English learners are more interested in grammar and also practice grammar than listening and speaking skills because you can find a lot of grammar material. However, speaking and listening skills are unwritten. If you do not have the opportunity to practice, these two skills will not be improved. Therefore, Global Learn recommends a daily English speaking and listening practicing method that will allow you to practice English in a simple and effective way.
If you want to learn English, it is necessary to form yourself a habit of using English as often as using Vietnamese. Every day, say every English sentence you can in every context you are encountering. For example, when you open the refrigerator and find only two eggs, say: “There are only 2 eggs left!” From thought to speech statement must be English. Practice speaking English in this way so that you will not be confused when you have to say it in another situation because it has become your reflex. At that time, instead of translating from Vietnamese into English, you can speak in English directly.
Interaction plays an important role in practicing listening and speaking in everyday English. Therefore, finding a supportive and cooperative person will make your English learning much easier. He or she may be your roommate, or your colleague, as well as your brother or sister. When practicing a conversation with a person, you not only practice listening and speaking skills, but also practice reflective ability, answer questions, respond to your partner and improve your vocabulary. Also, when talking to someone else, you will be more interested in speaking English than talking alone.
However, if you only speak English in your way, it can cause a case that other people do not understand what you say, or you do not understand what other people say. So, you should find an English teacher or a friend who are good at English and talk to them regularly so that they can correct your pronunciation and intonation; besides, you can hear how they use idioms and phrases in communication to improve English communication skills.
