  • If youve decided “I need to finally do  something about my speaking skills and  

  • I want to do it as soon as possible”,  Then forget about everything else but  

  • listening and actually speaking.Forget  about writing, reading and grammar.

  • To really develop or improve significantly or  master speaking you need to concentrate solely  

  • on speaking for some period of time and make time  for it. Let all of your time be spent on speaking

  • Obviously you can learn all of it together  - reading, writing but if you focus  

  • on just speaking you will have  a lot more progress in this one  

  • area in a much less amount of time than if  you were to spend it learning it all at once.

  • If you want improvements and you can’t  obtain them doing what youre doing now,  

  • the following is logical - you need to switch  things up. Start doing things differently  

  • and this might be exactly the thing you need.

  • Plus I guarantee that by simply working on your  speaking skills youll boost your confidence,  

  • itll help you with vocabulary and a lot of  grammar rules are going to start to make sense.  

  • And all of these things are going  to happen organically and listening  

  • plays a very important part in this process. You have to listen to English a lot. Your brain  

  • accumulates data and lets you use it in  situations when it’s needed. By listening  

  • youre getting used to the intonation and stress  patterns, to the proper ways of pronouncing words,  

  • to the proper ways of pronouncing the  sounds not mention the language per se.

  • One tip that I’d like to give  you based on my experience:  

  • Get out of your head. Don’t think about  sounding perfect or speaking like a native,  

  • don’t be afraid of making mistakes and  actually go for it. Let yourself make  

  • mistakes and suck. Youll learn from themJust let all of this go and just practice.  

  • Just speak. When you actually practice  regularly improvement will inevitably follow.

  • So for starters all you will have to do is just  copy native speakers. Just repeat after them.  

  • pretty simple right? But I keep literally raving  about this because if you do it, if you really  

  • put in time and effort it really works. It’s one  of the best if not the best method there is to  

  • improve or perfect your speaking skills. Focus just on repeating what  

  • you hear and just on the context. It might be difficult at the beginning to repeat  

  • even one sentence without dropping words or making  mistakes. But it will get better and better

  • And this would be the second important thingmake sure you repeat exactly what people say.  

  • So put on subtitles for starters for sure. If you work on this on your own then please  

  • record yourself because otherwise you might  not catch or even notice that youre repeating  

  • not exactly what was being said. And you need to  be precise so as not to learn incorrect patterns

  • Do it for as long as you can and  as many times a day as you can.

  • Start with one sentence. Then more. And then you  can even repeat conversations. Doing this will  

  • allow you to understand and memorize what and  how to ask and answer in different situations.

  • First choose to repeat what you understand. If  you want to you can search for the meanings of  

  • unknown words. But your main focus should  be on speaking. A lot a lot of speaking.  

  • You need to get used to this process per seYou need to get used to opening your mouth  

  • and producing English words and sentencesAnd sometimes it might be really tiresome.

  • So something simple for starters. One line,  

  • one sentence, but you will be repeating it  for the whole day or perhaps even longer.

  • Accurate pronunciation is a very important  part of speaking and I want to recommend to you  

  • a very useful app that will help you with  your pronunciation - “Elsa Speak”. It’s  

  • an app that will help you improve your  pronunciation, intonation and fluency

  • This is the first of its kind app as it  pinpoints your pronunciation mistakes using  

  • cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology.

  • You can go ahead and download it right now  for free and get 7 days of pro membership  

  • for free., the link is in the description.

  • ELSA Speak currently has 1,600+ lessons  and 40+ topics for you to practice and  

  • great community features for you to  learn from people all over the world

  • Community feature that allows you  to add your friends, colleagues  

  • and compete with a Leaderboard, as well as  

  • Ask for helpbyposting a word youre struggling  with and having friends help you correct it

  • It also has an amazing dictionary that shows  you how to pronounce any words or phrases.

  • Now let’s proceed to the practicing part. Let’s say you’d like to practice some  

  • conversations. It’s going to bebit more advanced as you will hear  

  • one line and then youll need to read your line  out loud without prior hearing it and you get  

  • instant feedback on how you have  done, compared to a native speaker.

  • If youve mispronounced any words you can click  on them and see which sounds were incorrect  

  • and listen to how they are supposed to be  pronounced and practice them. Also you can  

  • click onwatch other people say thisand  watch how native speakers say this phrase.

  • So as you can see you can practice saying  whole sentences, separate words and even  

  • individual sounds and get instant  feedback compared to a native speaker

  • In addition you will be able to pick  up phrases and even sentences for  

  • daily communication and increase your vocabulary.

  • With this app, anyone can speak English.

