WHY IS CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH SO HARD TO SPEAK?

You must have been learning English probably for a very long time, but it seems difficult to have conversational English, right? You are tired of using the daily strategies and not reaching up your goal.  You already prepare your mind with what you want to say and how you will say it, but those words just don’t come out from your mouth easily, right? Let us know why is it so difficult to have conversational English every day. Remember that the English language consists of two terms; input and output. 

Input is everything that you absorb into you, like reading and listening; something that helps you to develop your skills. Output is everything that you give back in terms of writing and speaking. Output is more difficult than input. Most of the time, what we face while speaking to someone is known as a ‘Mental block’ and this is something that slows down your conversation and makes you hesitant. Even the simplest sentence becomes difficult to say when you have a mental block. 

Make sure that your give enough time and dedication to reading books and novels or any other learning material that would help you in developing your speaking skills and would also make your conversations sounder and clearer. In order to make your English much easier for you, you will have to get to know the slang terms, the idioms along with accents, and much more.

In order to be good at speaking conversational English, speak as much as you can. Don’t hold back just because you are hesitant or you think that something may go wrong. It might happen because you don’t feel confident enough in your speaking ability. Or is it that you spend most of your time in your classroom or in reading, writing, or listening. Getting a lot of English-speaking practice can be an obstacle when you don’t have a good conversation partner or someone who lives in an English-speaking country. 

If you want to be good at conversational English, remember that when you are in a conversational group of people, their conversations may seem fun. Since you are familiar with those words, you understand what they speak and chances are that you may even want to participate in it. But, just before speaking, you might become nervous or a little sweaty, thinking that what if you speak something wrong. What you are facing is very common and understandable. 

One best thing you could do to improve your conversational skills is by talking to yourself when you are home alone or you could even have a chat with yourself in front of a mirror. This might help you in building confidence and you won’t even be hesitant while speaking with yourself. You can even make out the errors you make while conversing with yourself and you can rectify them later. You can even converse in English with your family at dinner or gatherings or even with your friends in groups or online groups. You can begin by talking about your day and what was the most exciting part about it.

Once you get the hang of it, you might find it interesting and exciting to speak in English. Take notes of the words and phrases that you could have spoken but couldn’t. Try to jot them down and you can speak it in the next time.

Just try to have fun while conversing in English with the people you trust and you will see that your speaking ability improves immensely without even realizing it. Try that you don’t go very harsh on yourself because learning things take time and dedication is the essence to achieve goals, even if they are small. Try to practice speaking English every day and it will definitely help you.
