How to Speak English Confidently and Naturally

Does speaking in English make you feel uncomfortable? Are you sometimes misunderstood? Is your accent letting you down?

Don't worry, you are not alone. Many people who speak English as a second language have great vocabulary, grammar skills, and knowledge of idioms and slang - but their accent keeps them from sounding like a native speaker.

Every language has its own unique sound pattern that learners naturally, and unconsciously, apply to other languages. But with a little awareness and practice you can easily learn the pattern of natural English and speak English confidently.

How to Improve Speaking in English

To speak English naturally, start by listening to native English speech as much as possible. Listen to movie soundtracks; tune your radio to a (native) English talk channel. Gradually, your English accent will improve, you will be understood more easily, and your speaking confidence will increase.
