Learning a new language can be a very difficult experience. Often, even years of study can leave you with good reading skills, but still uncomfortable with making conversation. Following a few steps can increase your confidence and open up the world of conversation in English.

  • Absorb a lot of English. Read books, websites, and magazines. Watch English-language television and movies. This will help you learn normal conversational English. But be careful, creative reading is more important than reading for reading.
  • Start simple. Speak to a friend or coworker. If you and your friends normally do not speak English, try speaking English for a day. Practicing in a supporting environment can build confidence for students of any language.
  • Avoid confusing topics. Although you may have an incredible insight into religion or politics, such topics can make a conversation unpleasant.
  • Ask questions. If you do not understand what the other person says, do not be afraid to ask.
  • Practice often. The more you speak English, the more comfortable you will become. Speak, read, and write English whenever you have the chance.
