Here’s another video where you can watch me speaking in English with myself while commuting to work, and this time around I’m trying a different approach to kick-start my English fluency: speaking as fast as possible.
It’s one of the different English fluency management strategies, and I know I have to resort to this one because my fluency started dwindling yesterday afternoon.
The day before was perfect, my fluency peaked at a two week high, but as it sometimes happens – a peak is followed by a drop 😡 , so I have to figure out a way of reverting back to my normal state of fluency.
This is how I manage my fluency, and there are a lot of different strategies:
- slowing your speech down
- speaking with an accent (or rather allowing your native accent to come to fore)
- speaking using short sentences
- spitting out the first thing that crosses your mind instead of composing sentences in your head
All these strategies have been tried and tested over the years, and it’s all a result of my own pursuit after English fluency.
Whether I’ve achieved it or not – well, I’ll let you be the judge of that, but I really like to think that I am a fluent English speaker because I feel 100% comfortable when speaking with myself or others!
Of course, I can’t speak the same way I’d write – but then it’s absolutely natural, my friends ❗
Spoken English is a whole new ballgame for those of us who’ve been spending years studying textbooks and reading, so here’s my advice for those of you who still do that – DO SOME SPOKEN ENGLSIH PRACTICE and you’ll definitely notice your fluency come along big time!
