- Hello everyone and welcome back
to English With Lucy.
Today I'm going to give you 10 tips
for practising your speaking and hopefully
they will make you improve
in a very short amount of time.
Also, in case you didn't already know,
I've started a second channel.
This is a personal channel called Lucy Bell Earl.
I've linked it down below.
On this channel I'm sharing personal things,
things that you request like hair,
beauty, Q and A's,
videos with Will,
Vlogs, anything really.
So make sure you check it out
and if you like it then you can follow it.
Right, let's get started with the lesson.
Number one is practise tongue twisters.
Now, tongue twisters are really fun anyway
but they are an amazing way
of practising individual sounds, individual phonemes.
There are lots of phonemes that are really hard
for people from specific countries
or that speak specific languages.
The only way that you can train your tongue
to make these sounds is to practise the sounds
over and over again, repetitively.
Tongue twisters are your best friend.
So for example,
if you're struggling between the difference
with eh and E,
which I know a lot of people struggle with,
especially speakers of Spanish
because you only have the E sound,
you don't have the short eh sound.
Well, if that's the case for you,
you could practise this one.
I slit a sheet.
A sheet I slit.
Upon a slitted sheet I sit.
Be careful, it might make you swear.
(laughing)
I have left a link in the description box
to loads more tongue twisters.
But really, all you have to do is search
on Google, tongue twisters for practising English.
If you would like me to make a video
on some of the most difficult tongue twisters,
a video that you can practise along with
let me know in the comments down below.
I'll definitely do that because I love tongue twisters
and I think they're amazing
for practising pronunciation.
Number 2 is lessons with natives.
And this section of the video is sponsored
by Lingoda and the Lingoda Language Marathon.
This section could be really,
really important for you if you were
to practise your speaking every single day.
So Lingoda is an online language academy
where you can learn English,
French, German,
Spanish and Business English at any level
and they run a very special event called
the Lingoda Language Marathon.
So what is it?
Well, you study every day unless you take
the half marathon where you study slightly less.
And if you complete the marathon you get
a 100% refund on your classes
or a 50% refund if you do the half marathon.
This marathon starts on the 27th of May
and finishes on the 24th of August.
You have to participate in an agreed amount
of classes each month in order to succeed.
That's 30 classes a month for the full marathon
and 15 classes a month for the half marathon.
You can take only one class per day, every day.
So how do you participate?
Well, you sign up for the marathon
before the 13th of May.
After paying the entry fee that secures your spot
in the marathon you automatically sign up
to a three month subscription.
I however, have a special discount for you
and you don't have to pay that entry fee.
All you have to do is click on the link
in the description box and use this code
when you sign up for a 100% discount
on your entry fee.
To get the refund you'll need to show up
on time for the classes that you book
and actively participate.
If you book a class and miss it
or fail to book a class at all
you can still finish the marathon
but you won't qualify for the refund.
Remember that places in the marathon are limited
so you need to reserve your spot now
to avoid disappointment.
Also make sure that you check the terms
and conditions and familiarise yourself
with the rules.
Previous marathon graduates have said
that this is the key to getting the refund.
The Lingoda Language Marathon
is an incredible opportunity to take your language
to the next level fast.
Alternatively, if you don't think that the marathon
is for you you can check out Lingoda
and all of their flexible subscription packages
and book a private trial class for free.
If you do fancy the marathon click on the link
in the description box and use my code.
Right, now let's discuss tip number three.
Tip number three is sing along to English songs.
Now, this tip is especially useful
if you want to practise an American accent.
The reason for this is that many British singers
actually sing with a slight American accent.
So sometimes songs sung by British singers
aren't actually a true representation
of their own accent.
If you listen to,
I don't know,
One Direction or a British boy band
they'll often sing with an American accent.
Even Ed Sheeran does it sometimes.
Someone who does sing
with a very strong British accent is Lily Allen.
She does not go into the American territory at all.
So she's a good one to listen to
and sing along with if you want
to practise speaking or singing in this case.
Music can be a really,
really great way of practising every single day
because it's so enjoyable.
It doesn't feel like it's a chore when you do it.
It's a great way to learn lots of slang,
lots of colloquial language as well.
It's also a really good idea to look up
the meaning of song lyrics.
That way you can really find out
if they've used bad grammar,
because sometimes they do to make
it fit in with the rhyming,
if they've used idioms or slang
and it's just really nice to know
what you're singing about?
But singing along with English songs
is a fantastic way of practising your speaking
and it will help you become more fluent.
Tip number four could be slightly controversial
but I think it's a really good tip
and I always used to tell my students
to do it in London.
So lots of students struggle to meet
and find native speakers to practise with.
They often also have a hard time actually talking
to natives 'cause they're so nervous
or they take a little bit longer
to understand what they say.
I would say that a great step to precede talking
with natives is eavesdropping on natives.
To eavesdrop means to listen in
on someone else's conversation.
So if you're in an English speaking country
or you know there's a specific bar
or restaurant where English speakers tend to go,
maybe try going there with the intention
of just overhearing other people's conversations.
If they say something you don't understand,
search it on your phone.
