Some tips to speak English naturally and like a native speaker
1. Know where to use stress in words
First of all, you’ll need to know the sounds used in the language that you want to speak more fluently and accurately. Learning to fleck the different sounds in the English language will make it a piece of cake for you to utter them. To naturalize yourself with these sounds, you’ll need to hearken meticulously.
If you don’t know where to use stress in a word and how to pronounce that word then you’ll not be able to communicate with others or convey your message conveniently, because if you don’t pronounce the word in the right way by applying stress forms then the other person never understands what you trying to say.
So try to listen to native English speakers and search for the pronunciation of every word before speaking. we need to apply some strategies as all noun has the first stressed word and every verb has stressed the last words.
2. Put some rhythmical flow in your language
“Rhythm is the life of space-time, danced through” is a pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables in the flow of language. If you have been listening intently, you had have espied that the English language is wholly chanted, tuneful and melodic. Sentences have rhythms and melody, as many songs do. Attune your ear to hear which syllables in a word are stressed and which are de-stressed and also notice what is the rhythmical tone of the word that is spoken and try to mimic that tone.
Rehearse saying the words with the factual stress along with antonyms. From unkinking, it might sound a bit difficult but don’t get in a fluster, it’ll be too easy if you show some engrossment and likeness in it. If you practice enough, you’ll be able to glancingly determine what sounds right, too.
3. Hook Up And Abridge The Words
“Isn’t it weird that everything sounds better in English?”
We usually don’t use every word as it is according to the grammatical terms and it’s natural because sometimes we mold out some words into short forms just to relax and get easy on those words in our casual talks.
When you don’t use contractions, it sounds outlandish and freakish so this is salient to link and shorten the words to sound natural in English. Linking is when we join a word that ends in a seraphic consonant to the following word, if it begins with a vowel and to abridge the words means shortened the actions and words as We don’t say ‘it is a white plate. we link and say “it’s a white plate” that sounds more authentic and your English sounds more natural when you do this. It saves time and it makes you sound more fluent.
So when you want to be following in your English accent training and speech you’ll need to have your jaw movement change to flux palpable words together and practice to form a new clout muscles flashback of how to budge in English.
Natal speakers don’t pronounce every word together because they are natural to their style of speaking and add more fun to their language by linking some words and also by shortening them. So Try to mimic the way natives speak. Practice by standing IN front of the mirror and in front of those who are very close to you because the first thing you need is confidence, so from the starting try in front of those with whom you don’t shy or hesitate to say anything.
Don’t try to say what you read in your textbook because, in textbooks, a word is written not the accent and pronunciation that you want to adopt. Don’t try to fit too much into one sentence as it looks mixed up and hodgepodge which confuses you and blurs your ideas, so the listener doesn’t understand what you want to say. This doesn’t mean you have to keep your writing forthright, blunt, and to the point, but it does mean you should be frugal of how many conjunctions are used within your sentence and how many ideas you are linking together within that sentence that you sound off.
4. Your opinion matter the most
Your opinion matter, especially if it’s supported by certitudes and observations because if you didn’t develop any interest in what you are going to do then you’ll never get what you are trying to learn. Remember that the purpose of language isn’t just about giving information, its purpose should be to describe yourself, your confidence, your abilities, and your grip on grammatical units.
When you speak to someone you’re also using the language to set up gregarious kinships’ to show that you understand them and like their perspectives. Showing ancient is the best part of the conversation and you should be aware of how to deal with or make an agreement for brawny social liaisons, that will be your best if you confidently handle everything.
While speaking to someone you should keep these catechisms in mind. What is our relationship?—-Are they boon companions or co-workers, professors or strangers? What I am discussing with the other person? Is it something confidential or something informal or on habitual base talk?
If the relationship is more formal, you should choose more formal language, that you and the other person communicate with each other in a friendly or absurd manner and discuss work towards more casual conversations and gossip, but if you are talking with a stranger then you have better aware what kind of language you use by using some decent and words on the base of grammatical forms because at that time you are you representing yourself. So try to put your opinions according to the situation while speaking to a stranger and you better know how to deal with the situation.
5. Listen and try to tune out the words
Without listening we can’t speak well because it’s an essential part to know how to speak and what kind of language and accent we used to speak or write. You learn something new every day if you listen, so try to spend most of your time listening to native English speakers, your mentors, some scholars who speak in English and also listen to the English news, watch movies and songs that are in English.
Every good conversation starts with good listening so to beat up your inner artist pay more attention towards your goals to speak English fluently and naturally like a native speaker.
if you don’t live in an English country, then it’ll be very difficult for you to find a natal speaking English person that is more formidable for you, and understanding the language used in TV shows or YOUTUBE is not trouble-free because it’s spoken so swiftly & the expressions are dazed or very arduous to understand. you get confused to understand what is said.
The thing is we never sometimes understand what is said in English movies and songs. it will be hard for us to figure out it at the beginning but with a little practice, it’ll be too easy. you can listen to, songs, and radio show in English about any topic that you are yearning for.
