  • Hi, good morning, Julian here. So today I have a question from Bhuntay, I hope I pronounced

    嗨! 早安, 我是朱利安. 今天我有個問題,來自Bhuntay,我希望有把你的名字發對音,

  • your name right, and John. Although, actually this question isn't unique to them it is a


  • question that I get asked very, very often. How to improve English speaking skills? So


  • that's the topic of today's video.


  • Okay, so how to improve English speaking skills? I have made videos about this before and basically

    好了,那麼我們如何提升英文口說能力呢? 我曾經做過有關這次主題的影片

  • every person who makes English teaching videos on Youtube has made hundreds of videos about


  • this topic. Yes, there are thousands of videos on Youtube about improving speaking skills.


  • But I'm going to say that, well not just speaking but all English basically comes down to a


  • very simple two-step process. One, learn the language that you need to use in your specific


  • situation and two, do it. It really is that simple. It basically just comes down to those


  • two things. Learn what you need and then use it. And at first it might be difficult but


  • it will get easier over time.


  • This said, here are some tips, free tips, in fact, that will help you make the process


  • a little bit easier and a little bit faster. My first tip is to make very specific goals.


  • This is why I said learn the language that is specific to your situation. And I've talked


  • about this in the videos before, but the different situations need different kinds of English.


  • If you're going to be a news caster you're going to need very different skills to what


  • you're going to need if you just want to have a conversation on travel. If you need to use


  • English in your job for example giving sales presentations overseas, or being an Engineer,


  • or something to do with I.T. or something like that. Each kind of field is going to

    或者是做與I.T.有關的事 等等。每一種領域

  • need its own kind of vocabulary, its own kind of language. So make very specific goals,


  • really think about what you need in your situation and why, and focus on that.


  • My second tip is to focus on vocabulary more than grammar. The reason I say this is because


  • you can communicate a lot with only vocabulary. But with only grammar, you can communicate


  • nothing. And to be honest, although English learners learned a lot of different kinds


  • of grammar like the present simple and then the past progressive, and the past progressive


  • perfect and you know the list just goes on and on. There are so many of these kinds of


  • tenses and grammar forms. But the reality is that we don't actually use most of those


  • most of the time. So yes I guess you do need to learn them although I'm still not too sure


  • whether you actually do or not. I guess yes you do need to learn grammar but no grammar


  • isn't the most important thing. Definitely focus more on vocabulary much more than grammar.


  • Learn the words that you need for your kind of specific situation. Focus on that mainly.


  • My third tip is to try and get used to Speaking in phrases not in individual words. This is


  • where a lot of problem with kind of translating in your head comes from I think. It's kind


  • of the way we people teach in schools, white people get taught in schools. You learn grammar


  • rules and then you use that rule with vocabulary and then you, what you end up doing is you


  • end up having a sentence in your native language and then try to translate it. And that doesn't


  • work very well. Try and get used to speaking in phrases because we do tend to speak in


  • very fixed kind of way. There isn't much, we don't use much creative language if that


  • make sense. For example, this is why we have things like collocations, kind of fixed phrases.


  • You know we always say 'Good morning'. We don't say 'happy morning'. We always say 'ride

    我們常說 "good morning",我們不說 " Happy morning",我們總是說 "ride

  • a bike', we don't say 'take a bike' with the meaning of riding it anyway. Whereas we do

    a bike", 我們不說"take a bike" 雖然利用take有騎的字義。然而,我們卻說

  • say 'take a train' or 'take a taxi' but we don't say 'ride a taxi' so much. Try and get

    'take a train'或是'take a taxi',但我們不常說'ride a taxi'。試著且習慣

  • used to speaking in these kind of chunks, in these kind of phrases and you'll find things


  • to be much, much easier. Because you don't need to rely on grammar rules quite so much.


  • If you want specific exercises for learning these kinds of phrases, these chunks and getting


  • better in using them, check Doing English+. It's not free but I provide a lot of exercises

    並逐漸熟練他們,可點擊'Doing English+' 。雖然不是免費的,但我提供出很多

  • for building fluency with this kind of chunking and using phrases.


  • And that's about it. Again to be honest it really does come down to these two things,


  • learning the language you need then doing it. Again check out Doing English+ for more

    學習你需要的語言,並實踐它。 請上網搜尋 'Doing English+'有更多的

  • kind of specific exercises and things you can do to speed up the process but that is
