How to learn spoken English the easy way

Speaking is actually the easy way of improving your spoken English. Easy, but at the same time the hard way. If you don’t have the possibility of traveling to an English-speaking country or the good fortune of having an English-speaking friend, this method is not an option for you. But there is a solution. It may sound a bit creepy, but talking to yourself is the answer in this particular situation. The good ol’ talking to yourself. We all do that from time to time. Why not do it in English? Not necessarily out loud. Use your thoughts. The accent sounds better now in your mind, but in time your actual accent will improve too.

Read your favorite books in English

What better way is there to get used to English grammar in context than reading your favorite books in English? I for one started with Harry Potter because it is easy to read and it does not use complex vocabulary. But you can choose any book you want. Just make sure it matches your proficiency level. Seeing the English grammar in context will help you assimilate the information faster and learn to use it successfully yourself.

Don’t overthink it

Go with the flow and let the inductive method work. Trust your instinct. In time, once you get used to the language, you’ll be able to speak English as easily as you speak your native language. Don’t calculate your next ten moves. Instead, think directly in English and just speak. If you overthink a phrase now, you’ll overthink it forever.