Search for the song’s lyrics that are in English and you don’t understand, so with lyrics, you’ll clearly understand what’s the meaning of the song then next time you’ll never get in trouble to understand the lyrics and meaning of that song. Do the same thing with movies or with any story that is in English just search for the meaning of that word. By doing this you become more efficient and proud in front of those who don’t understand the meaning of that song, movie, and story.
Continuous practice will make help you to understand how English sounds in different countries and how it is spoken by different people. So by doing this, you’ll realize that many foreigners around the globe have accents but they are still understood by natives and can communicate effectively.
Hold out hope to grin and bear it, you’ll be one of them who understand the English native speakers and speak English with a proper accent. naturally or fluently.
6. Try to Mimic and imitate
Nothing is original or in its true form as if we talk about language so many changes occur in it with time. From the age of Anglo- Saxons, and Anglo-Normans whose age we called the old English period. so many changes occur in that age in the English language. There are many accents and words that we didn’t have command of so try to get the knowledge from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination.
Devour old films, new films, paintings, music, songs, photographs, architecture, poems, dreams, random conversations, and everything around you that will help you to get connected with the new words and emerging new things or knowledge. Mimic only those words that you have full command of and are on the top of your interest list. If you know how to mimic or imitate properly any word or character then you’ll learn a language with a proper accent without any trouble.
“It’s not where you take things from- it where you take them to”
Listening and mimicking the melody of the native speakers will help you to be more natural or feel like a native speaker when you speak. You need to mimic the versification of English in sentences. Mimicking precisely how the vowels sound including the pitch rise and fall etc.
When you hark back to the correct sound of English, it is easier for your mouth to sound like that. You just need to work on the melody and phrasing of English and harmonize your ears to hear it and within a short time, you’ll get used to that accent if you’ll starting to use it and be that a part of your routine.
7. Make Use of Gestures
“GOOD WORDS WON’T COVER UP UGLY ACTIONS”
If you put a stop to speaking without making any gesture the other person didn’t understand properly what you said in that way if you use gestures. With good gestures, you’ll console, persuade and put someone in captative charm, that will be your plus point if you better learn to maintain how and when to use what kind of gestures. Sometimes while talking with a person when you didn’t know what to talk about and didn’t use know what to speak and how to use the grammatical form in words properly then at that time your gestures skills hide your inadequacies.
so it’s good to make some sorts of sounds and show gestures to signal that you’re just thinking or that you’re going to finish that sentence, which imposes a great impact on the other person. There are a bushel of juveniles, fortyish, and tricky words in English, so you can use the words sound like ‘umm’ and “err” if you like for the best impression and also use them if you forget a word.
I also recommended you to use the words like “you know”, “I mean”, “As you know” in informal situations that sound satisfactorily copacetic and presenting.
8. Use phrases And morphemes
If you want to sound more natural in English then make sure your idioms are on the point when you’re speaking or writing. To complete a sentence you need to use and combine proper grammatical terms to understand whose subject or object, and what kinds of dialects, morphemes, and idioms are used in that sentence. so we have to use proper grammatical terms to complete a sentence to get the full meaning of that sentence.
When you make mistakes with phrasal verbs, morphemes, and jargon’ it sounds very erratic or unusual and very wicked to a native speaker’s ear because what you speak didn’t understand or will never give its proper meaning. If you nail out these and know how to use them properly you’ll sound more natural and more like a native speaker in a heartbeat!
9. Act like a mummer and thespian
Actors have one mission to study a text and make people believe that what they are saying is real. They do that by using emotions, exaggeration, repetition, and practice.
So it is not written anywhere that others can do but you can’t do it. You just need to polish yourself and try to be an actor, it doesn’t mean you have to work in a theater or docudramas, be an actor or artist on your own and think then try to rehearse whatever you like in English, and most importantly try to mimic your favorite English characters and lines with proper accent and fluency. That will be a little fun because it makes you more confident and exposes your hidden talent. Practice it in front of a mirror or with your friends, cousins, and family, or take part in your university or school extracurricular activities, noncollegiate, and other theatrical performances where you can show your artistic qualities.
When you’re alone or free take a piece of paper and write down an English expression and try to read it until you can say it without looking at the paper. The next step is trying to perform that with different emotions. With practice, you’ll get used to the expression without even having to think about it.
Take out the artist inside you and paint the whole world in the color of your art. You’ll get through this keep trying you’ll make it. Try to follow or mimic your favorite actor that you are inspired by.
10. Start Singing
Singing is the sensational way to get in a good mood and meliorate your English at the same time. It’s an outburst of the soul and it is scientifically proven that that part of our brain that is in touch with music is also active when you process language. Those who listen to music in English tend to have better pronunciation skills and understand other speakers more easily.
Ok! so now you have the power to push English to a much more fluent and natural place. “start the music of learning”
