Hey guys,

    I know that this week most students have already started a new semester of school and will soon start their English classes as well. I really want to take this opportunity to encourage you with three really profound techniques in learning English that will help improve your speaking skills if you stick to them.

我知道你们大多数人这两天已经开学了,并且很快开始上英语课。我今天主要想和大家分享三个很赞的口语技巧。如果大家能坚持去这样做的话,一定可以提升自己的英语口语水平。



1) Use the words you know !

     使用你熟知的词汇


For most student in English courses, I know that inside the class the teacher wants students to use incredibly ginormous words when writing and speaking English. That when you communicate—bigger words are better. The honest truth about big sophisticated words is that they are mainly used when making a PPT (sometimes), books, essays, or in a meeting. In reality, what you want to do when speaking English is to communicate a meaning you have.

我知道,大家上英语课的时候,在讲到写作和口语部分,英语老师会让你们使用一些非常高逼格的词汇。因为他们觉得交流的时候,词汇看起来越高大上越好。但事实上不是这样的。那些复杂词汇一般只用在ppt(有时候)、书籍或者文章里,或者在专门的会议上使用。而在现实中,你交流的主要目的是为了传达你想说的意思。


So my advice to those learning the language is just to use the words you already know! As you get more and more familiar with them, later you can add on more words. Sooner or later your vocabulary will start to increase, and even better, your communication skills.

所以我给大家的建议是大量去使用大家已熟知的词汇。当你对这些词汇开始了然于胸的时候,尝试丰富下自己的常用词汇。在这样一个渐进的过程中,你的词汇量会越来越大,你的表达技能也会因应提高。


E.g.

 1. I like your shirt  我喜欢你的衬衫

 2. I like your shoes 我喜欢的你的鞋子

 3. I like your style  我喜欢你的风格

 

2) Use words and phrases you normally say.

      使用你平常爱说的单词和短语


I think this technique is extremely helpful because so often we forget the words or phrases that we learned in class. The reason why is because we never really use them in our daily life. If you like to say the word “awesome” all the time in Chinese, find the word in English and just use it in your daily life. This will really help you remember the word.

这个技巧很有用,因为我们可能很容易忘记在课堂上学到的单词和短语。原因是这些单词和短语,太少被使用了。如果你在中文里总是喜欢说“太棒了!”,那去找下它的英文对应的表达,并且尝试用于你的日常生活中。用多了,你就会记住这个单词。


E.g. You look so handsome today.

        你今天看起来好帅.

    

3) Copy a native speakers sound or voice.

     模仿一个以英语为母语的人的发音


I highly encourage that most students do copy the way a native speaker speaks. This will change your pronunciation from good to great. It will also help those who find it very difficult to get rid of their accent. This is difficult because you don’t just follow how they say the word, but you also want to look at if they are sad or happy when saying the word. Also take notice if they say it quietly or loudly and if they open their mouth a little bit or a lot.

我强烈鼓励大家去模范以英语为母语的外国人的发音和发音方式。这会让你的发音得到很大的改善,乃至优秀。这也是一种摆脱口音困扰的好方法(Echo亲测有用)。这种技巧在操作层面比较困难,因为你不但得学习他们是如何说这个单词的,而且你还要注意他们说这个单词的时候,他们的表情是开心还是难过。同时,还得注意他们说得是大声还是小声,嘴巴张开的幅度是小还是大。


E.g.  What are you doing today?

         你今天在做什么?

    

If you practice these, and stick to them, I guarantee that your English speaking ability will become more standard.

如果大家刻意去练习我以上说的内容的话,我敢保证你们的英语口语一定会越来越流利。


That’s all for now.

 I’ll see you next week!
