Learning a foreign language is one of the important requirements of our age. But learning is no longer an issue; Being able to speak the learned foreign language is at the forefront. It would not be very accurate to say that we know a language that we do not speak fluently. Fluency means speaking and writing easily. Being able to speak or write a language comfortably.
Fluency is big business in speaking. It is necessary to be intelligible and at the same time to understand 99% of what is spoken. When most of us talk about our problems in a language, we think that we know that language perfectly. But being able to ask for a coffee in a cafe in France does not make us fluent in that French. The easier we can express any emotion or thought in that language, the more fluently we speak.
So how do we gain fluency in a foreign language?
1) The main strategy in all practical teachings is practice.
If you want to speak a language fluently, you should use it often. Talking is not a complex or insurmountable issue. Try to integrate the language you will learn into your daily life. You don’t have to speak to a stranger in the beginning, just say the words out loud first, then a few frequently used phrases to speak correctly. Over time, your reservoir will expand.
2) You don’t always need a second person to talk to.
Talking to yourself is the best way to lay the groundwork and prepare for a real conversation! Repeat in that language what you would do while performing your daily activities. This way, you can adapt to everyday conversation more easily. When you learn daily speech patterns, you can maintain communication more easily. This will increase your self-confidence. You will be encouraged and motivated to communicate more.
3) Regularity in work is a must!
The key to acquiring a skill is persistence. Spend at least 30 minutes a day talking. The more repetitions you do, the more fluent your fluency will increase in direct proportion. Get yourself talking buddies. Talking with friends of similar level helps you progress. As you talk regularly, your conversations will start to feel more natural. You will also make a lot of friends.
4) Change the methods.
Change where you work, how long and how you learn. Adopt the principle of working by taking a break. You will start worse each time you return to work after the breaks. This is so normal. Thanks to intermittent study, you will forget what you have learned and learn again in a short time. Thus, you will increase the permanence of what you have learned. In addition, when you change the place where you work, you will disrupt the coding you have made in your brain and you will speak more comfortably in different places and conditions.
5) Jump headlong into a big adventure!
You can make a great effort, you can start speaking fluently, but unless you live among those who speak the language, your learning will always be limited. To be truly fluent, you must live in a life where you can speak that language at any time. You will begin to learn without noticing.
