BRITISH vs AMERICAN ENGLISH


Whenever I try to communicate with people I have a hard time framing sentences. I feel like I have lost my speaking skills. How do I get them back?


I believe I've been in the same situation; not once, but multiple times. It's kind of like the writer's block where you struggle with forming correct sentences. This is usually a phase and I've successfully overcome it. Multiple times.
In my case, more than one factor from the list below was responsible for this :
  1. Stress; or any other thing which hampers speech, occupies your mind, so you are not wholeheartedly in the conversation. Sometimes fretting over something so petty like -"What was written on the piece of paper I just walked over?" can cause this.
  2. Excitement; or when you are rushing into doing/saying something. Basically unless you have been in similar situation before or have strategically role played the scenario in your mind before; you end up saying gibberish. Or at times, you have multiple canned responses/cliches rushing to your mind, but you do not want to speak them out and are looking for something better or elegant.
  3. Influence of a strong character/person. Many times we are in awe of a person living or from a TV show who ends up influencing our speech patterns and sentence framing. We secretly long to be in the same situation as them and subconsciously try to fit in specific words as response as opposed to normal choice of words.  And it's not just words, sometimes it's the whole persona, body language and all. Personally I've tried being smart-ass like Dr.Cox from Scrubs, or purposely turn up my eyebrow like Barney Stinson and say "Legendary". Another thing that influences me is that I unknowingly try to mimic phrases, tone, and flow of the person I'm talking to, which at times can be awkward. Like saying "OK!" to someone who has a habit of saying OK after every sentence.
How I managed it!
  1. Add pauses, speak slow and do more NVC. This one's the silver bullet. Say your words slowly, and firmly and taking in as many caesuras as you can allow, and  throw in some hand actions, head tilts, eye rolls and tone modulation. You're better than ever! Basically you are allowing your tongue to match pace with your mind and allowing your body to naturally convey the stuff your want to say minus the language constructs.
  2. Give vent to your emotions, stress, influences. My pals are my coffee and book. Most people say stuff to mirror; I like to take up a novel in one hand and a coffee in another, and say out slowly what I really want to say. So I just blurt our my coxism or say out loud - "Witness me!" to my book; and that allows me to have a natural conversation afterwards.
  3. Joke about your problem. We aggravate our problem, when we become conscious about it, in mid-speech. I break that immediately with words like- "Haha! I am saying all bullshit and it's annoying. Let me start again."
 
Talk like a native speaker - GONNA, HAVETA, WANNA
How to understand native speakers' questions in English


Why can't I talk properly? My sentences come out jumbled and sometimes I can't find the right word. I often stutter on simple words. I didn't have this problem when I was younger. Could it be that I have some sort of speech disorder?

I will offer my experience, and you can decide whether or not you relate. Have stuttered all my life….and I mean SEVERE stutter. Was so severe and for so long that I surrendered that it was going to be a cross I would carry through life. It wasn’t until at the age of 29, when I went to an exceptional speech pathologist, did I find hope.
He told me that I don’t really stutter. I clutter, which means I speak VERY fast. During the first session, I was told that it cannot be cured, but it can be controlled. That gave me hope! He gave to me the six rules for good speech. Which are:
1) Think - about what you say before you say it.
2) Breath - talk as you exhale rather than inhale. Try to take one or two breaths during each sentence.
3) Move your mouth - that will prevent slurring
4) Make all sounds - and be sure to emphasize the last sounof each word. ***
5) Use enough voice ***
6) Talk slow - in order for your speech to sound normal to the listener, it must sound abnormal to you.
Too, I learned years ago from Dr. Don Kirkley, who taught public speaking at the Pentagon, the key to effective speaking is hesitation. Pause. No more than six (6) words at a time without a pause. Even less…than six… will work…nicely.
Oh, and a note - it’s not easy. It takes work. You CAN do it. I went to the speech therapist one hour per week for 52 weeks. My last session, he asked me to read a story about George the Rat, and if I may say, I did an excellent job. He then said, Now, I want you to listen to this. He played a recording of a kid trying to read the same story. It was obvious to me that the young man had physical problems. I could not understand what he was saying. At the end I said, My gosh! Who was that?! The therapist’s next words I will remember until the day I die. He said, That was you during your first day of therapy.
My fear of public speaking was for many years more than most could possibly comprehend. Now, it’s a rush. Promise! To make a long story short, by using the rules given to me, I’ve presented workshops/seminars throughout the United States.
Good luck to you and BE PATIENT. This will take work, but you can do it!
There is more that I could share than this space will allow. If you are serious about overcoming your stutter, read the ebookRise Above: Conquering Adversities on Amazon Kindle. It’s also available online in paperback format.
 
