Four Steps to Improve Oral English
Everyone has the opportunity and capacity to achieve an ideal IELTS Oral English band score. But the problem is most people do not know how. It could be due to the lack of discipline in studying or the training gained was not efficient. One can come up with dozens of reasons why it is so hard to have an excellent band score. But one lesson students have to learn is either you make a way or you make excuses.
I believe that students can gain their dream. This is my vision. Furthermore, my hope is to see many students accomplish their ambition and become successful in their field after taking IELTS exam by changing their mindsets and perspectives about learning and answering different topics.
Here are four steps on how students can improve their oral English:
Lay more emphasis on practical communicating ability.
Students study spoken English so as to make oral communications, so the sequence of oral English study is very important. It should be followed as: Fluency, Accuracy, and Appropriateness. That is to say, students have to pay more attention to practical communicating ability instead of only laying emphasis on the grammatical correctness.
Consider English as your best friends--by speaking English to ourselves.
If English partners are not easy to get, then students have to create an English environment ourselves by speaking English to ourselves.
This method is very effective and easy to insist on--interpreting Chinese-English novels or books. First students read the Chinese parts and then try to interpret them into English and then compare our interpretation with the original versions in the novels or books so that students can find out the mistakes, shortcomings and progresses in their interpretation
Enhance our oral English by improving our English writing, listening and reading.
Oral English has its own features, but it is closely combined with other aspects of English, for example, writing may make oral English precise and accurate.
Generally speaking, if students want to improve their oral English, they need to practice more frequently from all aspects not only their oral English.
