Nowadays, English is becoming a demand in the world as millions of people are learning that language for the sake of their own pleasure or jobs at the same time.
Besides that, many people believe that English is way easier to learn compared to other languages which require a great desire and patience as well. However, it does not mean English is the easiest one because there are a number of aspects that almost everybody found difficult or confusing.
One of them is pronouncing the words in the correct way and using these words coherently. In some words, that can be the reason why some English learners give up in the middle of their education. In other words, they may become discouraged about not accomplishing their language skills and then hesitation will emerge which effects their language performance out of not being satisfied with their work. Nevertheless, no one said it is impossible to master any language as good as native one. It may require a little more desire and time which can, actually, guarantee the best result, for sure.
People often say that, the problem with the language barriers between native and foreign ones can be the main reason why some individuals do not want to get further classes in this field. Because, as we all know, every single language has its own sentence structure, the way of using them and the use of grammar which cannot be always similar to the other language’s one. Plus, it can be confusing to know how to use them in a different way right after switching from one language to another one. However, English does not have that complex sentence structure like in Japanese or Arabic which makes the process slower.
One can attend grammar courses for at least 6 months to build a good base for English, but, it sometimes depends on the intelligence and the will that tempt to do the best of the learners in order to get a better result. Another problem, which can be heard among people who learn English as a second language is pronouncing the words correctly and saying them without any hesitation. It is true that some may feel weird or even shy to convey their thoughts verbally because of the hesitation they have.
Most of them are afraid of being embarrassed by mispronouncing some words or minor mistakes which may occur while speaking. However, it is normal to make mistakes or mispronouncing some words. Because, how many times people fail to say something correctly, so much they will work on that mistake and master it in a short period of time, as a result, there will be the least possibility of repeating them, even by chance.
If someone wants to be fluent, they should think less about the complex grammar structures or fancy words which are often used to amaze the partner. Of course, that does not mean neglecting grammar rules or not paying attention to them completely, it means using the structures which you are really sure about and using simple grammar in a good way. That will help to save time and makes our speech understandable. Forcing yourself to act like a “scholar” in this field, may never help.
There are a number of ways to speak fluently in English.
One of them is making friends from abroad who speak English as a first language. It is, of course possible, thanks to developing technology. One can find a wide range of language apps that provide an opportunity to strike up a conversation with foreigners. By this, people may get more confident about their language performances and exchange some new ideas with their distant friends.
It may come in handy to gather some ideas when it comes to language-speaking exams, as well. The other way which helps to surpass the hesitation is by talking to oneself. If there is no one to talk to In English or the feeling of shyness does not let to speak someone, that can be the best way to practice. It can be done by talking in, tie the front of the mirror, or practicing English on your way somewhere.
Shadowing the speech of English speakers, which considered to be the best way to increase fluency in English among language learners.
To sum up, no matter how many ways we have to master a particular language, the only things one should have are strong desire, patience, time, and will, if we really want to get a better result.
