Techniques to improve English speaking skills

One day I asked my students:

 How do you get better at speaking English? 

My question was about how they self-study English. Specifically the speaking skill. Some responded with apps, websites or communities. Others responded with offline techniques. The important thing is that STUDENTS find these valuable and helpful. It’s not what TEACHERS think is best for them. Sometimes TEACHERS and STUDENTS are aligned and sometimes they aren’t. And that’s ok. 🙂

Here’s what students use to improve their English speaking skills.

APPS AND WEBSITES

COMMUNITIES

  • Record your voice and think about your mistakes and correct them
  • Change the language of your phone/computer to English for a week
