There are different processes to learn English or earn English fluency. But all of those methods are not practical. In this article on “How to speak English fluently and confidently,” we will show you the easiest methods so that you can learn to speak English fluently in a very short time.

Step by Step guide on How to speak English fluently and confidently

Earn confidence or start to believe in yourself – Before you begin to learn how to speak English fluently and confidently, you need to gather some self-confidence. You need to start believing in yourself that you can do it.

No doubt we have set a belief in our minds since our childhood that English is a tough language and it is almost impossible to speak English. But this is nothing but a blind belief. In this world, everything is tough until we go through it.

Spoken English is also not an exception. You can definitely speak English if you believe in yourself. Now probably you have a question in your mind. “How can I earn self-confidence?” okay, we will discuss this in the latter part of this article.

Listen and learn English speaking – Yes, You have read it right. It is said that “listen and learn English speaking”. Learning a language always begins with listening. You need to listen carefully before you try to learn how to speak English fluently and confidently.

CONFUSED?

Let me make it clear.

Have you paid attention to the learning process of a baby?

Since his/her birth a baby listens carefully to every word that has been spoken in front of him/her. Gradually he starts to repeat the words that he/she listens to.

Then he/she learns to join words and starts to speak the short sentence. Though he or commits some minor mistakes at the initial stage, later he/she himself/herself makes it correct by listening to his/her elders.

This is the process.

In order to learn how to speak English fluently and confidently, you need to start with listening. Try to listen as much as possible. You can watch English movies, songs, and different videos on the internet.

You can also collect some newspapers or novels and give them to your friend to read it aloud.

Collect words and their meaning – In the next step, you need to collect some simple English words and try to find out their meaning. As you know that word stock is very necessary to learn spoken English.

When you start to collect words, in the initial stage don’t go for difficult words. Try to collect simple words. Don’t forget to keep the meaning of those words in your memory. Let me give you some detailed descriptions so that you can gain some confidence.

For how much time have you been trying to learn spoken English?

One month?

A year?

Probably more than that.

If you had collected or memorized 2 words per day for the last 6 months, today you would have around 360 words. Do you believe you can make hundreds and thousands of sentences with those 360 words?

That is why try to learn how to speak English fluently and confidently in a gradual process rather than going for how to speak English fluently and confidently in 30 days,15 days,7 days, etc.

I have said that because you know that our brain needs less time to collect information, but it needs time to preserve information. If you try to learn English in just 30 days, definitely you will end up with nothing but only you will lose your precious 30 days.

Try to make the short sentence with simple words – This is the most important stage of learning spoken English

In order to know how to speak English fluently and confidently, you must earn the confidence to make short and simple sentences of your own. In this stage, you need to make small sentences. For example, you have the following words –

I, He, She, do, play, football, rice, tall, boy, eat, her, work, etc.

Already you have learned the meaning of these words. Now let’s make some sentences using these words.

I play

When you write or speak “I play”, definitely a question comes to your mind. What play?

RIGHT?

Then you add football after the sentence and now your sentence is –

‘I play football’.

Again …

You can write or speak

She do her work.

Definitely ‘do’ is not appropriate after ‘She’. But don’t forget you are at the initial stage of spoken English. So, this is not a serious mistake. If you say she do her work, the listener will surely understand what you intend to say.

We will learn how to make these silly mistakes correct in the latter part of the article. In this way try to make small sentences and apply those sentences in different situations.  In this stage, you are strictly advised to avoid grammar.

In spoken English grammatical mistakes are always avoided. A language is used to express our feelings. Grammar is used to make the language more meaningful and beautiful as well.

So In order to learn how to speak English fluently and confidently, you don’t need all grammatical conceptions.
