And you should also bear in mind that by practicing spoken English as often as you can you’ll facilitate your ability to think in English and you’ll add more words and phrases to your active English vocabulary!
You know, it’s one of the biggest issues that foreign English speakers face worldwide – they can’t help thinking in their native language and translating into English.
Also the size of your active English vocabulary plays a crucial role in maintaining fluent English speech when you communicate with other English speakers.
Active vocabulary consists of all those words and phrases you can use when speaking as opposed to English vocabulary you only recognize but you can’t really use in real-life conversations.
🙂 You definitely have situations when you are on your own and you’re actively thinking about something – your future plans, events from the past, and so on.
So why not turn that thinking in your native language into a purposeful English speaking practice session? Are you ready to get on the fast track to spoken English fluency? For those foreign English speakers whose English understanding, writing and grammar is already good but they're struggling with spoken English!
It’s easy, it’ll cost you nothing, and it’s a brilliant way of improving your English fluency and also preparing for important events like interviews and appointments! Imprints natural English speech patterns in your mind - revolutionary speech exercising technology!
But if you think it’s not really necessary to engage in weird activities like thinking out loud in English because you get to speak some English with your English speaking supervisor and you also watch some English TV channels in the evening – I’d say you should think twice.
Besides, those few sentences you swap with your supervisor count for virtually nothing considering that an average person speaks at least a couple of thousand words a day.
