Practice wherever you can and wheneveryou can. Any practice is good, whether you speak to someone who is a native Englishspeaker or not.
It's important to build your confidence.If possible, use simple English sentence structure that you know is correct, sothat you can concentrate on getting your message across.
Try to experiment with the English youknow. Use words and phrases you know in new situations. Native English speakersare more likely to correct you if you use the wrong word than if you use thewrong grammar. Experimenting with vocabulary is a really good way of getting feedback.
Try to respond to what people say toyou. You can often get clues to what people think by looking at their bodylanguage. Respond to them in a natural way.
Try not to translate from or into your ownlanguage. This takes too much time and will make you more hesitant.
If you forget a word, do what nativeEnglish speakers do all the time, and say things that "fill" theconversation. This is better than being completely silent. Try using um or er,if you forget the word.
Don't speak too fast. It's important touse a natural rhythm when speaking English. But if you speak too fast, it willbe difficult for people to understand you.
Try to relax when you speak. When youspeak English at a normal speed, you will discover that most of thepronunciation skills, such as linking between words, will happen automatically.
Don't be shy to speak! The more youpractise, the more confident you'll become.
