How to practice English when you’re not in the classroom

How to Practice Speaking

  • Schedule time to meet with your classmates and have a discussion in English (topic ideas: what you’re learning, current events, hobbies, etc).
  • Talk to your friends in English instead of your native language.
  • Watch a video on FluentU with English subtitles, click on the word to hear the correct pronunciation, practice speaking that new word many times.
  • Practice pronouncing new words in front of a mirror.
  • Have “shower conversations” (see this video for how to do this).
  • Speak new words slowly at first. Learn how to divide words up into syllables.
