The majority of young English learners hope that they can have fluent spoken English like native English speakers, but to achieve that level, they must master the correct methods. With more than ten years of teaching experience, foreign teachers in Beijing tell us that in order to improve spoken English, we must avoid the following misunderstandings.
1. Don't pay too much attention to grammar.
Long-term exam-oriented education makes us feel that grammar is very important, even some topics rely on skilled grammar rules to do, but in oral English, grammar is not so important, especially for those who are just beginning to learn English. A lot of long-term grammar learning will make you think too much when you speak, you will always consider: after all, what is the grammar rules of this sentence, do I lack subject-predicate-object when I speak like this?
Relaxation is an important condition for us to practise spoken English well. To improve spoken English, it is important to dare to speak and practice more to have fluent spoken English.
2, phrases are more important than words.
Many English learners feel that vocabulary is the first condition for us to learn English well. It is difficult to improve spoken English without enough words to support it. In fact, this idea is wrong. Learning effective phrases is more important than words. The basic component of spoken English is a large number of phrases. After accumulating certain phrases, you can cope with all the daily conversations, which is very helpful to enhance your confidence in English learning.
3, increase the proportion of reading.
Don't think that reading is not helpful to improve spoken English. Listening, speaking, reading and writing are interlinked. Foreign teachers of spoken English suggest that we read more original English books, because the original books can better reflect the author's English thinking, and play a very good role in cultivating learners'English thinking and sense of English.