Understand FAST English Conversations
US / UK / Aussie English Vocabulary Differences [KoreanBilly’s English]


How can I learn English fluently in a few months?


I’m an English coach, researcher and I speak Japanese a high level (fluently, but importantly for this answer not perfectly in every situation).
There are going to be two parts to my answer ー
A criticism of your question (because you don’t know what fluency actually means and I can’t answer the question without explaining). And my answer, based on that.
First, what actually is fluency?
We never get “fluent” in English, exactly. Rather, we get fluent in topics.
Fluency is simply how efficiently English is being processed in your brain, and if we look at what’s going on there are roughly 5 key elements to fluency:
  1. Encoding (is the language you need in long-term memory).
  2. Organisation (are those bits of encoded language properly organised and connected within the network of the mind).
  3. Motor Skills (do your mouth, face, etc. muscles know how to move properly to produce the language you have encoded and organised).
  4. Activation (how ‘awake’ is your English; this is a little simplistic, but the brain puts stuff it’s not using to sleep to save energy).
  5. Cognitive Load (like your computer, if you have lots of things happening at once, your brain will slow down).
Fluency is the result of all 5 of these elements working smoothly together. And it’s perfectly possible to be fluent in some topics but not others. This is an extreme example, but I had a client who could use English all day at work but struggled to order a coffee in Starbucks.
I speak Japanese at a very high level and am very fluent in most topics I need to speak about. Indeed, probably more fluent than most Japanese people for certain topics such as psycholinguistics (my field of research). But if you asked me to talk about politics? No way. I suck at that in English, too.
It’s also perfectly possible to be fluent in crap, unnatural, mistaken English (crap English said fast is still crap English, after all). And this is a BIG mistake many people make.
So now you know what fluency is, this is the basic “in a nutshell” version of the process I use with my clients:
  • Step 1: Get really, really, REALLY clear about the exact situations you will use English.
  • Step 2: Focus on learning the exact language you’ll need (as well as background knowledge and cultural knowledge).
  • Step 3: Go out and actually use the English you learned in those situations (use English, don’t ‘practise’ English ー you’ll improve MUCH faster).
  • Step 4: Analyze your own performance and repeat Steps 2 to 4.
The key to “in a few months” is clarity and focus.

The more focused you are on specific topics, the faster you’ll learn. It’s not sexy and it’s kinda obvious, but it is something a lot of people miss.


Spoken English for Beginners | How to Speak in English Fluently?

Tips: 2 Hours of English Conversation Practice - Improve Speaking Skills

How can I improve my spoken English?

These are fantastic methods that will definitely help you make huge progress. But you must implement them in your daily life — it is no use practising spoken English only once or twice week and expecting results.
You need to do this every day.
And then you will see great developments.

I am going to show you SIX techniques that you can use. These are:
  • Use whatever English you already know
  • Use a notebook
  • Read English books & articles
  • Practice English collocations
  • Practice shadowing
  • Watch English-language movies
But first a plan…

MAKE A PLAN
The first thing you need to do is make a plan.
Below I am going to show you SIX techniques and methods you can use to make huge improvements in your spoken English. But without a plan, all of these techniques are useless.
My advice is to use Google Calendar. By all means use whatever calendar you wish, but I think Google Calendar is the best calendar app to use.
On the calendar, block time off when you want to practice the SIX methods for spoken English. This all depends on your own schedule and when you want to do certain exercises.
It could look something like this:
Time Block all the times when you want to study and do the SIX exercises for spoken English.
Once this is set on your calendar, you will then know exactly what you have to do each and every day.
You will know exactly how many times you do each exercise each week. Then you can measure your progress.
Please do this — it is very important!

USE WHATEVER ENGLISH YOU ALREADY KNOW
Of course you must know some English already. How would you be able to read this otherwise?
What you need to do is use ALL the English you already know on a daily basis.
If you have English classes at school or in college, then you can use the English you already know with your English teachers and classmates.
When you greet them, you can say:
Good morning, how are you this morning? Are you having a good day?
Do native-English speakers say this every morning? No, they don’t!
But that is not the point — the point is YOU need to open your mouth and speak English every chance you get.
You need to get used to hearing the sound of your own voice using English.
You need to feel comfortable speaking English out loud every day.
You need to speak FULL SENTENCES so often that you don’t even think about what you are saying.
Try this in your English class with your teacher and classmates.
But there are other places you can use whatever English you already know. If you live in a big city, there must be a Starbucks coffee shop. Many of the staff in Starbucks speak English.
This is a great opportunity to practice English!
You can say:
Could I please have a cappuccino and a piece of apple pie? Many thanks!
The more you open your mouth and start speaking in FULL SENTENCES all the English you know, the more your confidence will rocket up to the sky.
Yes, at first you will feel strange and maybe shy to speak out loud, but over time you will feel more confident and assured.