  • I also have an exclusive  discount for you guys to get  

  • 85% off of ELSA lifetime membership  and 40% off of a one year membership.  

  • All you need to do is just click the  link down below in the description.

  • Then you can try to shadow native speakers. When we shadow we mostly focus on the accuracy  

  • of our pronunciation. However shadowing is  not only about improving your pronunciation,  

  • it’s also about getting used to speakinglearning speaking patterns, the natural way  

  • of using the language and of course vocabulary. I have videos on shadowing and how to improve  

  • your speaking using it. Like we take scenes from  movies or TV series, break the pronunciation down  

  • and I show you how to practice. So if you don’t  know how to do this you can watch and use those.

  • You can mix business with pleasure and  copy your favorite YouTubers that you  

  • watch to learn English. Youll  kill two birds with one stone

  • Youll be repeating the useful information they  give while working on your speaking skills.

  • Just simply sitting by yourself and shadowing  and copying will be 70% of your success.

  • It’s that simple. But at the same time youre  

  • going to have to discipline yourself  because you need to be consistent.

  • Because while having conversations with  other people is definitely something  

  • you need and they will help you  with your communication skills,  

  • developing your speaking skills is  a little bit of a different thing.

  • When youre alone and shadowing or trying to  speak using your own words, you make all sorts  

  • of mistakes (grammar, pronunciation mistakes),  you correct them, say those words again and  

  • again until they come out easily and correctly. Repetition- this is how we learn. If you repeat  

  • something 50 times youll remember it. And that’s the whole point of this - be  

  • able to speak freely without even thinking. And you can most definitely do this with  

  • a teacher if you can’t do this on your  own, you just have to find the right one.

  • But unfortunately when youre inconversation with someone you won’t  

  • interrupt it to correct your mistakes or say  a sentence a couple of times to get it right.

  • So as useful and important as both of  these things are, they aim for different  

  • goals. Thus we need both of them. Think of shadowing as a repetition  

  • before giving a performance. Actors do this, people before  

  • giving speeches or presentations do this. When we  were in school we’d always rehearse our rhymes or  

  • prepare and rehearse answers before exams. And  even when people are about to have important  

  • conversations or meetings they rehearse  or at least go over what they want to say.

  • And that’s why I’m saying that  this method will help you not  

  • just to speak English but speak English fluently. Youll be repeating and learning at the same time  

  • because when you repeat something a lot of  times in a row you memorize it. Youll be  

  • literally learning statements and questions, the  way native speakers naturally say or ask them  

  • and youll be able to recognise the situations  in which you can use them naturally

  • Moreover by doing this regularly youll be  able to express your own thoughts with ease.  

  • Youll see! Needed words and expressions will pop  up in your head just like that and itll seem like  

  • sentences build by themselves and the language  just flows. And in terms of grammar youll be like  

  • native speakers, youll be like:- “well this is  the way I’m supposed to say it. I just know it.”

  • Now I’ve heard so many times people sayIt feels  weird to talk to myself and I don’t have anyone to  

  • talk to”. Honestly nothing I say will help you if  youve already decided that you can’t do anything.  

  • It’s important to be in the right mindset. However  you can certainly use help in this process

  • You can work with teachers. You can find someone to talk to,  

  • to have real conversations and use everything  youve learned in the comments section under this  

  • video or under any video or post about EnglishThis way is very easy, effective and free.

  • You can use different websites for languages  exchange to speak with native speakers.

  • And you know Don’t stress yourself out with  difficult sentences and super smart words.  

  • Youre not an encyclopedia or a professor. Frankly  speaking people really appreciate simplicity.  

  • Just analyse yourself in your native languageDo you feel comfortable talking to people who  

  • use super big words and terms? You don’t have  to prove anything to anyone but yourself. So  

  • just enjoy yourself. If you don’t enjoy speaking  English itll always feel like a burden.

  • If youre having lessons with a teacher ask  them to switch the focus of your lessons to  

  • speaking but only in English. The  moment you cross the threshold of  

  • the classroom you forget about your  native language and use only English

  • It’s not going to be easy but  the results will be worth it.

  • So the point is to concentrate solely  on speaking for some period of time.  

  • It won’t be long until you see  huge improvements in your speech.  

  • It might slightly vary for each person  but you will undoubtably see them

  • Youll be more relaxed about having  conversations and words will come out easier,  

  • youll stop translating in your head and  youll develop the feel for the language.

  • Now don’t forget to head down to the description  box and get your discount on the Elsa Speak app.  

  • I highly recommend using this it, because  it's almost like having a pronunciation  

  • coach in your pocket 24/7. Hope you enjoyed  the video. And I’ll see you in the next one.

If youve decided “I need to finally do  something about my speaking skills and
