school text book.
