So if you want to improve you speaking skills, you need to spend more of your study time on speaking.
Shadowing is an extremely useful tool for increasing fluency as well as improving your accent and ability to be understood. It might seem simple, but the best way to get better at public speaking is to practice as much as possible. One of the best ways to appear prepared and confident in what you are presenting is to make eye contact with your audience.
Dorit Sasson has written articles for a variety of journals, magazines, newsletters, and ezines like Reading Today, Essential Teacher, Teacher and Principal Quarterly, the Internet TESL Journal, WAHM Online, and many others. Dorit holds both graduate and undergraduate degrees in English literature from the University of Haifa.
What do you do when students don’t want to put that extra mile to do a speaking presentation, so they get cold feet and read from their notes just to get by. Improving the speaking skills of your students may be difficult, but the added benefit is building confidence in students for speaking skills and strategies in a foreign or second language.
1.Another teaching activity involves asking questions or presenting statements that are not true about themselves, and then asking their friends to decide whether they are true or false. Remember, the more diverse and creative your speaking activities become, the easier it will be to train your students to improve their speaking skills and speaking exercises will become much more automatic. I’ll be giving away a FREE teaching report on how to improve fluency in English language learners to those who leave a comment at the New Teacher Resource Center. But, if you prepare lines ahead of time, you won’t be at a loss for words in conversations.
Shadowing helps create all the neural connections in your brain to produce those words and sentences quickly and accurately without having to think about it.
Whether you’re presenting your project or giving a speech, it can cause anxiety and major stress.
Practice to yourself in the mirror and go over your speech points until they are practically memorized. Remember to look at all sides of the room to make each member of the audience feel like they are connected to you.
She teaches ESL (English as a Second Language) reading and writing courses at CCAC Allegheny Community College, and is the creator of the New Teacher Resource Center. She has taught English language learners in various schools in Israel for the last eleven years and returned to live back in the States in the summer of 2007.
Improving speaking skills takes a lot of classroom practice, motivation to speak, and skill.
Even though the professional years are still way in the future, help your students by starting small.

Depending on the variety of visual resources and class level and ability, a teacher can brainstorm with the class a variety of sentences, (key) words, and phrases around a particular category or situational context that is the building block for a presentation. Now…I hope you’ll visit the next site on the blog chain sponsored by the National Writing for Children Center. The reason for this is obvious: When language learners first start learning a language, they usually start with reading. This will help you not only to learn how to say the words, but how to say them in the right context. Also, as mentioned in tip #1, shadowing helps develop the muscle memory in all the physical parts responsible for the production of those sounds. If you review and repeat lines again and again, you’ll be speaking better, faster and with more confidence. Practice speaking every chance you get: whether it’s ordering coffee, shopping or asking for directions.
As scary as it may be, being a good public speaker is a great trait to have, not only for your high school and college days, but for your future career. Use a video camera or voice recorder and record your presentation; play it back to find out where you could do better.
So most of the communication at international level happens only in English and today India is not behind in the race of Globalization and therefore India is the 2nd biggest country in the world in the English Speaking. Sometimes it is necessary to think beyond the box, adding creative elements wherever possible depending of course, on the skills of your students and how open they are to creative thinking.
A teacher can use this activity to draw the students’ attention to the different categories that make up an adjective. Depending on what your primary and target languages are, it’s quite likely that there are a lot of sounds your mouth just isn’t used to producing.
If they take a class, they spend 20% of their time repeating words, and 80% of the time reading the textbook, doing homework or just listening to a teacher. Shadowing can be done, for example, when watching TV shows or movies or listening to music. We will publish your contents in our various Social Media's Platforms to expose your words. So, if you spend most of your time reading instead of speaking, you might get better at reading but your speaking skills never grow. Reading aloud helps to train the muscles of your mouth and diaphragm to produce unfamiliar words and sounds. If they have command on one language; then they can surely achieve command on another language.
Many of my friends joined English speaking classes but still they feel it difficult to speak English with fluency.

Rich vocabulary is also not a correct answer because I never used a Hindi grammar as well in order to speak Hindi. If we know how to make simple sentences using common words, it is enough to start speaking in English. What are the main difficulties which stops us to speak in English? Learning 10000 new words will not help you as much as practicing 500 common words of conversation in English, so one has to become very good at it. I tried it many time but I initiated in English and ended with Hindi but it gained me lot of confidence in speaking English with others too slowly slowly.Now some better practical solutions.
Read English news paper and books loudly, listen and record English news, interviews on TV, radio and try to repeat them in same way.
Also have a good dictionary and grammar like Oxford to enrich your knowledge and confidence. Attend some Group discussions and personal interviews in English held in your area by any institute or company. You may have fear in the beginning but remember “There is victory beyond the fear” I do practice with my nephew and niece who go to an English medium school and who are less than ten years old.
Computer and cable TV has made them more advanced.You can’t learn swimming without landing in water, so just start speaking, no matters correct or incorrect. There are more than a million words in English language, but you need only few thousand words to speak it. On the other hand, never think that knowledge of grammar and rich vocabulary are basic needs to speak English. My grammar knowledge of English was good from school days in spite of being a Hindi medium student. Even it make difficult for me to speak in English.Lastly I would say that never under estimate yourself in the beginning because nobody is perfect. I have met many people who speak incorrect English (from the grammar point of view) but with confidence.
I am not supporting their mistakes but admiring them because at least they had courage to start. Stay in touch with me through Facebook, Twitter or Google+.SubscribeIf you enjoyed this article, subscribe to receive more just like it.
