English Speaking

English Speaking
English Speaking for learners, to help you learn and practise the skill of speaking English. Speaking is the 2nd of the four language skills:1 Listening, 2 Speaking, 3 Reading, 4 Writing
Speaking - language  
When we learn  a language, there are four skills that we need for complete communication. When we learn our native language, we usually learn to listen first, then to speak, then to read, and finally to write. These are called  the  four "language skills":
As you can see, speaking is the second language skill, and probably the one that most language learners wish to perfect as soon as possible.
The four language skills are related to each other in two ways:
• The direction of communication (in or out)
• The method of communication (spoken or written) 
Input is sometimes called "reception" and output is sometimes called "production". Spoken is also known as "oral".

Importance of Speaking Practice
Speaking to yourself can be  "dangerous" because men in white coats may come and take you away!! That is why you should make every effort possible to find somebody to speak with.
There are 4 key skills when you learn a language:
1.    Listening
2.    Speaking
3.    Reading
4.    Writing 
Which one of these is the "Odd-One-Out"? Which one of these is different from the other three? The answer is speaking. The other three you can do alone, on your own, without anyone else. You  can listen to the radio alone. You can read a book alone. You can write a letter alone. But you can't really speak alone! . Where can you find people who can speak English with you? And how can you practise speaking when you are alone?
At School
If you go to a language school, you should use the opportunity to speak to your teachers and other students. When you go home, you can still practise listening, reading and writing, but you probably can't practise speaking. If your teacher asks you a question, take the opportunity to answer. Try to say as much as possible. If your teacher asks you to speakin pair or groups with other students, try to say as much as possible. Don't worry about your mistakes. Just speak!
Conversation Clubs
Many cities around the world have conversation clubs where people can exchange one language for another. Look in your local newspaper to find a conversation club near you. They are usually free although some may charge a small entrance fee.
If you are living in a English-speaking country, you have wonderful opportunity. Practise speaking to the local people such as shop assistants or taxi drivers. Even if you dont' want to buy anything, you can ask questions about products that interest you in a shop. "How much does this cost?" "Can I pay by cheque?" "Which do you recommend?" Often you can start a real conversation - and it costs you nothing!

Songs and Video
Listen to the words of an English-language song that you like. Then repeat them to youeself and try to sing with the music. Repeat the world as many times as possible until they become automatic. Soon you'll be singing the whole song. Or listen to one of your favourite actors on video and repeat one or two sentences that you like. Do it until it becomes automatic. It's good practice for your memory and for the mouth muscles that you need for English.
Above all, don't be afraid to speak. You must try to speak, even if you make mistakes. You cannot learn without mistakes. There is a saying: "The person who never made a mistake never made anything." So think of your mistake as something positive and useful.
Speak as much as possible! Make as many mistakes as possible! When you know that you have made a mistake, you know that you have made progress.



Put into practice until you can speak without thinking about each word
You read each section once and listen to the lesson once, you will probably finish in 10-15 minutes. But you will  not be learning anything. Take the time to make each sentence a part of you. You should be able to say each sentence without thinking about it. Use the Interactive Conversation Practice session over and over again until you can be fluent for that category . Don't be discouraged if a lesson takes you a long time. 

Put in your time and effort
Don't believe book titles that you can say you can learn English in 3 months. That is a lie and only the smartest of all genius's will be able to accomplish that. More realistically, it will take quite a long time. Depending on how much time and effort you put into it , you can finish this whole site and learn how to speak English in one year. Even if it takes two years,it is a great accomplishment seeing how many users study English for 10 years without being able to speak English. 
Extra English study Guidance
Evaluation on a regular basis
It is normal to forget things that you do not use. Even after mastering a lesson, you should re-do the Interactive Conversation portion of that lesson on a regular basis so you don't forget it. After awhile, when those sentences are engraved in your head, you will be speaking English fluently.

The history of the English language really started with the arrival of three Germanic tribes who invaded Britain during the 5th century AD. These tribes, the Angles, the Saxons and the Jutes, crossed the North Sea from what today is Denmark and northern Germany. At that time the inhabitants of Britain spoke a Celtic language. But most of the Celtic speakers were pushed west and north by the invaders—mainly into what is now Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The Angles came from England and their language was called Englisc—from which the words England and English are derived.

OLD ENGLISH (450 AD -1100 AD)

The invading Germanic tribes spoke similar languages, which in Britain developed into what we now call Old English. Old English did not sound or look like English today. Native English speakers now would have great difficulty understanding Old English. Nevertheless, about half of the most commonly used words in Modern English have Old English roots. The words be, strong and water, for example, derive from Old English. Old English was spoken until around 1100.

In 1066 William the Conqueror, the Duke of Normandy (part of modern France), invaded and conquered England. The new conquerors (called the Normans) brought with them a kind of French, which became the language of the Royal Court, and the ruling and business classes. For a period there was a kind of linguistic class division, where the lower classes spoke English and the upper classes spoke French. In the 14th century English became dominant in Britain again, but with many French words added. This language is called Middle English. It was the language of the great poet Chaucer (c1340-1400), but it would still be difficult for native English speakers to understand today.
What is English


Early Modern English (1500 AD -1800 AD)

Towards the end of Middle English, a sudden and distinct change in pronunciation (the Great Vowel Shift) started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with many peoples from around the world. This, and the Renaissance of Classical learning, meant that many new words and phrases entered the language. The invention of printing also meant that there was now a common language in print. Books became cheaper and more people learned to read. Printing also brought standardization to English. Spelling and grammar became fixed, and the dialect of London, where most publishing houses were, became the standard. In 1604 the first English dictionary was published.

Late Modern English (1800-Present)

The main difference between Early Modern English and Late Modern English is vocabulary. Late Modern English has many more words, arising from two principal factors: firstly, the Industrial Revolution and technology created a need for new words; secondly, the British Empire at its height covered one quarter of the earth's surface, and the English language adopted foreign words from many countries.
