actually, i think it is not very difficult to speak english! when i was small, i used to practice English in front of the mirror. It was terrible becuz i couldnt speak anything fluently. but the most important is that you have to be confident when you communicate with anyone. Trying to arrange the things you want to talk first and then speak it out as slowly as possible. Be confident ! okay? even you re wrong in grammar but its not the big problem. Communicating with foreign people to improve your listening and speaking skills. :D good luck !

dont be afraid to make mistakes

if you have a chance to talk with foreign people it is good for you

if not, watching movies with english subtitles and listening music will help you

it is also entertainingWink

if you think that communicate with the others is a harsh task, you may start with reading articles aloud first. As you are reading, you can change your incorrect intonation and pronounciation. If you want to speak like a foreigner, you should watch more english films, so that you can learn their intonation.Remember "practice makes perfect".Good luck!Laughing

learning english is not as difficult as we thought . english is  just a tool ,and we use it to communicate with people from different nations . so oral engliah is a big deal. maybe first time whem we meet a foreign people ,it is diffcult for us to open our mouth to speak english . but keep in your mind ,be self-confident is just the first step you approach to success . good luck!!!Embarassed

The more you speak (even if you are not sure it's right), the better your english will be… I think it's a matter of confidence!

You'd better try to communicate with foreigners, but you can also try to read articles and watch some movies and then make a speech on them. It's gonna help you a lot. Ohh you can sing songs in English as well! :)

Good luck!