TAKE A NOTEBOOK WITH YOU EVERYWHERE
You need to have a notebook and a pen.
And then whenever you hear some spoken English that you are not sure about, try to write it down. This might be difficult but you have to try.
The same with any time you read something in English — a phrase or a new word — write it all down in your notebook.
The act of writing these words and phrases down will help you remember them. Then you can use them later in your spoken English.
Do not use your smartphone for making notes!
Taking notes on a smartphone is not the same as using a notebook and pen.
The notebook and pen act like a kind of magic. Just the act of writing words and phrases down will help you remember new words and phrases.

READ ENGLISH BOOKS & ARTICLES
You must have a daily habit of reading every day!
Reading is a fantastic way to help you with your spoken English. You will learn new words and phrases plus it will help you remember English grammar.
You can read whatever you want, but you must read.
Read novels, stories, the news, history, websites or comics — no problem. But read something every day.
Take whatever you are reading and read out loud. Go somewhere quiet, like your room or the park, and read out loud from your book or the article you are reading.
Don’t read out quietly!
Read out with a loud voice. This is a really great way to help you with spoken English.
All you have to do is look at the reading material and read it out.
What could be easier?

PRACTICE ENGLISH COLLOCATIONS
English collocations are groups of words that are usually used together as a phrase. They are very common in English.
By learning these, you will make your English sound more fluent, more natural, more like a native speaker.
These are some examples of English collocations:
  • Go on a trip
  • Take a nap
  • Make a suggestion
  • Get permission
  • Do my hair
  • Have lunch
There are English collocations everywhere you look.
Any time you find a new English collocation, write it down in your notebook.
Go over them and learn them. This will help you in your spoken English.
If you want to read more about English collocations, I wrote a guide on how to learn them. You can find it here.

SHADOWING
Shadowing is an excellent technique that was devised by Alexander Argüelles. Alexander can speak FIFTY languages fluently.
FIFTY.
And he learned how to speak all fifty by using the technique of shadowing.
In order to do the shadowing exercise, you will need the following items:
  • A smartphone
  • An English audio recording — maybe a podcast or a news report
  • A transcript of the recording — this is all the words said in the podcast typed out for you to read
  • A pair of earphones
  • A small amount of courage!
Once you have all of these things, then you need to follow these steps:
ONE
Listen to the podcast or news recording. Is it too easy? Too difficult? It has to be something at YOUR level but with just the right amount of challenge for you.
TWO
Listen again and again until you can understand as much of it as you can. You need to be able to understand what the speakers are saying and the context of the podcast or news report.
Yes, there will be words you do not understand — don’t worry about that. As long as you understand most of it, that is enough.
THREE
Listen again, but this time read the transcript to find out all the new and difficult words. Pay close attention to these words. Look them up in a dictionary.
Listen to the sound of these new words.
FOUR
Listen again and — as the speaker is speaking on the podcast — read out the transcript at the same time.
There should be a slight delay between the speaker and your own voice. This is the ‘shadowing’ aspect of this exercise.
Repeat this section a few times until you feel comfortable saying most of the transcript.
FIVE
Now go outside. Take your smartphone and earphones with you.
Go outside and walk around at a quick pace.
Get your energy levels high!
Play the recording on your phone and repeat everything you hear. You should know most of it from practising stage four.
No, you will not get all of it right. You will make mistakes. But don’t worry!
Keep your head up, walk at a quick pace, and look in front of you with confidence.
I can promise you this has a very powerful psychological effect!
SIX
Keep trying. Try to repeat all that you hear. Speak loudly and clearly.
You might feel very shy to do this at first but it will make you feel more confident later.
This exercise can really help you with speaking English!
Keep doing it until you can say all the recording without making any mistakes.
I found these podcasts with transcripts:
(I am not affiliated with any of these podcasts.)

OTHER METHODS TO TRY
There are a few other methods you can try on your own. These can also help you with English speaking.
  • Watching English-language movies
  • Talking to yourself in the mirror
  • Reading out loud
  • Setting up ‘English Only’ groups with your classmates
TO CONCLUDE
The point is, it all comes down to how much work you are prepared to do.
The more you put into it, the more you will get from it.
I always think that studying English is like going to the gym.
If I go to the gym only once a week for three hours, how much benefit am I going to get from it?
What about if I went to the gym every day for 45 minutes?
It is much better to practice English every day for just a short time than to do marathon sessions once a week.
That is why you need to TIME BLOCK all your study sessions. By doing this, you will see HUGE progress.
