Think about it.
When you speak in your own mother tongue, you don't worry about making mistakes.
If you can't think of a word, you think of another.
You stop speaking for a moment and then start again.
No one cares - least of all you!
So why not do the same in English?
The important thing is to prepare yourself. Anticipate what's going to happen before it does.
Are you going to make a phonecall?
Just as you would do in your own mother tongue!
You can't get away from it.
Practice makes perfect.
But we're not looking for perfection here - we're looking for communication!
Every week, as often as you like or as much as you can, we can video chat our way to a better spoken English. You already know quite a bit:
But what about when you need to react to what they say?
What about when they're standing there, waiting for you to reply?
What about when you're lost for words - even after two or three years of learning English?
Don't worry! It's not you. It's your preparation.
You simply don't have enough practice in "speaking spontaneously".
But listen to this: you can practise spontaneity. All you need is some video chat to bring your spontaneity up to the level of the rest of your knowledge.
You don't need more knowledge. You need practice in skills.
It's not always what you know that helps you out in languages. Often, it's how you use it that really makes the difference.
Once you've prepared yourself and practised what you want to do, you'll be able to produce great English without even having to think about it!
That, after all, is what you've learnt to do with your own mother tongue.
Trust me. It'll happen for you too.
Do you like the sound of being able to do all the above? Do you like the sound of better spoken English?