Just drink in the atmosphere and you'll just take
in a lot of vocabulary
you wouldn't normally come across.
And there's no pressure on you,
well, the only pressure is that you don't get caught
'cause you could look a little bit weird
but you're not doing any harm.
Some people in England like to call it people watching
and it's a really popular pastime.
You just sit in a cafe,
normally at the window and watch the world go by.
I like to call this people listening
where you just sit in a cafe and listen
to what other people are saying
and familiarise yourself with English conversations.
Let me know if you've ever done this
and let me know if you've ever got caught?
Number five is,
this is a really good tip.
This tip will really,
really help you if you're nervous
about speaking English with natives
or non natives.
Practise conversations through WhatsApp audio notes.
On WhatsApp and on most messaging services
there is a function where you can record your voice
and send it.
I encourage my students to talk amongst themselves
and to talk with natives through this feature.
It's so much more convenient than a phone call
and there's much less pressure than in a phone call.
And whatever they send you,
you can replay it as many times as you want.
You can replay what they've said
and practise it yourself.
You can listen back to your own voice notes
and see where you went wrong?
If you record one and you make a mistake
delete it and record it again.
Keep recording it until you're happy
with how it sounds.
When you've finished the conversation
you have a lovely database of everything you've said
in English and everything someone has said
in English to you and you can use that to study.
WhatsApp voice notes and other voice note services
are such a great way of practising your speaking
without actually chatting in the moment.
You can do it around your studies,
around your work.
It's much more convenient than a phone call.
Tip number six can actually relate
back to tip number five,
it's practise debating.
Now, I don't tend to argue a lot
but when I do argue with someone
I always think back about the argument
at a later date and think,
God, I could've said that so much better,
I could've made this point,
blah, blah, blah.
You will never be good at arguing and debating
if you don't practise it,
apart from those few people who seem to be naturals.
I suggest participating in or creating a debate club.
Now, you could do this over Skype
or you could do it over WhatsApp.
WhatsApp would be my preference.
Every day you can choose a new topic
to discuss and debate and make sure it's done
in an orderly fashion
so everyone can say their opinion.
Maybe make a voice note limit of 30 seconds
or 15 seconds or a minute if it's a really big topic.
Maybe you could create a Facebook group for it.
Maybe you could create a WhatsApp group
amongst your friends.
You could also meet people online
but just remember to be very,
very careful and keep everything private
and don't let anyone know where you live.
But consider creating a WhatsApp debate group
and debating through WhatsApp voice notes.
It's a really, really great way
of practising your speaking
and your conversation skills.
Tip number seven is keep an idioms and slang diary.
This could be in the notes app on your phone
or this could be an actual written notebook.
Every time you come across a new slang word
or a new idiom write it down at the very least,
and it's also best to write down the meaning as well.
I remember in Sapin I would hear so many slang words,
so many idiomatic phrases
and I would always forget them all.
When I started noting them down
that's when I started remembering them.
I'd be in a conversation and I'd want to use
that sort of idiom but I couldn't remember
how to say it.
Well, I just whipped out my phone,
looked at my list and it was there.
You can't expect yourself to just remember
loads and loads of idioms,
you have to use them.
So don't be ashamed of taking out your list
and using it in the moment.
Tip number eight,
this is so fun and it's something I do a lot.
Host your own cooking show every single night.
I bet so many of you have done this before
but it's a really,
really great way of practising a language.
Every time you cook or every time you make something
or you're cleaning,
pretend you're hosting a show.
Talk about what you're doing.
It's a fantastic opportunity to practise English
and practise speaking without having someone else
to speak with.
It's a really great way
of practising the present continuous as well.
I am boiling the water.
I am adding the rice.
Maybe go a bit more advanced
and say I'm just adding a pinch of this
because it adds an element of flavour,
honestly, go all out.
You could even record yourself.
Maybe that's too far for some people
but this is just about using every opportunity
you have to speak English.
Tip number nine is remember
to prioritise fluency over accuracy.
If you're fluent in a language
it doesn't mean you're absolutely perfect
at that language.
It means that you can speak it
without thinking, without stopping.
For most people,
aiming for 100% accuracy,
perfection in a language is just
an unattainable goal.
I don't speak English perfectly.
I make mistakes all the time.
I said growed in another video, so embarrassing.
Comment down below if you know which video
that is because it was recent.
Don't beat yourself up over making mistakes.
Remain positive, learn from your mistakes,
laugh at your mistakes
and celebrate speaking English fluently
and speaking English without thinking
over speaking English without making any mistakes.
Tip number 10 is read a book completely aloud.
Lots of people like to read books at home,
it's their relaxation time.
But if you're at home and if you read alone,
take the opportunity to read aloud.
It's a great way to practise your pronunciation,
to practise your speaking,
maybe record yourself as well.
If a book is too long or you feel like
it takes away from your relaxation time
then try reading aloud one article every day
or something from a newspaper.
If you do it on a daily basis you'll come
across loads of new words and phrases
and you'll also practise saying them
and they will stick in your mind for future use.
Right, that's it for today's lesson.
I hope you enjoyed it
and I hope you learnt something.

that you can think of.
