5 English Language Tips to Improve Your Speaking Skills

The easiest advice to give to improve your spoken English is to tell you to take English classes in kl. However, you can improve your level of spoken English faster by taking matters into your own hands. There is no overnight success tip to speaking more fluently. Don’t think that these tips are something you can do once and instantly increase your vocabulary or ability to use verb tenses correctly. These tips require you to apply them on a regular basis over an extended period of time. With practice, however, you will see that you are able to carry on conversations more easily. Listen to English Every Day Turn on the radio to the BBC or Voice of America. Listen to these radio stations online at BBC Learning English or VOA Learning English. These last two websites offer lessons and short news articles with audio and transcripts. You can also watch television shows or movies online or on DVDs. Try to listen without the subtitles. If there is a word you didn’t understand, rewind it, and listen again. Turn on the subtitles if you need to see the word. Then turn them off again.

6 Fun and Engaging English Language Learning Games for Adults

Adults and children alike learn a new language best in an engaging, low-stress environment. The secret is repetition, repetition, repetition; most students need to encounter a new word 30-40 times before they truly learn it. But how do you make sure your students get the repetition they need along with the fun they crave? Check out these games below, which promise to liven up any adult language course.   1. Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Theater Pick 4-5 new verbs or nouns you want your students to learn, and place translations in an easy-to-read location. Then tell a story incorporating these words, using student actors to help you. Have your class shout out suggestions for characters, locations, and plot twists; the crazier, the better! 2. Bingo This classic game can provide your students with some great pronunciation practice. As students cover up the words you announce, have them repeat the word aloud. 3. Picture telephone Have students sit in a row. The first person in the row writes 2-3 sentences in English on any topic; the next draws a picture depicting what s/he wrote. Have students pass the paper down the line, alternating words and pictures. The catch: make sure each student folds the paper so that the next student can only see the drawing or text that came immediately before. When you’ve run out of space, unfold the paper to see some hilariously mixed messages! 4. Flyswatting Write new vocabulary on a large poster or piece of chart paper. Divide your class into two teams, and give one student from each team a flyswatter. As you say a word, students race to...
