2018-11-25T18:12:51+00:00By |Pronunciation|

Mispronouncing a word is one of the fastest ways to leave poor impression of your communication skills, especially when those listening to you are good at it. Even 1-2 pronunciation slipups in a 10-minute conversation are enough.

‘Despite years of trying, I’m not able to speak fluently in English.’

‘I can read and listen almost anything, but I’m average at speaking.’

‘I often get stuck while speaking, because the right words elude me.’

‘I first think in my native language, then translate into English, and then speak.’

These, and other, thoughts may have crossed your mind while working on your English speaking skills.

In this post, I’ll cover how you can address these and other challenges that may be coming in your way to become better at spoken English.

I’m convinced about these methods because I’ve seen them work for teens from underprivileged backgrounds who built their spoken English almost from scratch (some of my observations are covered in the post).

That’s the first thing that comes to our mind. Whether you like it or not, English is the de facto language of business in many countries and for cross-border communication, and interviews for most meaningful jobs are conducted in English.

And its importance is only going to increase in future (point # 3 further down in the post).

I don’t need to convince you on importance of speaking fluent English for professional success. You would have observed this around you and probably experienced too.

How to Minimize Silly Mistakes in Exams?

Have you ever missed a zero, or added instead of subtracting, or put the decimal in the wrong place in math paper?

Have you ever failed to answer a question fully because you missed one of its sub-questions?

Have you ever misread a question and, as a result, answered it in a tangential direction?

These are all silly mistakes, and they’re big sins because you lose those marks which were 99 percent yours.

You Can Achieve Much More in 3 Years Than You Think

What if someone told you that you can attain high level of proficiency (a level you admire, and aspire to achieve) in android development or writing or public speaking or a sport or any pursuit in 2-3 years. You’ll likely not believe.
