Have you been studying English for months but still aren't confident speaking

It can be really difficult to have a full conversation in English, especially with a native speaker. Here are a few tips that can help you practice conversation and gain confidence when speaking!

Practice Speaking with a Friend
Practicing with a friend is one of the best ways to improve your English. They can correct you if you make a mistake, and you can help them improve their English too. It's really important that you don't use anything other than English when practicing. If you use a different language when practicing English, your progress will be a lot slower!

Record Yourself Speaking
A lot of language learners say they have trouble talking because they get nervous and forget everything they've learned! If this happens to you, don't feel bad. Being nervous is natural, and forgetting something important happens to everyone! People also get nervous when they're on camera. Recording yourself speaking English can give you practice speaking even when you're nervous. It might feel weird and awkward, but that's how you know it's working!

Join a Conversation Class
Do you have time to practice, but never know what to practice? Then maybe a conversation workshop is the best option for you. A conversation class like Conversation Alive will connect you with other English language learners and give you topics to practice with. There's also a certified English teacher present to help you with any questions you have and correct mistakes.

However you choose to practice, never give up! Together, we will reach our goals!
