The 3-Step Method to Practice Speaking English


Whether you’re practicing alone or with a partner, the goal of tight practice is repetition of phrases and short sentences. By repeating target words or grammar structures in various ways, you can improve your English fluency and build your confidence.

Example with New Vocabulary: Clothes

New Words: Tie, short-sleeved shirt, trousers.

For beginners, just focus on repeating a new word with collocations and building small phrases.

  • A tie
  • Wear a tie
  • I am wearing a tie
  • I like wearing a tie
  • I don’t like wearing a tie

For more advanced learners, make a sentence then try the following 

Add a word or two (e.g. adjectives to adverbs)

  • I don’t like wearing a tie
  • I don’t like wearing a pink tie
  • I usually don’t like wearing a pink tie
  • I usually don’t like wearing a pink tie for work 

Change a word or two

  • I don’t like wearing ties
  • I don’t like buying ties
  • My brother doesn’t like buying ties

Change the tense 

  • My brother doesn’t like buying ties
  • My brother didn’t like buying ties
  • My brother has never liked buying ties

We can also use this approach to practice new grammar.

Grammar Focus: Present Perfect

  • I have never worn a pink tie
  • I have never worn pink trousers 
  • I have never worn pink shoes
